All this sand used to be water !

Cauipe used to be really big...getting smaller every year :-(

We just hope, that the officials get the permission to take the sand out...but some nature issues...let's hope!!!

main season hitting...water level is very low...very little space.

I recommend everyone, who is not really in need of flattest water, to NOT come to Cauipe.
Already daily many problems with riders and lessons...it's just dangerous these days.
And if you just go back and forth, you will be much safer on the water. Let the good riders handle this with the beginners...surely it's not relaxing!

In November we are having the freestyle world cup in Cumbuco...so many unhookers will go to Cauipe...I also recommend to rather go to Taiba and train there (better wind currently anyway!). Locals give lessons right in the freestyle spot...

Be safe out there...

Locals giving lessons vs entitled Pro riders on holiday…

Hmm it’s not a tough choice.

What was that lagoon before a bunch of foreigners decided it was the free style spot?

Any idea what they are doing Toby? I was at Cauipe a few weeks ago and the lagoon was very very small. I also missed the beer/food shack that used to be on the beach between the lagoon and the ocean. But I know you have to crack eggs to make an omelette, so hopefully the omelette is good!

yes, I know. talking every time I am there with a local who is taking care of it.
Important is to keep the corners for flat water...I will personally be after this.

The lagoon gonna be big! They take a lot of sand away towards the river...making it much bigger there.
Plus 50m on ocean side.

Everyone is very excited about this project. We are very lucky with the new major, who is behind all this.

Right now water is very low, and will get even lower...since sand will be taken out and it will distribute in all new areas.
But, good timing to do it now...before rainy season hits.

There are downwind many barracas where you can sit, relax, eat and drink. All on the side have been taken down, since all are illegal.
soon they should also start to take all old barracas down, and replace them by pretty new ones.

Light gets also installed downwind...let's see if it will be strong enough that even night kiting could be possible!

water level dropping more and more....since a lot of sand gets moved...better go to Taiba or Tabuba lagoon...both have enough water and space.
