Tambaba → Pipa (IM)


5 - 7 Sept. | 3 days | 100 mi


Day 1: 5 Sept.

Tambaba → Joao Pessoa | 25 mi

In 2022, the start of the eight Iron Macho will be in Tambaba south of João Pessoa, the capital of the Paraíba. On the first day we take it rather easy with. Today’s distance will be only 25 miles.

Day 2: 6 Sept.

Joao Pessoa → Barra de Camaratuba | 40 mi

From João Pessoa, the capital of the state of Paraíba, the distance to the small but beautiful fishing village of Barra de Camaratuba is 40 miles. There we will set up our night’s lodging. 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.

Day 3: 7 Sept.

Barra de Camaratuba → Pipa | 37 mi

Even if the beach of Barra de Camaratuba invites you to linger, we have to move on. Today, a downwinder to Pipa (37-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.
