Windsurfing: Harnessing the Dominican Breeze

For those who prefer the artistry of windsurfing and a lighter gear, Cabarete’s consistent winds and spacious bay provide the perfect canvas. We will help you find your groove on a beginner’s stable board with moderate length, making the learning curve smoother. 

Paddleboarding: Serenity in Every Stroke

Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) offers a serene way to explore Cabarete’s coastal beauty. A cool activity to try by yourself or in the company of a partner or some friends. Beginners should choose a wider, stable board to build confidence on the water. Adjustable paddles ensure a comfortable height, and a leash adds a safety net to your aquatic escapades. Paddleboarding is not just a sport; it’s a delightful communion with the ocean. A great way to admire the main bay of Cabarete soaking under the sun. 

Wingfoiling: Soaring Above the Waves

Wingfoiling, a rising star in watersports, combines elements of windsurfing and kitesurfing, allowing you to glide effortlessly above the water. As a first-timer, consider starting with a larger and more stable board. We have all the necessary equipment to set you up, but once you try this ride, we cannot guarantee you won’t be addicted to the foil! Not convinced? If you are hearing about this for the first time ever, we have a collection of videos on your youtube channel to introduce you to Wingfoiling adventures with Liquid Blue.

Choosing Your Best Fit: Personal Preferences Matter

Ultimately, the best watersport for you depends on your personal preferences. If you crave the adrenaline rush of catching the wind, kiteboarding might be your calling. For those who appreciate the dance with the waves, windsurfing is an elegant choice. SUP offers a tranquil connection with the sea, while wingfoiling provides a taste of flying above the water.
