Welcome to Vila Guara!

We will enjoy an amazing dinner at 7pm. Please make sure all your bags (including kite bags) are tagged with your name when you check in.
Day 2 – Atins
We will meet for breakfast at 8am and have a briefing at 9am. This will be done every day and is very important to discuss the details of the routes, specific risks or cautious areas, and define stops and strategic meeting points.
We will do a small downwind to “Ponta do Atins” where we will take advantage of the geography in order to train the use of riding a twintip board without fins and how to ride with the board in the sand. We will have a traditional lunch served with shrimp, and then return for a magical evening at Vila Guará.
Day 3 – Atins to Sto Amaro

We must leave at 10:00 am sharp, where we will start with a downwind of about 25km across the sea to the mouth of the Rio Negro river. Our support car will pick us up and take us to the point of entry into the lagoons for the second part of the day! (40km) We will cross the dune complex kiting, in an "endurance" through the sand maze in search of the most incredible lagoons! It will be a different and unique experience, and at the end we will arrive in Santo Amaro and have an incredible sunset. In the evening we will enjoy the hospitality and cuisine at Pousada Rancho das Dunas.
Day 4 – Praia to Betania
