Kite trip to Brazil

Posted by kite2012 On December - 12 - 2014

Brazil is great destination for kite surfing vacation. Wind every day at season wide sandy beaches warm weather , good facilities and pleasant atmosphere. Except the super reliable wind, the main attraction of kiboarding in Brazil is the batter flat lagoons and the great downwinders.

Brazil is suitable for everybody: beginners can learn to kite in the lagoons and pro’s can enjoy the endless hours of kitesurfing in best conditions. Families that enjoy (windy) beach life will be happy here, and girls alone will feel great.

Kite lagoon at north Brazil

There are many shallow rivers in the kite area in north Brazil, creating a lot of lagoons. The Lagoons near the beach, get the wind from the sea, creating paradise condition for free style kite boarding. The most famous kite lagoon is Cauipe lagoon in Cumbuco. Great place to kiteboard and chill out while watching local and pro’s puling some tricks. You can get to the lagoon by fun 1 hour down trip from the village, and get back with one of the buggy’s available here all day.

Downwind kite trips at north Brazil

The kite area in north Brazil has hundred miles of wide sandy beaches habitat with mainly small fisherman villages. That plus the fact that winds blows constantly from side ti side-onshore direction, allows you to kite downwind along the beach for days.  The best way is to have a buggy or a pickup escorting you on the beach. Buggy’s and pickups are not cheap in Brazil, so If you are young and restless, you can kite to the next village, and come back by bus. Just don’t forget your flip-lops.

There are many great small downwinds of 10-20km that you can do daily. The most popular is the 6-8km downwind from Cumbuco to Cauipe lagoon, no transport is needed, just go and take a buggy back at the lagoon. Taiba to Paracuru is amazing downwinds for kitesurfing wave. And you can go for the big downwind (250km)  from Cumbuco to Jericoacoara, or even bigger until Barra Grande, sleeping each night at a different village. You can join an organized doanwind, or organize one yourself.

Malin Amle is a norwegian girl that shot this great video during her recent season in Cumbuco, Barra Nova, the famous kitesurfing spot in Brazil! You can check out Malins homesite here www.malinamle.com for more photos and videos of her.

I´m currently thinking that I perhaps should I fix her wordpress site. It´s not the best looking design and a girl in that class deserves something better imo! Besides it´s christmas after all!
