Kite trip and tours in Ceara Brazil

The kiting conditions along the coast range from flat water lagoons to river mouths to huge open beaches with nice clean waves and 'bump & jump' type swells. The kite sizes most frequently used are 7m, 9m and 12m. There are slight variations during the season and beaches so contact us before choosing your quiver.

Most kite safaris last 2 to 4 days, depending on your skills and requirements. Some people will want to kite the entire coast as fast as possible, while others may want to take it easier. It is possible to add non-kite related excursions to enjoy the local culture and the scenery Brazil has to offer, all you need to do is ask.

Keep in mind that the service offered is not a tour, but a DOWNWINDER (also know as kite safaris), with 4 x 4 assistance at all time. You kite along the coast while we watch out for you (advise you where rocks or sticks may be), take pictures and help you with your gear when needed. Approximate time spent on the water varies from 3 to 6 hours daily.

Each safari is custom designed to the kiters level and requirements, then prepared for actual weather conditions and scheduled with the tides in mind for the perfect downwinder. These downwinders are not appropriate for beginners or slightly intermediate kitesurfers. There are many areas with waves, fishing boats, rocks, "corals" (pointy fishermen sticks) and rocks. Self-rescue, fast relaunch capabilities, experience of kiting in difficult conditions and at least 100 hours of kiting on the water are required to participate in Downwind Brasil's surfaris.

It is recommended that all kiters on the trip have a similar level of experience and physical preparation. If one person in the group gets tired or has technical issues during the downwinder, the vehicle will stop to land the kite, pack the equipment, load the kitesurfer and follow the remaining kiters.

In addition to stops for cold waters along the downwinder, the driver can also stop if a kiter needs to adjust equipment (to switch boards for example),

We recommended you bring spare or replacement parts (or additional kites & boards) that may be needed in case of equipment failure or to fit the riding conditions (extra bars and lines, surfboard for waves, etc). Keep in mind that there are very few repair shops along the safari route.
