Live Wind Conditions at Laurel Eastman Kiteboarding School in Cabarete, Dominican Republic
The most important thing you’ll need for kiteboarding lessons is WIND!
Cabarete has year round wind and warm water. Winter has waves!
The two best seasons for optimal wind conditions in Cabarete are winter (end of December through April) and summer (June through mid-September). The waves are bigger in winter. The summer is hot. The thermal effect combines with trade winds for super consistent wind and lots of days of wind.
If you come to learn kitesurfing in the “off” months (May, October, November) it helps to visit for as long as you possibly can. More days give you more chances for windy days. Also have a plan B activity like surfing at Encuentro every morning, learning Spanish, or salsa dancing.
