I am looking at some of the forums and this will help you; If you are JUST looking for flights then go to my site www.maximrio.com and under the booking page you can scroll down and click on the picture of the plane that will open a page that you can get an instant quote on flights. The travel co I use out of Miami is solid and they have partnerships with TAM and GOL you can also call them all the info is on my site. You will love working with them in terms of your flights to and in Brazil. I highly recommend using them (E-Solututions) as they will not book any funky transfers of things that don't make sense. They also book all the flights for the Best Odyssey and trust me, that boat goes to some remote areas in this world and E-Solutions gets it done!
I have a bunch of you coming in the next months but I see that alot of you are going to the North. The North East of BR has very consistent wind but don't underestimate Rio BR and the surrounding (1.5 hours from Rio and guided) areas like Buzios, Araruama, Praia Seca, Cabo Frio and the long down winders in Barra. I have been to all the different locations in BR and we are getting some killer wind and kiting and ALOT right here in RIO. In case you get skunked on wind I have stand up paddle boards by Surf Tech, surf boards and lessons and many many other things that the North East does not offer at all. So take a look at http://www.maximrio.com and e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more info. You can also Skype my BR phone at (21) 9438 6373 or Skype to Skype at Martin.Stockl1 Cheers, Martin
