How to kitesurf in Brazil- My kitesurfing experience

  • Cumbuco village in Brazil is a small kitesurfing paradise, the small town is located strategically between the southern sand dunes and the Atlantic ocean.

Key points from my kitesurfing day

  • I had to eat breakfast from my hotel room since most restaurants at the shore open at around midday.
  • There's a lagoon some few miles from Cumbuco called Lagoa de Cauipe, here the winds and waves are strongest and only experts should try kitesurfing here.
  • This place is ideal for training (you train with experts, some of the best kitesurfers in the world are born and hail from here)
  • Since there are many people kitesurfing, kitesurfers have to be careful and prevent their kite strings from tangling with strings of others to avoid the occurrence of accidents.
  • There's a row of beach bars and restaurants at the shore where you can sit and look at people kitesurf while enjoying Brazilian dishes at a fair price.
  • At sunset, most surfers pull down their kites leave. The winds are too strong at this time so DO NOT KITE SURF AT NIGHT.
  • Surfers carry their kites home. It's quite safe to leave your kite at the shore but why take the risk?
