    Guide: Jeff Doepker
    Jeff has been travelling to Brazil and specifically the NE Coast of Brazil for over 10 years.. In fact, he designed the house we will be staying in! Jeff will lead the daily kite trips and suggest destinations to the group based on tides, anticipated winds and group desires. He’ll also be the guide for evening walks into town, the local market, restaurants and perhaps a late night adventure to the busy bar scene in Cumbuco one night.

    Ocean Rodeo Brazil 2019

    Who: Competent, independent kiters that can consistently stay up wind and are ready to challenge themselves in the waves is the minimum requirement for this trip. If you are looking to get started kiting… this is not the trip you are looking for (but plan to come with us next year)!

    Kitesource Brazil trip downwinders from Taiba

    Gear: We are almost assured every day having wind between 15 and 25 knots.
    Ideally, everyone has a 3 kite quiver (ie 7m,9m,12m), however taking the travel and weight considerations into account, you may want to drop down to a 2 kite quiver.. My recommendation would be for individuals under 180 lbs to bring 7m and 9m kites, those of us over 180 lbs, 9m and 12m. This is assuming twin tip & surfboard riding… if you’re a foiler, you’ll know your own game!
    Boards - twintip, surfboard, foil.. Whatever you’re into, but know a couple things:
    Equipment is expensive to buy there, if you can find it at all
    There are many reefs there, and they can be shallow… foilers will likely have to ride out fairly far, especially during low tides
    On the best downwinder, which we will do multiple times, the waves can range from mush on the inside to (rarely in my experience) double overhead on the outside. Typically (in my experience) they are chest to head high on the outside.
    If you’re new to waves, don’t be intimidated, the inside is almost always friendly flat and mushy... It’s an amazing place to get more comfortable kiting in waves
    If you require kites, boards, bars, travel bags, vests, helmets etc please let know asap so we can arrange to have them well before departure

    Kitesource Brazil Kiteboarding trip Amazing beaches
    NOT included:
    Flights - typically between $1000 and $1400+ for economy
    Out of country insurance
    Hall pass from your significant other
    Out of house food and drink - we will eat out at a restaurant at least once during the 2 weeks (chef needs a night off), optional nightly drinks in town
    Lunches - typically pick up some local pastries on the way to the beach for quick snacks during the day
    To be honest most people skip lunches and don’t even realize it
    Party night out to Cumbuco - optional

    Lessons: May be available on 1 or more of the trips at a cost of $125/hour and must be pre-arranged. Please inquire if you are interested in improving your twintip, surf or all around kiting capabilities.
