Went there today after looking for a spot during 1 day. I'm so glad I found this school ! They are a great and extremely nice team ! They even offered me to take me back home to Rio as I had to go by bus and they were going there by car. I really recommend this place even if you don't take lessons but just prefere to be on a spot with other kitesurfers. The hotel and hostel, bar, snack are really cool as well.
It´s an awesome place to learn kite surfing and to improve your skills if you just started kite surfing on your own. The water in the lagoon is very dead so you can stand almost everywhere, there is always wind (we had always at least about 18 knots, rather more) so perfect conditions to start this sport and practice it. Leo, running this kite surfing school, is the best teacher and motivator I´ve ever seen. Very nice, sympathetic guy who will support you not only in kite surfing but also in any other matter that might occur (where to have dinner, what´s the best equipment for u, where and how to go to your next destination and so on and on). Also all the other staff is very nice and helpful, but its better for you speaking Portuguese to get in touch with them ;P. Furthermore it´s a very very nice place, great accommodation. The entire school building including all the room were just built in 2005, so it´s very new, very beautiful and very safe and clean. The only and best advise we can give regarding kite surfing in Brazil is: GO THERE! GO UPWIND! ENJOY! We really can´t wait to go back there and meet all the nice people again and go on kite surfing - pure AWESOMENESS
