I was thoroughly impressed with the teachers and staff at Laurel Eastman Kiteboarding. After spending some time watching instructors from other schools, I could really tell that the LEK instructors were knowledgeable and had their act together. Having never taken lessons before, I was nervous getting started, but my instructor, Jonathan, was awesome. He made sure I understood and felt comfortable executing each step of the lessons before moving on to the next. I had two days of lessons and am already planning my return trip to take more! This is definitely the place to learn! My husband already kites and it was great being able to store his gear in the lockers and the staff would help him launch and land his kite. The environment is a great place for all levels of kiteboarders.

Was here and reviewed 2 yrs ago, back for more training...this is still the place to learn or improve your skills in Cabarete. Maxine and great instructors make it all work. Go see them at the kiteboarding end of the beach, next to Millennium Resort, and you're set.

The moment I walked in the office I was faced with happy, professional staff...including Miss Eastman herself! Loved the whole experience. Great staff, great instructions and training, great equipment! So happy with my instructor Jonathan! Memories that'll last..and a new hobby with that! Now if I can ever make it back to progress even more..and that I will! Thank you!

I did not take a kite surfing lesson, but did buy 6 messenger and beach bags from the LEK shop. They are made out of used kites and so cool! Each bag is unique and some are even reversible. Great idea and design! Shop employees were very friendly too.
