The Place: This Wing Safari trip will begin from Jericoacoara, Brasil and travel the northeast coast finding the perfect spots for flat water, ocean waves and downwingers. We will be visiting Paracuru, Guajiru and Jeri and staying in amazing hotels at each spot.
Jericacoara is the ultimate winter winging destination. Colin has been coming here for many years and his knowledge of the area is second to none.
Jericoacoara in Ceará, Brazil, is a small fishing village, which has become a beach hippie mecca, situated some 300 km west of Fortaleza. Jeri is a place removed from the hurried modern world of screeching sirens, maniac deadlines, traffic jams and endless lineups. A place where streets are paved with sand, where beaches stretch as far as the eye can see and where warm water marries with palm swaying breezes.
It's really the complete package that makes Jeri so incredible, not only can wind and sun be guaranteed from September to January every day, it’s also the great feeling you get in the place. At sunset the whole village, locals or tourists come down to beach for what could be described as a magical hour!
Some guys are playing football, others perform their Capoeira, some people walking up the big sand dune to get the best views of the sunset and others are just enjoying a cold beverage watching it all happening, whatever you feel like doing, its amazing to be part of this pretty unique atmosphere!
