Downwinders & kite trips

It all started in 2005 when Bjorn Viane first came to Brazil to take part at a stop of the Pro tour kitesurfing (PKRA) in Fortaleza when then afther the competition he stayed in Cumbuco for another 6 months for training.

There he suddenly got the taste of downwind and after 10 years of exploring the region the demand suddenly came to guide other kitesurfers along the North East coast of Brazil and that's how kite guide brazil was born.

We now specialize in customized Downwinders and kite vacations for groups of friends or families at every level. We offer long downwinders from Cumbuco to Jericoacoara (+200 km) and even to the Lencois Maranheses (+400 km). But also the beginners and "holiday" kiters can go to KGB for smaller downwinders, kitle lessons, coaching and (hydro) foiling. And all this with a Flemish Guide / instructor with 15 years of kite experience in Brazil.

What can you expect?

At KGB kitesurfing stands central. Whether you are a beginner or half professional. Bjorn Viane and his Team we will give your kite level a boost.

For the advanced kiters we offer you the best downwind experiences between Cumbuco and Atins. But also the beginners can choose between a few lagoons and flat water spots.

All our downwinders and kite trips are customized for the group, which is why we do not organize Open downwinders or kite safaris where everyone can participate. We only organize downwinders for groups of friends, families or individual kiters.

From July to December you can be sure that you can kitesurf every day. The wind always blows from the same direction ... between 4 and 8 bft  right site sore. The waves can vary between 1 and 3 meters. We have some rocks and mangroves allong the downwind, but 95% of the beaches are pure sand. During the day the temperature is usually between 30 °C and 32 °C. At night the temperature is around 25 ° C. The water temperature is around 28 ° C. So you don't need a wet suite. However, sun protection is necessary. Baseball cap, high PF sunscreen and lycra are all recommended.

In addition to the perfect kite surfing conditions and the tropical vibe, we also arrange the best hotels and restaurants, drivers, 4x4s, boats, kite guides and instructors ... So that you only have to think about kitesurfing itself.

The Downwinders

Pay attention:
All Downwinders are customized for the Group. That means that we do not organize open downwinders that everyone can participate. The advantage of this is that the group can decide for themselves who can join the team, also choos the start and end date of the trip and also the number of kilometers you want to kite per day and then the accommodation can also be adapted to the needs of the group ... (so we have more freedom than other downwind organizations).
