Windy christmas for Kite Beach Cabarete

Windy, 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. For Kite and SUP Coaching, Rentals, Lessons and Tours contact me.

Wow...2 1/2 years of wind

After 2 1/2 years of solid wind we finally got some Surf and with Surf comes rain...but wow the last years were awesome kite action. Endless down winders with no threat of rain, just strong winds and clear skies...the down side was no waves, we had a drought and the wind blew our beach away. Those days are gone, the rain came and with the rain came a loto surf, big beaches and cooler temps. Now we are back in a Surf mode so look for quality winds 5 days a week with good Surf action 3-5 mornings a week. Moderate cloud cover and ample rain should continue.

Big Downwinders...things to carry

How to do a Big Downwinder...
Don´t even think about doing Big Downwinders if you don´t have a Signal Mirror, a Kite Knife, Water and Multiple Line Lengths. Lite travels...if you are out in the deep blue and the wind shuts down you can signal a long way with a tiny mirror. People often think about using a kite knife if they tangle with another kiter...the reality is you will probably use it to cut your lines if one breaks. With a kite knife, a kiter who breaks a line can easily cut, retie and get back on the water. Multiple line Lengths give you range just before take off as well as along the trip. Of course riders should have a good camel pack as well as a water bag with a credit card and a bit of cash just in case. For more on advanced kiting check out the book on  or the itunes store

24 hour wind continues for Kite Beach Cabarete

Very Early Season Tropical Depressions continue to spin South West of the Dominican Republic. This is bring Kite Beach Cabarete near 24 hour wind and a loto moisture. Huge Low Pressure Systems passing by the Kite Beach Cabarete are bringing world class surf. The Tropical Low spinning of Central and South America continues to bring in moisture North East of Kite Beach Cabarete during the night and early mornings. Trade Winds will take over and again today Late will be Great for Kiting

Windy for Kite Beach Cabarete

Near 24 hour wind keeps blowing and looks like this trend will continue because of a Tropical Low Spinning off the coast of Central and South America. This Low will effectively increase the trades as well as bring in early morning moisture. look for Late to be great for Kiting.

World class Kite Action for Kite Beach Cabarete

Wow...wind is back and skies are clear. World Class Kite Action is happening on Kite Beach Cabarete and it looks like this trend will happen for a while. The Winter Low Pressure Systems hammering North America continue to "Lift" away from Kite Beach Cabarete leaving us with clear Skies and strong winds. Furthermore there seems to be Tropical Lows Spinning to the South West of the Island. This will bring Kite Beach Cabarete more wind for more time, almost 24 hour a day wind is expected. No morning SUP sessions in ths pattern. This wind is good for HUGE Downwinders and Big Air ...let´s Ride

Good Kite and Paddle Board Action Continues for Kite Beach Cabarete

Wow...quality SUP and Kite Action continue for Kite Beach Cabarete even as the Southern US is getting hammered by snow and wind. Even Cuba is getting hit by this Big Winter Low Pressure system. Generally these big Low Pressure Systems would bring surf and kill Trade Winds...this has not been the case, Kite Beach Cabarete has had great Sunrise Surf and Quality Afternoon Kite action. It looks like the same will continue today. As the Low Pressure System approaches there will be  Southerly winds which should mix with our Easterly Trade winds towards creating quality Kite near Sunset. Look for Rain and westerly Winds to arrive on kite Beach Cabarete later this week.

Monday, February 23, 2015

Wow...continued greta SUP and Kite Beach Cabarete

Super SUP Wave Action early today with solid Kite Winds filling in throughout the day today. 

What a year it´s been for Wind and Waves on Kite Beach Cabarete. Massive Low Pressure systems which  pounded North America with Snow and Wind "lifted" away from Kite Beach Cabarete. This left us with quality surf and pumping wind as opposed to rain. For anyone who thinks this year has been rainy, they have no idea what would have happened if these Low Pressure Systems would have continued on a normal course. Thankfully they didn´t and we have had a number of Double Dip days with great Sunrise wave riding and Quality Afternoon Kite.

Super Kite and SUP action for Kite Beach Cabarete

As this next Low Pressure System moves across Florida expect Super SUP Wave action at Sunset with lite Off Shore Winds. This system is "lifting" away from Kite Beach Cabarete so the North Coast will escape a big rain. Late should be great for kiting, watch for these Off Shore  Winds to slowly shift to Trade Winds closer to Sunset. Sunday looks like another classic Double Dip day for Watermen on Kite Beach Cabarete. for more about Wind, weather and Water check out my Latest Book

Classic Clearing Wind Kite Action for Kite Beach Cabarete

Man, it´s been a good year for the Watermen on Kite Beach Cabarete. Big Storm action has produced large surf and good wind from all directions. This is a treat for Kite Beach Cabarete. Westerly Clearing Winds open up new ride areas and fun down winders...what´s better than surfing a strong wind down to a quality eatery like the EZ Bar.

These Westerly or Clearing winds rolled in heavy late last night and are holding above 20 knots. Notice on the Water Vapor Map that the storm is just passing Kite Beach Cabarete and the "Amber" Swell is hours away. For more on Kite Weather check out our latest Kite Book

Big Surf Off Shore Winds

Wow...Big Surf and a Big Off Shore wind is gonna make for a World Class Kite Day on Kite Beach Cabarete. Paddle Boarders went out at Sunrise and the action was good, but it was very apparent that today is a very rare Offshore Wind and Big Wave Kite day. Hit it early because a Huge Low Pressure System is Hitting Havana Cuba now and we are next unless our lucky streak continues and this storm lifts.

World Class Kiting Starts now...Classic Double Dip Day

World Class Kiting Starts now...Classic Double Dip Day

Perfect Double Action for Kite Beach Cabarete

Quality Big Surf rolled onto the Reefs near Kite Beach Cabarete, Winds were off shore, lite to moderate. This Combo makes for Awesome Big Wave Action and yes Wave Hights were large enough that the SUP Cup is Happening . There was wind, enough that Kiters should look for wind Late today.
Notice in the images below that:
1. The Massive Low Pressure System which brought Big Snow to Boston and Ragging Winds to Bermuda seems to be lifting away from Kite Beach Cabarete
2. 10´  World Class Paddle Boarding with Off Shore Winds

 Kiters should watch for a Wind switch from Off Shore to side Shore making for great Kiting near Sunset. Lets do it!

Monday, February 16, 2015

Kite Beach Cabarete Wind and SUP Surf

Boston got clobber with Snow, Bermuda got hammered with Wind and Surf and now the Storm is in Florida. Looks like kite Beach Cabarete will be fortunate again because this Huge Low Pressure system seems to be lifting and traveling North East before it gets to Cabarete.
This storm is moving fast so Kiters should look for strong Southerly Winds a head of the storm and Clearing Winds after the Storm passes. Again this is a Fast Moving Storm and generally fast moving storms bring wind especially on the day´s transitions (Sunrise and Sunset). So be ready. Looks like Big Wave SUP action will happen Tuesday Morning.
 Remeber that Kite Beach Cabarete has a World Class Kiteboarding Beach when it´s windy and  when there is no Wind, Kitebeach has world class paddleboarding from the Horizon to the inland Mountains.

There is always something to do on Kite Beach...Let´s go

Wow quality Wind and Surf continues for Kite Beach Cabarete

Wow...a Kite gift last nite with Westerly side off shore winds...why is this a treat?
1. Sun is at the riders back
2. Sun is not in the riders face
3. Difficult wind to learn in so not much of a crowd
4. Nice direction for wave riding
5. Easy to Blast into Cabarete for some quality chow 

Now we are in a SUP Wave pattern...look for a really good Sunset session before BIG surf rolls in manana. Winds should remain lite with little or no kite action happening

check out the Wave Map...looks like this pattern will continue for a while

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Oh Ya...quality Westerly Wind for Kite Beach Cabarete

Family action for kite Beach Cabarete

A huge Low Pressure System is Lifting away from Kite Beach Cabarete...this gives Kite Beach quality weather, family waves and glassy waters. This trend will continue through tomorrow. The sky is crystal Clear and the Moon is Setting to the West early morning so pre Dawn Sessions are ON through the Weekend.
More Swell is on the way for Thrusday evening through the weekend...this swell will last through the Weekend.
Get the action while you can because these storms could have easily brought a solid month of rain!

Monday, February 9, 2015

Wow...lucky on the Weather on Kite Beach Cabarete

- Large Glassy Sunrise SUP Surf
- Morning off shore winds
-Afternoon Trade winds
- Quality Kite Action towards Sunset
Notice in the 2nd picture How Close the Storms are coming to the Island, but fortunately they are Lifting to the North West just before they reach Kite Beach Cabarete

Sunday, February 8, 2015

Big Surf For Kite Beach Cabarete

Big Surf is in...SUP CUP is happening on Kite Beach

Glassy conditions dominated early with moderate off shore winds filling in mid morning. A large squall just came from a Trade Wind Direction. Will Big Wave SUP action continue or are there trades behind the squall?

Perfect SUP Kite Weather for Kite Beach Cabarete

Kite Beach Cabarete has been lucky this winter, we have had quality Morning Surf with Great Kite Wind coming in late...fortunately this pattern looks like it will hold through next week. Mainly because the Winter Low Pressure Systems are Lifting as they pass through Florida. This action gives Kite Beach Cabarete quality SUP and Kite conditions with out heavy weather and driving rain. Looks like this pattern will continue through next week with the next swell hitting our reef at Sunrise, Sunday Morning. Waves and Whales are here so Let´s Paddle!

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

Perfect SUP and Kite Action for Kite Beach Cabarete

Wow...Kite Beach Cabarete has been lucky that these Huge Winter Low Pressure Systems are bringing surf but are not flooding the Island with Rain. The Storms are stopping just short of kite Beach Cabarete and they are taking an Easterly track which leaves Kite Beach Cabarete in the Clear!

the result...Beautiful SUP Surf at Sunrise and late day Kite Action through Sunset

Sunday, February 1, 2015

Heavy Weather

Wow...a ho loto Rain and Surf for Kite Beach Cabarete...the next big storms look like they will shift to a more easterly track and may not soak Kite Beach Cabarete. One thing for sure is that this massive Low Pressure System ranging off the Coast of Florida will displace the Bermuda High Pressure System which produces the Trade Winds which make for consistent kiting on Kite Beach Cabarete. So does this mean that there will be no wind for Kite Beach Cabarete? No, the storms are moving fast and there is strong possibility for quality action ESPECIALLY near Sunrise and Sunset. In fact late last night a handfull of riders caught it good and the same thing happened today at Sunrise. This is why kiters should always stay in  Hotel on Kite beach!

Super Surf for Kite Beach Cabarete

Monster Low Pressure System Heading towards Kite Beach Cabarete...check out the system charging through Florida now.
Big Wave Action is always seems that NFL Super Bowl Weekend brings Classic Big Wave Action, Rain and Cool Temps. This year is no is pounding, rain is failing and the Super Parties are coming together. I know a lot of beach goers don´t care for this type of weather, but´s freaking hot in the tropics and generally flat surf so this is a time of celebration for year round residents. Cool, Rainy, Big Surf, and good parties!

Early kite Late SUP action?

Wow...the big Nasty is hear...but wait...late will be great for Paddle Boarding head high surf! Sunrise brought 25knot North Westerly Wind with head high surf...but as usual, this "clearing wind " will fade quickly  through out the day. There is a 64% chance of super SUP wave action as we near Sunset. Notice in the images below that the Swell (Amber in color) is hours away form Kite Beach Cabarete and a HUGE Low Pressure System is charging off the Coast of Florida. this means that there will be good SUP action for the next 52 hours...then we will get back into a "clearing Wind" situation with a strong possibility of another AM Kite trip to Cabarete...

Quality Surf for Kite Beach Cabarete

Slow lift...this big Low Pressure System (white n blue in color) is slowly lifting North West which gives Kite Beach Cabarete small flat waves, light rain, cloud cover and  AC like temperatures. The Swell (amber in color) is just hitting Havana now and is a day away from hitting Kite Beach Cabarete. The Swell (Amber color) seems to have more West that North in it which does not work so well for us here on Kite Beach Cabarete because Cuba, Florida and the Bahamas catch or block most of the swell moving West to East. The good news is that there should be a nice swell Thursday Morning with lite let´s paddle Kite Beach Cabarete

Monday, January 26, 2015

Storm on the Horizon for Kite Beach Cabarete
