GUSTAVO SIMON
FROM SÃO PAULO

Brazilian champion and current leader of the kitesurf world ranking Carlos Mário indicates two sites: Caucaia (Ceará) for beginners and Barra Grande (Piauí) for skilful kitesurfers

BEGINNER

Caucaia (Ceará)

The Cauipe lagoon at Cumbuco beach has constant, but not very intense winds. Some stretches are shallow, which gives new kiteboarders better support.

BEST TIME from August to November

FROM US$ 48 for one hour lesson

WHO TAKES YOU Vila Galé Cumbuco: (+55 85) 3368-2100

PACKAGE double room at Kariri Beach Hotel starts from US$ 123, breakfast included. Reservations: (+55 85) 3318-7800; kariribeachhotel.com.br

ADVANCED

Barra Grande (Piauí) is considered -along Jericoacoara and Guriú (Ceará)-one of the best location for kitesurfing: it has high temperatures, flat sea and strong winds.

However, it requires attention because the wind can switch from moderate to intense on the same day and the tide changes abruptly

BEST TIME between June and December, during the dry season

FROM US$ 520 a ten hour course

WHO DOES IT BGKite School: (+55 86) 3369-8019 PACKAGE double room at Rota dos Ventos B&B during the weekend with breakfast included for US$ 80. Reservations: (+55 86) 3369-8161
