We arrived on Sat afternoon and there... More

Great and patient instructors. They will not waste your money and will wait until the wind is right for you to learn the best.

I had a great instructor (Sergio), a committed team at LEK, all with a sense of humor, and the amazing Cabarete town and, of course incomparable waters and wind! The Millenium Hotel is a perfect place to stay....right where LEK is.

First time in Cabarete and I totally needed a home base. I rented a locker and paid a little extra for daily "V.I.P." (20.00/ day) Assistance. Although there are people on the beach to help you launch, it's nice to have someone dedicated to make sure you get out and in quickly. Maxson was that person. I had two problems... More

The staff is always very friendly and helpful here. I initially came years ago when I was still learning to kiteboard and have returned year after year because they make your visit amazing. They genuinely care about you and if you have any equipment issues they are there to help.
