The Kitesurfing In Gostoso

The very best wind season for Gostoso is between September and March with 90% super reliable wind ranging from 17 to 30 knots, so very reliable without being over powerful like in some strong wind destinations. This really is one of the most wind reliable locations on the planet during this period. It is also quite good to travel in mid-July and August although the wind direction can switch quite a lot during this time. For waves, the best season is November through to January with super clean 1-2 metre waves on the outer reef.

Generally, the wind direction is side on through to side offshore; mostly side-shore during the main wind period but it depends on a bit from where you are kiting. Mornings and late afternoon can switch a bit more side off. Of course, as with all of our partner centres, we ensure good safety cover for all of our clients. 

There is a variety of conditions from shallow, flat water through to small clean waves. For lessons there is a dedicated kite training zone with a large area of shallow water and more onshore conditions, so very safe and easy. For bigger waves (up to 2m) there is a great spot around 20 minutes drive away. Planet Kitesurf work with 2 different kitesurf locations / schools, depending on your accommodation choice and kitesurf level. When making your kitesurf holiday booking to Gostoso we can advise you on the best location and kitesurf centre for your requirements.

Gostoso Nightlife

Gostoso is a great place to be in the evenings for a relaxing few beers, maybe a BBQ, and then a restful night to set yourself up for another hard day on the water. There are a few lively bars on the weekends with live music. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, with everything from pizzerias to traditional local restaurants serving mouth-watering Brazilian specialities and plenty of fresh seafood.

See What Our Clients Say

Matt at Planet Kitesurf was very helpful on answering questions on conditions at the two locations I was considering and in helping arrive at a final selection. As a couple, the location gave us everything we asked for. The hotel was right on the beach, quiet and perfect for the total relaxation that my wife wanted and right on the best sailing location and that the master suite was super. On a few days the waves on the reef were superb - it is quite challenging but not overly difficult but a high level of confidence is required. The kite centre owner was great and very helpful and they gave rescue cover. Given that the wind has a habit of switching offshore and dropping dramatically this is reassuring.
