Brazil: HOT Kitesurf Destination


Brazil, hottest kitesurfing destination during this time of the year.

Known for its warm weather and warm people, endless beaches, caipirinhas, and strong winds, the Northwest coastline of Brazil has become the new mecca of kitesurfing.
This place is now on the radar of all the wind seekers! Kiters from all around the globe are headed over there to enjoy the constant kitesurfing days Brazil has to offer. From August to January, the Trade Winds hit the North coast of Brazil for good. It always blows from 20-30 knots, all day long, nonstop…is the best natural fan ever seen!

The Cabrinha Team is not left behind!

Kite Mansion Open – Wakeboard Park Competition:

So three years ago, Cabrinha team riders – wakeboards specialists – Annelous and Alex Maes went to Icapuí, Brazil. They instantly fell in love with the place and decided to build a mini wake park at the lagoon there. With the help of Kite Mansion Pousada, they put together rails and kickers that made it the perfect park for riding both left and right foot forward.

This year, their dream came true when they organized and competed in the first ever KPL event in this amazing spot that is now their second home. With 25 competitors, from 11 different countries, Annelous made it all the way to the top of the podium for the girls! What a rockstar she is!!

Aside from this two particular locations that the Cabrinha team enjoyed the past month, there are other endless destinations to kite in the north of this beautiful country. If you haven’t had the chance to visit this region it’s time you PLAN YOUR TRIP!

Plan your Brazil Kitesurfing trip!

We invite you to take a look at our Vela Resort partners, located in the village of Jericoacoara, and Icaraizinho.

Jericoacoara is 5km away from the Preá beach where the surf team had their time. If you like strong winds, and waves at the open ocean this is your spot!
If you enjoy flat water riding you must visit Icaraizinho. This spot is a couple hours south of Jeri, and it’s home to a beautiful lagoon where freestylers shred down the Brazilian way!
