Welcome back to another episode of Out of the Box, a series that follows the Duotone Team riders as the progress through the season on the GKA world tour and everything that happens outside of the box. The life on the world tour had been severely disrupted in the past years by the spread of Covid-19, the travel restrictions and the changes that have effected all of us. The GKA world tour has seen event canceled, tour stops not running and almost two seasons without a world champion crowned. This is the last tour stop for the 2021 season, and after our last episode in Tarifa, Spain, we see the world champions crowned for the end of the year in one of the world best kiteboarding locations; Brazil.
Brazil has always been a hub for kite boarding freestyle and one of the places where progressions leads the way each season, with new tricks being landed, new champions crowned and some of the worlds best conditions as you travel up the coast. The trip spanning from Cumbucco all the way north until Jericoacoara is on of kitesurfing most famous downwind trips. The 250km downwinder or drive through this epic coastline is a must visit for any keen kitesurf enthusiast.

In many ways, Brazil is one of the best kiteboarding destinations in the world in the fall, and there are endless options to explore. So sit back and tune into the third episode of Out Of The Box with the Duotone family and friends as we get a dose of adventure at the end of the 2021 competitive kiteboarding season.
