We were on a honeymoon with my wife in Aug 2010 and both were standing on boards after 4 lessons with instructors. Everybody there were very friendly and equipment was pretty good. I studied with Miguel, and my wife was studied with Greg - they both are very careful and professional instructors, nice guys and it was really easy to learn kiteing with them! The coast there is also pretty good - stable wind and not very high waves, so I would reccoment this place to everybody who wants to learn how to kite in Dominican Republic.

Spent a week down at LEK and was extremely impressed with absolutely everything!! I decided to pay for the VIP service and it is well worth it. There is something nice about showing up when the wind turns on and already having your kite set up and ready to be launched. and when you are done at the end of the day not having to worry about putting it away!! I also had a friend come down to learn she took lessons with Joanna and progressed extremely fast. We were both blown away with the professionalism and knowledge of the entire staff. I will definitely be back very soon and would recommend LEK to anyone of any skill level.

LEK is hands down the best kiteboarding school on Cabarete beach. LEK students become independent kiteboarders quickly and safely, and advanced students take their skills to an entirely new level. Whether you want to pick up the fundamentals of kiteboarding, refine your kiteboarding performance, or learn some cool new tricks, LEK has the kiteboarding lesson for you.

LEK is also a socially responsible business that goes above and beyond to give back to the local community of Cabarete. Laurel is very passionate about education, the environment and empowering young women and girls.

The LEK staff is warm, friendly and fun. Truly great people and a great atmosphere!
