Brazil (the Honeymoon)

We have just returned from our Honeymoon to Brazil, we chose Brazil after checking all the things we required in a trip, mainly Hot, Sunny and windy! ;-)
Although it was a honeymoon, obviously we both share a passion for kiting, not laying by a pool so it was important that we ticked the correct boxes.

We had an amazing trip, partly due to the great people we met along the way. Trips to far flung kite destinations like this attract a certain type of traveller, easy going, adventurous, fun, happy smiley types from all over the world and Brazil was no different.

Each pousada (guest house) we stayed in we met more like minded kiters, all searching for the same adventure. We hired a simple car for the two weeks (thanks Rog at ) which aloud us to travel as we wished, so first stop was Ihla do Guarjuru where we met up with our freinds from the RAF on there annual "training" trip....great bunch of people who like to play hard!

After a few days in IdG we headed further north to Prea and Jericocoarar where we stumbled upon a local who would become our guide for the next few days, this guy (Pimbo) was amazing driving the car where beach buggy's would fail! Quite simply he drove our 1 litre hatch back not only along the beaches but also over impossibly steep sand dunes.

The surf in N.E Brazil is rarely big however it is usually a decent 3-6ft and cross shore winds so pretty much perfect for ripping in.

After a few days up north we headed back to Cumbucu to meet up with our good freinds Neil,James and Rog who we kited with each day doing some epic downwinders to Paracaru and Taiba etc We also spent way too much time drinking British tea at Neils appartment ;-)

So we are now back in the UK and summer seems long gone replaced with cold grey sky's, still at least we should get some decent winter winds and swells very soon, next week is the British Wavemasters in Devon and then at the end of the week i'm off to Hatteras, North Carolina USA to the Epic Dealers week to meet up with Dimitri & Helen plus all the other lucky Epic dealers from aound the world.
