The downwinder with "Downwind Brasil" was one of the best kiteboarding experiences of my life. Great wind, great waves, and mile and mile of untouched beaches (and uncrowded waves!) made it an incredible experience. Fred and Daniel were the consummate hosts and I would highly recommend this trip. Iíll definitely be back.

Really a 5 star trip! First class service, the idea of the super long downwinder is original, the truck was great, and I really liked the safety signals to inform of obstacles in the water along the way. The restaurants all had great menus and a great view, the entire trip was super relax. The downwinder was really well organised and securing which is very imporant for someone that doesn't know the area or the language. I have already recommended it to a lot of people.

Without a doubt, the downwinder we did with Daniel and Fred was the highlight of our Brazilian kite safari: It doesnít get much better than yourself and 3 of buddies, 150 km of pure kiting in the middle of nowhere with some of the most epic conditions, and not even having to bother about staying upwind!!

With the Downwind Brasil crew, you have got great support, local knowledge and a good laugh - I highly recommend this one.

Important Note :

Each trip is custom designed to the kiters level and requirements, then prepared according to the actual weather conditions and scheduled with the tides in mind for the best experience. You should know that these downwinders are not appropriate for beginners or intermediate kitesurfers. There are many areas with waves, fishing boats, "corals" (pointy fishermen sticks) and rocks. Self-rescue, fast relaunch capabilities, and at least 100 hours of kiting experience in various conditions are required to participate in Downwind Brasil's surfaris. Obviously, you should have done at least a few downwinders before coming since the idea is to travel allong the coast..

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.

We recommend 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, spare fins, etc). Keep in mind that there are very few repair shops along the way and at destination.
