BRAZIL 2011 – TRAVEL STORY BY ANDI MEDER

Adreas Meder is our local rider from Germany. Few months ago, together with his friend Marian Hund they went to Brazil to extend their kiteboarding season. Here’s their story:


Recife
We started our trip on September the 22nd. We flew from Munich to Lisbon and then Recife.
Marian Hund and I were able to stay in a really nice Villa in Recife, thanks to my friend Jana. Jana was joining us for the first 3 weeks of the trip and we really had a lot fun together. The wind in Recife is not that strong, but most of the days it was perfect for the 12m² Nobile NHP. We had a great kitespot right in front of the Villa. During low tide there was flat, waist deep water and no other kites at all. A reef is breaking the waves and keeps the sharks away.

After the summer in Germany and the cold water, it felt really good to ride without a wetsuit again. The water and air temperatures were both around +30°C. Besides kiting we visited the nice town of Olinda, it has some really nice buildings and a stunning view over the City of Recife!
We also had a nice Speedboat trip through the mangroves, were horse Riding in the jungle and kart racing with 35 horsepower go-karts. As you can imagine, it never got boring for us in Recife.
Check the first video from Recife here. After 2 weeks in Recife, we needed to go to Cumbuco, where we booked a nice Pousada. A plane would have been too expensive, buses made trouble with the big boardbags, so we took a rental car and headed 1000km up north to Cumbuco.

Cumbuco
In Cumbuco life was pretty much the same every day. We lived in the “Cumbuco Guesthouse” for overall 9 weeks and went kiting nearly every day. In the morning we got a nice breakfast and did a downwinder to the cauipe lagoon afterwards. Sometimes we took a buggy instead, to bring our camera gear. At the lagoon we were kiting for 1 or 2 hours, did a break during midday and went out again in the afternoon. To go back to Cauipe town, we took one of the buggy-taxis.

There is another lagoon, placed in Tabuba, were you can go by bus really cheap. We went there for a couple of days and also were filming for the second episode.
For Dinner we were cooking chicken and rice, sometimes pasta or we went to one of the local restaurants, where you can eat really cheap. Nightlife isn’t that bad either :-) You can go for a drink or two in a lot of different bars and there´s a small nightclub, were you can party till the morning light.

The last week before we had to leave, I got the brand new 50Fifty kite and I liked it a lot!!! It´s such a nice kite, perfect pop and really low bar pressure during the pass!

So in our final episode we want to show you our Cumbuco Life, kiting in cauipe lagoon. Click here to watch it.

On December 7th we had to leave Cumbuco and flew back home to good old Germany. Waiting for our transit flight we were visiting Lisbon, it was sooo fu**ing cold😀

A big thanks to all people who made this trip possible and so awesome!!!
Thanks to my sponsors and special thanks to all my new friends from all over the world. You made this to such a good time for me!
Cheers! Andi
