   Kitesurfing in Cabarete - June 2005

 

Its always great to get away with your buddies. Several friends and I had planned a 'BWA' (boys week away) for over a year and we toyed with a bunch of different activities in a range of exotic locations. And just as before, trying to get everyone to agree on the destination was just about impossible. As a result the entire trip almost collapsed before it got off the ground, but eventually Mike, Rod and I escaped for 10 days of paradise at Cabarete in the Dominican Republic.

This stunning jewel is an off-the-charts, most-excellent, unbelievably beautiful beach on the North coast of the Dominican Republic and is one of the premier windsport destinations in the world.

Originally made famous for its amazing windsurfing and surfing,  it has recently transformed into the ultimate kitesurfing destination. We also chose our dates well to coincide with the 2005 World Kitesurfing Championships.

Mike and I were total newbies and took kitesurfing lessons for 4 days, progressing frustratingly slowly. On my last day I managed to make decent go of it before the wind died. Rod is a consummate kitesurfer shredded the local waters, making us look all the more hopeless.

After 6 days of peace and quiet, and much boy-fun, we sent for our slaves, Kim and Sheri. Needed some good help to cook and clean the great beach front apartment!! It was great to have them there although they completely cramped out style!
