Most of the time its like in nearly all Ceara Spots...you have strong winds from July to December. However, it is usally 2-5 knots higher than rated in Wind Guroo. As you head North from Fortaleza the wind gets better.
Main direction is east and its cross shore winds.
The Spot is very nice spot since the electrical lines have been removed! Yeahhh!
You will find other places in itarema with better acces...but then better take water with you and some food.
There are several Pousadas that access at low tide, but at high tide it can be dangerous to launch due to the wind shadow, its better to go upwind or downwind at high tide, only 5 in walk, not far at all.
The Lagoon is quiet big and its very nice...most people dont get to see the bottom of the lagoon where it is open to the ocean, its a great spot at low tide with always water and wind. No matter what tide you can kite in Ilha do Guajiru.
Low tide you need to cross over to the little semisland and go into the sea to kite.
In Ilha do Guajiru, Pousada Windy Addiction in Ilha do Guajiru is good to contact for more info on accommodations or reservations or kite lessons. www.windyaddiction.com can make some very interesting trips to that part of Ceara......they are very professional.
