The best flat water kiting in the area takes place in the river mouth 100m from our Pousada on the beach of Atins. The beautiful clean flat water of the lagoon along with the steady and strong wind create ideal conditions for kitesurfing. Due to the shallow water it is perfect for kitesurfers of all levels.
If you want to go exploring the Lençóis Maranhenses we can organise you a kitesurfing specific trip to the natural wonders of the National Park.
The Lençóis Maranhenses National Park consists of hundreds of large, white sweeping sand dunes. It looks like your typical desert, but with hundreds and hundreds of colourful lagoons sprinkled between them. Located just outside the Amazon Basin the region is subject to a regular rainy season. This regular rain fall causes amazingly beautiful lagoons of flat water to form in the valleys between the sand dunes. The lagoons come in stunning colours of blue, grey and even black.
Due to a layer of impermeable rock lying just beneath the sand the lagoons do not dissipate and are their fullest between July and September.
Kitesurfing these lagoons is an amazing flat water kitesurfing adventure in the heart of the best kitesurfing area in Brazil. Atins Kitesurfing and the Lençóis Maranhenses have become famous among kite surfers internationally because of the natural beauty of the area, and the versatile kitesurfing conditions that are available.
These include flat water in the river mouth, the Lençóis Maranhenses, the ocean and waves and the incredible Downwinders available along the coastline.
Convento Arcádia is the perfect Atins Kitesurf Guest House to use as your base while enjoying the amazing Kitesurfing the Lençóis Maranhenses has to offer or just exploring the area.
