Fee: 1,190.00 USD
Cabarete is the perfect location for learning how to surf waves downwind. Sailors work through a range of wind scenarios from light to heavy wind. Learn how to create power and turn it into speed, judge wave and wind angles, and learn proper sail trim, body position, and steering

Cabarete has become a premier location for remote workers. Daily practice in a variety of conditions will most certainly give you a leg-up on the competition back home.
“In the morning I work online with my team during business hours in Europe. But in the afternoon I’m enjoying great moments sailing the Atlantic. That combination makes Cabarete the perfect tropical winter destination.”
