I think it is oddly interesting that all of the best US pros are going down to NE Brazil and spending months in the Taiba Lagoon. In my experience, this is one of the smallest and the least exciting lagoons.

Whenever I have passed through Taiba, there are guys that kited in this mini lagoon for 3-4 months and had never gone to any other spots.

Sounds about like Americans. Here in Baja it's the same. There's no wind in LB right now but there are spots less than an hour away that are blowing but everyone just sits in camp or the hotel and waits. No one ventures out beyond the safety of base camp. I don't get it.

the thing is, these pro-guys, they are only kiting maybe, an hour each day. they're not in brazil to see the sites or explore new places to kite. they're just gonna train in consistent conditions in the same spot so they can nail their tricks. and it's not like they're doing these marathon sessions exploring the coast.

in terms of lagoons? i agree, taiba is TINY. i didn't even kite there it was so small, but i can sortof see why they stay there. It's small enough that they can dominate it and keep the beginners and land mowing folk out.

look at a lagoon like cauipe. it's nearly impossible to throw a simple backroll there, there's so many lessons being taught, beginners, cows, kids swimming, horses...

the lf vid is taiba right? i think the naish one might be uruau?

About the same size as the beach at sherman or the island beach where every body jumps back and fourth
Riding used and closeout kites and boards from e-bay,craigslist,ikitesurf, and local surf shops.

That makes sense and Taiba does have a decent nightlife in town. Yes, the LF video is Taiba.
