Press Release from CBKC: Competitors from all over the world came together to join us for this great event in Cabarete. Strong winds and a good time for all. This event was highly anticipated by Cabarete, international spectators, and particpants alike. CBKC promised and delivered a great event, an exciting battle of freestyle kiteboarding.
Cabarete is revered as one of the best kite spots on the globe. It offers beautiful beaches, natural ambience and strong wind. Cabarete is a prime kite surfing, windsurfing, surfing, laser sailing and SUP destination.
Competitors battled against each other and mother nature for prizes and bragging rights. Competitors came from all over the world just to be here; South Africa, France, Estonia, Canada, Ireland, United States and of course, the Dominican Republic. Lauren and the Kite Challenge organizers opened the fundraising Friday evening, one week before main event, with a silent auction, movie screening of F-One “Antandroy” and raffles at the Carib Wind Center and Eze Bar in Cabarete. Then, closed the event on the evening of June 17th with another silent auction, more great raffles and award ceremony, at Club Ojo in Cabarete.
This event would not have been possible without the support of our international and national sponsors. To see who they are and more event information, please visit our Facebook page and help support dominicandream.org – This is an incredible organization doing loads of good here in the Dominican Republic.
This event turned out better than we could’ve ever imagined. We hope to do it again next year and bring the community together, once again to enjoy this wonderful sport.
