Windsurfing Into The Unknown - Jericoacoara Spot Guide Part 4

In the fall of 2012, Windsurfing Into the Unknown (Philip Soltysiak and Michael Rossmeier) explored around the famous windsurfing and tourist town of Jericoacoara, Brazil, to see what kind of windsurfing spots they could find. They created a 4-episode web-series showcasing good spots to windsurf that are accessible from Jericoacoara. A few weeks ago, we featured the first 3 episodes... Here's the fourth!

In this final episode, we feature wave sailing at Praia de Malhada, a side-onshore wave spot just upwind of Club Ventos in Jericoacoara. The conditions are the best there at mid-tide. If it is your first time there make sure to check out the spot at low-tide so you are aware of where to watch out for rocks. The spot is not particularly dangerous, but it is also not a beginner spot.

Windsurfing Into The Unknown's mission is to discover and explore the world's coastlines, learn with and through local cultures with an open mind, and respect for the natural environment, guided by our passion and addiction to nature's elements of wind and water.
