After two years of pandemic, it’s time to return to Brazil this summer 2022 in style. With one of the most ambitious trips we have ever organized. It’s time to make a gay kitesafari on the best coast of the world for kitesurfing. A trip that covers three Brazilian states, Ceará, Plauí and Maranhao during 14 days.
We will kitesurf from Taíba to Atins, sleep in different spots Taiba, Icaraizinho, Jericoacoara, Barra Grande, Atins and Maceió for several days to explore the area.
It will not be a relaxing trip precisely because the idea is to travel through the water when we change from one spot to another. But we will be able to relax at least 2 or 3 nights in each spot, and the guides will take us to discover the area before continuing to the next spot.
What are the dates of the trip?
The trip starts on August 6th at 9:00 am and ends on the evening of August 20th (time to be determined) at Fortaleza Airport, where we will be picked up by the guide company. Be sure to take a flight to arrive before the 6th and leave after the 20th.
