MY FIRST 20 DAYS IN BRASIL

SO HERE WE ARE ONE YEAR LATER AND AFTER 20 DAYS I CAN SAY I'M HAVING A GREAT TIME KITING AND ENJOYING THE BEAUTY OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY, WHICH IS BRASIL.
AT THE MOMENT I'M IN JERICOACOARA AFTER HAVING BEEN IN CUMBUCO FOR 13 DAYS AT THE GUEST HOUSE WITH MARIO, A REALLY COOL GUY THAT OWN THIS NICE AND COMFORTABLE POSADA.

IN CUMBUCO I HAVE BEEN HANGING OUT WITH GABRIEL ONE OF XTC INSTRUCTORAND CARLA IN DURO BEACH WHERE I MET MANY FRIENDS, I WILL NOT SAY ANY NAMES TO AVOID TO FORGET SOME ONE, BUT I REALLY HAD A GREAT TIME KITING WITH THEM EVERY DAY AND RIDING FROM THE TOWN TO THE LAGOON DO CAUIPE, AND THEN COMING BACK ON THE BUGGY . AS WELL THERE WAS THE KPWT IN CUMBUCO SO I MEET THE DOMINICAN REPUBBLIC TEAM WITH ALEX SOTO, ARIEL, LUIS AND ALVARO FROM BEST KITEBOARDING AND WE HAD GREAT TIME, THE WIND WAS GOOD 16 TO 18 KNOTS WITH 3 DAYS OF 20 TO 22 KNOTS .....SWEET..
THAN ALESSANDRO, FRANCESCO AND DAVID ARRIVED AND WE DECIDED TO GO TO DISCOVER JERICOACOARA, AROUND 300KM NORTH OF FORTALEZA, IN FORTALEZA THERE IS THE INTERNATIONAL AIR PORT.WE KNEW JERI WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A BEAUTIFUL PLACE WITH A LOT OF WIND .........SO WE RENTED A 4X4, LITTLE BIT EXPENSIVE, BUT IT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE..TRUST ME..


WE GOT THE PERFECT DAY TO DRIVE; NO WIND AND A BIG HANG OVER. SO WE HEADED TO JERI.

IMMEDIATELY WITH THE FIRST IMPACT WITH THE SAND WE GOT STUCK ....NO WAY...WELL IT TOOK 10 MIN TO GET OUT OF IT AND WAS A GOOD TRAINING BY THE END ....A GOOD WAY TO REVIEW THE EMERGENCY PROCEDURES BEFORE YOU GET ON THE REAL BEACH.

THE REST OF THE TRIP WAS PERFECT WE STOPPED IN PARACURU FOR A LITTLE SNACK AND A COPPLE OF COLD BEERS ....REALLY COLD HERE..... WIND WAS STILL LIGHT SO WE KEPT GOING AND WE ARRIVED IN JERI RIGHT BEFORE THE FAMOUS SUNSET ON THE BIG DUNE.
IT WAS INCREDIBLE AND YOU HAVE TO BE THERE TO FEEL THE SENSATION, YOU ARE STANDING 70 MT ABOVE THE OCEAN WITH THE SUN RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU AND THE WIND BLOWING AT 30 KNOTS SPRAYING THE SAND AWAY.
THE TOWN OF JERI IS BEAUTIFUL AND SMALL WITH NO CARS AROUND ONLY BUGGY AND SOME JEEPS, SAND EVERY WHERE NICE, SMALL AND RUSTIC BUT REALLY CLEAN POSADAS AND RESTAURANTS ALL AROUND.
THE NEXT DAY AFTER A NICE BREAKFAST WE WENT TO PREA JUST 20 MIN SOUTH ,WHERE THE WIND CONDITIONS ARE PERFECT AND WITH NICE WAVES, SO WE STOPPED AT NATIVO KITE SCHOOL, A SMALL PLACE WITH A RESTAURANT, NO PEOPLE AND A PERFECT 25 KNOTS OF WIND !!!! IN FEW MIN ALE AND FRA WERE IN THE WATER AND I GOT SOME TIME TO TAKE SOME NICE SHOTS OF THEME, THAN I JUMPED IN THE WATER TOO.
AT THE END OF THE DAY WE LAUNCHED OURSELVES AND HEADED ON A DOWNWINDER FROM PREA TO JERI DURING SUNSET.......I THINK THE BEST I'VE EVER DONE, ALL THE COASTLINE WAS FULL OF WAVES WITH THE DUNES AS A BACKGROUND. BEAUTIFUL. THEN WE ARRIVED TO PEDRA FURADA, AND RIDING AROUND THE HILL THAT PROTECTS JERI FROM THE STRONG WINDS TO FINALLY REACH THE INCREDIBLE VIEW OF THE DUNES IT IS REALLY HARD TO DESCRIBE THE EMOTION YOU FEEL WHEN YOU RIDE THERE.
THEN AFTER A LITTLE BIT OF RELAXING IN THE NICE HOTEL, THE AQUA CHILI , WE WERE READY TO GO OUT FOR DINNER AND DRINK SOME BEERS AND CAPIRINA, TO BE READY TO GO KITING THE NEXT DAY.
ALL OF THE REST OF THE DAYS WERE GREAT WITH 30 KNOTS OF WIND AND A LOT OF FUN DRIVING AROUND AND DISCOVERING MANY COOL SPOT LIKE LAGOA AZUL JUST 10 MIN FAR FROM PREA, LAGUINHO DO TORTA REALLY NICE SPOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DUNE BEHIND THE LITTLE FISHING TOWN OF TATAJUBA
ALESSANDRO IMPROVED ALL OF HIS KITING SKILLS A LOT BY THE END OF THE WEEK JUMPING 7 MT OR MORE AND DOWN LOOPING THE KITE WITH 30 KNOT TO CHANGE DIRECTION, FRANCESCO HAS BEEN GREAT, PERFORMING HIS FIRST JUMP AND ENDING RIDING TOE-SIDE !!!
NOW EVERY ONE LEFT AND I HAVE DECIDED TO STAY ANOTHER 2 WEEKS IN JERI...IT IS TOO NICE TO GO AWAY FROM HERE
AT THE END OF OCTOBER I WILL GO DOWN TO PARACURU TO MEET WITH A CLIENT THAT HAS BOOKED A 3-DAY DOWNWINDER WITH ME THANKS TO KAREN FROM OZONE TRAVEL AND THEN I WILL DO A FULL KITEBOARDING LESSON IN CUMBUCO
SO I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE STORY AND YOU WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE
