Cauipe Lagoon

The Cauipe lagoon is just across the sand and have constant wind. It´s standing-depth and can handle about 30 kites. Unfortunately there can be 40+ by noon as both beginners and freestyle pros practise here. The beach have a nice area for kite launching and landing without obstacles like buildings, etc.

It’s perfect flat water with some areas which can be shallow. In off season (February – September) there you will find only few kiters. Cauipe lagoon is quite good place where you can start with learning your first kite steps, but you should be careful when there is a lot of kiters. Strongest winds are around September.


Cumbuco have sandy long beach that extends for over 5km. It can handle, without any problems, more than hundred kiters. The gently shelving seabed ensures conditions are always easy going despite the chop and shorebreak that often develops towards high tide. North of the village the waves build up to head-high, offering a shred-fest downwinder until your legs give way.

Cumbuco is starting point for some of our guided kiteboarding downwind tours – Cumbuco to Jeri and Cumbuco to Parnaiba.
