Strong Winds made for some quality Extreme Kite Boarding…loto surf remains and looks like this swell will last through the weekend. Unfortunately there is a worthless 10 mph onshore breeze…will this hang around??? I expect it to hang around through manana and HOPEFULLY the Trade Wind pattern will return…only a 41% chance of this happening…until then no kite and crap wave riding so come Paddle Board the Lagoon with us…http://www.stormsurfing.com/cgi/display.cgi?a=natla_height
I like to direct clients to hotel rooms which have ocean front Master Bedrooms. This way you will know when the wind comes in no matter what you may be doing!
Know before you go!
Paddle Board Jungle River Tour
This SUP Tour may lead to the beach (River Mouth) depending on the wind and your paddling ability. This Paddle Boarding Tour happens on the 2 SUP Rivers. We start at an Organic Orchard and come back to the same Organic farm. This Paddle Boarding Tour comes with English Speaking Guide, Full Lesson, Fresh Fish Shore Lunch and Transportation for those staying in the Kite Beach, Cabarete area. This tour is about 3 hours and is $79usd and includes Lunch, Lesson, Guide and all gear.
More days than not Paddle Boarders get chased off the water by strong Sun and Wind…but rainy days make for good SUP action on Kite Beach Cabarete. Rarely does it get so cold at Sea Level here on Kite Beach Cabarete that we leave the water. So cloud cover and some rain make for very comfortable Paddle Boarding. Winter makes for great SUP action here on Kite Beach Cabarete, River, Lagoon and Ocean Wave riding action.
Extremely Late Season Tropical Depressions have brought most of the Caribbean 24 hour wind for weeks…looks like this trend will fade as a ho loto surf is heading towards Kite Beach Cabarete starting manana. Waves should build slowly the rest of this week peaking this weekend through next week.

Hey, most kite beaches are public and you can rig and launch which ever way you choose. A cross wind set up and launch can be done in 25 meters.
1. Lay the lines out cross Wind
2. Lay the kite on top of the lines
3. Connect the Control lines to the outside trailing edge of the kite
4. Keep the center lines under the kite connect them
5. Double check no lines are over the Control Lines and Launch
Again, most beaches are big and public so riders lay their lines down wind of the kite, they connect then walk cross wind…this method takes up about hundreds of meters. If you looking for the most efficient way to rig and launch, use the Cross Wind Set Up and Launch.

Wow…the Holiday´s have been windy on Kite Beach Cabarete, near 24 hour wind which has been sweet for kiting but strong morning Wind has shut down SUP action. It seems the reason is an Unbelievably,Inconceivable, Extremely Late Season Tropical Low sitting off shore of Panama and Columbia (again). These type Low Pressure Systems bring 24 Hour Wind and Radical Sand Migration to Kite Beach. One Sport Wind Athletes are really happy but wave riders are out of luck, there is very little Double Dipping on Kite Beach these days.
The Classic SUP Kite Double Dip Days have a 57% chance of returning Next Week
Next Week shows some promise for Quality SUP Wave Riding Action because of an approaching LOW, the Inconceivably Late Tropical Low looks like it is fading so hopefully we´ll be back to Big wave Glassy conditions early and strong Trade Winds Late.
Windy Christmas…wow, it continues to be windy on Kite Beach Cabarete mainly because of an extremely late season Tropical Low Pressure System spinning off shore of Columbia and Panama. These type Tropical Lows bring 24 wind to Kite Beach Cabarete. They also draw moisture passing to the North back onto the North Shore of the DR. This is why there are so many evening and morning showers. This trend works well for Kiters here on Kite Beach Cabarete, not so nice for SUP and Surf wave riders but really nice for SUP Touring because the cloud cover and scattered rain keep things cool.

Looks like a Wet One for Kite Beach Cabarete…A large Winter Low Pressure System has basically stalled out over the Island. There is an Extremely Late Tropical System spinning South of the Island off shore Panama and Columbia. These tropical Low Pressure Systems generally help increase the Trade Winds. Add in the Winter Low and it looks like a 46% chance that Late will be Great for kiting, a 87% chance of rain and 41% chance for quality SUP Wave Riding action in the mornings…long story short…look for a Wet and Windy Week!

Looks like quality Kite and SUP Christmas action for the North Shore, Dominican Republic. There is a large Low Pressure system charging towards the Island now, this will bring Large Surf and should disrupt the Trade Wind Flow by the end of the weekend. But wait, as inconceivable as it may seem, there is a very late season Tropical Low spinning South of the Island…generally this will increase the Trade Wind flow. Long story short, be ready to Wave Ride with Kite and SUP…for Coaching, Rentals and Tours contact me.
