One of the most famous destinations for kitesurfing in the world, we will show you the very best of Brazil with pro-rider Hannah Whiteley, for an insane week of kiting and coaching that is guaranteed to take your riding to the next level.
Over the week you will travel to several of the most famous spots in the region and truly immerse yourself in the Brazilian kitesurfing experience. You will stay in the famous kitesurf city of Cumbuco, Taiba and Preá near Jericoacoara, a vibrant Brazilian surfer village with endless, perfect sand dunes and the ultimate beach-life atmosphere, during both the day and the night…
You’ll get to travel to our handpicked spots while experienced pro rider and coach Hannah Whitely will kite and work with you personally, and use her years of experience to help you to improve your technique and add some new tricks to your repertoire, whether that’s your first handle-pass, or adding some all-important meters to your WOO height!
Whether you’re a seasoned Brazil tripper or this is your first time visiting this kitesurfing nirvana, this will be the experience of a lifetime!
Pro kiteboarder Hannah Whiteley is well known for her strong multi-discipline style and her excellent coaching skills. She has been a regular feature on the PKRA and GKA tours, including finishing as runner up in 2016. She has now turned her attention to Big Air where she has been pushing the limits on the female side of the discipline in Cape Town for the last few seasons. Hannah lives and breathes kitesurfing and is the perfect coach to take you through your Brazillian kite odyssey!
You’ll arrive at Fortaleza airport and we’ll transfer you to Cumbuco, a small fishing village and one of the best places to practice kitesurfing in the world, with access to a range of conditions both in the sea or on beautiful flatwater lagoons. Here you’ll meet with Hannah Whiteley and all the other participants, and have some time to discuss the week ahead and the goals you’d like to set yourself. Then, come the evening, you have the option of eating in one of the many fantastic restaurants or enjoying other activities in this vibrant village.
Every morning you’ll enjoy a warm-up stretch or yoga before you start your busy day on the water. At the beach you’ll enjoy four hours of coaching – two from Hannah Whiteley and then another two hours from a second highly-qualified coach. In the evenings you’ll get to discuss your time on the water, and figure out any technical improvements to work on for the following day. Then, as the sun goes down, you’ll enjoy a buggy ride through the dunes as a unique way to enjoy the sunset.
Natural pools, cliffs, dunes and lagoons are just part of the beautiful and natural landscape of Taíba, unspoilt by tourism, full of coconut trees and with plenty of opportunity to enjoy yourself! Your days will kick off once again with some physical preparation, and then it’s back to the warm waters to enjoy another four hours of high-quality coaching from Hannah and the second coach. That evening you can debrief and decide what you will work on next to really achieve those goals by the end of your stay.
Preá is a beautiful fishing village that also doubles up as one of the stops on the GKA Kite World Tour, and a spot where the wind is both the strongest and the most consistent along the entire Brazilian coast. 15km of sandy mean that you’ll get the most choice for your spot of the day in Preá, as you continue your coaching with Hannah and the trainers, and then round off your final night with an end-of-trip party in Jericoacoara!
