Cabarete: best kite rentals, lessons?

Postby Metaphor_ » Sat Jun 07, 2014 5:00 am

Hi guys,

I'm going kiting in Cabarete July 18-26. I'd like to leave my kite at home (I only have a 10m, and my last board got eaten...) and do a rental in Cabarete. It looks like kitecamp.com does rentals for $300 per week - is this a good rate in Cabarete?

Also, are there any particularly good schools for lessons? Schools to avoid? I can ride upwind in both directions and do turns, but waves are new to me, and I'm on my own so a bit nervous in case a kitemare happens.

LEK is great. My buddy took lessons there and they are very good. Rentals will be Best.
I think Club Mistral is also very good from watching them on the beach.
I rented a kite from them one day when I wanted to try the Dice. They rent North gear.

Hello,

My wife Joanna and me Maurice have worked in LEK for many years. I can tell these guys are the best team that you can find in Cabarete. They will help you in any way possible to make your Kite holiday perfect.

Hope this will help and say hello to Laurel, Johnathan or Ricardo from us.

If you decide to come to Asia one day then look at our new opened school in Indonesia.

Thanks,

Maurice

Kite Club is also a good choice and its directly on Kite Beach (LEK is not). But LEK is a good schoo too. Over five solid schools there. They do rentals and wind should be great. You will have a great time and learn a lot.
