Join me and a small group of kiters for an epic week in a magical resort in Camocim, Brazil. It’s windy every day and the flat water makes this place a world-class destination for kite coaching. We’ll stay at the best accommodation located right on the beach. The entire resort, Baia Das Caraubas Glamping, will be booked out exclusively for our group. The resort and my team will cater to all of our needs so we can focus on progression and enjoying the time together. I’m super excited to host a clinic at this amazing location again! Insane progression awaits!
More than just a kite trip
The goal of this clinic is to bring passionate kiters together in a fun, collaborative environment to work on being the best versions of ourselves. It’s a trip in which we will progress as kiters, push ourselves to learn new things, both on and off the water, and possibly even walk away with life-long friendships.
Baia Das Caruabas Glamping is located right at the spot! I’ve stayed there before and I’ve got to say, the experience was top-notch. From the friendly, accommodating team running the beach-front resort, to the immaculate facilities, this spot is nothing short of amazing.
We’re going to be kiting for hours every day, so we’ve got to make sure we’re putting tasty, nutritious food in our bellies! We will have 3 meals a day prepared in the on-site restaurant.
We use BBTalkin radios so that we can talk to each other whilst you’re on the water. I give you exactly the advice you need, right when you need it!
It’s my job to take years of trial and error and share the optimal path for you to progress. I communicate the lessons I’ve learnt along my journey in many different ways. One of the most important ways to learn is in the classroom, before we hit the water! Once you’re truly able to understand something, you’re much more capable of doing it. I’ve got a presentation to break down every fundamental of big air kiting, from edging, to take off, to heli loops, kiteloops, gear selection and more.
Not only will my camera-man film sick clips for you to remember this amazing trip, but we will also dissect every detail of your kiting to find out what we’re doing well, what we’re doing wrong and figure out the path to progress. Seeing yourself making the mistakes is a crucial part of learning new skills.
Arrive at the airport on any day and at any time and I’ll have you transported in a private car to Camocim. If you want to spend a few nights somewhere else before the clinic, I’ll have you dropped off there in stead.
Flat water, the occasional small kickers and wind every single day. If that’s not a recipe for progress, I don’t know what is! I spend most days on my 8 and 9 meter XR. Please consult this table to see what kites you should bring.
These sizes are assuming you are riding a bow/delta kite (CORE XR, Duotone Rebel/Evo, Naish Pivot, Ozone Edge, North Orbit). If you are riding a more C-shaped kite like a GTS, Nexus, Dice, etc. then you can add 1 meter to the sizes you see below.

Michal first came to me for coaching in September 2019. At the time, he was kiting pretty well! Jumping around 10-12m I’d say. He had a lot of time on his hands and was eager to progress. Since I found him to be such a great guy, we bro’d down big time and started traveling together. I proceeded to coach him and he, being the natural he is, absorbed every bit of info I could give to him. Since he was already a keen photographer, he started filming me more and more often. 1 thing led to another and he became my full-time camera-man. Throughout our journey, he has continued to progress at his videography and his kiting. Nowadays he is editing many of my YouTube videos, jumping 20-30m all the time and sending massive loops! I am super grateful to have him as my right hand man! You’re going to love hanging with the man! I’m so proud of him and his progress! His progression is testimony to what happens when you combine effort with good direction. I view progress along any path as 2 things: 1, the gas in the tank that powers you along the road and 2, the directions you take in your journey. I’m here to offer you directions. Meet me with your best effort and we’re going to do great together!
SIMPLE: We are giving you transport to and from all airports. We’ll have you collected in a private taxi at any time that suits you!
You fly to Fortaleza (5 hours from clinic), Jericoacoara / Cruz (1.5 hours from clinic) or Parnaiba (2 hours from clinic) Airports.
Fortaleza is the furthest from Camocim, but there are more flights going there. Although it’s a further drive from Fortaleza, the drive is actually pretty chilled and the car is comfortable, with plenty of space and AC. I’ve done the transfer a couple times and it’s not bad at all!
You can also rent an affordable car at one of the airports and drive to the clinic if it’s more convenient for you.
I bring extra XR’s and bars to my clinic so you can see what all the fuss is about. I’ve heard people say that great riders could even shred on an IKEA bag, but that simply isn’t true. We’re talking about highly technical, aerodynamic wings at the end of the day and some of them are simply better than others. CORE is not the only great kite out there, don’t get me wrong. I’ve enjoyed riding other kites, but I choose to ride CORE because I’ve found the performance and the quality of the gear beats everything else I’ve ever ridden. If you’re looking to ride the best gear, I’m happy to give you the opportunity! I still ask that you bring all your own gear, as there is limited demo gear available and we have to share.
You are welcome to bring your significant other to this trip. I understand that your time is precious and you may well want to share these amazing times with your loved one. However, if your partner wants to join for the coaching as well, please shoot me a mail so we can arrange that.
Yes, you can come to the clinic 1 day early to get settled in early if you like. It’s $200 US for a 1 day early check-in (with you significant other included free of charge).
If you are flying to the US after Brazil, you only need to get an antigen test with test certificate. These are easy to get at the airport before flying home (takes 15 minutes). If you need a PCR test, there is RT-PCR testing in Sao Paolo and Rio De Janeiro airport. It takes up to 4 hours to get your results. See a list of test centers here. I can also arrange PCR testing at if there’s a large enough group to share the cost of the nurse coming out to our resort.
As long as you are able to ride independently and you aren’t a total beginner, you will find immense value in joining the clinic.
Yes the internet is pretty reliable. If something goes wrong with the internet (unlikely), we’ll drive you into town 20 minutes away to get connected.
If you are not allowed to enter Brazil due to Brazil closing borders, you will receive a full refund.
If your country is not permitting you to travel due to border closures within your country, you will receive a partial refund of $1500.
If you are not able to make it to the clinic due to your flight being canceled, or due to you getting COVID prior to travel, you will not receive any refund. You may wish to fly to Brazil a day or 2 earlier to hedge against this (unlikely) possibility.
That being said, I have been traveling throughout COVID (USA, Mexico, Brazil, Kenya, Spain, Italy, France, South Africa etc.) and I have not had a single flight canceled, except for during March 2020. My friends have also been traveling with great success. I think we are past those days, thankfully.
This may sound harsh, but please be aware that even if you are not able to make it, I still have to pay my staff and the resort to run this clinic. Your kind understanding is much appreciated.
It’s right on the spot
Most countries do not require a visa to enter Brazil for tourism for stays of up to 90 days. Please give it a quick search.
All meals are included, so depending on whether or not you would like to purchase anything, you may want to budget on $5-$20 US per day.
Appliances in Brazil have plugs like this. The voltage is 110 in some parts and 220v in others. Be prepared for both.
It’s best to bring cash in Brazilian Reais.
