yes, pretty dry this year, this is why the wind didn't really stop to blow.

Taiba should be closed, but I will ask and confirm.

Hi, there are many other spots than just the "sealed lagoas" in North-East Brasil. Just very close to Taiba, there is Paracuru with a fantastic natural lagoa (not sealed), and that is very much apreciated by beginners or freestylers. And just behind the reef, there is the famous wave spot of Paracuru. Dominique (owner of the pousada Paracuru Paradise, www.paracuruparadise.com)

This sucks, I wanted to stay in Taiba with my girlfriend in October and get her kiteboarding lessons. Since the lagoon is tidal now does that mean that it wouldn't be an ideal spot for a beginner. Any other suggestions or do you think things will change in any way in october or other spots near Taiba will still be good.

Normally those lagoons close again in August.
Wait and see!
