The longest kitesurf downwinder in the world

The longest kitesurf downwinder in the world

The Iron Macho kite trip will take place for the seventh time in a row in 2021 and with a total length of 930 miles it is longer than ever. This makes this kite event by far the longest kitesurf downwinder in the world. The 24-day kitesurf tour starts on September 7, 2021 in João Pessoa, the capital of the state of Paraíba. This year’s destination is once again São Luís in the state of Maranhão.

The entire distance is covered with the kite on the water. The reliable trade winds in northeastern Brazil, which at this time usually reach 5 to 6 Bft, ensure perfect kite conditions every day. But the wind direction is also optimal and mostly runs slightly side-onshore from the right. Dangerous situations, which can arise elsewhere with offshore winds, do not exist in northeastern Brazil in and of themselves.

The kite trip passes more than 250 beaches and goes through the five states:
Paraíba, Rio Grande do Norte, Ceará, Piauí and Maranhão.
You will get to know all the kitespots on this route and kite in between far away from crowded hotspots in complete freedom.
