Escape to Kite Club Cabarete - Kitesurfing in Dom Rep
Duration: Half Day
The small beach town of Cabarete, located on the Dominican Republic’s northern coast, is renowned for its excellent water sport facilities and a vast range of outdoor activities for families. It is also famously known as the windsurfing and kitesurfing capital due to its excellent surf and consistent winds all year round. This excursion will enable you to get in on the action with Kite Club Cabarete, one of the most professional Kite schools in Cabarete, as you venture out onto the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean for a kite surfing lesson.
Cabarete is a small village that has been built up around water sports over the years and is still largely untouched by mass tourism. Further up the coast, you will find unspoilt areas that have been completely undeveloped. Cabarete is world famous for its excellent windsurfing and kitesurfing conditions, which are amongst the best in the world. Combining constant trade winds, varied conditions, beautiful sandy beaches and lush tropical surroundings, it’s easy to see why this area is so popular with both professionals and tourists looking for action and adventure on the Atlantic waves.
Kite Club Cabarete, situated on the famous Kite Beach, is the home of kiteboarding in the area. In fact, the very first kiteboarders to discover the beauty and conditions of Cabarete stayed in the house which is now Kite Club. Here you will meet both beginners and world class professional taking lessons and surfing the waves. There is no need to feel intimidated if you have never tried kiteboarding before. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and the IKO certified instructors will be on hand to give you all the training and advice you need to get the most out of your experience.
Once you have mastered gaining your balance on the board, enjoy the adrenaline rush as you ride the waves, using your kite and the power of the wind to propel you across the ocean. Many different riding styles have evolved over the years to suit different types of riders and conditions, including waveriding, wakestyle, freestyle, jumping and cruising. The varied styles usually require different boards and specific performance kites, but you can find something to suit your individual level of experience. Because the water is so warm, you won’t have to wear a wetsuit.
Cabarete is the ultimate Caribbean destination for learning how to kiteboard whilst having fun at the same time, and it can be practiced all year round. This is a fantastic sport for both adults and children to enjoy on a holiday in the Dominican Republic.
