Barra Nova is a perfect spot for all levels of kite surfer, the spot is located at a river mouth which floods a lagoon at high tide. Barra Nova means New Bay in Portuguese, this bay forms one of if not the best flat water spot in North Brazil! The lagoon is almost 1 km across and is shallow, warm, and uncrowded. At low tide there are smaller shallow pools that appear just in-between the lagoon and the open ocean, these pools are perfect for learning or perfecting tricks. Then for the pros we have the open ocean which has fun small waves and chop, this can be great for boosting big airs or riding strapless.
Barra Nova is blessed with non-stop constant 15-30 knot winds which is perfect for beginners and advanced kiters alike! We are located directly at the water front where you can literally role out of your room and kite out the front door!
The village is a sleepy fishing village which is lively on a weekend with locals enjoying the views, and listening to Brazilian tunes at the typical Brazilian Barracas (restaurants).
The beach is expansive and the white sands run as far as the eyes can see in booth direction. Behind the village are some sand dunes just next to the river which can be fun for a buggy trip or even playing on a sand board. River trips are a very popular activity where you can get a different perspective on the area and its nature away from the village.

Of course a trip to Brazil is also not complete with out a downwinder! This coast is famous for its down winders and here in Barra Nova we have some great options. We have a buggy driver on hand who will follow you as you kite down wind to one of our pre defined locations.
We often have a resident yoga instructor staying with us. If you're lucky to be here when this is the case, then you will have the chance to get professional yoga instruction twice daily for 6 days out of the week; a morning before breakfast and an evening session before the evening meal.
Morning Session: Sun Vinyasa practice: the aim of this practice is to activate the body for the morning activities. Its called Sun Vinyasa because the idea is to warm the body doing sun yoga poses that increment the fire of the body. That will activate the practitioners, working strength postures, stretch & many other postures that are called solar postures. This practice will open the day in an energetic way ready for the an action packed day of kitesurfing and fun on the water.
Evening practice: Moon Vinyasa practice: the aim of this practice is to cool the body after an active day. Its called Moon Vinyasa because the idea of this one is to cool down the body doing lunar yoga poses that calm down the body & relaxes it. That will lead to calm down the practitioners so that they can relax & get ready to have a good rest and be ready to kite again the following day.
