Brazil is a magic dream for every kitesurf-traveller!

Author: KSUTarifa

This is a motto of our project.

Everyone who has ever touched the world of kitesurfing has heard about the amazing wind statistics in Brazil and its endless flat water at least once, and has certainly wished, in a dream or in reality, to visit this undeniably beautiful place!

The wind in Brazil is constant, strong and of very “good quality” – kitesurfers definitely know what it means=)

Air temperature is around 30 degrees, and water temperature is around 28 degrees (you won’t need a wetsuit even if you always get cold like I do!)

We are going to visit the most famous beaches on the northwestern coast, where you can  always meet many kitesurfing stars. They are very friendly and sociable people. You’ll not only be able to watch them do various tricks, but also to get acquainted with them personally!

There’s no need to tell you about all the amenities which Brazil can offer – multiple bars on the beaches with crazy parties, local fruits grown in abundance, and of course muscular Brazilian guys and hot Brazilians girls!

Our plan

We shall travel along the coast for almost 600 km from Fortaleza to the north with five stopovers in local hotels – “posadas”. We shall visit twelve most interesting spots for kite riding. 

Our trip includes a travel video. We also provide professional advice from a Pro-rider Anton Chernyshov. If necessary, Anton can also provide personal training (all kinds of stylish tricks: kite-loops, high jumps, hangs, all sorts of rotations and slides)

All the tricks that you have ever seen on the Internet or on the spots will be explained to you down to the last detail by Anton, who has a “PhD in kitesurfing”

He has been working on the kitesurfing video-tutorial for 2 years, that includes the most detailed break-down of technique and style. I don’t know anyone who could have done it better and more professionally!

For beginners and before your first unhooked jumps – I am Ksusha Ksu at your service. I don’t need to introduce myself to those who already know me personally. For everyone else I can say that I’ve got a lot of experience and over the years I have developed an individual approach to any student (more than 10 years of teaching, certified, and standardized).

Our goal

We all really love to ride. Our trip does not have a commercial purpose (we do not intend to teach a large group of beginners). We want to gather people that are close in spirit and love travelling. However, additional training can be booked, but it should be negotiated individually in advance.

Costs

17 nights (17/10 – 03/11) – 1630 Euro

11 nights (23/10 – 03/11) – 1250 Euro

The prepayment is 50%. The rest is paid one month before the trip. Accommodation includes double rooms with breakfast. We also provide a car for 4 people and record a travel video. It is possible to book a suite or a single room (for an additional fee). Our guide, tips, advice, great company and the wind are for free! Flight tickets, petrol, the entry fee to the national park, associated costs and training are not included in the above indicated cost, training is negotiated individually.

Spots Descriprion

Photo Spot description Location of stay
1 Tabuba.
The first spot on the way from Fortaleza to Cumbuco. A fresh water lagoon. Depending on the season it is about 350 meters wide. Its depth allows you to stand in many places. Famous Toby Brauer films most of his videos here. Perfect flats, the wind is medium strong, suits for freestyle and practicing your new tricks.
Cumbuco
2 Duro Beach.
The “city beach” of Cumbuco town. For many seasons this spot was hosting and still hosts PKRA and nowadays WKC kite freestyle events, though it’s an open-water spot with chop and small waves on the surface. One of the most famous Cumbuco hotels, Duro Beach, is located nearby. There you can switch from riding to having some cocktails immediately after getting back from the water.
3 Lagoa do Cauipe.
Fresh water lagoon, which has served as a decoration for endless number of videos, telling you about pro-riders training right before they conquer the world again. The home spot of Carlos Mario the-all-mighty. The lagoon is about 450 m wide, you can stand mostly everywhere. The wind is often light here, suits good for freestyle trainings, in case if champion traffic is low and there are not too many local 6-year old hotshots, stamping handle-passes under your feet.
Some good fish restaurants on the sides of the lagoon, offering you a fresh catch.
4 Taiba.
Located far from people crowds, this lagoon is well-known among athletes, who practice regularly. Those like the young champion of everything, Mika Sol. The wind is usually stronger, than in Cumbuco, you can easily master high jumps and airstyle tricks here. It’s possible kite in both parts of the lagoon, including that, located behind the rocky bar. It’s a remote spot, known for its own specific atmosphere.
Taiba
5 Paracuru.
The most famous wave spot in the surroundings of Cumbuco. Depending on the tidal phase, the reef produces waves of about one and a half meters high. There is a possibility to try some surf board riding in safe conditions here. The wind is stronger, than in Cumbuco, 7m kites are often in use. There are a lot of turtles in these waters. You can meet all the other sea inhabitants in the menu of a restaurant on the beach, where you have a possibility to have a nice lunch and a shower for you and your equipment. This restaurant, by the way, is the only building for many kilometers around.
6 The lagoon of Ihla de Guajiru.
Quite a big lagoon, that can accommodate almost unlimited amount of kitesurfers, at least more, than few numbers of nearby hotels can receive. One of the interesting details here is, that some hotels inner gardens are situated right on the beach. It means, that after having a lunch, you can make 3 steps to the storage, grab your gear and jump on the water right from the restaurant. The wind blows along the lagoon, so there are no perfect flats here, the water is covered with small chop. However, you can always hunt for flat water on the sides of the lagoon. It’s tide dependent, so it sometimes gets completely dry in the afternoon. For this case, there is so called “secret spot” and it’s 5 minutes away by the car.

7 Prea.
This is the spot, where the wind blows always and likely stronger than anywhere along the northeast coast of Brazil. Ruben Lenten organizes his camps here in autumn and GKA world tour events are being held here as well. Open water spot with wave rolls and endless beaches. There is a famous sea food restaurant on the beach called Rancho do Peixe. People often start a downwinder to Jericoacoara from here. With a stomach full of shrimps in sour cream sauce.
Jericoacoara
8 Jericoacoara.
The “city beach” of famous town on the sand, Jericoacoara. Because of the cape, where Jericoacoara is located, this spot has cross off-shore wind, which is quite rare for Brazil. For this reason, you can see some pure ocean swell waves, unmodified by the wind. The water is flatter than in Prea, and there are only very few kiters out on the water. It is a legendary spot, from which the windsurfing movement in Brazil has developed.
9 Guriu.
Available with 4X4 car, this spot is famous for its exotic dead forest on the beach. You can kite right in the lagoon, which is crossed with small rafts carrying cars from one side to another. If you want, you can even jump over one of them, like Ruben Lenten did. There is also another flat-water spot behind the sand bar, which shows up during low tide. One of the windiest spot on the northeast coast of Brazil.
10 Tatajuba.
This spot is located in the river mouth, where it falls into the ocean. This place is known for strong winds as well. The current record of Brazil for kite jump height was set here by a Core team rider. You can get by 4X4 here or by downwinding with a kite from Guriu. The only good flat water laggon in Jericoacoara surroundings. This is a very remote spot, surrounded by sand dunes.
11 Camurupim river mouth.
10 minutes of donkey carriage ride away from Barra Grande town (cars on the sand are prohibited in this part of Brazil) there is one of the best spots on northeast coast of Brazil. A big lagoon behind the sand bar offers very good opportunities for flat water kiting. Small mangrove bushes inside of the lagoon are there to complete the atmosphere of a big kitesurfing playground. The strong wind and flat water allow you to work on the most impressive big airs, kiteloops and slides.
Barra Grande
12 Macapa.
5 minutes downwind away from Camurupim lagoon there is a spot, formed by a big number of sand bars, showing up from the water in different configurations, depending on the tidal phase. Bars vary from several centimeters to one and something meter high, they are not blocking the wind at all, it stays strong and clean, making this spot one of the best ones in whole Brazil. During any phase of a tidal cycle you can find a flat water spot here to practice your favorite tricks until you are completely exhausted. It takes about 10-15 minutes to get back upwind to Camurupim lagoon.
