Mi Progreso en 3 Dias a sido Increible! Muy contento de haber tomado mis clases y haberme certificado con Kite Club en Cabarete. Mi profe, Rafa, un maestro del deporte. Me tuvo la paciencia necesaria y me dio instrucciones claves para avanzar rapidamente con mi progreso en el deporte. Lo recomiendo full!

Rafa is the best I couldn’t talked about my experience learning kite without mentioning Rafa (my instructor) I have taken kitesurfing lessons in the past but never with someone like him. Thanks to Rafa I feel much more confident about kitesurfing. Definitely worth the investment of time and money!! If you want to learn kite and have fun all at the same time then Rafa is your instructor. He has a way of making you feel comfortable trying and pushing your limits.

Such a GREAT instructor!! Rafa is definitely a very good experienced instructor! Very clear with explanations and he always managed to see what you need to improve or correct. Each tip he gave me, made me go into the water and get better. Now I can say that I can ride independent thanks to Rafa's great course! If you want to have fun while learning very fast and safe, choose Rafa!!

Great all round experience Great kite school in the perfect location on Kite Beach to catch wind. The school itself was very well run - it has all the facilities that you could need - staff are really friendly and experienced - also a top bar/restaurant on site - equipment was good quality. We were in low season (November) so wind was not so consistent but for early stage kiters is a good time as much less busy.  We arranged a call with Jon before we left home to discus all the options we had for lessons and equipment to ensure the optimal use of the time we had there - he was super helpful offering tips on how to get to the area as we were coming from the other side of the Island so great coordination making the trip much easier and valuable for us. I had a couple of 1-1 lessons with Rapha to pick up where I left off at another school in NL - great knowledge of kiting and good level of English, really easy to get along with and was extremely valuable to spend time with him to fine tune some areas to get moving on the water - moved to supervision with Kaleb who was giving some super important advice to keep the progress going. We looked at the other nearby schools/clubs and definitely believe we chose the best from what we saw/heard so big thanks to the Kite Club Cabarete team.
