The best wind conditions are from July through January. From November through March, the highlight are the waves, that can pass 2 meter high. That's when Jericoacoara receives the largest number of athletes and wind enthusiasts.

E o que não falta são opções: escolas e cursos com professores poliglotas para iniciantes, guarderias pra quem prefere usar o próprio equipamento e uma quantidade impressionante de points pra velejar.

Who comes to Jericoacoara behind adventure and adrenaline know: here the winds always blow in favor.

Surfin Sem Fim

Inspiração inevitavelmente leva à inovação. Foi assim que surgiu o Projeto Surfin Sem Fim! Uma novidade do E-group que integra algumas das pousadas e resorts parceiros, proporcionando aos velejadores de kite e windsurf uma experiência única de desafio e adrenalina, conhecendo lugares inusitados pelo mar, indo de um lugar a outro com acompanhamento e segurança. A ideia é oferecer uma experiência única, percorrendo longos percursos, passando por dunas, vilas de pescadores e mangues, sempre pelo mar, com acompanhamento de guias preparados e um veículo 4x4 em terra equipado com bebida e comida ao longo do caminho. O SSF Clássico é  o percurso entre Cumbuco e Preá, aproximadamente 270km “surfando sem fim”. Ao longo desse percurso você irá conhecer praias maravilhosas, através de uma percepção diferente, vista de dentro do mar: Cumbuco, Taíba, Paracuru, Lagoinha, Icaraizinho, Flexeiras, Munduaú e Baleia, chegando à charmosa Praia do Preá. A aventura pode ser feita com equipamento próprio ou alugado no Rancho do Kite, e é personalizada de acordo com os interesses do grupo: organizamos 3 ou mais dias, com aproximadamente 4 a 5 horas por dia surfando. As paradas são estratégicas e sempre em pousadas parceiras em frente a praia, para recarregar a bateria e continuar no dia seguinte. Organizamos downwinds personalizados pelo Brasil, desde o percurso clássico ou todo o litoral Cearense-Piauense-Maranhense com muita aventura e deslumbramento. Não tem como não ser uma experiência pra lá de poética!

Safety Rules

To ensure that your sailing season in Jeri is more pleasant and safe, please read carefully the following safety rules, drawn up by professionals familiar with local conditions:

  • Leewards preceding windwards: When two sailing crafts head in the same direction (they have the sail on the same side), the one who sails windwards has to give way to the leewards craft, because it is favoured by the wind. This is especially important in windsurfing, as the sailor who is leewards sails with his back to the wind, which makes it difficult for him to see the windwards sailor;
  • Starboard tack has right of way: If two windsurfers sail towards each other, the one whose right hand is the mast hand (starboard tack) has the right of way. When meeting sail boats, fishing boats, surfers etc., windsurfer have to give way, but when windsurfers encounter other sailing draft, motorboats or other powered craft, they have right of way. However, if you find yourself head-to-head with them it’s best to forget about the rules and just get out of the way;
  • It’s forbidden to sail in swimming zones, which are often separated by boundary markings. When windsurfing outside this zone, please keep a distance of about the length of your mast from others swimmers;
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times. If you carve downwind you must make sure that nobody is about to cross your path;
  • Keep an eye on your starting point so you don’t sail too far downwind;
  • Check your equipment from time to time;
  • Always make sure you are aware of existing conditions at your windsurfing location (e.g., best/worst wind directions, tides, dangerous currents, sea urchins, shallow areas, rocks below the surface, etc.);
  • In an emergency, the most important rule is to keep a cool head and calm down. Find out what happened or what is damaged, and think about repairing it in a way that allows you to sail back ashore;
  • If it’s impossible to go on, but wind and currents can bring you to a suitable landing zone, keep holding on to your equipment and let yourself wash up there, or lay on your board and paddle there;
  • If you are in a real trouble and can’t do anything, you must make the international emergency signal to anyone who may see you. Stand or kneel on your board and wave with both arms;
  • It is forbidden to sail in the kitesurfing area (wkich is separate from the windsurfing zone by a marking buoy);
  • It is forbidden to sail out of the marking buoy that represents the limit of sailing in the open sea.
  • We thank you for following the local safety rules. Please find more information with our team from Ticowind about local sailing conditions. We are always available to answer questions and assist with anything you need.

    Have a good sailing!
