Búzios, a touristic beach town located 2:30h away from Rio, has one beach called Praia Rasa which is known for kitesurfing. There are even some kitesurfing schools: http://www.kitenews.com.br/buzios/index1.htm The other beaches in Búzios are pretty nice too, less windy for someone just willing to chill out. If you're coming for two weeks, you should definitely spend some days in Búzios.

Well if you are going to Brazil and love kitesurfing you are in the wrong section.You should travel to Cumbuco,Jericoacoara which is in the state of Ceara.But Buzios is fine or Cabo Frio which has alot of wind which is the neigherbour town of Buzios.The only difference is that everything in Cabo Frio is much cheaper than Buzios.

Brazil is a rather large country, the size of the continental U.S. Where do you plan on going so far? And when? Where are you entering the country and how far are you planning on traveling to kitesurf? Fortaleza, for example, is nearly a 3 1/2 hour flight from Rio or Sao Paulo. If you're going during the Southern Hemisphere winter, I would be more likely to suggest the Northeast than at other times.

Alas, the winds shift, and they may end up kitesurfing to Cape Verde.
