Videootje nr 5 over de Topspots in Brazilie. Dit keer Ilha do Guajiru tot Prea.
At the fifth episode of my kite trip in Ceará, Brazil. Alex Neto and I will go from Ilha do Guajiru, all the way to Preá, stopping in Lagoa do Paraíso. A famous spot that usually people go to spend the day in cool bars, but this time for a nice kiteboard session. We will show you a beautiful downwind you can do in Ilha do Guajiru, a crazy session at Lagoa do Paraíso and some nice kiteloops at Preá.
ILHA DO GUAJIRU: Very famous place for kiteboarding, the time to kite there is during medium tide. Take care riding there on low tide since it gets really shallow. High tide it gets a bit choppy. Nice hotels with all kinds of prices and styles lined up right in front of the river. You can ask your hotel reception about the downwind around the mangroves. For example at Hotel Barraca do Kite, they take you in a small boat all the way upwind, so you can do this amazing downwind back to Ilha do Guajiru! Definitely worth it to do!
LAGOA DO PARAÍSO: This huge lagoon between Jericoacoara and Preá is very famous for their nice bars in front of the water. You can drive it around if you have a 4x4 car and just find a place to kite exactly how we did. Everywhere you go the wind will be gusty because of the trees that surrounds the lagoon, so not the best kiteboarding conditions, but nice for cool shots!
PREÁ: Preá is one of the most famous places in Brazil for kiteboarding. Because of the strong winds almost everyday and so many kiteschools, it makes it easy to just book your ticket and don't need to be worried about the wind forecast during the high season. At the high season you can easily get the most of the days with 35 knots.
HIGH SEASON: JULY-NOVEMBER
