Brazil is hot topic during the early European winter months, it is the place to be if you want near enough guaranteed wind and often small to medium sized waves to play in. Well covered territory, one spot in Brazil is known to many as the place to visit – Jericoacoara. However, like trends in board and sail designs, what the pros do first, many of us follow. No doubt this is due to the extraordinary images and videos of paradisical surf spots, which these top riders are ‘surprisingly’ happy to explore and discover before anyone has ever set foot there, let alone rigged a windsurfer.
So where are we going with this? Well we noticed the young Swiss rider, Jeremy Pluss, recently posting images of truly new and undiscovered locations in and around Jericoacoara. We managed to grab him for some words about his trip, where he went and also a bit about his own plans for the future. Be sure to read to the last page, where there is another surprise about the talented freestyler.
About Your Trip
My trip to Brazil started pretty relaxed because my Swiss friend Loick Spicher organized most of the things, mainly because he spoke really good Portuguese and he had some good connections to find transfers and places to sleep. It was my first year in Brazil so I was really happy about this. We travelled a lot! We wanted to also find a new place where it wasn’t crowded to be able to fully focus on the training. I almost sailed everyday on small sails.
