Great three weeks kitesurfing in Prea, Brazil. Consistent wind, maybe a little lighter than usual, still mostly on 7 meter kites, a few times 9 meter, even a few days with light wind.

Staying at Vila Prea was again the perfect choice. Super nice bungalows and great food, the beach just a few meters from the pousada.

Vila Prea – a great place to stay!

Vila Prea is the prefect place to stay in Prea. Right on the beach, beautiful bungalows and an amazing restaurant. The ecologically run property with seven bungalows under the palm trees with private patios provide an idyllic atmosphere. The rich breakfast buffet and excellent restaurant provide all you need, right at the beach.

Downwind sessions…

One of the best things here in Prea are the downwind sessions along the cost. In general, if you are into waves, downwinders are best in the evenings, an hour before the tide is peaking.

The downwinder from Prea to Jeri is about 10k long, the one from Jeri to Guriu about 15km – see Google maps. Riding into the sunset is unbelievable and if you like, you can combine it with a trip to Jeri and enjoy a Caipirinha while watching the sun going down in the Ocean.

Jericoacoara

Jericoacoara – or just Jeri – the epicenter within a few hundred miles if it comes to nightlife, shopping and eating…. grab a Caipirinha from the beach bars and watch the sun going down in the sea. From the restaurants we have tried, we can really recommend Kaze Sushi Bar and Tamarindo. For drinks, the SambaRock Cafe right in the centre is certainly a good start. There are dozens of shops, along the main street as well as on the small side lanes, mostly selling local arts and beach stuff – all ridiculously overpriced.

Pousada Vila Bela Vista Preà

We stayed the whole time at the pousada Vila Bela Vista Preà, run by an American-Brazilian couple. The place is awesome! Big swimming pool, very good restaurant, where breakfast, lunch and dinner is served. The wooden bungalows are beautiful with indoor as well as outdoor shower. Plenty of space for the kitesurf gear. The puosada is right on the beach and there is a small kite station, that belongs to the hotel.

The spot

The kite spot is right in from of the pousade, you just need to walk 100m across the sandy beach. There is a small kite station with fresh water shower. The water is choppy and during high tide, there are nice small wind waves which makes it a lot of fun with the surf board. Just a few other kiters usually on the water.

Downwind sessions

One of the great things is doing downwinders, either from Preà to Jericoacoara and from Jericoacoara to Guriu. For both, you will need a driver with a buggy.

Windsurfing in Flecheiras.
We have extended the (anyway lousy) Swiss summer in Flecheiras (Brasil) with beach, sun and windsurfing. Flecheiras is a remote and quiet spot near Fortalezza with only a handful of people on the water. Hotel, surf station and spot are well managed, equipted with North/Fanatic gear.

The wind was mostly blowing 5.0 and we only skipped one day doing an ATV tour. We have also finally picked up kite-surfing, but need to invest more time on it.
