In Flexeiras, best part for kite surf is between the roundabout and the village. In this part, some areas are protected from the swell by a reef belt, creating lagoon conditions. Water conditions at low tide are flat and shallow in the bay. At mid to high tide,  water become choppy with moderate beach breaks. Fun wave created on the reef belt upwind side of the village,  careful of submerging rocks and fish poles when you go upwind. 

The wind is strong and blows side shore to side onshore around 20-28 knots at season. The wind is gusty and turbulent in front of the village center, and gets steadier downwind. The beach is wide and sandy.
