your unforgettable
kite holiday in Brasil

Our VDWS Kitecenter offers you everything you can expect from a modern kite station. We have qualified instructors at your disposal, who with passion, fun and experience will help you to learn your new sport, give you the necessary confidence after a longer break or boost you to the next level in intensive courses. Here all your questions about kiting (spot, choice of material, ...) will be answered, the latest core material is available for testing or rental and in our shop you can supplement or renew your equipment. We have been working with CORE kites for years. We have XR, GTS and NEXUS kites available, so that we have the right material for every riding style. Every season we change the kites, so that you always kite with the latest material.

Kite lessons

Our two shallow and spacious training areas in combination with our dedicated, experienced and certified instructors offer you the optimal conditions for your entry into the fascinating sport of kiting. With constant wind from morning till late at night, only you - and maybe your fitness - decide how much time you want to spend on the water! Here you will definitely make it - even if it might not have worked out anywhere else!

You've already completed your first few metres, would like to go really high or finally know a particular trick? Our instructors will be happy to help you with that too. In order for you to achieve the best possible learning success, all our courses, unlike in most kite schools, take place with only 2 students per instructor or in private lessons.

With us there is no mass processing, no prescribed times - we only focus on you and your wishes.

Individual lessons: Intensive course for all entry levels, course content adapted to your level.

Refresh: We give you security after a longer break.

Beginner/Basic: Your first steps (assembly and disassembly of the kite, safety systems, first flight exercises, controlled starting and landing of the kite, wind window, safe control of the kite in the water, bodydragging, first waterstart exercises, theoretical basics).

Beginner/complete: Up to independence (basic content plus self rescue measures, kite relaunch in the water, bodydragging upwind, waterstart and riding in both directions, right of way rules).

Advanced/Extended: One step further (controlled riding and kiting upwind, controlling the speed, changing direction without stopping, independent kitesurfing).

Advanced/complete: Probably your last course (extended content plus switch, different turning manoeuvres, theory of jumping technique and first jumps).

Rental

Forget the extra packing stress (what sizes do I take with me? My bordbag is already too heavy again! Maybe I should get a new harness after all?). You don´t need the annoying check-in procedure plus extra fees.

With our very reasonable rental prices it is hardly worth taking your own equipment with you on the trip.

To guarantee you the greatest fun and learning success, we only equip our station with the newest and most suitable equipment. We change our equipment every season, so you can always use the latest kite and board.

With the latest kites from Core, boards from Future, Nobile, F-One and others, we are always able to provide you with the most suitable equipment.

Downwinder

We also constantly offer downwinders for experienced kiters. The downwinder of Almofala is particularly varied. We bring you with our pick up to the nearby Almofala (approx. 20 minutes). After you set up on the very wide sandy beach, you start through the shorebreak into the sea. After approx. 3 km we walk over a small sandbank into the river, which runs parallel to the beach for approx. 5.5 km and then flows into the sea. There you will find plain water to "play" with and a beautiful landscape to enjoy. After we rode the waves again for about 1 km in the sea, we make a side trip to the "Secret Spot". This is located at the very beginning of the lagoon and offers behind a shallow sandbank also extremely smooth water and a large landing area. Here you can practice your latest trick without any danger. Finally, we kite the last 2 km back on the sea to the Pousada, where we arrive after 2-3 hours, happy and exhausted.

Price incl. guide approx. 20 € (depending on number of participants)

Acarau approx. 25 km: Here you start with the guide directly at our beach. You kite about 25 km on the sea along the coast to the beach of Acarau, where you will be picked up by one of our drivers.

Price incl. guide approx. 20 € (depending on number of participants)

Espraiado about 12 km: Also for this downwinder we start directly at our beach. At the sea it goes along the coast about 12 km downwind to the Baracca of Flavia. There you can enjoy fresh lobsters and a cold beer. Afterwards we pick you up and bring you back to our pousada. This downwinder is perfect for your "first downwind/beginners".

Price incl. guide approx. 20 € (depending on number of participants)

Downwind individually or on your own: Even though the Ilha has a lot to offer as a kite spot, even the most adventurous among you can get more. If you can't get enough, there are hardly any limits here on the north-east coast of Brazil. Guided and accompanied downwinders of over 1000 km in 12 days are offered by various partners.

In addition to our downwind offers, we can also organise trips of several days with our partner station in Taiba for wave fans.
