After many years of trying to coordinate calendars, Uncharted is beyond excited to finally welcome the godfather of strapless kitesurfing, legend Mitu Monteiro, to the beautiful sunny north coast of the Dominican Republic.
This June 26th to July 1st, 2023 Mitu and Uncharted will be holding a 5 day strapless kite camp for only 6 guests in and around Cabarete, exploring all the best local kite spots. It will be a mix of varied riding conditions from beach break, to outer reef, to the amazing waves of Encuentro. This is the first time Mitu has done a camp in the crystal Dominican waters, and we can’t wait to show him, and you, the best of the island.
As always, everything is included in this fantastic Uncharted Kite Sessions experience. Uncharted has a beautiful home in Uncharted Villas on the best property and accommodations on Kite Beach.

All meals and beverages, including an incredible breakfast, are included in the camp. The food is sumptuous, catered daily from our private chef who creates an incredible menu to satiate all our starving kiters during the trip.
We know that no two riders are the same, and every kiter has specific needs based on their riding level. Even though this is a ‘kite camp’ with multiple riders, each guest receives custom coaching to their individual skills and strapless goals. Everyday we have video review for each rider with incredible footage provided to us by our videographer AP Visuals where Mitu will correct your technique, and help you understand the finer points of kiting that only a world champion knows.
We also ride with each guest one on one to insure tailor made coaching just for you. You’ll ride on the water with Mitu in clear communication via bbTalkin two-way bluetooth headsets. Mitu and Uncharted will walk you step by step through any maneuver 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.

Statistically June has consistent and strong winds, chest to shoulder high waves, and bluebird skies.

As always all meals are included as this is very much part of the experience. A lot of information gets passed at meals, and you actually get to know Fred off the water in a more relaxed environment. 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; a brilliant tuna tartar; or the sumptuous Angus steak perfectly prepared on the bbq, the food is exquisite, and the friendships that are made while breaking bread last beyond the days of the camp.

The best option is Puerto Plata (POP). It is a smaller airport, but there are daily flights from Miami, New York and Europe. It is a 30 minute taxi and flat rate of $40 USD.

Uncharted Kite Sessions has a very good driver who can pick you up and drop you at our villas safely. He can retrieve you from any airport you desire to arrive.
Strength Of Wind
June is statistically a great month for wind in Cabarete with average daily winds ranging around twenty 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 spring, 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 Mitu. Join Uncharted Kite Sessions and Mitu Monteiro this summer in Cabarete and reach your true strapless kitesurfing potential.
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 if you're a beginner surfer planning a surf morning at Encuentro.
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. We use bbTalkin two way blue tooth headsets for on the water coaching so all instructions are clearly understood.
