Yes, you read it right. Marc Jacobs will be riding with you on one of the most amazing downwinders in all of Brazil! A truly insane week of action (on and off the water!) is waiting for you…

This epic 7-day downwinder from Preá to Atins covers almost 300 kilometers along this beautiful tropical coast. Keeping track of you along the way will be our 4×4 vehicle on the land, and experienced instructors and guides on the water and, crossing the Delta do Parnaíba. To end the trip in style, you will then have your own final day photoshoot in the famous natural park of Lençois Maranhenses.

Spaces are strictly limited to 10 to ensure safety and that you get the maximum time riding with Marc.

We expect this to be a super popular clinic, so please book asap to lock in your slot!

The Coach

Marc Jacobs

The iconic Marc Jacobs finally saw his lifelong dream become a reality this year, winning the Red Bull King of the Air. The culmination of a lifetime spent dedicated to kiting….

Marc brings the same passion for his own riding to his coaching so you can expect to be spending time with the most committed and dedicated coach. He will be with you throughout the 300km journey and will have your back, as well as keeping an eye on your riding and using his incredible knowledge of kitesurfing to help take your riding to the next level. There will also be the chance for a specific goal-focused session with Marc to enable you to focus on elements of your riding you would like to improve or to help with any freestyle or Big Air tricks you are focused on getting dialed.

Spots

Preá

Close to the famous city of Jericoacoara, Preá enjoys stronger sideshore winds that are simply perfect for Big Air, powered freestyle or just for boosting into the sunset!

Tatajuba lies around 30km north of Jericoacoara, a famous and vibrant Brazilian town. Tatajuba is known for its peaceful surroundings and will be the stop for the first downwinder.

Barra Grande

Barra Grande has perfect kite conditions and butter-flat waters.

Atins

Atins is a small fishing village located on the coast of Maranhão, surrounded by the dunes of the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park. It’s a special place, right at the delta of the Preguiças River, a small creek, and the Atlantic Ocean.
