The Pousada chic propose accommodation and stays kitesurfing lessons with IKO qualified instructors speaking English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.. To start set your level:
 

Level 1 Beginner,
At this level, you can practice various competencies on the sand that will be then transferred to the water for the next level. The competencies include wind assessment systems, security, configuration management, appropriate equipment, and control the steering of the kite. This level 1 is probably the most important step of your training!

Level 2 Intermediate,
At this level we go to the water. You practice the techniques learned in Level 1 but this time with full power and water. Your instructor will show you how to access the power of control by letting slip with and against the wind. Once you have mastered these competencies, you are ready to start working with the board.

Level 3 independent,
Now you're at the stage where you can start tweaking your style, upwind until it becomes second nature to you. You can also enjoy the navigation switch and start your first jump. This level focuses on the advanced competencies that will help you achieve independence on the water.

Barra Grande is located in one of the most beautiful kite spots in the world, and the PKRA had already nailed it in 2008, when one of the stages of the contest was organized in the region. Here, no worries with the wind. The trade winds and the thermal winds are pretty constant, from 15 to 32 knots from July through February, with ambient temperatures from 28°C (82,4°F) to 32°C (89,6°F), and from 26°C (78,8°F) to 28°C (82,4°F) for the sea. What makes Barra Grande attractive is that it has 3 exceptional kitesurf spots, making it possible for you to choose where you will sail, according to the tides and what challenges you have in mind.
  • The bay , thanks to its configuration, is a very secure water body, with a side wind. It can be sailed at all tides, with a preference to when the water is from 0.5 m (1.64 ft) to 1.5 m (4.92 ft) high. This way, beginners can benefit from a large learning zone and the most skillful from a really flat body of water.
     
  • The lagoon can be reached downwind in 10 minutes, after crossing a sand bar. It is huge and never gets empty because it is fed by the sea and the Camucim river. The wind blows offshore, so the essential safety rules must be followed. So that you can completely enjoy this spot, you will have to sail it at high tide, which is also a mark of respect to the local fishermen who fish there at low tide. To return, you have two options. The first one is the sportive way : go Upwind. It will take you between half an hour and an hour, depending to your skills. The second option is the local way : a donkey and a authentic carriage. This is really fun and secure.
     
  • The « Boca », scan only be sailed at low tide. You get there in a 15 minutes downwind, again depending on your rythm and skills. On the way, you will pass by the remains of a shipwreck and through secret passages in 20 to 50 cms (7.87 to 19.68 in.) of hot crystal clear water. Then, at the turn of a dune, you will discover one of the vast crystal clear, glassy natural pools. For most visitors, this is an everlasting feeling of fresh adventure.

    If you prefer waves,
    some really good spots are at your disposal an hours drive from the pousada, such as Pedra do Sal where the surf championship often stops.
    If you would rather go on an adventure, nothing more simple, get on a fast boat, land on a sand bar, set up your bivouac and engage in a session between flat water and small wave lines.
