5 Days Cumbuco to Jericoacoara Downwinder Surf Safari in Northeast Region, Brazil

Guided Surf Safari in Brazil

Kite at various beaches and get to know the most beautiful and famous kite spots in Ceará! You will downwind around 30 kilometers per day from kite spot to kite spot in parallel to the beach. The water is 25 degrees Celsius, the air temperature is 28 to 30 degrees Celsius. Because of your speed, it feels like 23 degrees Celsius and that is just perfect. Imagine how it feels to do this several hours without needing to stop and without needing to work your way back upwind to get back to your starting point, imagine the speed and the waves, and then imagine the comfort of doing that wearing just your bermuda and a lycra. After kiting there once, you will want to come back for sure.

Downwind Kitesafari Surf Camp Brazil Program

Itinerary

Day 1: Cumbuco - Paracuru

You start your downwind kite safari just past the Port of Pecem. Right at the start, some fantastic flat water is awaiting you. You will downwind to Taiba. In the beach area of Taiba, you will find everything you can imagine: it goes from flat water (small pools, a result of low tide) up to small waves and big, clean-breaking waves from one and a half to two and a half meters in height, everything a rider’s heart desires. After a short break in Taiba, you will continue to Paracuru where you arrive in one of the most popular kite spots in the region, the legendary flat water and wave spot all in one.

  • Distance: 28 kilometers
  • Overnight stay: Hotel VentoBrasil, Paracuru

Day 2: Lagoinha - Mundau

Today, you will start your downwinder after a one-hour drive in Lagoinha. Again, you get to know some of the most beautiful wave spots in the region. After 17 kilometers, you will arrive in Guajiru. After a short break, you can choose if you want to continue downwinding for another 15 kilometers until Mundau or spend a relaxing afternoon at the swimming pool in your luxury beachfront pousada.

  • Distance: 32 kilometers
  • Overnight stay: Vila Vagalume, Guajiru

Day 3: Guajiru - Icarai de Amontada

Very relaxed, you continue kiting along the coast with plenty of flat water and small but very long regular waves. You pass by little fishing villages and beautiful sandy beaches lined with coconut trees. In the afternoon, you reach the small village of Moitas. Here, time stands still. In this cozy atmosphere with freshly grilled fish and cool caipis, you feel like staying forever.

  • Distance: 56 kilometers
  • Overnight stay: Laculá Pousada, Moitas

Day 4: Prea - Guriu

After two-and-a-half-hour car drive, you will reach Prea where you start your downwinder. First, you kite to Jericoacoara. In 1994, the U.S. newspaper the Washington Post voted this area as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches on the planet. Jeri is a paradise on Earth. It is surrounded by sand dunes and the roads are made of sand. In the narrow streets, something is always going on and everything is welcoming and built with lots of love. In the evening, the whole village climbs up to the big sand dune next to the village to see the most beautiful sunset. Your final destination today is the river in Guriu, an amazing kite spot, just a few kilometers downwind from Jericoacoara. The downwinder ends in Jericoacoara and you will check out from your pousada the day after.

  • Distance: 33 kilometers
  • Overnight stay: Pousada Chale Creoulo, Jericoacoara

Supporting guides and vehicles

Downwind Kitesafari makes sure you are not on your own when something happens. They always have a guide on the water, to help you avoid the rare rock in the water, and to help you when your material does not. There is also always a Hilux on the beach, close to you with air-conditioner, so you can cool off a bit after hours in the sunshine. There is always water for you on board and some small snacks to keep you going. In some of tours, Downwind Kite Safari uses boats as support instead of a car: this is because it is an area without meaningful roads. Your guides are equipped with speakers and satellite phones. In addition to your guides, the tour is supported by their back-office and that means there is always a fixed point-of-contact to organize things for you while you are kiting; far away from all 'connected' life.

Safety

You are responsible for your own safety in the water and on land. Close attention should be paid to the information provided during the daily morning meeting.

Kite material

You are responsible for your own kite material, such as in case of lost material in the water or forgotten material on the beach / pousada. You are responsible to put your equipment in the provided storage at night. You are also personally responsible for ensuring your kitesurfing equipment is functioning properly.

Note

  • This downwinder is not suitable for beginners
  • You need to be a medium-advanced kitesurfer
  • You did already minimum one long downwinder and you know how to ride toeside, parallel to the beach
  • You must be able to kite safely in waves and in a strong wind and to relaunch your kite quickly out of the water. The downwinders can last three to four hours (with breaks), so you must be fairly fit and have proper equipment
  • On July 24, August 7, September 4, October 2, and November 17 and 18, the downwinders will be held during a higher tide, that means the waves will be bigger. This downwinder is for wave kiters (perfect to join with the wave board).

Location

This surf camp covers several places in the Northeast Region, Brazil including Paracuru, Guajiru, Amontada, and Jijoca de Jericoacoara. Here, in the region, Downwind Kite Safari is talking about 1,000 kilometers of good kitesurfing beaches with good kitesurfing conditions. Beaches are predominantly empty sandy beaches, often lined with palm trees and some low dunes.
