So further to the conversation on the sessions page....

Flights are coming up roughly half what they were for last November...if we book early enough.

Cumbuco has changed massively over the last few years. It also offers way more choice of spots to ride, in particular for surf.

We will never stay in one spot and always break the trip up with travel up the coast. We have just met the owner of one of the best pousadas on the whole coast in Icarazinho. He took us to spots we would never have found..like an oyster farm where we ate like kings. I have his contact details for future trips.

We had very light winds today in Cumbuco but still people were out on bigger kites (12m) and I was only kite out on whole coast here later when it dropped further...12m Ultra and Jackson saved the day once again.

I'll post this up on a new thread specific for Brazil.

ps one week would really work, for one thing we'd likely be somewhere hours up the coast from Cumbuco as well
ps I'll try post up a few pics from Cumbuco when I can get some.

I've added Andy

It's possible that we would add a second week if enough people

Spent the start of the year in Cumbuco with Marc, Ray and Yuri my expectations weren't that high as we'd been warned by Marc and others not to expect wind, however, the first two weeks it defied expectations and was windy, the third week the rain started and wind disappeared. As a place Cumbuco was a typical South American town a bit rough and ready but had more than enough restaurants to provide great food at extremely low prices. I understand from Marc the town has seen significant improvements over the last couple of years and compared to Cabarete was better. The downwinders we made were amazing, the prevailing winds and waves coupled with the beaches made you feel like you should only experience such things through Video clips not actually be participating. Booked for all of November, only 40 weeks 4 days to go ( 408,960 minutes), and I can't wait. Thanks Marc, Ray and Yuri for an absolutely fantastic experience!!!.
