An amazing experience of seven days and 160 kilometres.

INTRODUCTION TO THE DOWNWIND EXPERIENCE

Based in Jericoacoara, you will do a short downwind on each of the four days, during which you’ll learn all about the downwind technique while exploring the wonders of Brazil’s northeast coast.

TAILOR MADE TRIPS

Freedom, adventure and fun in the best locations worldwide! Let your imagination go wild and build up the trip of your dreams with Freeride Kitesurf’s support and advice in Brazil, Spain or South Africa. Whether it’s a solo trip, an adventure with a group of friends or family, or a journey with your significant other (kiter or non kiter), Freeride Kitesurf’s team will help you make it a reality. From a one-stop trip to multiple spots or an expedition which mixes day trips, short downwinders and tuition to improve your level; anything’s possible.

Freeride Kitesurf offer two types of tailor made trip:

• Pure downwind trip (only in Brazil) – minimum of three people. Decide the area you want to explore and Freeride Kitesurf will plan the rest.

• Non-downwind trip (any destination) – open to any group size and can be as adventurous as you like and as long as you want.

SOUTH AFRICA

Freeride Kitesurf run trips for all levels of kiter that will take you beyond the regularly visited spots close to Cape Town.

Maybe you’ll head up the west coast to epic wave spots like Yzerfontein or Paternoster or the flat water havens of Langebaan and Saldanha. Freeride Kitesurf also head east to Witsand, Hermanus and Struissbaai, which is a totally different experience with even more epic, crowd-less spots.

SPAIN

This year Freeride Kitesurf are also expanding their network of trips and locations to run clinics in the kiting capital of Europe – Tarifa!
