The Kite Lounge is right smack in the middle of two fantastic downwinders. You can either start or finish right out front. We can arrange to either pick you up or drop you off, and for comfort, we can send an instructor with you as a guide.

labocaLA BOCA: It`s a 15 min drive to LA BOCA (the mouth), where the Yasica River meets the sea. The fresh water is refreshing and shallow. The kiting area is approx. 200 x 60 m of perfectly flat water, with a fallen tree in the middle that serves as an obsticle for those with the skills. Before heading out to the ocean, you can refresh yourself at the small Dominican beach-bar. Thenyou can surf the beach break until you hit Cabarete Bay. After ripping along the top of the bay cruise back home to kitebeach, where a cold Presidente is wating for you at the Extreme bar. Distace of about 12km, intermediate skil minimum, usually 2-3 hour ride.

encuentroENCUENTRO: Ride the waves from right outfront and go downwind to El Encuentro, the top surf break in the Dominican Republic. Depending upon the season, waves break from 2 ft to 12 feet. If you aren’t comfortable with the waves, an easier route can be safely kited between the reefs and the sand beach. One you arrive at El Encuentro, you quickly realize that THIS IS WORLD CLASS KITESURFING. The wind here is typically diagonally side-shore from the right and the waves break approx. 150-300 ft from the beach. Family or friends can take the shuttle which picks you up, and watch the action from the beach in the shadow of the mangroves. Distance of 10km, intermediate skill, apprx 1.5 hour.
