Cabarete Kite Festival in Dominican Republic

By June 23, 2019Event, Kitesurfing, News

The Cabarete Kite Festival, sponsored in part by Millennium Resort & Spa will be held from July 22 – 28, 2019

A strong showing of international competitors is expected to participate in the event, with talented riders from all around the world – ranging from World Champions to hard-hitting local rippers, and some promising newcomers in the sport.

“Cabarete has a long, proud history of hosting world-class kite-boarding events and the steady, thermal trade winds are a constant feature of this iconic kiting location. Additionally, one of the most notable things Cabarete is known for is its pool of formidable talent”, declares SailWorld in their post-event coverage of this event. “This is one of the true kite-boarding hotspots, churning out top-notch freestyle riders who make it their mission to take down visiting big name pros out on the water whenever an event rolls into town.” We couldn’t agree more.
