After our epic clinic last year, we are heading back to Brazil with freestyle superstar Rita Arnaus for an insane week of riding and coaching in the most famous destination in the world of kitesurfing.
Over the course of 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 towns of Cumbuco, Icaraizinho and Prea in Jericoacoara, a vibrant Brazilian surfer village with endless, perfect sand dunes and the ultimate beach-life atmosphere, both in the day and at night…
You’ll get to travel to our handpicked spots while experienced pro rider Rita Arnaus 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 rider Rita Arnaus has been lighting up the freestyle scene for many years now, as well as being one of kiting’s most recognised ambassadors. A podium regular, Rita was crowned Vice World Freestyle Champion in 2021 as well as Spanish Champion. After our successful clinic in 2022, we are stoked that Rita is joining us again to share her passion, style, knowledge and years of experience with you.
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
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.

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
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
