About the route

This route selects the amazing wave locations from our famous Delta Route, and focuses on learning and improving, especially on the waves, but also on advanced downwind techniques from 3x world champion kitewave magician Guilly Brandão.

A route for those who prefer shorter stretches, with more focus on wave riding and performance. With a slower rhythm, without the need to complete a challenging distance.

Similar to our Delta Experience route, but with the added benefits of Coaching, video and photo analysis, and a guarantee that you will leave a more skilled and confident kitesurfer!

You will get to know two of the treasures of Brazil during this route; The Delta of Parnaiba, the largest delta system in the Americas filled with amazing wildlife and scenery and optionally the National Park of Lençois Maranhenses, with its amazing white dunes and freshwater lagoons.

Every day of the trip will begin with breakfast at 7.30 or 8am, please have your belongings already organized and bags packed and ready when we meet for breakfast. Shortly after there will be a daily briefing that will explain the days route, conditions, hazards and highlights of the downwind by the captain, and any important logistical information for the day. It is also a good chance to ask any questions you may have.

We will have a daily, detailed video review with Guilly, to analyse the images from the day before and get tips from the coach

After the briefing we will leave our luggage at the reception for our drivers (please, ask at front desk for help if needed) to be packed into the vehicles, please ensure this is done promptly as it allows us to be ready to go as soon as the wind conditions are right. At 10am we will be on the beach ready to go. 

It is important that all belongings are clearly tagged with your name, to ensure we can organize your bags to the rooms where possible. It is important that nothing is left in the rooms and that all belongings are together in the reception at this time.

You can separate your small bags (with computers, cameras, passports, money, cards) to go inside the car. Our kite gear and other equipment will have to go outside of the car or in trailers.

 

Please ensure you organize your arrival and departure transport with our staff well before the start of the trip. We offer reliable and comfortable 4×4 transfers from Fortaleza or Parnaiba airport and from Atins to Sao Luis Airport (speak with our staff for prices and duration information)

We go for fresh catches of seafood local snacks, before we take a boat into the river system of the delta, to experience the roosting of the Guara, a natural phenomenon famous in the area, After that an 1 hr boat ride trough Igarapés, narrow river arms that go bending along the amazing forest all the way back to the Island of Poldros (Night at Poldros).
