New for 2021, 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 Kevin 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 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.
Personal expenses, local gratuities, personal video, airport transfer and airfare.
To get to Cabarete there are several different flight options.
The best option is Puerto Plata (POP). It is a smaller airport, but there are daily flights from Miami, New York and Europe.
The second best option is Santiago (STI). STI is a large city and has more flight options. It is a 90 minute taxi and flat rate of $100 USD. It is a very common option.
Third option is Juan Bosch (AZS) in Nagua. It is a 2.5 hour drive and a flat rate of $150. Not as many flight options as STI.
Final option is the capital Santo Domingo (SDQ). At 6 million people, they have many direct global arrivals. It is a 3.5/4 hour drive and a $250 flat rate. You literally cross the entire country from south to north.
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
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.

Yes. UKS will have some Slingshot & Reedin 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.
