Wind, Waves and Wisdom: A Week of Adventure and Unity on the Shakti Side

Located along the Dominican Republic’s north shore, Cabarete has some of the best wind and wave conditions in the world. Kite Beach is the area’s go-to destination for kiteboarders who want to build up their boarding abilities within a Caribbean seascape of golden sand, sapphire waves and colorful kites. Platinum Sun’s friend and brand ambassador, Kiteboarding Cabarete, has announced an adventurous retreat to do just that and more. 

Yoga, Kite, Eat, Sleep, Repeat takes place May 25 through June 1, 2019. Designed as a girls’ getaway, you’ll focus on yoga and perfecting your kiteboarding skills while enjoying wholesome and healthy food along the beautiful sands of Kite Beach. You might even meet a few new friends along the way. 

Yoga

Let out a victorious Ujjayi, or “ocean,” breath as you awake to the sounds of the sea. Whether you’re a beginner at bending or experienced at vinyasa and chaturanga, you’ll fit right in. Two daily yoga sessions allow you to prepare, focus and relax. Wake up to beachfront sun salutations and end the evening with sunset asanas. 

Kite

The kiteboarding portion of the retreat allows you to progress from a confident beginner to intermediate and advanced levels. Sessions are two to four hours a day for six days. Two expert instructors from Dare2Fly Cabarete Kiteboarding School work with you to build on existing skills, develop new maneuvers and gain confidence. You’ll receive personalized coaching, tips and in-depth reviews from session videos. 

Just a few of the skills taught include jumping, front and back rolls, upwind progression and how to unhook. The excellent wind at Kite Beach will teach you to gauge the wind’s lulls and gusts like a pro. You’ll be boosting, carving and going from heelside to toeside in no time.

Eat

Breakfast and lunch are provided by Vitamin D Café, which is located on the same property as your accommodations at Aqualina Kite Resort. In-house menu items include gluten-free eggs Benedict, seasonal fruit bowls with homemade granola, raw zoodles with almond pesto and a variety of other organic and locally-sourced items. Dinner is not provided, but it will be organized for the group each night. Arrangements can be made for allergies and special food requirements. 

Sleep

Aqualina Kite Resort sits right on the suntanned sand of Kite Beach. Open and airy rooms have private patios, balconies or terraces with gorgeous views of the swimming pool or beach. Shared and private rooms are available. Amenities include air conditioning, mini fridges, beach chairs, beach towels and Wi-Fi. Lockers for gear storage are available at Dare2Fly Kiteboarding School.
