The famous wind of North Brazil starts to be really strong and consistent in this region. The more west you travel from here, the more wind you find. Icarazinho offers slightly less wind then Jericoacoara with normally 4,7 – 5,3 sails during the high season; June-December.
As the rest of the coast, you will find the strongest wind during mid day and the afternoons. During the mornings you will have lighter winds which are perfect for beginners and for practicing a new trick. Or just sleep in…
Before you get all excited about all the nightlife, banana-boat rides and hectic shopping you want to do here, we must say: you wont be doing that.
What you will be doing in Icarazinho, apart from sailing one of Brazil’s best spots, is to breath. Icarazinho, the beach and its people offers the most gentle environment you will ever find. Its a laidback place where you must do laidback stuff. We actually plantes many palmtrees to host all our hammocks.
SO ACTIVITES WE CAN GARANTUEE IN QUALITY AND QUANTILY:
*Breath and relax, our centre will be built upon this whole philosophy.
*Fishing, you are welcome to help the fishermen with their catches
*Boat tour in the rivers, cheap and beautiful
*Romantic dinners, anywhere; on the beach under the stars or in one of the few restaurants in town.
*Surf. And we mean all of you. Young, old, beginner or PWA pro. The best beginner spot in Brazil, but yet capable to offer double forward ramps for those who dares.
ClubVentos Icaraizinho Resort is an unique spot, neverless the big buzz around the windsurfing community. When Kauli Seadi says a spot is worth checking out, it probably is.
Icarazinho offers a diverse and amazing windsurfing spot (or spots). It reminds a lot of Jericoacoara, as both places are situated in bays with specific wave points. ClubVentos Icarazinho center has its porch right on the beach on the upwind side of the bay, just next to the point.
You will find a big flat water area by the center, which is protected by a reef. During low tide the reef sticks up outside this area and stops nearly all water movement , and you will have the whole bay as a perfect freeride / freestyle area. Most part of the inner bay is waist / shoulder deep which makes it a perfect beginner spot, especially during the mornings with lighter winds. As the tide raises smaller waves appear which are perfect for easy wave practice.
Three minutes upwind sailing from the freeride / freestyle area you will find Icarazinho’s wave spot. A reef, combined with fishermen’s old wood logs creates a break for the more advance waverider / jumper. Brawzinho and Kauli had no problem doing double forwards during their stop here.
