It's always nice to return to LEK and see all the familiar faces. As usual, everyone took good care of us. My 13 and 15 year old kids are riding with confidence, and that's because of the great team at LEK! See you next year!

The LEK school is incredibly well-run and organized, with a super staff who will go above and beyond to help you have an amazing experience. I saw many repeat visitors who came to use the school's lockers, as well as various people like myself taking lessons. They sell gear, cool repurposed kite bags and cold beer for the end of... More

Laurel Eastman and her staff are very friendly and helpful. Not only do they provide a friendly atmosphere, but their staff is helpful from helping launching/landing, storage, rental and lessons. Their facilities are also relaxing with a restroom, water, viewing chairs and items you may have forgotten (beer!). I'll absolutely return.

My husband and I are beginners and we're taking classes. The experience was perfect, easy, flexible, and fun. The wind was a bit difficult due to a storm so playing it by ear was important. The equipment seemed good-though is no expert. We keep the same teacher and he was very attentive and patient.

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

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!

I spent a month in Cabarete and rented a locker from LEK. This made it much more convenient as I did not have to drag my gear back and forth from the condo.
