Go on low tide to Barra and you will find flat water in the well protected lagoona as well as waves in the open sea. Kite Extreme Point offers kite equipment if required, a shower, kite repair (hope you don't need it).

A nice Little fishing village...slow mode just 30-35 km from Pipa. The small bars by the ocean is good and cheap.
