“Amazing fun, friendly and knowledgable staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013 via mobile

We've been coming to Cabarete for three years and thanks to the LEK team, I'm hooked on kiteboarding. The staff is always smiling ready to teach, help and provide advice. You couldn't ask for a better team of instructors. Can't wait for next year, it will be time for the kids to start lessons.

“Very professional school and people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2012

This year we already visited Cabarete in april and again in november. One of our most favorite places to stay is the Hotel and Spa Resort Millennium.

Right in front of the hotel is LEK, Laurel Eastman kiteboarding. Quite obvious that if you are interested or already into kiteboarding you visit their school and shop.

Just like in april, the staff is very professional and helpfull. Just too bad there wasnt any wind, till the day we left ;-)

I just like it there, if you are around, pay them a visit, they will answer all your questions. Want to take on some lessons, don't be afraid they will guide you through it in every language if needed.

Need gear , you can get the BEST kitesurf material and some other goodies here :-)

You can start there as a 5 year old or even an old man like me ;-)

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012

We visited the school during the Easter holiday. The beach was jumping with activity. Laurel and her crew were helpful with all things beyond an obviously very professional group of instructors situated in a beautiful location. Her advice about Cabarete and the surrounding neighborhood was invaluable. It's a great place to hang out even if you not a very good kiter.
