Multi-day downwind kitesurfing in Brazil

Downwinders allow you to kite in the direction of the wind while enjoying the variety Brazil offers. Explore colossal dunes, lush lagoons and the warm Caribbean waters of Brazil’s northern coastline. This is not the kind of adventure you could – or should – do on your own, so getting local expertise is key.

We recommend you join one of 12 to 22 day long the kitesafaris run by Freeride Kitesurf in Brazil. There’s always an experienced and expert guide in the water with you and with groups no bigger than 12, trips flow easily.

A trip with Freeride Kitesurf also includes full support by 4×4 vehicles in case anything goes wrong. This means you can stop and change equipment if conditions change. Also you don’t need to worry about transporting your gear, plus snacks and drinks are provided.
