Brazil – Gostoso – 2014

Completed

Introduction

After the success of last year it is with great please that we will be returning to São Miguel do Gostoso for another set of kite camps.

No kiting destination list would be complete without Brazil. While many may choose the popular spot of Cumbuco and the surrounding areas we have gone for São Miguel do Gostoso as it is one of the newer secrets of Brazil, untouched by mass tourism and offering the same consistent winds but at slightly less intimidating power.

We offer a spot where you will not feel crowded and intimidated by everyone fighting for space in the same lagoons, instead you will find the space the practice and improve your kiting.

This will allow you to get the maximum benefit from our friendly and experienced coaches, both pro riders and IKO qualified instructors working with you to push your riding and goals at a level and pace that you are comfortable with.

We also have selected the best accommodation right on the spot, with quality rooms, the best wifi in the area and a fantastic and friendly atmosphere.

Booking Info & Reservations

The Spot

Sao Miguel do Gostoso is a fishermen’s village located in the north-east of Brazil on the shore of Rio Grande do Norte state, 110 Km north of its capital, Natal and 1hr 15mins from Natal Airport (NAT).

The spot is one of the windiest areas of the planet, thanks to a costant trade wind together with special thermic effects and due to its location on the “esquina do continente” (corner of the continent).

The fantastic bay shaped by the cape is the perfect scenario for what is considered to be one of the best all-round spots in Brazil’s northeast. The huge area enables beginners to progress with confidence, whilst a sandy reef with perfect rolling waves approximately 600 meters from the coast provides fun for intermediate and advanced riders.

Wind direction is E-SE, side-off shore starboard tack (wind from the right), averaging 18 to 25 knts. Most commonly used kites are 7m to 11m and the water is 28°C so you can leave your wetsuit at home.

Accommodation

We at Kite Camp Pro understand that accommodation can make or break your holiday, so we have taken special care in choosing the lovely “Albergue Da Jangada” which is newly constructed to the highest quality with lovely rooms made of wood with natural ventilation.

It sits directly on the spot and you will be comfortable with quality rooms with private bathrooms, wifi, hammocks to relax in.

A great breakfast including breads, cakes, cheese, seasonal fruits and other delicacies of regional cuisine are just some of the items offered to the guests seeking flavour and balance.

They also have 2 “Presidential” rooms which are available on a first come first served basis (for a small additional fee) to those that are interested which have private balconies and a private hammock with extra space for those wanting to bit of something extra.

Flight Information

We understand that flights can have a huge difference on the cost of your camp so as always we recommend you book your flight AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Flights from Europe are with either TAP from Lisbon Portugal or Lufthansa from Frankfurt with connections to all major european cities. We estimate flights to cost from €700 – €900 ..of course the sooner you book the better.

We are more than happy to assist you in searching for flights or you can use the handy widget below.

Local Information

Brazil has a reciprocal visa system, so if your home country requires Brazilian nationals to secure a visa, then you will need one to enter Brazil. At the time of writing, American, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand citizens need visas, but citizens of the UK, France, Ireland and most other EU countries as well as South Africa do not. Check with the Brazilian embassy or consulate in your home country.

If you are unsure please let us know and we will research on your behalf.

There are also no specific vaccination requirements, however like all tropical destinations we would recommend you bring with you some form of mosquito repellant and if you are particularly sensitive to mosquito bites, so light longer trousers for the evenings.

Brazil’s currency is the real (often written R$); the plural is reais. One real is made up of 100 centavos.
1R$ is equivalent to approximately 0.35€/$0.45US / £0.30.

We recommend changing your money BEFORE travelling as this allows you to do so in the security of your own country with no stress or uncompetitive rates of having to do so at arrival in the airport. We also recommend taking smaller sized bills and not keeping all of your money in one place in your bags.
