June should be fine windwise, July even better.
Yes, you need to fly, it is several thousand km away!
Tam and Gol will be fine.
Check on www.splocs.com for spots around Rio...they also have a huge lagoon close by.
Not sure about the wind at that time, but read thru splocs for more info.

My initial thoughts were to do a week in Rio and then leave them there and fly up to Fortaleza on my own for a few weeks n head to those lagoons at Cumbuco. Assuming flying's the best option, who's the best company for getting about internally in terms of price and taking kite gear and what sort of price should i expect for rio to fortaleza? I'm guessing prices are gonna be jacked up because of the football but i've heared as long as your not following the games/fans directly prices should'nt be too bad? Also, what's the kiting like in Rio - plenty of spots i'm assuming? It's all just ideas at the moment but any tips/advice/info any of you might have will be appreciated. cheers.
