    Guide:

    Jeff Doepker
    Jeff has been travelling to Brazil and specifically the NE Coast of Brazil for almost 20 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.

    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)!

    Gear:

    We are almost assured of having wind everyday 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 outside the reefs, 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 jeff@kitesource.ca know asap so we can arrange to have them well before departure.
