Strength Of Wind
July in Cabarete is a fantastic month to ride. Summer winds are in full effect and should be nice and strong. 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 temperature of 30°C (86°F) in the summer, Cabarete is the perfect choice for this kite camp series as the wind is extremely consistent due its thermal effect. 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 chose to make Cabarete our destination choice for our summer kite camps.
Do You Need Your Own Gear?
Yes. UKS will have some Slingshot gear for demo, but in limited quantities. Water shoes are also a good idea as we may decide to go surfing at Encuentro, or hiking the 27 water falls. If you are a beginner surfer you may need to stand on the reef. Booties are good to bring in case.
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 advanced kite-flying lesson to teach you things about kite flying that you never knew existed. We'll also have a flat-water specific session at the local oasis La Boca for practicing technical maneuvers. And we cannot fail to mention the fantastic down wind rides along the gorgeous Dominican coast. From late morning every day until after dinner you'll ride, eat and learn from some of the best riders in the world. Join world champions Moona Whyte and Jalou Langeree along side Uncharted Kite Sessions this summer in Cabarete and reach your strapless dreams.
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.
