In 2021, the start of the seventh Iron Macho will be in João Pessoa, the capital of the state of Paraíba. On the very first day, a sporty 37-miles are covered before we set up our overnight accommodation in the quaint fishing village of Barra de Camaratuba. The village is beautifully situated at the mouth of the Rio Camaratuba. Visually, the destination of our day’s stage could hardly be more different than the starting point near the big city.
Even if the beach of Barra de Camaratuba invites you to linger, we have to move on. Today, a downwinder to Pipa (34-miles away) is on the program. After less than 10-miles we will reach the beach of Praia do Guaju. Here we say goodbye to Paraíba and welcome the state of Rio Grande do Norte. Our way leads us past Baía Formosa (Beautiful Bay), a name which is totally fitting. This municipality is the stomping grounds of Italo Ferreira – the 2019 surfing world champion. From here it’s less than 13-miles to Pipa.
After a night in the lively party town of Pipa, we aim for Natal, the capital of the state of Rio Grande do Norte, for today. There are a good 34-miles in between on the water. So we leave the romantic Praia do Amor behind and head north to Tibau do Sul. You’ll be amazed at the gigantic size of the estuary there while we kite the 550 yards to the opposite beach. From then on, the beach is sandy and flat again. The cliffs are to our backs. We continue towards Tabatinga, a top wave spot in this region. It’s still a long ride to Natal, but if we’re lucky we might see a dolphin or two. A good 2/3 of today’s route is behind us – so let’s get down to the final sprint.
