There are a couple of good kite spots just out of Rio (well about an hours drive). Cabo Frio, with a side shore wind and big (up to maybe 4m) waves and Buzios are on the ocean side and for flat water lagoon lovers try Arubinha a long sand bank spit, and Praia Seca. Lots of kite surf schools are around here but most boat to Arubinha for the shark-free flat, warm water conditions. Experienced guys like Arubinha cause you can jump the sandbank which looks and feels really awesome. This is actually a really good place to learn. Best wind from October to April, but theres still ok wind for the rest of the year, bring bigger kites for the off wind days or to try the less windy spots for variety. Buzios nighlife goes off in season but otherwise is quiet.
