I am not there yet, but heard the wind is very strong currently, and still days with rain.
No idea with the lagoons...go early in the morning, then they will be empty and the wind not too strong.

Been here for 4 x weeks. Definitely worst start to the season since I started coming here, this is my 11th trip over 8 years at this time of year.

Lots of cloud plus more rain than normal, almost daily - today no different.
This seems to have affected the usual cycle of a.m. cross off /pm cross on wind - have unusualy had a lot of cross/slightly off wind in the afternoon creating dodgy conditions launching, and along the waveline, but OK a bit further out.
Looks like dodgy shore line conditions have been giving the kite schools headaches.....

Cauipe full, small lagoon at Tabuba? still tidal - don't know about Taiba.

Have still managed to kite an average 6 days/week.
Been using mostly 12.0 and 10.5 (Naish Cults), but on Wednsday was a little ovepowered on 9.0, was gusting to 35 knots but mellowed to high 20's after 1 hour.

Just looked out my 20th floor apartment window in Fortaleza and all 4 x wind turbines are stationary and water is glassy, have NEVER seen that before:-(

BUT stil got 5 x weeks to go and Ceara has never let me down so am sure it will only get better:-)
