The Experience

The first day is a test day to check everyone's skill levels and ensure that the sailors are able to downwind. Thereafter every morning of the clinic will start with a briefing from the professional instructions you will provide you with a clear view of the route, the goals, beauties, and dangers. You will leave each hotel early in the morning heading north to secret, wild and desert locations. A car on the beach follows the group whenever possible but the captain leading the way should always be your target. Another guide will supervise the group from behind. Strategic meeting points are chosen to stop the car and wait for you to hydrate your body with healthy beverages and food, as well as to freshen your mind about the sailing ahead. 

The long coastline is mostly sandy with a side onshore wind every day during the season. There are some nice small waves and the water is warm - you can kite in shorts and a rash. All this makes it super safe and comfortable for long downwinders, the perfect spot for you kiteboarding vacations.

You will explore the coast of Ceará, which means turquoise waters, and sea numerous beautiful beaches along the way. The journey is concluded upon arrival at Ranch do Peixe, a truly beautiful beachside hotel that spread out over several acres with a kiteschool, bar and restaurant, and swimming pool. The amazing town of Jericoacoara is only 12km away and is definitely worth a night or two at the end of the trip.
