This quote of one of our participants, we probably should not take it too serious, but it shows in a perfect way the emotions and feelings this very special kitetrip can set free (and trust us, it always does!). We already mentioned before on our starting page, that this Downwind Trip has the potential to change a (kiters) life and thats indeed the case. We ourselves are kiting since 1999 around the world but discovering the northern part from Jericoacoara on, by Kite, we never before saw something so beautiful, pristine and breathtaking in kitesurfing ever before! Completely new spots, world class flatwater - and top wavespots with nobody else then our small group, because you can just get there by Kite. The combination of the before mentioned together with the challenge of kiting for 300 - 350K in changing conditions, on the ocean with waves, walking over dunes, getting into rivers , kiting down the river, having lunch on an island brought by our supply boat...all of that is making this "Charge your Mind" downwind trip a highlight in everyones (kite)life, without any doubt!
This trip is a CUTOMIZED downwind adventure, that means when you are a group of 3-6 friends we can arrange this special downwind adventure just as and when you wish! We will give you some ideas, we will present you all existing possibilities and you can choose and combine like you want. You decide how many days you want to be on "route" and in which Hotels / Pousadas you want to spend your nights. If you want to have a video / photographer with you or not, you decide we will assist you.
