Excellent service, great instructors. I am an experienced kiteboarder riding a twin tip boards. I took my first hydrofoil lessons at the LEK and was able to balance the board, go upwind on the short and then medium length mast. My instructor Wilder gave me a few very valable hints and that helped with my progression. The staff at LEK... More

My brother and I took kitesurfing lessons for an entire week at LEK in Cabarete at the end of February 2017. From the moment we walked into LEK to the moment we left for our hotel after the lessons, we felt at home. All staff at LEK is happy, welcoming and friendly. Santo was a great kitesurfing instructor!

The staff at LEK were friendly and very accommodating. Always willing to help whether it launching or landing your kite or helping to pack up at the... More

I decided last two days to try Kiteboarding for the first time. In two days and 3hours I managed to control kite in water. The people were helpful, mine instructor was professional and fun to learn from! After this experience, want to come back and continue what I started. Thank you for that!

LEK is my base in Cabarete and where I store my gear. While I am past the lesson stage, I wish I'd used them when I needed lessons. It's an incredibly professional outfit where the staff always seems happy to be there and helpful to its customers.

The staff and instructors are knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. They are very flexible in scheduling your lessons so that you get best possible wind conditions. If weather/wind are not conducive for all of your scheduled time you are only charged for the time you use. My instructor was fun and enthusiastic. He provided excellent instruction and got me...
