Kitesurfing in Northern Brazil

10th July 2012 Print

The kite surfing season in Brazil starts now so it's a perfect time to head to the north and enjoy the stunning beaches and amazing winds.

If you didn't know already, Brazil is one of the best places in the world for kite surfing and the best beaches with the best and most consistent winds are all in the north.

Now is the best time to go with the season running from July to January when the strongest winds prevail. During these months the winds average between twenty to thirty knots every day and in the final few months of the year the winds get stronger, occasionally even reaching thirty-five knots.

Bespoke Brazil, a specialist tour operator, creates tailor-made holidays to Brazil, allowing you to experience the best of Brazil's northern coast, including the top kitesurfing destinations.

Simon Williams, founder of Bespoke Brazil, says, "The last 6 months of the year in Brazil make for one of the longest windy seasons in the world and why northern Brazil has become such a Mecca for kite surfers.  A number of pro-kiters will head to northern Brazil every year to hone their technique as they know they can be guaranteed consistently excellent winds and weather."

"These northern beaches, particularly between Jericoacoara and Fortaleza offer an amazing mix of strong winds and trendy beach towns, perfect for a kite surfing holiday. Towns and villages such as Cumbuco, Prea, Taiba, Icarazinho, Paracuru and Flexeiras all have a chilled out atmosphere offering simple to excellent accommodation options to relax in when the kite surfing is finished for the day. This makes it perfect for beginners through to experienced kiters"

"Aside from the winds a big part of the appeal is the laid back Brazilian lifestyle. As the sun starts to set you can smell fresh fish being cooked nearby, locals are practicing capoeria and the caipirinhas start to flow. If you head to the north of Brazil to kite surf then a great base is offered in Jericoacoara, an amazing town which you will be reluctant to leave and one of my favourite destinations in the whole of Brazil."

Bespoke Brazil offers a 10-day kitesurfing holiday to northern Brazil featuring 4 star accommodation in Jericoacaora and Prea, international flights to Fortaleza and private transfers from £2140 per person.
