Uruaú Kitesurfing Holiday and Travel Guide

Uruaú

Brazil

Why Visit?

Ninety kilometres south of Fortaleza, the tiny village of Uruaú is famous for its 24-hour blowing wind! The wind is perfect for riders learning new tricks, improving their skills or beginners wanting to progress. Even though Uruaú is a tiny village, it has everything you'll need as it is close enough to Fortaleza but free from any city stresses! The fact that you are at a wave spot, as well as a flat water lagoon, make it worth a visit altogether; you can choose what you are in the mood for!

Wind and Weather

The season here is from July until January and Uruaú offer perfect wind during those months. It's boardshorts/bikini weather during the day (even on the water), and then it cools down just a little in the evening to have the perfect goodnights sleep! The kite sizes mostly needed here are 9m and 12m kites for men and 7m and 10m kites for women. There is a massive white sandy beach for you to set up your kite on in front of the Pro Kite Centre and the staff over there are always happy to help you launch and land your kite.

Getting Around

Another advantage in Uruaú is, you don't need to worry about where to go kitesurfing, the spot's right there! All the accommodation and restaurants are 2-5 minutes walk from the spot.

Food and Drink

As Uruaú is just a little town, the options are a little bit limited when it comes to food choices. The main meals you will easily find will generally be a choice of good meat, seafood (crayfish, lobster, shrimps), pizzas, hamburger, fruits/vegetables can be bought from the store and of course the famous Brazilian Acai!

Recommended Schools

Nightlife

Because Uruaú is mainly focussed on kitesurfing and training, there aren't really any parties going on daily unless it's a special occasion (there is a little bar for that) If you are in the mood to party, then you would get a taxi to Canoa Quebrada which has an enjoyable Reggae bar on the beach. Option number two would be to head to Fortaleza and that would be a proper night out in the city. In Uruaú, 2 -3 times a week the kite centres will organize a dinner somewhere with their guests. The full moon party at Kite Pro Brazil is a night you do not want to miss, this starts with a BBQ around 6-7 PM and as the moon slowly illuminates the beach everyone goes for a Full Moon kitesurfing session.

No Wind?

It is rare to hear that phrase around here, but if it should happen - everybody heads to the spa to relax. They are secretly relieved that they are obligated to take a day off the water and rest!
Many people enjoy the buggy trips to visit the fisherman's villages or to the dunes, where you can go sand-boarding and explore Brazil's gorgeous nature. If you enjoy horse-riding, you want to go for a sunset ride on the beach; you will not regret it!

Overall a fantastic place with some priceless unspoilt kiting spots. With great people and food and cheap beer (they even come with a plate of chips as well if you’re lucky), you can't beat it. Northern Cyprus deserves attention but don’t tell everyone; we don’t want to spoil it with overcrowding like some of the more famous spots. Wind and Weather…
