Join DKB in Brazil!

How much WIND can you handle?

Detroit Kiteboarding is again teaming up with Alize Travel of Brazil to bring you an opportunity for the kite experience of your dreams. We'll spend eight days on the water in November in the state of Ceara on the northern coast of Brazil where the wind blows 18-25kts daily, the water is 84 degrees, and the kite beach is your front yard!

In these eight days expect a season or more's worth of progress as the kiteboarding conditions are IDEAL.


The destination is Ihlo do Guajiru, an ecological and Kiteboarding paradise. Gujiru features flat-water lagoon riding as well as ocean kitesurf downwinders. The windy season brings a steady and strong breeze and you can expect to spend lots of time on your 9 and 12 meter kites.

We'll depart Friday Nov. 6th and return Sunday Nov. 15th.

For only $799 we'll provide:

all transportation - daily kite clinics - Portuguese / English speaking guide

beachfront lodging - several downwinders - local knowledge

breakfast daily - technical support - boat excursion to the secret spot

Beginner Instruction also available - contact us for details

In. How are the waves?

the swell does'nt get too big, maybe shoulder high with some clean sections.

Arnot had a good time last year spending lots of time on his strapless surfie.

That sounds really good. All transportation means ground transportation, right? Or does it include the flight? If not, what airport do we fly to?

Other thing. For lunch & dinner, what do we need to budget roughly?

Thanks, Julien

Kyle,

I need the name of the place, the address, and phone number of where we will be staying in Brazil for my visa. Can you provide that?

Posted by: KyleK Aug 19 2009, 10:27 AM


A few have yet to commit but its looking like we might have a crew of a dozen kiterboarders headed to kite nirvana. We might be soon closing the trip so if you've thinking about it now is the time to lock and load.


MDH, I think you got that address all straight? I'll see you for feats of strength!
