After two epic sell-outs clinics, the double looping master Giel Vlugt is joining us again this summer in his home spot – the kitesurfing mecca of Tarifa! 

Giel is an incredible coach and he will share with you his knowledge, passion and experience and push you super hard to help you take your riding to a whole new level. 

The clinic is geared towards anyone looking to improve their freeride and Big Air riding, so whether you are working on your first WOO record or looking to master the Megaloop, this is the clinic for you… During our last clinic with Giel in Cape Town we saw incredible progression from his students, with three of them holding the top positions on the WOO leaderboard for the week. Perhaps you could be next? 

During the week, we will be led by the wind conditions and Giel will take you to the best spots Tarifa has to offer. Off the water, he will run through your technique to help you improve your riding. We will also take you to a padel tennis session too, so expect a week packed with action. 

If you’ve got any energy left at the end of the day, Tarifa in July has plenty of enticing options after-hours… And the wind doesn’t come in until a bit later in the day, so maybe you can manage a couple of nights out in one of Spain’s most famous party towns.

Itinerary

11 November - Arrival day in Cumbuco

Cumbuco is a small fishing village just 25 km from Fortaleza international airport, located between a postcard perfect beach and incredible sand dunes. It is one of the best places to practice kitesurfing in the world, with the best conditions for this sport both in the open sea and in lagoons, and with many activities and excursions to discover. Here you’ll meet with Rita Arnaus 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.

The transfer from Fortaleza airport to Cumbuco is not included, but we can help you organize it. 

Accommodation: Pousada Meeting Point

12 - 13 November: Cumbuco

Every morning you’ll enjoy a delicious local breakfast before you start your busy day on the water. At the beach you’ll enjoy on and off water coaching from Rita Arnaus. In the evenings you’ll get to discuss your time on the water, and plan 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.

Accommodation: Pousada Meeting Point

14 -15 November: Icaraizinho

After breakfast on the 14th November, we will head to our next stop – Icaraizinho.

Icaraí de Amontada, better known as Icaraizinho, has a calm and relaxing beach. It is an amazing kitesurfing spot with constant winds between 20 and 30 knots and water of about 28°C. The site is surrounded by various natural treasures that you can discover during your stay, such as deserted beaches, dunes and natural pools. Around Icaraizinho you have plenty of other kite spots, the whole coast links up into the perfect kitesurfing playground! The beaches of Caetanos, the Barra de Moitas or the spots of Baleia and Mundau are just a stone’s throw away…

Your days will kick off once again with a hearty breakfast, and then it’s back to the warm waters to enjoy another coaching session with Rita. That evening you can debrief and decide what you will work on next to really achieve those goals by the end of your stay.

Accommodation: Pais Tropical

 

16 - 17 November: Préa

We will head to our final stop  – Préa.

Préa 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 beaches and picturesque lagoons amongst the dunes mean that you’ll get the most choice for your spot of the day in Préa, as you continue your coaching with Rita.

The nature is wild, with freshwater lagoons forming between the dunes, and insane sunsets over the sea. International restaurants or small typical barracks with fresh fish will fill you with energy for the next day.

Accommodation: Cabaré Du Vento

18 November: Departure day

Departure to the airport or join us for our 2nd week of Brazilian adventure!

Spots

Cumbuco

This is one of the most famous kite spots in Brazil. World champions are born here, and that’s just one of the reasons why the GKA Kite World Tour stops here every year too!

Icaraizinho

Icaraí de Amontada, better known as Icaraizinho, is an amazing kitesurfing spot with constant winds between 20 and 30 knots and water of about 28°C.

Preá

Close to the famous city of Jericoacoara, Preá enjoys stronger sideshore winds that are perfect for Big Air, powered freestyle, or for throwing down some old school moves. You can also blast a downwinder right into Jeri from here!
