Jericoacoara, windsurf in paradise

Each trip, each destination is different. In Jericoacoara, Jeri once you get there, we will not find in South Africa as waves, wind or a ruthless as well, not the wave of Moulay surfeable, but an almost magical combination of constant wind and paradisiacal setting. In August four windsurfers Spanish at different levels, we saw a spot that is accessible to all and that allows, from the start to satisfy the most expert. Our trip took us through Cumbuco to Jericoacoara and Paracuru. These two beaches are located between Fortaleza, which is the nearest airport, and Jeri, which is about 250 kilometers of roads in poor condition.

Go to Jericoacoara is expensive for the ticket, but is cheap for the stay and meals. Well deserved punishment for going over a week. Three weeks of our trip we were cut, but care must be ready to sail every day with sail 4.0 to 4.7 meters. Whatever the combination of flights, our destination is Fortaleza. This town has little interest and a late walk by us was enough to see that the fame of the Brazilian Girls do not just come here. Fortaleza 4x4 hire a taxi to move to Jeri. What's 4x4 is essential at least in the final stretch, as there is no road to get there. This sounds strange, but true: we have to drive on the beach and is part of the charm of the place. It is also possible to catch a bus that leaves daily from Fortaleza. When the road ends you come to a kind of all-terrain truck with wooden benches and experiencing what is driving the Paris-Dakar. If you bring your own material is interesting to rent a taxi to navigate Paracuru, a spot sure to please lovers of the waves and in which there is no rental charts. 

This village of beaches is only 20 kilometers from Fortaleza. Here the wind blows for 4.7 / 5.5 meters and no wave. I could open in the water and ride the 4.7 meters with the illusion of added brand new Ezzy 2006. Windsurfing in just three kilometers of beach, enjoyed a ¡!. Here we met Esperanza Benitez, Jaume Oliveras and me. Xavi Valls is 
join the group in Jeri. James came with a surprise, the table (a brand new angle) got lost on the flight! A few days later he received directly from Jeri. And while, to share my table. 
Why are but friends? 

As anticipated, the half past seven 4x4 us a taxi was waiting at the inn Cumbuco. It turned out to be a Land Rover Defender full team ready to cross rivers, dunes and so necessary. Direct Paracuru to navigate. Driving Rodney was exciting in itself. 
The beach where surfing is not the front Paracuru people but there is one kilometer to go, where there is only deserted white-sand beach and a restaurant. At half past nine and the wind began to rise and decided to mount the 5.4 meters of Jaume my table. Along the wind, grew a good side-shore wave. In a few hours already to 4.7 meters and the wave was important, very good for jumping and surfing. It was a surprise match Jordi Ibars company and in fact there was no one else, a couple of riders and we ... At three p.m. logged convinced we were the happiest people on Earth. 
We loaded up the 4x4 and to Jericoacoara. The roads are bad and are 200 kilometers long. The entry by the spectacular beach at night, our driver dominates the situation but we do not have as clear. Finally, we come to Jeri. 

The first thing that stands out is that there are no tall buildings or asphalt. The street is where we enter sand beach. In fact, the whole town is built on sand. There are no cars, few booguies, the cottages are well maintained and is full of charming restaurants and cute shops. Soon we realize that we have reached a very special place. 

A day in Jeri 
It would explain the very long three weeks of daily wind, because it found not a single day excursions booguie, the wonderful dinners, the capoeira, the sunsets ... etc. So I will just have a day in Jeri. 
The day begins early, at about ten. Sunglasses are a must, and a breakfast. They are so abundant and rich with snacks during the day, stay for dinner. 
Session sunscreen, the temperature is ideal to go swimming. Earlier wind is soft and leaves Hope to sail with starter material. Before the people the water is flat and does not cover, ideal for beach first start. 
Already 12 and Xavi is entering the water with its freeride, in a short time and has learned to put their feet in the planning and flip footstraps racing toward the area of the flag, where the castañote to 4.7 meters. 
It is now up to James and me. The wind is strong and the tide rises a half meter Olita in front of the flag. This is an indicator that put the club into a rock Dosventos strategic. We get to 4.7 meters and take the ramps to jump. As each day began with the routine training maneuvers to get new ones. Falling far is the only way, but with the water so warm, it's a pleasure! 
They are three in the afternoon, we met all to rest, hope lies in a hammock under a palm tree on a coconut water. We sat down with her and ask some pizzas while a girl with a guitar sings with a voice soft. Everyone commented on the navigation, each at their level, joked. This is life. 
The pizzas are completed quickly and with fresh batteries, each one returns to his saddle. The beach before the tide of change is different. In water there are some local lads with a very high level boards and sails PROAS cut and colored tape americana. Impressive. Two board upwind, James and I are going to mesh. This is a beach where waves are more, but messy. We can surf any wave and jumping. 
It's five and the sun is going down very fast. Jeri happens every day in one of the best sunsets in the world. From the water we can see that people go up to the high dunes to watch the show. The sun sets at half past five and leave the water a little before, wrapped in golden light. Another great day. 
But here after the sun is a long days ahead. And hung with the material, went to take a skewer. Some grandmothers are on the main street with a cart and a barbecue skewer and you cook the most delicious thing you remember, chicken or cheese. The bar makes Brazilian music, you go to the people, here the level He is much better! 

And seven and we are devastated, we retire to enjoy a siesta, the Brazilian style. 
Two hours ... and nine hours for dinner. We put good-looking, that is, to go barefoot and went to go swimming with a shirt, shorts and flip flops. However, duchaditos. 
Dinners here are delicious and economical. The quantity and quality of restaurants is very high. Today we call for the most typical dishes, the native Peixe. Each dish is always for two people and every time we go bust. 
Are 11 and this time we must be on the main street. The posts are complemented pinchitos now posts on everything from cakes and drinks. Caipirinhas cocktails and all kinds of kids that you prepare when squeezing fresh fruit and moving the shaker vigorously. Two have enough to start the night and dance the Forró or whatever, until five o'clock. Morning re-start this wonderful routine ...
