Learn Kiteboarding in the “Action Sports Capital of the Caribbean”

Large arrow left

Believe me, kiteboarding is as awesome as it looks, and there’s no place better to catch the fever than in Cabarete, Dominican Republic, and no better school than Laurel Eastman Kiteboarding.

Courses will run you around $66 per hour, but the feelings of freedom and speed as you skim across the waves under kite power are priceless.

Before opening the best kiteboarding school in the Dominican Republic, Laurel was a rider on the pro-kiteboarding circuit, even being named 2002 Woman of the Year by the Kiteriders Professional World Tour and winning the 2003 North Sea Championship! And on top of being so accomplished, she’s probably the nicest person you’re ever likely to meet.

It was probably the single most awesome sporting experience I’ve ever had and I’ve already begun planning my next kiteboarding experience!
