Water sports online store starts development

As a side project the to the Cabarete Kite Beach Webcam, I have partnered with Carib Wind Cabarete to develop an online store. Using Carib Wind Cabarete’s extensive experience in the water sports field, we will naturally be selling water sports equipment from our online store.

Though we are based in the Dominican Republic the majority of our inventory of several brands will be shipped from our warehouses in Miami. Keeping costs down and shipping to our customers in the Caribbean, the USA and around the world. The wonders of this interwebs thing! Keep an eye on for the launch dates and progress.

The initial focus will be on stand up paddle boards and accessories but over time will develop into a fully fledged water sports store.

Cabarete’s Kiteboarding 4 Kids

At the time of writing, Kiteboarding 4 Kids has raised over $21,000 for local charities. An outstanding effort for all involved.

The kiteboarding event was held in typically windy Cabarete conditions on August 19th. Over 50 competitors vied for podium places in 4 divisions. Open, Junior, Pro and Women. In a change from the previous day’s big air focus, Kiteboarding 4 Kids was a more traditional freestyle event. Handle passes, kite loops, grabs and a few big jumps were the order of the day with many locals and foreigners taking part to raise money.
