Downwinder

Downwinder Caribbean

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

La boca downwinder caribbean

La Boca Downwinder Caribbean

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 kitesurfing area is approx. 200 x 60 m of perfectly flat water, with a fallen tree in the middle that serves as an obstacle for those with the skills. Before heading out to the ocean, you can refresh yourself at the small Dominican beach-bar. After a small rest, you can surf the beach break until you hit Cabarete Bay. After ripping along the top of the bay cruise back home to kite beach, where a cold Presidente is waiting for you at the Extreme bar.

Details
Distance of about 12 km, intermediate skill minimum requirement, usually 2-3 hour kite.
Encuentro Downwinder Caribbean

Encuentro Downwinder Caribbean

Kitesurf 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. Be careful of the exit. There are some nasty bits.

Details
Distance of about 6 km, minimum skill level is intermediate, usually a 1-2 hour kitesurf
