Rio Guriú   r  i river mouth. Nice spot 10km downwind from Jericoacoara. Wind direction is side shore to side onshore. Flat water in the river mouth at low to high tide, and wind waves in the ocean.

Downwind to Rio Guriú . The first part is better run straight through, its mainly challenging, and not much fun. The wind is strong and very gusty. The wind gets more constant and turn more onshore, in the second half of the downwind, around the end of the bay. If you don't have a ride, mind that all 4x4 vehicles, cross Rio Guriú at the raft point. So you can catch there a ride back to Jericoacoara.    

Tatajuba lagoon. Flat water inside the lagoon, and small win waves on the beach. Wind is strong and might be gusty, depending on direction and location in the lagoon.
