What you'll do

This experience is about Kitesurfing in Rio, in one of the prettiest and most popular areas called Barra da Tijuca.

Depending from your level we teach the basics of kiteboarding. To start this is all about reading the wind and safely setting up the kite. We then move to learning how to fly the kite. This is the part that gets you hooked literally. The raw power of the wind!!! Keep in mind Day 1 is about learning to fly the kite on land. **
