Barra Grande is a bit far away from everything, and getting there is not too essay. Its 250km from Jericoacoara, and takes around 3.5h drive, and its 400km from Fortaleza, that takes around 5h drive. Kitesurf scene is not as developed as in Jericoacoara or Cumbuco, so to ride back from a downwind, make reservation for a local donkey. Mind that there is another Barra Grande in South Brazil, so add Piaui  when you Google it.
