This year promises more of the same. As every year, Extreme Hotel and GoKite Cabarete situated on beautiful Kite Beach will play host to our amazing camp. The full service farm to table restaurant provides all the food and beverage we would ever need. Fresh doesn’t begin to describe the food. Changing and shower facilities will keep us clean and safe. The deck at Mesa Taina restaurant provides a wonderful vantage point to watch the action live, and for our photographer AP Visuals, the perfect location to set up their tripod for our video coaching sessions.
You’ll ride on the water with Kevin always in clear communication via bbTalkin two-way bluetooth headsets. Kevin and Uncharted will walk you through step by step any trick you want while explaining it in real time crystal clear in your ears from the excellent bluetooth technology. Combine the on the water live instruction with the daily video review, your skills are guaranteed to skyrocket.
One of the most enjoyed parts of every camp has been the fantastic food. With a background in fine dining, Uncharted founder Andreas believes amazing food is the best way to cap off an incredible day on the water. Whether the giant bowl of fresh calamari & shrimp at Tuva restaurant; the brilliant tuna tartar at Bliss; or the sumptuous Angus steak at Natura Cabaña, the food is exquisite, and the friendships that are made while breaking bread last beyond the days of the camp.

Strength Of Wind
July is statistically the windiest month of the year in Cabarete with average daily winds ranging around twenty plus knots. Most people ride from six 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 annual camp with Kevin. Join Uncharted Kite Sessions and Kevin Langeree this summer in Cabarete and reach your true kite boarding potential.
Do You Need Your Own Gear?
Yes. UKS will have some Slingshot & Naish 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 that teaches you the finer points of kite control. We teach looping, self launching nod landing, luff recovery, and so much more. And we use bbTalkin two way blue tooth headsets for on the water coaching so all instrcutions are clearly understood. We'll also have a flat-water specific sessions 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 Uncharted Kite Sessions and Kevin Langeree next summer in Cabarete and reach your true kite boarding potential.
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 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, as we do every 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.
