Goal of downwind trips with Kitexperiment

We have adapted the downwind week, so that all autonomous kitesurfers can enjoy their stay to the fullest.
The itinerary from Jericoacoara to Atins is a discovery of the beaches, with downwinds but also the discovery of the fauna and flora in the Parnaiba Delta.

You will explore 275 km by kite, boat and 4×4 in 7 days of kite safari.
The goal of each day is to take the time to discover the spots, and be able to enjoy during our kite ride.
The guides and drivers of the 4×4 assistance vehicles have a great knowledge of the Brazilian coast (more than 10 years of experience) and will be there to assist you during your navigation (loss of board, re-launching the kite…) or to change your equipment.

Guides are also coaches. They will give you the best advices to improve your downwind technique, and know how to act in certain circumstances that we may encounter during downwind runs.
The 4×4’s will follow on the beach for your safety.
