Downwind Routes

The adventure was planned to meet the kitesurfers that enjoy long-distance downwinds (kite trip). Our itinerary, meets very favorable conditions for the accomplishment of great downwinds besides presenting an exuberant natural beauty. Tourists are dazzled by the number of kites sailing in the waters of the Brazilian northeast beaches, mainly in Ceará.

Route Description:
  • Downwind from Jericoacoara/CE until Atins/MA.
  • Estimated duration for 4 days (4 hours of sailing per day) plus one day in Atins to know the Lençóis Maranhenses. Scheduled date: start on Septermber, 4th and return on Septermber, 8th;
  • During the course will be held strategic stops for rest, hydration and food.
  • Warning – To accomplish the planned trip it is essential to have good wind conditions every day. In case of no wind conditions, the group may have to decide to wait one day or go by car. This situation will result in additional cost on our kite trip;
