For our second kite surfing downwinder in Brazil Uncharted Kite Sessions continues immediately after the Classic Route and jumps right into the Delta Route October 8th to 14th for what promises to be another epic down wind kite surfing experience along the beautiful Brazilian north coast. Last years epic journey was featured in The Kite Mag, KiteWorld and Kite Soul Magazines, and this year promises to be even more spectacular. At a length of 270km’s, the Delta trip is one of the most challenging of the Brazilian down wind trips. We begin our journey in Preá, traveling along the coast to Atins, a small fishing village that sits on the edge of the Amazon jungle.
Uncharted Kite Sessions specifically chose this route as one of only two routes along the north coast for our annual kite surfing down winder as this route offers the best waves on the entire north coast. Last year this section of the coastline blew us away with it’s unbelievable beauty, remoteness, and above all the amazing wind and wave conditions that are world class. Bay after bay for hundreds of kilometers we rode perfect breaking waves all alone except for our entourage. Imagine yourself kite surfing for hundreds of kilometers, discovering exotic natural treasures, hidden dunes and unspoiled beaches. Living this real adventure in comfort while recharging overnight in the best pousadas in Brazil. Riding fantastic distances in safety, always supervised by professional guides and receiving coaching from the Uncharted kite surf team. This is a once in a lifetime adventure, and a trans formative experience.
The Brazilian coast from Ceará to Maranhão receives constant daily trade winds, ensuring a high quality sailing experience during the entire wind season. This is the only place on earth to kite surf along hundreds of kilometers of untouched coastline, feeling confident about the wind and water conditions.
This is a true adventure. The coaches will have the freedom to ride along the group and spend time with every rider. Strategic meeting points are chosen to stop the vehicles to allow us to hydrate our bodies with healthy beverages and food, as well as to freshen up our memory about the sailing ahead.

Strength Of Wind
The fall season in Brazil is statistically the windiest months of the year with average daily winds ranging around twenty-five knots. Most people ride from six to twelve meter kites depending on weight. The wind is predominantly from the east, as is the swell. But as it is Mother Nature, and she is unpredictable, it is better to have a kite and not need it, than to need a kite and not have it.
Wind & Climate
With an average temperature over 30°C (86°F) in the fall, Brazil sun is very intense. Be sure to bring lots of sunscreen with high UV protection. Zinc is always a good idea. Long sleeve UV protection jerseys are also a good idea. Also bring a water hat that can attach to your clothing. If you are used to riding with sunglasses, it is a good idea to bring them.
Do You Need Your Own Gear?
It is recommended to bring two surf boards, two bars and at least two kites as back up as there are no kite shops along the coast once we pass Jericoacoara. This is extremely important. Be sure to inspect and test all your gear before leaving for the trip to insure that you will not have gear failure while on trip. There is nothing worse than sitting in the truck and missing a session because of broken gear that could have been fixed before leaving.
