April 8, 2017

Barra Grande Piaui Brazil: The fishing village is authentic, there is a real local life, the beach is huge and quiet, local people are very nice…
And of course, the wind is also very steady and consistent.

Barra Grande is a remote idyllic place far from urban jungle and noise.
Kite or kitesurfing, is now the most popular sport in the city, several inns are ready to receive the sailors from around the world.

Kitesurfing conditions are great : at low tide, the spot is super flat and offers standing-depth water on a long distance.
The water gets really shallow near the shore though, so watch your ankles when jumping… Anyway, conditions are awesome for everyone, beginners included.
At high tide, the spot turns into a huge bump and jump area. There are also lots of downwind opportunities and lagoons in the region
