Water sports beach & spot
The wide, fine sandy beaches in the north-east of Brazil stretch to the horizon and are considered the most beautiful beaches in the whole country. Our kite centre is located just in front of our main lagoon and about 200m from the ocean and offers you a dream spot covering several square kilometres with plenty of space to take advantage of the oblique onshore wind. The wind, the current and the river shape the lagoon a little differently every year.
Tides at the spot
The spot is quite changeable thanks to the tides - new, different conditions arise twice a day:
At high tide, a wide lagoon with shallow water forms. The shallow water in the shore area is ideal for the water start and setup. Our shallow and flat lagoon make kitesurfing comfortable and offer great conditions for freestylers. Advanced kitesurfers can enjoy 500 metres of windward, mirror-smooth water at the mouth of the Rio Pirangi or ride the ocean waves directly over the sandbank.
At high tide, the lagoon is a very nice spot for wingfoilers: Due to the depth of the water, you should choose a rather short AMst and will then find beautiful shallow water conditions here.
At low tide, the lagoon may occasionally have very little water. In this case, KBC Parajuru organises a transfer to our windward spot.
On the sea, directly behind the lagoon, advanced kitesurfers and wingfoilers will always find good conditions.
Buggy transfer to the river mouth
We offer a buggy shuttle service to the river mouth, our alternative spot, about 5 km from the center. We charge a small fee for each journey. Alternatively, the way back can also be covered as a downwinder.
The north-east coast of Brazil, with its endless, gorgeous beaches, features superb conditions for downwind trips. For advanced riders, our local team offers downwind boards of varying lengths for different locations. Our truck will accompany you along the beach for the duration of the trip: if you run out of energy, we’ll be on hand to collect you.Downwind trips can be booked on-site.
Explore the area by buggy on an exciting tour, e.g.
- to Pontal do Maceio at the Fortim: swimming in the Rio Jaguaribe River, swimming in the natural caves in the Pontal and speeding over the sand dunes
- to Uruau Beberibe: An action-packed ride over the sand dunes accompanied by a local from Uruau.
- to Canoa Quebrada: We drive to the famous beach Canoa Quebrada, cross the river by ferry, continue on the sand dunes to the beach, then a tour of Canoa, swim, eat delicious fish, crayfish or shrimp after
- to Morro Branco: an action ride over the sand dunes, walk through the Falesias, shopping on the beach, food and drink. With its impressive sandstone labyrinth, the beach is one of Ceará's most remarkable beaches. Continue with a visit to the arts and crafts market. The day will end on the beautiful sandy beach or in the nearby spa "Oca dor Índios".

Between June and January, reliable wind conditions are above 70%. During these eight months, the trade winds create ideal kiting conditions with wind speeds between 15 and 25 knots, and it almost never rains. You can expect the best conditions between August and November. The wind comes from the east/south-east and blows cross-onshore. Kite sizes between 7 sqm and 12 sqm will work well. The standard kite size is 9; use 12 for the early and late season. Air temperatures are around 30°C. The sea is warm – board shorts and Lycra are all you’ll need for kitesurfing here. However, don’t forget to use high-quality, waterproof sun protection as well.
At low tide, the beach is very wide and the lagoon is shallow. The water is extremely smooth. This is optimal for practising in our shallow area and with a constant cross-onshore wind. When you start, you can adjust your kite and board from a standing position. With so much room in the water and on the beach, practising as well as launching and landing your kite are simple and safe. These are also ideal conditions for freestylers.
Wave enthusiasts will find everything they’re looking for at high tide, and novices can make their first attempts too.
