Barra Grande is a very nice Kitespot....with Low Tide its a huge swimming pool with very Windy conditions...Most of the time Sideshore.
So soon the tides comes up the spot converts into a bit choppie.
So soon that you are tired of that kind of conditions you just need to do a downwind about 3 Km,then you cross the beach walking...about 30 mtr..to the Flat and Huge Lagoon.

Windsurf in Barra Grande - This is a new windsurf spot with side shore wind, 25-30 knots from augost to january, ideal for freestyle and speed with 1 meter chop near the coast, and 2 meter wave about 100 meters from the beach. Very funny.
