During the season we enjoy a steady onshore wind which is supposed to be the most consistent on earth. It's perfect for riding long distances along our beautiful coastline. Mostly sandy and free of long rocky cliffs the area between Cumbuco and Atins makes for some fun and rather safe open water kiting conditions. The water is warm, so you can leave your wetsuit at home and enjoy the waves wearing only boardshorts and a lycra to protect you from the sun as we'll be out all day. It's a transformative experience when you feel like one with the ocean after a long day out and need to adjust to being back on steady ground. While out kiting you can focus entirely on your ride as we take care of everything else. For your safety the group will always be accompanied by two guides and a professional rider who will assist you if you like. It's a unique opportunity to boost your technique and confidence all while experiencing Brazil's nature at its best. Also, a 4x4 is going to follow the group along the coastline to provide us with drinks and healthy snacks and give those a lift who might feel like they need a break.
Join us for up to 7 days of awesome kiting, magnificent nature and authentic local experiences. If you want to get to know Brazil from the waterside we have just the right trip for you. Our downwinders vary in routes, length and required experience levels, so we're more than happy to assist you in choosing the right one for your dream vacation.
What they all have in common is a mix of full on kiteboarding, warm turquoise water, great food, cultural immersion and a truly relaxed travel experience.
The wind is in our favor, so you won't need any kites bigger than 11m² - usually a 9 for the guys and a 7 for the ladies will be perfectly fine. Also, a downwinder is the most comfortable if you can enjoy it on a directional with straps as they save heaps of energy. Bring your own ride or rent one of ours. Of course it can also be done on a twintip or you can swap boards in between stops.
We currently offer three different downwinder packages on bstoked:
The Easy Route - Easy level
The Easy Route is perfect for intermediate riders who have some experience in small wave riding and are confident with riding at least 2h per day on a board. The route is short but beautiful and perfect for people who and get a feeling for a downwinder and practice do ride downwind for several hours.
The Classic Path - Intermediate level
This route aims to show you Brazil's coastal life in all its facets and will make you want to come back again and again. It's a 6 day trip which is suitable for intermediate riders. Covering 260km you will experience gorgeous waves, beautiful secluded fishermen villages and authentic Brazilian food.
The tour leads us from Cumbucu to Preá, exploring the coast of Ceará with its turquoise waters and sandy beaches. Our final stop is the beautiful Rancho do Peixe, a serene beachside hotel with all the amenities one could wish for. From here it's just a a short drive to Jericoacoara or "Jeri" as most of you might have heard of it. It has a special "edge-of-the-world" feel to it, so make sure to factor in some extra time at the end of your trip for a visit.
The Delta Route - Difficult level
The Delta Poldros Experience is a 7 day trip which is suitable for intermediate riders. The 270km long adventure leads us all the way up from Camocim to Atins. This area is known for the Delta of Pernaiba, a true Brazilian treasure and a must see for the avid wilderness seeker. For those especially interested in exploring our beautiful nature there is also the option to arrange a visit at the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park. This needs to be organized in advance so make sure to let us know if you are keen. The park is famous for its dunes which feature a number of lagoons like the Lagoa do Peixe and the Lagoa Bonita.
