Endless Lagoons and our Pousada directly at the Spot
Our kite centre is located right next to your accommodation at the river mouth. Just a few hundred meters further down the river you’ll find another awesome spot with small ‘kicker waves’, and only four kilometres away you can access a huge kiteable freshwater lagoon. You can kite all day then unwind with new friends that feel like you’ve known each other for life.
Tatajuba, a name that awakens the senses! This small, almost forgotten place lays west of Jericoacoara (“Jeri” for short) on the mouth of a river. You’ll find plenty of space, wind and lots of possibilities for kiting. And if you want to party, Jeri, with its laid-back atmosphere and wild nightlife, is not far away and worth at least one trip.
Kitesurfing in Tatajuba
This really is a kitesurf paradise: one of the best shallow water spots with the most reliable and strongest wind in Brazil. The wind blows constantly from June to the end of February and makes sure that you’ll have nearly endless kitesurf sessions. When the spots around Fortaleza “lose the puff” in December, you’ll still have enough wind in your kite here for another two months. The spot is located right next to your accommodation and on the mouth of a river. Even at high tide you can find enough shallow areas where you still can stand. You’ll have an unimaginable amount of space to cruise around and try out new jumps. A few hundred meters further down the mouth of the river, you’ll have another awesome spot with small “kicker waves” and only four kilometers away from a big sweet-water lagoon.
Courses are offered for beginners, intermediate and advanced kitesurfers. Of course, all courses are given according to VDWS standards and only by licensed kite instructors. After your session, you can chill out in one of the hammocks with a cool Caipirinha, share your experiences with the other kiteboarders or order a delicious snack in the school’s own restaurant. For the courses you’ll be trained with the latest equipment from Core Kiteboarding.
The KiteWorldWide Kiteschool is equipped with the latest Core Kiteboarding Equipment. Feel free to rent anything you like, either a complete package or simply a board or a kite. We have also directional boards as well as foil boards in Tatajuba. If you want to chill out or grab a snack or drink after your kite session you are more than welcome to enjoy delicious local cuisine and cold drinks in our own restaurant and bar directly at the kite school.

Kitesurfing around Tatajuba
You’ll find the wave spot just a few 100 meters away from the Pousada, shortly after the river mouth on the ocean side. Here you’ll experience nice kickers in the waves and good wind. A perfect spot for both wave-beginners as well as advanced wave-kitesurfers as the wind has a perfect angel to the waves.
Downwind Tours (Guriu-Tatajuba & Tatajuba-Camocim)
Tatajuba is a perfect start for downwind day tours. The kitesurf school will bring you to Guriu, and guide you on your tour.
You can also start directly at Tatajuba direction Camocim. Both downwind tours offer about 15 km with variable wave conditions, everything from one to three meter big waves.
Tatajuba River Mouth
This spot is right next to our accommodation. It’s a river mouth whose further course ends in the ocean. The entire area is, for the most part, shallow enough to stand in at high tide. At low tide you can just walk to the end of the river mouth and kite in the sea. The wind at this spot is strong and reliable. On really windy days, you can also go to the spot at Laguna La Torta. In spite of the awesome conditions here, there are never very many kiters around.
Laguna la Torta
The nearby lagoon “Lagoa da Torta” is a much more famous spot with awesome kitesurf conditions. This beautiful sweet-water lagoon with a big standing range of shallow waters, lays in the middle of the dunes and stretches for 16 kilometers into the land. The wind might be less strong and a bit gusty, due to the surrounding dunes. It is, however, perfect for days when the wind is too strong at the coast.
On the beach, there are plenty of coconut palms and a “Barraca”, the Brazilian word for small restaurant on the beach. After a successful day on the water or during a short break, you can relax in a hammock and enjoy a cold coconut.
This spot is about 4 km away from the pousada and reachable by buggy transfer (at an additional charge).
In the farer surroundings of Tatajuba you can find the Secret Spot, with the ultimate kitesurf conditions. In order to keep it a secret, you can get further information when you are here from our kite instructor at the Pousada…
Halfway between Jeri and Tatajuba is another world class spot with glassy water. Perfect for a freestyle session followed by a downwinder back to Tatajuba.
KiteWorldWide Beach Club Tatajuba
The KiteWorldWide Beach Club – Food
In the restaurant located right at the beach just above the kite school you get all the local cuisine you could ask for. The dishes vary from fresh fruit, yummy acai bowls to directly caught fish and the best beef.
The KiteWorldWide Beach Club – Drinks
What’s better then a Caipirinha in Brazil? A freshly made cold Caipirinha right after all day of kitesurfing. If you fancy a cold soft drink or a beer you know from back home, that’s also great! We got you covered.
Beachbuggy & Sandboarding
If you need a little change from water and kiting, you speed through the enormous dunes in Funil with a beach buggy. Taking it to the extreme would be to try out the sand boarding in the dunes.
Wellness & Yoga
Massages directly at the beach, after a kitesession?
Excursions to both cities of Jericoacoara and Camocim
Tatajuba is located between the city well known to kite and windsurfers, Jericoacoara (30 km) and the fishing community, Camocim (25 km). You can reach each one of these places either by public transportation or with the beach buggy.
Jericoacoara, or ‘Jeri’ as insiders name it, is known for its relaxed atmosphere and wild nightlife. The night really gets going around midnight, and everyone who can keep going longer can party all night long.
Although Jeri only consists of four sandy streets, there is an astonishing number of restaurants, pousadas, and small, interesting shops.
Active vacationers have the chance to let some steam off in Jeri. Apart from kitesurfing, you can learn the popular Brazilian battle dance, Capoeira, on the beach, go sand boarding in the dunes or try your luck on the back of a horse.
Camocim is located on the mouth of the Rio Coreaú on the border of the “Land of endless possibilities”, Piaui. Here you’ll find post offices, banks, hospitals, shops, a bus station and lots of different hotels and pousadas. The market and village life are definitely worth a visit!
