Episode 3 is OUT – Join the Duotone crew for the next 12 minutes for another episode of ‘Out of the Box, a series that follows the Duotone Team riders as they progress through the season on the GKA world tour and everything that happens outside of the box.

Life on the world tour has been severely disrupted in the past years by the spread of Covid-19, the travel restrictions and the changes that have affected all of us. As a result, the GKA world tour has been cancelled, stops not running, and almost two seasons without a world champion crowned. This is the last tour stop for the 2021 season, and after our previous episode in Tarifa, Spain, we see the world champions crowned at the end of the year in one of the world best kiteboarding locations; Brazil.

Brazil has always been a hub for kiteboarding freestyle and one of the places where progressions lead the way each season, with new tricks being landed, new champions crowned, and some of the worlds best conditions as you travel up the coast. The trip spanning from Cumbucco north to Jericoacoara is one of kitesurfing’s most famous downwind trips. The 250km downwinder or drive through this epic coastline is a must-visit for any keen kitesurf enthusiast.

The spots that we recommend stopping at along the way are:

  • Cumbuco
  • Paracuru
  • Lagoinha
  • Icaraizinho
  • Ilha Do Guajiru
  • Guriu Lagoon
  • Jerrcoacoara
  • Tatajuba

In many ways, this is the best kiteboarding destination in the world at this time of year, and there are endless options to explore. If you would like individual recommendations about where to stay and how long to go, please comment below the video. Let us know what you think of this trip, if you have done it and what you would also recommend!
