Took three lessons during my recent trip. I was a bit short of time and did not make it up on the board, but the swells made it difficult for me. Francis was a patient instructor who imparted the knowledge and skill I needed to fly the kite reasonably well - I'll be back to try it again.

Laurel is a nice and skilled woman with a good staff to surround her.
Here you can get advice, lessons, gear, all you need at reasonable priices. Maybe just a bit high in comparison to Dominican Standards but it is worth it.

Right in front of Lek, teh swell is a bit more aggresive but still easy enough to start kitesurfing if you know what you are doing.

Overall the 5* is well deserved.

Laurel, keep up the good work there

I spent a week in Cabarete with a group from Washington DC. All six of us who took lessons were more than pleased by the cool vibe and professionalism of this place. Laurel, Miguel, Merijn, and company took great care of us and were patient as we tried our best to learn this challenging sport.

We also rented SUP boards two days and hung out with the rockstar himself-- Peter Pan.

Highly recommend this place for kiting lessons and SUP rentals.
