Jericoacoara, in the north of Brazil, has some of the most regular wind and outstanding conditions of anywhere. It’s no surprise the world’s best windsurfers come to train in this stunning resort.
From July until January, there is no better place to windsurf than Jericoacoara. From flat water to full on wave sailing, with over 90% days Force 4+ Aug. to Dec. and over 70% days Force 4+ July to January and November onwards.
There are three main spots. The Point, in front of the centre, mostly flat with small waves. Once outside, on the wind line, head to the famous Sunset Dune – the best freeride sailing in the bay. Malhada, upwind of the point, is the local jumping beach, although remote and with some rocks, so for advanced and pro sailors only.
Club Ventos is in the best location for windsurfers in Jeri, situated in a beautiful garden right on the water’s edge, so you can always keep an eye on the action or relax on the sunbeds.
