All year round there is good kitesurfing in Cumbuco. Best months are August until December. These months you can kite every day with 10,
12 or 14m² kites. In the other months the wind can also be really good.
But do not forget to bring a 16 or an 18m² kite. Behind Cumbuco are some big sand-dunes.
The dunes create some really warm air, which creates daily winds or seabreezes. The wind increases the more North you go. It is not necessary to bring a wetsuit. Almost the whole year the water is 20 to 25 degrees celcius.
Around Cumbuco the beaches are wide and everywhere are places to go kiting. The kitezone is in front of the Eco paradise hotel. Here are the most kiters. But no problem if it gets to busy, Just go up or down wind 150 meters and you are the only kiter. 6 km downwind from Cumbuco is a nice laguna. This is a fresh water laguna called "Lagoa de Cauipe". Here the water is really flat. It's possible to do a down winder from Cumbuco to the laguna. When you do this you will find many waves on your trip there. This takes around 45 minutes. Don't forget to ask somebody to pick you up. The laguna is not so big and also well known by the local kiteschools. So it can be really crowded, especially during weekends.
When you want to have waves just drive North for 1 hour and look for a place called Paracuru. This is one of the best places to go kiting. First 150 meters flat water, after that a perfect breaking wave on some reef. Not the perfect beginners place but for intermediate or advanced kiters a real paradise. Try to be there with lowtide.
