Kiteboarding in Cabarete – Richard Flindall Video

Kiteboarders from all over the world call Cabarete, Dominican Republic their home for several months during the year. Fact is, since 2006 have had over 300 days of kiteable wind per year. Technically, “kiteable wind” is anything over 11 knots and in 2013 we had an amazing 340 days of kiteable wind, thanks to La Niña. So far, 2014 has been amazing and “season” isn’t even here yet (June-August). You can find a ton of information about the wind history here on the Kite Excite website.

Robinson Hilario – iBlue Video

Dominican Rider Robinson Hilario is a Kite Beach, Cabarete local who has been doing pretty well in the 2014 PKRA World Tour. Hilario placed second at the seasons first event in Panama, but didn’t fare as well in the second event in Daklha, Morocco. Although he made it to the main event, he was bumped out in his second heat of the singles by Alex Neto and then in the doubles by Mario Rodwald. That being said, he is still ranked fifth in the world as the next PKRA event in France approaches.

PKRA Not Coming to Cabarete for 2014

We were all stoked to see Cabarete on the PKRA Tour schedule for 2014. Although there was never a formal announcement, there was definitely a page on PKRA website with a date and a listed event coordinator at some point. I think most of us noticed that Cabarete was on the schedule while was watching the PKRA live feed from Panama, where hometown rider, Robinson Hilario came in second place.
