It's hard to find Ceara´s kitesurf conditions in other parts of the world. During the season, from June to February, the constant side on shore wind blows almost every day. You can kite from around 10/11 am in the morning until 5/6 pm at night. With a wind speed between 20 and 35 kt, we recommend women to bring kites between 6 and 9 meters, men between 8 and 10 meters. The water temperature doesn't vary much - with 28 degrees you can leave the wetsuit at home. ;-) The water is mostly shallow or choppy; depending on spot and downwind trip you get to enjoy some waves as well.

The Destination

Prea is a small fishing village located just at the entrance of the beautiful Jericoacoara National Park. It's a place where you can turn off your phone and disconnect from everything. The kite conditions in Prea are truly unique, it's the most reliable spot on the coast. Beaches are wide and mostly empty and you'll have a lot of space in the water to kite all day long. If you would like to enjoy a vibrant place with lots of bars, restaurants and nightlife, then Jericoacoara is just a 20-minutes buggy-ride away.

The Experience

Do you want to disconnect and spend some days at a place that is a true kite surf paradise? Do you want to be amazed by Brazil's Northeast coast while learning new kite surf skills and techniques that allow you to enjoy yourself on the water even more? Then read on.

Windspirit Kite Experience is a kite surf school located in Preá, just next to famous Jericoacoara and about 4 hours from Ceará's capital Fortaleza. The school provides kite surf lessons, downwinds, kite trips, equipment rental, storage and any kind of service related to this amazing sport.

Joining one of our kite camps gives your the opportunity to improve your kite surf skills and learn new techniques to master any downwind trip with ease and peace of mind. You'll have practical as well as theoretical lessons, led by the owner of the school and his experienced team. During this 5-day-experience you will certainly notice you own progress, being able to go on a downwind of more than 30 km along the coast.

As our local Kite Camp base we chose the beautiful Villa Pinolo in Preá: http://villa-pinolo.ceara-hotels.com/pt/ This bright and tastefully decorated Pousada is located right in front of the beach and the kite spot. When you are not out in the ocean with your kite, you can relax by the pool and enjoy the tranquility of the place (or some caipirinha ;) ).

While Preá is the perfect place to relax and forget about the outside world, Jericoacoara, which is only 20 minutes away, offers a buzzing nightlife with amazing bars and restaurants. And of course, the stunning Jericoacoara Nationalpark with its wide sand dunes and beautiful sunsets.

Patricia is your host for this experience and will provide you with all the information needed.

Hi, my name is Patricia and I am extremely passionate about Brazil and Latin America. After having traveled a lot I decided to stay and live in Brazil. And well, what can I say, I love it. I work remotely in the social impact and social innovation area, managing projects and creating new opportunities. Because I wanted to emerge myself more into kitesurfing I spent the last wind season in Prea whereby Windspirit Experience got my second home and the place where I felt safe to improve my kite surf skills. And then it happened that I started working for them, too. :)

Tell us more about what brought you to the path that you're on, the "why" behind your business and your offering(s), what excites you most about the work that you do, etc...?

Because of my own experience and journey when learning the sport I can now without any doubt recommend Windspirit Kite Center. It was the place where I finally got confident with kite and board and wind and water - and where I truly evolved while enjoying every moment. I became so grateful for this experience that I started working for them. That's why I am now responsible for the management of the kite camps. So I am happy to answer any questions or doubts. We are happy to hear from you and welcome you soon at one of our camps.
