The wind is back here on kitebeach, Cabarete, and it is for sure. People that started on 12meters are now powered up on 9meters and 7meters, it’s just crazy. But of course, we love it, after a few days with absolutely no wind at all and blue sky everyone is out. The water is crowdes as always, new tricks are in motion for the upcoming contest in July. Couple of kites in the palm trees are not to awoid when the wind kicks off like this.
Right now some people are coming off the water, tired from hours of kiting in this strong amazing wind! So now I don’t see any reason for anyone to not make Cabarete, Kitebeach as the next beach to fly their kites on.
At the Extreme hotel we are a good group now, and even if it’s no wind we all play volleyball, talk about kiting, go swimming and keep the mood up even if the wind doesn’t show up, something that is not normal for this time of year. So now it’s again time for the famous local “Presidente” beer and high five for another awesome day of kitesurfing.
Until next time, plan the trip down here. It’s hot, it’s windy.. it’s just perfect!
Well, I have been so lazy with the kiting since I got this amazing job. But today was the day, and since I’m allready really done with the lessons, last year, it was amazing to get a good feel of it again. Kiting is life! This day have been perfect. The guys have been kiting until sundown and the weather have been awesome. Just love it! I’m hooked. So spending my happy tuesday at my favorite bar in Cabarete, Lax, working and drinking a well deserved glass of wine. Cheers, and let’s hope for a similar day tomorrow.
It’s sun and it’s hot and the wind will show up in a while I’m sure. People are waiting, hanging out, playing with trainer kites and just relaxing before the Cabarete-wind show up and blow us away. The Cosmic kite school and shop are cleaning up the beach and making the place ready for the fun to begin. Last night we attended to karaoke, but the rumors about the wind being back made us all take it easy…. So let’s go and have some fun! Cheers.
So, since last time it have been sunny some days and some days not that sunny, but it’s no problem, it’s still paradise. The heat is getting higher and higher, the humidity is getting to maz soon. But I really don’t complain, cause I hear back in Norway its one of the coldest summers in a long time. So I am happy and loving it. The last three days it haven’t been any wind, so all the restless people in the hotel and the Cosmic kite school and shop have been going crazy. Me and Scott then decided to get everyone to play volleyball, beach frisbee and jumping the trampoline. We have been such a great group here, and the atmosphere is still great. And when it’s windy, we all jump out there. And at night we have barbeques and arabian nights and then we hit the awesome nightlife of Cabarete bay.
Let’s grab a beer and lie down in the beanbags, and I will give you updates about the great life in Cabarete - KiteBeach.
Finally, the good weather and the good wind have hit us here on the north-coast of this paradise island! It’s finally how we want it and more and more people are arriving this amazing place. Looks like the summer will be pretty nice. Me, Amanda and Debb, the Extreme hotel girls are keeping up the party mood and events for the customers here. Nothing new have happened yet, we are still just hanging around and doing what the life here is all about, beeing muy muy tranquilo. (In english, beeing really calm, chilling). Until next time, do some kiting and plan the trip to paradise.
