Downwinder Brazilië

We, experienced and professional kitersurfers, have been looking for years for the best and most beautiful places in the world that contain all of the perfect ingredients: strong and reliable wind, remote beaches, rolling waves and unlimited space on the water. Have you ever dreamed of such a place? Then you have found a trip that can make your dreams come true! The mega downwinder in Brazil is a “must-do” if you are a kitesurfer.

When you come with us on the Mega Downwinder through Brazil, you are going to leave the busy beach life and mass tourism behind. You will discover new kitesurf spots and you will be coached by our professional kitesurfers who have come to these places for years. And because our life is one big journey, why wouldn’t we travel in style?

There is no better way than traveling with the kite! When we start the downwinder, 4×4 jeeps will drive with you while you surf down the wind. During this KiteSafari, we will show you all the hidden lagoons and untouched places. The end destination is a surfer’s paradise and the wild wild west of Brazil: Jericoacoara! This beach is one of the top 10 beaches in the world. On this trip, everything is organized for you and professional guides and instructors from KiteActive will follow you to show you the way!

Are you ready for the trip of your dreams? In Brazil, the wind always blows and the waves roll. Book now for your dream trip.

The ride of your life!

What to expect?

You can find the itinerary and the route of the downwinder below. It describes day-by-day how your trip will look like. You can already learn the route, so you can even tell us what to do.

If you want, we can pick you up at the airport in Fortaleza. However, note this before arrival and contact us about your travel data. The downwinders always start in Cumbuco or Jericoacoara on Sunday at 10 o’clock.

Before the downwinder, it is recommended to stay a couple of extra nights at our Pousada in Cumbuco. So you can already warm up your kite muscles, get used to the sun and start enjoying your holiday! The downwinder finishes Saturday evening in Cumbuco.

BE AWARE: This package includes 7 nights, if you want to book an extra night in our Pousada in Cumbuco then it will cost € 35  a night per person. Includes: Breakfast, 4×4 transport and fun!

How can I book a trip?

Booking a trip with us is very easy. Just send us a message, phone call, whats app or send a carrier pigeon that you want to join and we will take care of the rest. As soon as you book, we reserve a place for you during the trip up to 10 days. If the deposit is then transferred (25% of the total amount) then you are sure to be there! You can cancel the trip for free up to 2 days after your booking, after which you will be charged.

How is the group composition?

Our groups can range from young to old, and are often evenly distributed with both men and women. Usually the group consists of ages between 20 and 45 with exceptions of course. We teach beginners and give tips to advanced kite surfers so you can expect every level with us. We also often offer group activities that you can participate in without obligation. On some trips you may share a large room with other KiteActive guests, but this is indicated. Often you can already see in advance via our Facebook Events which people will be present during the trip.

Which vaccinations do I need?

No vaccinations are required for Brazil. Regardless of length of stay, the following vaccinations are recommended for Brazil: vaccination against DTP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio), vaccination against hepatitis A (infectious jaundice). Vaccination against yellow fever is also recommended for Brazil, except in a large area bordering the East coast, see yellow fever map South America.

tip: Make an early appointment with the local GGD or GP (some vaccinations take a week to work). More information can be found at

What is the level on this trip?

Important question! This trip is certainly not suitable for beginners. We always advise to book a few days in our KiteActive pousada in Cumbuco so that you can do some small downwinders with us so that we can see how the level is. It is important that you can get a good water start, save yourself on the water, stay upwind and have fun while kitesurfing 🙂 For beginners we recommend our kite camp in Cumbuco.

Help! I can not during this period?

Bummer… But don’t worry. Find at least 3 other friends and we can make a custom-made downwinder for you! From 4 people we offer custom made downwinders in the period that suits you and the way you want it. Send us a message for more info at:

What is the downwinder's arrival and departure day?

We always leave on Sunday at 10.00 from Cumbuco (in weeks 1 and 2) or Jericoacoara (in week 3). Do you need transportation to Jericoacoara? That is not included, but we can arrange it for you. Please let us know! We expect you will be back in the KiteActive pousada in Cumbuco on Saturday evening around 22:00.

Do you also arrange the flight?

Normally not, we mainly advise you which flight you can best book! KLM is currently flying directly to Fortaleza (Brazil) for good prices. We also recommend checking Skyscanner for your best flight. Would you prefer KiteActive to arrange everything? No problem. Put your data, budget, and possibly preferences (travel time / legroom / transfer) on the mail and we will book the best flight for you for only € 35 booking fee.

Who guides this downwinder?

Our KiteActive toppers Roderick Pijls & Felix Maks. You are in good hands with these gentlemen. Both boys have been training in Brazil since 2009 and know the Brazilian coast better than the average Brazilian 😉
