Florianopolis is soooo good I almost hate to mention it. 200+ kiteable days. All kinds of conditions including waves. Perfect weather. Gorgeous modern city. Perfectly safe. Best looking women after Budapest. Brazilians are the nicest people in the world. You have to speak Portuguese though because they hate to speak English or Spanish.

Living in Brazil ! Ceara by choice because of the warm air and water 😉
That’s exactly why I left Germany...it is so different in riding.
Being 48 the wetsuit makes a difference...100% down to 10!

But your summer sounds good...one day I will be there 👍🏻
