Extreme hotel is definitetly the most fun hotel on kitebeach in Cabarete. Not only do we have a circus school, MMA, yoga and a full service gym, but we of course have the best kiteboarding location!
Unlike any other hotel on the beach, we offer a nice big grassy area, free of obstruction where you can pump up your kite, wash it and pack it down safely without bringing home half the beach with you! This helps to keep sand out of your pump, valves and bladders, prolonging the life of your kite. With conditions ranging from flat to choppy and various sized waves breaking on the reef, kitebeach offers some of the best conditions in the world. The wind is side-onshore, usually 15-25 knots and blows consistantly from lunch time until after sunset.
In addition to kitesurfing, eXtreme Hotel also boasts some other great board sport activities. When the swell is in, we have one of the best surf breaks in the area, with waves reaching to over double overhead in height. There might be a bit of a paddle to get out to the break, but you’ll have the whole wave to yourself. Want to spice things up? eXtreme also offers tow-in surfing, using a jetski. This is for advanced riders only! In addition, Encuentro surf beach is just a five minute moto concho ride away from the hotel. Located there are many surf schools and rental shops, plus the break is a little closer to shore. Be careful though! You probably want to wear water shoes to protect your feet from the fire coral and reef.
Also located on site at eXteme Hotel is a world class skateboarding halfpipe, “The Underground”. Open to the public on weekends, you can kill it with some of the Dominican’s best skaters. Don’t feel intimidated by the level of riding, we also have plenty of kids and women learning to skate here too.
Also to be found on kitebeach and soon to be availale at eXtreme Hotel are standup paddleboards (SUPs). Several locations on the beach offer rentals and some instruction. They are much longer and wide than conventional surfboards and much more stable. The use a paddle to propel yourseld out to the break, and standing on your board, you can see the sets c in earlier than when you surf, allowing you more time to set up for your ride. Kite Method also offers an eco-tour into the Cabarete Lagoon in small SUPs where you leisurely paddle around the lagoon at your own pace while taking in the local flora and fauna. IT’s very beautiful and tranquil here and protected from the wind. Make sure you wear a hat, sunscreen and bring some water with you! Afterwards, you’ll be treated to a coconut, some sugar cane and some almonds from the lagoon.
Further down the beach is Bozo Beach whereyou can find many windsurfers riding hard and their associated schools and rental shops. Most windsurfers stay in Bozo Bay, and rarely venture forth to kitebeach. This area has been one of the premeir locations for windsurfing for decades, and is the home for many competitions for both windsurfing and kiteboarding.
Wakeboarding can also be found locally here in Cabarete and is usually done on the local river where the water is always flat. If you are interested, there are local tour groups that arrange outings, or you can ask at the front desk and one of our receptionists will be happy to call and inquire about wakeboarding availability for you.
Extreme Hotel is your extreme board sports vacation destination.
