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!

The “Marathon of the Seas” Expedition: KiteSurfing 350 km of Ocean Stretch Off the Brazilian Coast

Just imagine for a second undertaking the challenge of traveling on the ocean on a surfboard for an average of 90 km per day for 4 days in a row, reaching some of the most beautiful scenery available in Brazil, sleeping in small fishing village to recharge your batteries before hitting the waves again and again for over 6 hours daily. This is what I’ve been signing in for on this incredible journey of downwinder KiteSurf trip that took me on an adventure of more than 350 km of surfing in August 2020.

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!
