• BRAZIL DESERT EXPEDITIONS
    SEPTEMBER 13 - 17, 2018

    A Week Long Adventure Kiteboarding in the North of Brazil

  • KITE THE DESERT

    For 6 weeks during the year, the pools in this huge sand desert fill with water, making it perfect for kiting. There are endless flat water lagoons and perfectly constant trade winds.

  • THE DOWNWINDERS

    The first 3 days you will be doing a massive downwinder along the northern coast of Brazil, hitting incredible beaches and literally kiting as many hours a day as you can handle. Our support vehicles will follow along the way and we're going to be adventuring, staying in a different town each night until we get to the big desert where we will spend the last 3 days of the trip kiting through the dunes and laying down tracks across the desert with our GPS devices.

    We will stay in Pousadas (local hotels) and little private houses in the village at the edge of the desert. Accommodation is by no means luxurious but the basics are covered such as A/C, hot water, and mosquito nets!

    Food & Drink

    Desert Cuisine

    To make sure we are completely stoked, we are bringing a chef to help our western pallets safely navigate the local cuisine. All meals will be designed to give you good clean energy to keep your body in top shape for those long rides. Local superfoods such as Guarana, Acai, and Tapioca will be on the daily menu.

     

    We will also have fresh Caipirinhas and cold Beers available to unwind ;)
