Junior was an amazing instructor. He's the second I had and so incredibly good. He was very patient with me, pointed out exactly what I did wrong, and pointed out when I improved. He makes you feel good about your progress and helps you find more!

I went from being scared of the kite to loving the sport and being able to kite around completely on my own. I took 4 days of lessons (12hrs total)
I would highly recommend him. I'll be sending my friends his way when they visit Kite Beach.

Learning a new sport of any type can be challenging. Finding a place to learn can be even more daunting. I can tell you as a life ling athlete, now in middle 40’s, to take on a new sport, ruled by wind & water, I was not sure what to expect. Our experience with Richard, Gabriel, Agusto & Junior was so good, we are bringing our you g daughter back in 2 months to learn from them! Their process, patience, and methodology was spot on. More importantly, they made it fun, listened and it felt like being part of a team versus taught. And this is a tough sport, unlike most. You can not go wrong with this group. Can’t wait to be back!

First time to Dominican, first time to Cabarete and first time for Kitesurfing. They got me to ride within 7 hours! Junior is very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging and Richard is just so nice and helpful and he went above and beyond his way to help you. I enjoyed every minute of it and will def consider bringing friends and family to come visit again!

I am a first time Kite surfer who was travelling to Cabarete solo to take lessons. I came in October, when the wind is normally less consistent, but we were able to work around the changing conditions and had an amazing time. The GoKite School service is unparalleled. Richard picked me up from my hotel in the early afternoon when the wind was enough to begin kiting. He brought several kites & boards to the beach everyday so that we were prepared for any weather. Richard is extremely professional and is a great communicator - it was easy to plan our days even with the changing conditions of the wind. (Richard noted that October is usually the worst wind conditions for kiting, but we got lucky!)

Junior was an amazing teacher, who I would highly recommend to others looking to learn Kite for the first time. He is patient and dedicated to the success of his students. He is always positive & encouraging, which helps you to shake-off any mistakes and focus on improving and enjoying the process! He gave great feedback & challenged me to improve everyday. I really enjoyed my beginner training with Junior and would recommend him to others!

Richard, Junior, and Pedro (who supervised me after my lessons were over) make a great team, and are all very kind people who are focused on you having a great time.

GoKite is an amazing school to learn kite. Junior, Pedro and Richard are excellent instructors, with a lot of patience and knowledge. They have lessons and supervision rates, which is excellent for couples at different skills level. I was new to kite and it took me only 3 lessons to drag and waterstart! Their personalized attention stands out with respect to other school. The trip they give to punta rucia is totally recommended. The place is amazing to see and to learn kite.

Great experience overall. We hope to see GoKite the next time we go to Cabarete.

This was my second time visiting Gokite in Cabarete. The last time was in 2010. I would describe myself as an experienced beginner. I found Radek to be a very professional and competent instructor with an assuring focus on safety. Gokite is a well stocked outfit with equipment in excellent condition. They use Slingshot kites which I found easy to fly and relaunch. Overall, I had a very positive experience, but for the weather. During my 6 day visit we had two rainy days, two windy days and two calm days. Richard was very helpful both prior to visiting and while I was in Cabarete. He was always in touch with me about conditions and when it might be the best time to have a lesson. His prices are very reasonable and he was good about not trying to oversell a package deal that would not have been obtainable given the weather conditions. If you have the luxury of flexibility, take Gokite’s recommendation of keeping an eye on the weather and book your visit at the last minute when the wind is sufficient, greater than 15 knots, and there is minimal rain in the forecast.

I booked my lessons on the recommendation of a friend and what an outstanding experience it was. First, instruction is one-on-one and you have the same instructor over multiple days. Over 4 days, the instructor took me through each step - from safety to flying the kite to riding - in a way that was not intimidating and really got me excited. Richard and his team of instructors and supervisors will definitely be seeing me again (and again).

If you want to learn - this is the place to do it !!!

This is my second time taking lessons here. It’s a well run school and Richard the owner is very knowledgeable with knowledgeable instructors and good equipment. They also do supervision for more experienced liters. Really nice people and world class instruction. Radik was my instructor and he was awesome and really focused on safety. Highly recommend!
