Kitesurfing around Canoa Quebrada / Fortím / Parajuru

Pretty amazing area to kitesurf, just south of Fortaleza! Most kitesurfers that visit Ceará, and even locals, will hardly know this little paradise, as they almost exclusively concentrate on the western beaches of Fortaleza! Almost all the literature and information online talk about the western spots, and very few talk about the eastern beaches. But there is definitely something to see around Canoa Quebrada, with great kitesurfing conditions!

On the road again… Three months traveling all over Brazil

It definitely felt like years since I had been on the road, traveling around the world and more recently around Latin America before covid-19 struck. Since then, I had chosen Brazil to spend time while the world crumbled in unreal lockdowns, first in Rio de Janeiro for 3 months, then surfing the Pandemic in Paradise in North-eastern Brazil. That had been a blessing for me and the best choice I could have though of while spending time in quarantine, first on my beach in Cumbuco in the state of Ceará, kitesurfing daily. and then 4 months later, when Brazil started to come back to normal around September, kitesurfing the whole coast of 3 Brazilian states in the Iron Macho Challenge – The “Iron Man of the Seas” – 400 km KiteSurfing Expedition across 3 Brazilian States. That was all so amazing and beautiful. But as […]

Surfing the Pandemic in Paradise… Life in a North-Eastern Brazilian town during Covid-19 times

The pandemic has had a devastating effect on the tourism industry around the world and digital nomads have been particularly affected by the events. In an instant, people living on the road had to find shelter and morph into a sedentary lifestyle. In my case, I chose to spend these hard times in my favorite country, even though it was one of the hardest hit by the virus. To keep my moral high, I needed to be near the ocean, connect with nature and surf my days away while waiting for the world to fix itself. What else could I do? I was asked to stay home… Might as well isolate in the ocean on a surfboard riding the waves! In This Article…1 Stuck in South America with borders closed2 Kitesurfing in Cumbuco, Ceara3 Life routine in Ceará during Covid4 Living in paradise!5 The Ocean […]
