Windsurf in Barra Grande - This is a new windsurf spot with side shore wind, 25-30 knots from augost to january, ideal for freestyle and speed with 1 meter chop near the coast, and 2 meter wave about 100 meters from the beach. Very funny.
Visit on the beach Wind Tribe Bar and ospit to Soleil Chalets(dipadave@hotmail.it)
