Jeri Brazil 07-17 January 2023

Run By : Peter Hart Windsurfing Clinics

Join Peter Hart's 9th windsurf clinic to the iconic windsurfing resort of Jericoacoara, Brazil. Peter is back to give a Masterclass in wavesailing in January 2022 to one of the best venues in the world for wave sailing and learning to wave sail.

"If it isn't officially the best place in the world to learn to sail waves, it should be. It's also fine for the intermediate free-rider just wanting to 'hoon' around on fast kit and attack the essentials of planing and gybing," says Peter. "Better still the authorities have released a special drug into the air that makes everyone smile and sway with the music. It is SUCH a relaxing place and hence is a favourite with non-windsurfing partners."  Here's the low down from Peter.

Jericoacoara, Brazil
Jeri lies in an unspoiled national park a 4 hour drive to the west of Fortalesa The last hour or so is off road and the last half of that is actually along the beach. You can’t believe where you are. Jeri is a fishing village built on sand.

There are no tarmac roads – just sand streets. Nestling on Brazil’s equatorial north coast, ‘Jeri’ is windsurfing paradise. It is the most reliably windy place I have ever windsurfed. On top of that the sailing area with its friendly waves and flat water, appeals to all levels but especially those looking to get into and improve their wave sailing. Having said that, the water inshore between the waves is flatter than flat so it’s also a great spot to work on gybes and the like.

Sailing Area & Conditions

A 'windsurfing paradise' with some of the most reliable winds, friendly waves and super flat water inbetween to work on those gybes during January. It's a great week for all levels and to holiday with non windsurfing friends and partners.

"It’s the most consistently windy place I know." says Peter. "Jeri’s windy season is from September through to end of January (and often beyond).

The wind in January, when I run the clinic, is 18-25 knots (4.7 – 5.7 weather). At the right hand end of the bay, waves bend in around a point and roll up a sandy shore. They are clean, smooth, usually about waist to head high and ever so friendly. With the wind blowing side to side-offshore, it’s ideal for learning down-the-line riding; and with the waves being so well spaced, the jumping is epic. 200m downwind of the point is classic wave-free free-riding."

Minimum Standard
Waterstarting and planing in straps and harness on a sub 120 ltr board. Confident swimming in, around and under breaking waves.

Here Peter's review on the facilities and tips for travel to Jericoacoara:

Ponta da Pedra Pousada, Jericoacoara
We will be staying at the Pousada Ponta da Pedra right next to the windsurfing centre.  It is simple accommodation but with a fantastic beach front location. There are other options of staying in higher grade pousadas and hotels, a short walk way, but the group tends to sail together and stay together. The package is BB and rooms are air-conditioned. Lunch can be taken at the centre. Wireless is available at the centre next door. More >

What else to do?
It sounds basic but actually it has all the luxuries – smart hotels, cosy pousadas (B and Bs), electricity, running water and Internet. It’s popular with Brazilians so there’s a thriving beach culture. For non-windsurfing partners it’s a joyous place to chill or party – and there’s a bewildering choice of shops, bars and restaurants. Eating out is delicious and amazing value. It's a great place to learn to surf and SUP; there are SUP tours in the mangrove forests, beach buggy tours, endless cocktail sampling. Non windsurfing partners delight in the climate and the ambience. It’s the best place in the world to do nothing.
