TH E L AG OO N For a winter getaway, it doesn’t get a whole lot better than Brazil. Which is why it’s become such a popular migratory option for European and North American kiters. With greatness, however, comes busyness, so a few years back when Alex Maes discovered a spot with the same conditions as the famous lagoons a little further north, but with none of the crowds, he realized he was onto something special. Alex and Annelous Lammerts returned a few years later, fell in love with the spot again, and never really left. Jump forward three years, and the perfect lagoon is now home to a slider park, and has just hosted a KPL stop. It’s been quite a journey. photos : Andre Magarao
