Uncharted and Camille have put together a custom coaching program designed to target each riders personal development and improvement. With our bbTalkin blue tooth headsets you’ll have Camille in your ear while out on the water giving you step by step instructions on where and how to improve, turning your weaknesses in strengths. Giving you the confidence to go out and charge in any condition.
As always Uncharted will provide the best in coaching with video coaching tools provided by Eye Fly films. Throughout the camp EyeFly Films will give us the footage that will allow you to improve every aspect of your riding and kite flying technique to help you reach your strapless goals.
Every day our small group will set out to discover and ride the best kite spots the Dominican Republic has to offer, recording all the riding on video to review daily in our video coaching. Uncharted and Camille will break down every aspect of your riding and show you on film exactly how to tweak your position to get the most out of your kite and the waves.
This is a 5 day kite camp with everything included*. From the moment you arrive in the Dominican Republic, Uncharted will organize every aspect of the trip to make sure you get the most out of our time on the water. As usual food plays an important role in all our camps. We’ll dine at the best restaurants in Cabarete insuring that we’re refuelled and recharged for the next days riding.

Strength Of Wind
March in Cabarete is a fantastic month to ride. Winter wind cycles have established themselves and the daily swell is fantastic. The winter waves are always head high or better, and the Caribbean in the winter is the perfect holiday escape from the cold. Most people ride from eight to twelve meter kites depending on weight. But as it is Mother Nature, and she is unpredictable, it is better to have a kite and not need it, than to need a kite and not have it.
Wind & Climate
With an average daytime high temperature of 29°C (82°F) in the winter, Cabarete is the perfect choice for this kite camp as the wind is consistent due its thermal effect, and the water is always a beautiful 26°C. The wind is predominantly from the east, as is the swell. Cabarete is consistently rated as one of the best kite destinations in the world for a reason. With access to excellent flat-water oases, beautiful beach breaks, and perfect barrels over the reef, it’s obvious why we choose to make Cabarete a recurring destination choice for our camps.
Do You Need Your Own Gear?
Yes. UKS will have some Slingshot gear for demo, but in limited quantities. Water shoes are always a good idea depending on the spot.
Uncharted Kite Sessions focuses on professional instruction on how to improve riding skills, but also integrates cultural immersion into our camps. We have video analysis to adjust your stance, kite and board position. We have an advance kite-flying lesson teaching you things about kite flying that you never knew existed.
From late morning every day until after dinner you'll ride, eat and learn from one of the best riders in the world.
Join Uncharted Kite Sessions and F-One Kiteboarding pro Camille Delannoy this March in Cabarete and learn how to ride waves like you’ve always dreamed of in your mind.
Day 1: Introduction, Video Session and Rider Evaluation. We hit the water right away, begin assessing your riding, and make improvements right on the water. We’ll also have a professional videographer EyeFly Films on shore for our private video session where all riders are filmed and the video is edited for coaching.
Day 2: Video review and analysis in the morning, followed by afternoon riding sessions to put what was learned in video review into practice.
Day 3: Advanced kite-flying lesson focusing on looping, pivoting, stall, inversion recovery, luff recovery, among other things.
Day 4: Flat water session in the morning to work on technical maneuvers like transitions, big airs, jibe, tack, etc. The afternoon will be a down winder from La Boca back to Playa Encuentro. Distance of approximately 15km’s.
Day 5: Video review and analysis in the morning. Riders choice for afternoon session. A majority vote will decide the activity. It can be something that has already been done, or something new like a down wind session from Las Canas back to Kite Beach; a distance of approximately 25km’s. In the afternoon we'll do a final review of the week and provide feedback for future development.
