The second season offering our pousada in Tatajuba has been a blast, resulting in limited availability. Hence, a number of people have been asking for a new KiteWorldWide destination in Brazil.

We consider this small fishing village of Icaraizinho, besides Tatajuba, to be a new kitesurfing dream spot in Brazil. It is located on an expansive, beautiful palm grove in an idyllic bay with an endless view of white sandy beaches. You can find this paradise approximately 170 km north-west of Fortaleza and 100 km southeast of Tatajuba.

The village itself was – until a road was built last year – almost completely cut off from the outside world. Here you can still enjoy the original Brazil in all its beauty of nature. It is a simple place with very warm, helpful people showing a contagious zest for life. Today you can find everything you need, such as well-paved streets, good restaurants, shops and traditional bars.

With Icaraizinho, we’ve found another spot which makes every kitersurfer’s heart beat faster, as it offers an incredible variety of kitesurfing opportunities. The beginners and intermediates will be stoked to discover the various empty freshwater lagoons and river mouths. Intermediate and advanced kitersurfers can tumble around on the open sea, or discover a new passion visiting some of the nice wave spots – perfect for first attempts in the waves.

The kitesurfing school is professionally managed and IKO licenced english speaking instructors will assure you quick results. You can rent brand new equipment from Liquid Force.

We offer you three great accommodations, each of which you are just an inch away from the kitesurfing school. From luxury to simple, all very clean and beautiful, we offer something for everyone; simple pousada rooms and luxury wooden Brazilian bungalows with ocean view and whirlpool. After a perfect day on the water, playing the wind and the waves, you can come back, relax and simply enjoy the chilled atmosphere around your accommodation.

Kitesurfing in Icaraizinho

Kitespot Icaraizinho Bay

The home of Icaraizinhos lies just outside the door of our partner kite school.

On the east side of the crescent-shaped bay of Icaraizinho the wind is slightly offshore. Therefore, the kite school is located in the western half of the beach.

The spot is located on the open water and is a combination of flat water and waves (no shallow water) and the wind and swell depend on the tide. The spot is always considered ‘kite bar’. At low tide, the ocean is mostly flat and offers excellent conditions for practicing new moves. At high tide you have perfect conditions for wave kiting.

In the morning the wind is slightly offshore and then turns to morning thermals, but with the onset of side-to side onshore from the right. Here you can count on high wind safety, the wind does not blow quite as strong as for example in Tatajuba (usually 3-5 knots less).

The windiest time is from July until the beginning of February.

Course / Gear

The kite school trains exclusively with the latest material from Liquid Force, great conditions for successful Kite sessions. The sheltered lawn directly in front makes it easier to get to the kite school and assemble the kites, so you can start right from there on the wide, empty beach.
