Cabarete Lessons

Postby Nygs » Mon Mar 12, 2007 5:18 am

Does anyone have any recommendations or experiences to share about taking lessons in Cabarete?

I'll be down there all next week and would like to take some advanced lessons and hone my skills as much as possible. I have been riding for some time now and can go upwind on the snow, but I still need work on the water. In addition to being able to proficiently ride upwind I also need help with transitions, riding toeside, jumping, and wave riding. So, I'm looking for a good teacher...

Ideally, I'd also like a school where I can get IKO or PASA certified, learn on my own gear or try out different kites and boards, take a surf lesson or two (before the wind picks up), and pay for everything under some sort of package deal. Any suggestions or recommendations?

If you want more advanced lessons I would go to The Kitelounge.
http://www.kitelounge.com.

They have experienced instructors that competed as well. Just to take you that step further.
They also have a surfshop that can help you out with lessons at Encuentro, the local surfspot.

The owner of The Kitelounge is also a member here on the forum, just search on The Kitelounge.

Succes. :thumb:

Just got back from Cabarete with my buddy who is learning.

He took lessons from Kitexcite and was very happy with them. I thought they were great also. Talk to Stefan.

I don't know anything about the other schools so I can't comment on them.

Good luck! It's been windy!

Thanks for the feedback! Still haven't made up my mind though.... I might just have to figure it out when I get down there...

Any others have some feedback?
