During easter weekend the beach is full with Dominican locals...many cannot swim!

Quiet some waves, which lead to a stronger shorebreak in the bay of Cabarete,

Lilo works at LEK and was able to save 4 people in one day who were about to drown, since the current pulled them further out to sea, making it unable for them to return.

Well done Lilo!!! :thumb:

Yeah, it takes a special heart to risk one's skin for others and special razorsharp instincts to react instantly, not to hesitate at the crucial moment. This guy is true blue. I'm in awe of him. We love you, Lilo!

well if not in balance, at least evidence of the other side. from what i have observed on the news throughout the years, stories involving tragedy or safety concerns from accidents get more traction than daily heroism so maybe there are more positive incidents. then again those incidents would probably be from helping fellow kiters or saving the no lesson ebay gear beginner
