After breakfast at the Pousada Tropical Wind and the subsequent route briefing, we will set off north of the accommodation on the beach. From Cumbuco, one of the oldest and most famous kite spots in Brazil, our 50-mile route takes us to Lagoinha. We pass the famous Cauipe Lagoon – and a few-miles later we have to land our kites. Going beneath the piers is faster than going around the outside in the sea. We continue our trip on the beach of Pecem. It’s about 6.5-miles to Taiba. At the end of this kite spot we pass the Lagoa Taiba before we come across one of the best wave spots in this area called Quebra Mar in Paracuru. From here, it is another 15.5-miles to our destination – the beach of Lagoinha. We will spend the night at the Hotel Platô.
First we hit Donkey Kite Lagoon on the beach, with our destination today being Icarai de Amontada. 50-miles of bathtub-warm salt water separate us at the start. The closest kite spot is Guajiru, less than 12.5-miles away. We pass along Flecheiras and Emboaca before we reach the picturesque bay of Mundaú. We’ll cover more than half today’s distance before we stop for a break at Baleia. The beach in this area is spacious and the sea is tame, so we can get ahead quickly. We will shortly arrive in beautiful bay of Icaraí de Amontada. At its western end is the Pousada Villa Mango, our accommodation for tonight.
After breakfast at Villa Mango a real challenge awaits us; today’s distance is 75-miles! We’re heading to the most famous party place in Ceará – Jericoacoara. This is going to be tough, but every participant can, whenever he wants, continue on land with the support vehicles. 75 miles of kitesurfing in one day is absolutely not everyone’s cup of tea. In no time we are out of the bay and pass the neighboring village of Moitas. Before we get to Patos, an excellent shallow water spot in this region, we quickly cross the Rio Aracatiacu. At the end of the extensive beach Praia dos Patos is the Rio Aracati-Mirim and behind lies Almofala. If we are lucky with the tides and it’s high tide, we can kite in the river at the end of Praia de Almofala up to Ilha do Guajiru.
Now follows a long section with alternating mangrove forests and estuaries on the coast. The next bigger kite spot is Preá, which lies 10 miles before our destination. We kite past the landmark of Jeri, the Pedra Furada, a stone archway on the beach. Now still around the bay and soon we go ashore exhausted but happy, while the sun is setting south of the Duna do Pôr do Sol. For today there are only 3 more things to do: taking a shower, eating and drinking, and above all sleeping. Our accommodation is Pousada Surfing Jeri and it will be nice to chill before our well-deserved rest day.
