BRAZIL: Cumbuco, “The Windy City”

Think Brazil and what comes to mind? Football, Ronaldo, Rio, Carnival, Girls in small bikinis…… Well yes, Brazil has all this plus some of the hottest kite locations in the world; the northeastern corner of Brazil is where our Kite-Safaris Downwind Tours take place.

With consistently smooth winds between 15 and 30 knots (July through to January). We recommend that you bring kites from 6m up to 12m for the average weighted rider of 80 kilos, the local riders are usually are sailing with 11 or 12m kites in Cumbuco down to 7m to 9m kites in Jericoacoara.

(We would like to state that our Kite-Safaris are designed for kiters with a kiting ability of intermediate and above, and are capable of self-resucue) .

Cumbuco is a small fishing village 25 km north from the capital city of the state of Ceara, Fortaleza. In the area around Fortaleza is Cumbuco one of the best places to stay, with its uncrowded sandy beaches and coco palm trees everywhere. Characteristic for Cumbuco is how it is situated. At one side the blue sea at the other side the massive sand dunes. The quaint centre of Cumbuco is build around a town square like is traditional in Brazil. In the middle of this town square is a football field where they play football every afternoon!

BRAZIL: Prea – Jericoacoara, “A natural paradise of Non-stop wind”

Jericoacoara is a beach located in the northeast of Brazil, close to the equator. It was, till about 15 years ago, an isolated fishing village, without any contact with modern civilization. There were no roads, no electricity, no phones, no TV’s, no newspapers, and money was something almost useless, since deals were based on trading fish for goods.

In 1984 the place was declared an "Environment Protection Area" by federal law. Although tourism has reached the place, because of it’s extraordinary beauty, it still keeps the unhurried and peaceful way of life. Because of the EPA law, it is forbidden to hunt, pollute, make roads, and buildings are limited to the village. The last 15 km on the way to Jericoacoara is soft sand, so you need a 4WD vehicle to get there.

Until the beginning of 1998, electricity was supplied by diesel generators. Today, there is an underground power supply, only for the houses. Street illumination still comes from the moon and the stars.

In 1994, the North-American newspaper "Washington Post Magazine" chose Jericoacoara as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches of the world
