Kitesurfing in Lagoinha is fantastic – nice wave spots, beach breaks, and great flat water lagoon 3km downwind. Truly a complete menu of different conditions, all at their best, never crowded, and accompanied by perfect steady wind, which blows 18-28 knots or even more, all day in weather conditions of 25-27°C ocean and 26-32°C air temperature.
The best area to kitesurf right below the village starts in front of the restaurant and pousada called Kite Point. The beach is wide and sandy with lots of space to organize the gear in a cultural setting – Lagoinha is a popular day destination for Brazilians. Once set, you can opt from staying in the chop, looking for the waves a bit upwind or heading downwind to play in the lagoon.
The wind direction is side shore, changing to side onshore in the afternoon. You will find steady wind in the downwind part of the bay, and gusty with some holes, upwind close to the cliff.
Water conditions vary from small to medium chop, depending on the tides. Near the two cliffs, decorated by palm trees, clean breaks are created. There you can enjoy kitesurfing in side onshore wind conditions, otherwise the wind is sheltered.
Lagoa do Jegue
The Donkey lagoon is set among sand dunes and owned by the wild donkeys. This is your freestyle heaven. Flat water conditions, steady wind, and you can stand almost everywhere. Check the water depth, as it changes every season, depending on rainfall. It is located three kilometres downwind from the village.
