As part of my business trip to the DR, I decided to got to Cabarete based on tripadvisor review of Fun Trips Kiteboarding, I'm glad I followed other users reviews. I was not impressed with the town and the hotel (Kaoba is fine but quite rough) but once I went to the beach my trip started picking up and I had a great weekend. Andrea is a great teacher, professional, knowledgeable, patient and reassuring and his great sense of humor contributed to the whole experience. We started with some basic but important theory and safety instructions(about 20 minutes) and we proceeded to kite management from the shore. I was a complete beginner, but thanks to Andrea's very clear and simple explanation, I felt safe enough to relax and learn much faster than I usually do. On my first day, I was able to have a lot of fun body dragging and learning the basics. I was very impressed on my second day when Andrea gave me classes even though he had sore throat and very low voice, because he knew I had limited time in Cabarete. He could have easily assigned another teacher, but I would not have felt as comfortable. Andrea paid special attention to my safety and physical conditions, he recommended ending classes when I got tired and gave me useful tips and correction throughout the weekend. He correctly assessed when the rain was coming (and going) as well as wind and waves currents to keep me safe. I had a great time in Cabarete and would recommend Fun Trips kiteboarding to anyone who wants to learn this sport!
