Onwards to South America

12 07 2011

The journey continues but my time travelling and kiting around France, Sardinia and Morocco is almost done.  Next, its time to start booking flights as I turn my attention to South America.

Downwinders in Essaouira

I’m being lured by the waves and wind in Northern Peru, and the fresh powdery snow on the volcano peaks of Chile are making me drool over some potential snowkiting.  I’m finding it tough to get reliable information about snowkiting in Chile and Argentina so if anybody can point me in the right direction then that would be great!

Play time in Dakhala

I also really want to go back to Brazil, which may seem crazy after all the time I spent there last year, but I have some unfinished business to do.  While rushing through my 2000km world record I passed by what looked like some of the most pristine, untouched kite beaches that offered both flat water and wave riding options.  They are what I call my secret spots (and yes I am keeping them a secret for now), while I pull together some ideas about potentially sharing these locations with others through a new business venture which will offer a very different kite holiday compared to the current downwinder between Fortaleza and Jeri option.

Unhooked moves in Dakhala

I am however looking for some kite guinea pigs who might want to help share the adventure with me, so if you are an advanced kitesurfer and in Brazil during August or November then drop me a note.  Also if you have a well run Pousada or accommodation service north of Fortaleza or provide kite services or downwind trips in Brazil or Peru then I am also looking for partners and can help promote your services, just leave a comment below.

Hey Louis!

Was nice to meet you in Dakhla a couple of weeks back. Hope you had a good time for the rest of it although am hearing reports that it was pretty sweet after the two days of no wind.

Anyway hope you have a good time in South America. Let me know of any further travels or when you are in the UK/South Wales area so we can have a session with the club!

Cheers,

Johan
