This is the principle of kitesurfing, which adds a 'pipa' (kite) to traditional surfing, allowing take-off. Sport, which is a mixture of surf, windsurf and wakeboarding. He's still young, but he's already won fans around the world.
Florianópolis, of course, could not be left out of the Brazilian kitesurf circuit. The natural conditions for the sport are excellent for beginners and advanced levels. Those who take a risk in the sport in Floripa still splurge on a look that mixes beaches, mountains, dunes and lots of beautiful and tanned people.

The incidence of Atlantic winds offers favorable conditions until March. The annual average of days suitable for kitesurfing is 250 days, practically 70% of the year.
Where: The strategic position of Florianópolis provides the practice of kitesurfing in more than 30 different spots. The city's hot spot for water sports enthusiasts is the Conceição Lagoon. The large saltwater lagoon accommodates windsurfers all year round, see her, kayak, jet ski and of course kitesurfing.
