I'm there! How much? and when do you want the deposit by?
Do I have to be up to a certain standard or anything?

Excellant, we'll wait to here from you.
Hicks it'll b around £2000, hopefully a bit less and Stuart that'll include flights, accommodation, car hire, guide/driver hire (it's essential at one place we go to) and food, depending on which places we choose to eat at, if people are sensible it'll bring the cost down :-)
To get the most out of the trip you must be competent at kiting down wind, it's quite a skill believe it or not, as this is mainly what people do, not saying you won't have a kiting holiday if you can't do it, but it'll make your trip spectacular if you can.

Yeh I'm sure you'll be fine but as Sarah says to get the most of the trip you will need to be able to "downwind"
It's not that hard but does sometimes take a few sessions to get the hang of it as everyone spends the first few years just trying to go "upwind"

Once you have done a few, you will want to do it every session. It's also the easiest/fun way to get to the main flat water lagoon in Cumbucu

The intention is to have some days in the lagoons and some in the ocean, the surf rarely is big there, well in fact never, but it can be heavey.

It is prob the ultimate "kitesurf" holiday!

Sorry, I think I'll need to start taking money by July/Aug, sept will end up being too late to get the accommodation we will want.

Unfortunately my cashflow has taken a blow secondary to housebuying so I'm going to have to pull out.
Bit bummed as can't make any of the trips this year but will hopefully have the chance next year.

Hi. I've been looking at this trip you have planned for a while. Looks pretty amazing! I'm trying to find something different to do this year and wondered how I can get my name down for this trip if it was possible?

Hi Tom I will add you to the list, I will need a £200 deposit at the end of May to reserve the 1st accommodation. But please keep a close eye on this thread after that as I will be asking for more money around beginning of July for further accommodation and flights.

It looks like I'm going to have to take a deposit from people within the next few weeks as I've just heard from the pousada that we stay in at the beginning and the end of the trip and he's getting booked up already! I'm just waiting to hear how much each person needs to pay.

Ok guys, I need a deposit of £55 per person please, this is for the pousada for the 1st 2 nights and the last 4. For those that haven't booked with us before give me a shout and I'll give you the bank details.

I will only need the deposits for the accommodation as you will pay the rest when we arrive at each place.

We're not staying in just one place Victoria, that's why I'm asking for deposits in separate bits. I know some of them have got wifi, not sure on all of them.

Ok, I've eventually got a final figure that I need to reserve all the accommodation. Guys, I need £132, Dave and Geoff please take off the last £60 you've paid. Girls, I need £124. I need the money by the end of the week or the pousada's will give up our reserved rooms.

This shows the flat water on the inside even flatter when the tide is further out than in this vid and the waves out the back!
