coast of DR. Have you tried Costamba near Puerto Plata?) but not
Cabarete. The only problem is that all the accomodation is in Cabarete
so it is somewhat inconvenience to the kitesurfers. The local should at
least reverse 1/3 of the bay for kitesurfers instead of ONLY the last
100 m of the bay such that the kitesurfers has to (d)ride outside of the
bay for kitesurfing.
This "discrimination" of kitesurfers at existing windsurfing spots would
lead to kitesurfers creating our own resorts eventually.

to kitesurf/windsurf everyday - I kitesurfed everyday at Costamba last
summer). In the winter the chance of windsurfing is around 50% of the
time and probably 75% for kitesurfing.
