Kite Club Cabarete shared Dare2fly Cabarete Kiteboarding School's Hola From Cabarete, Dominican Republic.

Cabarete is back to normal after Irma passed us by without any destruction, no need to cancel trips. Cabarete is the place to be this winter!!

#MondayMotivation On Thursday September 7, 2017 Hurricane Irma brushed by Cabarete, Dominican Republic as a category 5 storm meaning winds exceeding 156 mph ~ 251 km/h. Luckily, we have the Mona Passage, tons of reefs, and high mountain ranges that protect us from storms like these. Two days after the storm and everything seemed to be back to normal, so we decided to take a walk from Cabarete Bay to Kite Beach and Encuentro to make sure everyone was ok. The response we got from every single person we asked, "Todo bien, gracias a Dios." Although we came out on the good end, many of our Caribbean neighbors lost everything and we are yet to see what happens in the rest of the US. Sending positive vibes to all those affected in this difficult time.
