Hi, is possible to kitesurf in Cumbuco but not on the lagoon ?
I mean is there a good spot to do that on the ocean ?

Is it choppy/wavey or rather flat?

I will appreciate any advices

funny, people think Cumbuco is just the lagoon and fully crowded...

it is a 20 km long beach!!!

The lagoon is full in November, but the ocean NEVER is !

Along the 20km from Tabuba until the lagoon you will find sweet 1-2.5m waves.
Best waves in Tabuba and in front of Vila Gale (about 500-700m upwind of Cauipe lagoon).
Also during swell in front of Duro Beach (stay out of the way of the guy with the 18 sqm kite! :naughty: )

In front of the main village the water is rather choppy, with small rolling waves, not clean.
During swell things look different (Nov-Mar). Low tides are soother than hightides, so is the shore break.

CU there! :thumb:

Hi, many thanks for reply.

Do u know the spot next to Paracuru - Quebra Mar ? If so, is it comparable with ocean spot in Cumbuco ?
People tell me that this one is less choppy and wavey than in Cumbuco.

Im asking because im already here 1 week and soon wanna move somewhere else.

Paracuru has the best waves along the coast.
During low tide flat like a lagoon, watch out for flat rocks at lowest tides, then ride further upwind.

The ocean in Cumbuco is choppier and less good waves.
But half the way downwind to the Cauipe lagoon, there are sweet waves too, and normally less crowded then Paracuru.

Taiba also has nice waves! When a swell hits not that easy to rise though.

Cumbuco is more relaxed for beginners, since pass the shorebreak on high tide it is more relaxed without breaking moves. More rolling and choppy.
