The Windsurfing In Gostoso

The very best wind season for Gostoso is between September and March with 90% super reliable wind ranging from 17 to 30 knots. This really is one of the most wind reliable location on the planet during this period. It is also quite good to travel in mid-August and July although the wind direction can switch quite a lot during this time. For waves the best season is November through to January with super clean 1-2 metre waves on the outer reef.

Generally, the wind direction is side to side off shore; mostly side shore during the main wind period. Mornings and late afternoon can switch a bit side off. Of course, as with all of our partner windsurf centres, we ensure good safety cover for all of our clients. 

There is a variety of conditions from shallow flat water through to small clean waves. Planet Windsurf work with 2 different windsurf locations, depending on your accommodation choice and windsurf level. When making your holiday booking to Gostoso we can advise you on the best location and windsurf centre for your requirements

Gostoso Nightlife

Gostoso is a great place to be in the evenings for a relaxing few beers, maybe a BBQ, and then a restful night to set yourself up for another hard day on the water. There are a few lively bars on the weekends with live music. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, with everything from pizzerias to traditional local restaurants serving mouth-watering Brazilian specialities and plenty of fresh seafood.

See What Our Clients Say

We booked a tailormade holiday package to Lisbon and Brazil. All components were as expected and worked well. We discussed various options for the trip with Planet Windsurf - flights, hotels, transfers. Flight timings offered worked well and Planet Windsurf advised against car rental in Brazil which was good advice as getting lost is highly likely. We stayed in three hotels in three locations - all very different, all providing excellent services and all in good positions. In each case the accommodation was spacious, well maintained and with comfortable beds. The windsurfing in Gostoso is good and challenging. My level of skill will probably never be good enough to get the best out of it but a great fun experience to try. The Windsurf Centre is excellent with a fantastic equipment range, very professional and patient instruction and a friendly and welcoming ambience.
