To help with the speed cameras, we usually install some apps.Toby wrote: ↑Tue Jul 20, 2021 4:57 pmGood advice on speed cameras!
They also film red lights.
From 22:00 til 5:00 you can slowly pass them (less than 20 km/h). Recommended to not stop at night.
The cameras are indicated 200m before, and speed limits on the ground and signs on the side.
Look out for: Fiscalisacao Electronica
Don't drive on bus lane, only just before you need to turn.
Always light on, always security belt, no fone while driving...cameras everywhere!
Outside of Fortaleza, less cameras, and normally for speed.
While in Fortaleza and Cumbuco, you can move with Uber.
Always consider to sell your gear! Prices are very high in Brazil due to high import taxes...so you could easily buy a new kite back home for your used kite sold in Brazil.
And you save baggage on return.
Looks like wind season will start from tomorrow on
PS: Cauipe is PACKED. Too many lessons. Just got hit by a beginner some weeks ago. Pain for 1 week from the lines cutting my skin. Rather go up to Taiba, or on high tide to Tabuba lagoon.
we stored gear in the double cabin, when leaving gear in the car overnight or unattended. this rarely happened, given we had the gear either with us on the beach or in the hotel. given everything is sandy and wet, we found the open bed much more convenient.jorg wrote: ↑Tue Jul 20, 2021 3:59 pmThanks everyone, great info.
Do you think it would be a good idea to keep the gear in the bed of the truck? Wouldn't an SUV be a better option?

You definitely need someone with you that speaks Portuguese. If you do, then no guide needed IMO.
we had a little medical emergency (abdominal influenza) on our trip and no one at the local hospital spoke a word of English.
I recommend renting a small truck (i.e. Amarok) with 4x4.
