Kite Jericoacoara spots and Downwind trips

Wind in Jeri itself,  in strong and gusty, and blows mainly side-offshore. Locals kite surf in Jericoacoara village, but for better wind conditions, launch your kite in Jericoacoara, and head straight downwind towards Rio Guriú. The main kite surfing sceen of Jericoacoara is in Prea that has wide sandy beach and side-onshore wind.   Great kiteboarding experience, is to take 4x4 trips to the beautiful lagoons, rivers, and ocean kite spots around.

Rio Guriúi delta

Nice spot 10km downwind from Jericoacoara. Wind direction is side shore to side onshore. Flat water in the river mouth at low to high tide, and wind waves in the ocean.

Downwind Kite trip to Rio Guriú

The first part is better run straight through, its mainly challenging, and not much fun. The wind is strong and very gusty. The wind gets more constant and turn more onshore, in the second half of the downwind, around the end of the bay. If you don't have a ride, mind that all 4x4 vehicles, cross Rio Guriú at the raft point. So you can catch there a ride back to Jericoacoara.  

Tatajuba Kite lagoon

Flat water inside the lagoon, and small wind waves on the beach. Wind is strong and might be gusty, depending on direction and location in the lagoon. The spot is reachable with 4x4 by the beach or by a tricky way via dirt roads. The spot is disconnected during high tide. Drive is totally tide dependent, and guide or a driver, is recommend.
