Cabarete Kiteboarding Schools
Cabarete kiteboarding – the freedom of water flying. Kiteboarding has become a hot water sport in the past several years, perhaps because of the freedom of virtually flying while applying concepts of various other disciplines: wake boarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, skate boarding and gymnastics into a really competitive, extreme sport. Cabarete is one of the world`s top destinations for kiteboarding, due to the winds in the bay ( it ranks second in the top ten list for the sport ). Many international competitions are hosted each year, and locals have won several pro contests in Cabarete and other world destinations.
Among the top kiteboarding schools we have many pro athletes who also teach in Cabarete. This action sports requires a good level of fitness, mentally and physically. A kiteboarder harnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kite board similar to a wakeboard or a small surf board, with or without foot straps or bindings.
Among the top professional kiteboarding schools in Cabarete we have:
- Laurel Eastman
- Luciano Gonzalez
- NoWork Team
- Swell Surfcamp
- AGK Kiteboarding
- Cabarete Surf Camp
These schools have been around for a while, with excellent reputation. Check out also Big Willys Kiteboarding School at the Kite Beach hotel, by a well known trainer that opened the doors to many of today`s pro kiters.
Recently, events such as the Mai-Tai competition has drawn a lot of attention to this fabulous town, also the Master of the Ocean ( the most complete water sports competition in the world ).
