Downwind Brazil: Cumbuco, Jericoacoara, Prea, Guriú & Tatajuba
During this downwind kite camp Brazil we teach you to gain more experience with downwinders and improve your kite skills. We show you the most beautiful kite spots & beaches in the vicinity of Cumbuco & Jericoacoara. Without having to pack and unpack every day, so that you can fully enjoy your kite sessions during the day and relax in the evening with breathtaking sunsets and get acquainted with the Brazilian lifestyle.
The kite spots & downwinders
The northeast of Brazil is known for its reliable winds, from July to January the wind blows daily between 20 and 30 knots on the coast. Here you really don’t have to wonder whether it will be windy the next day, just what size kite you will be sailing with. Together with its elongated pristine beaches, this makes it the best destination in the world for a downwind kite camp.
The first days our kite instructors will teach you how to make downwind turns, improve your kite/board control and how to do a self-rescue. During the downwinders they will further coach and guide you on the water and learn how to sail sideways, ride wave and make a down loop.
In Cumbuco we will get you warmed up for the rest of this trip, we will kite at low tide at the beach of our pousada and start with some short downwinders. Depending on the level of the group we can make these longer. On Monday we will move to Jericoacoara, where we will make longer downwinders.
The main beach of Jericoacoara is reserved for beachgoers, windsurfers and surfers only. For kitesurfing we need to head further around the coast. With Buggy’s we will head south of Jeri (upwind) to Prea. Here at the low tide the water is shallow and provides flat to slightly choppy water conditions. With the tide rolling in you can enjoy some epic kickers and waves. The wind comes cross or cross-onshore from the east, making the whole coastal strip from Prea to Jeri a perfectly safe for downwinders with no obstacles (except for some fishing boats) and consistent wind.
After 2 day’s kiting at Prea and going downwind to Jeri, we head west of Jeri to Guriú or Tatajuba. First we will go downwind to Lagoa de Guriú where you will find the pros practising in this perfectly flat lagoon. Our next downwinder is to Tatajuba which also has a flat-water lagoon. At the end of our downwinders we will drive back to Jeri with our Buggy’s via flourishing mangroves to enjoy the sunset and a delicious meal.
For this downwind kite camp, you need an intermediate to advanced kite level. You must be able to kite independently and sail up-wind. Experience with downwinders is not required, but it is always useful if you have made a downwinder before. If you need private lessons, want to learn special skills or tricks, please let us know in advance so that we can schedule this for you during the trip.
Home base Cumbuco & Jericoacoara
As home base for this kite camp, we have chosen the 2 most popular kite destinations of the northeast of Brazil for you; Cumbuco & Jericoacoara. Here we stay in two lovely pousadas that are the perfect starting point for our downwinders. The first 3 nights we will stay in Cumbuco on Monday we have a transfer to Jericoacoara where we will stay for the5 nights and from where we we organize our downwinders from to Prea, Guriú & Tatajuba.
At a 45-minute drive from Fortaleza airport is the fishing village of Cumbuco with THE perfect kitesurfing conditions. As in most Brazilian villages, the small and cozy center of Cumbuco is located around the main square. In recent years Cumbuco has become a popular holiday destination for both Brazilians and foreign tourists.
Our pousada in Cumbuco is located 50 meters from one of the most popular stretches of beach in Cumbuco. The pousada has a long, expansive swimming pool where you can take a wonderfully refreshing morning dip or walk outside for a dip in the sea.
In 1994, the coast of this village was named one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world and that is certainly in place! Jeri is a real paradise, surrounded by sand dunes and only sandy paths as common roads. The people are friendly and you can see that everything is built with a lot of love. From the adjacent sand dunes you can enjoy a beautiful sunset,
In Jericoacoara we have selected a wonderfully centrally located pousada for you. In the garden of this charming pousada are several fruit trees and shrubs, where you can see the hummingbirds drinking their nectar. The rooms have been furnished with a lot of love and attention and have an outdoor shower. You walk from the pousada to the idyllic beach of Praia da Malhada via a dune path, where you can take a wonderful dip in the waves in the morning.
Get acquainted with the Brazilian lifestyle
Both in Cumbuco and Jericoacoara there are highly regarded restaurants in the evening take you to the best and most fun to enjoy a delicious dinner. After dinner you can dance and drink with the various bands and DJs that perform. In Jericoacoara, where we stay the longest, you have the opportunity to get acquainted even more with the Brazilian lifestyle and you can learn various South American dance styles such as Salsa, Samba, Tango or Forró. You can also take a Capoeira course or join a fun party. But make sure you are fit again the next day for your next downwinder… 😉
