Cabarete, Surf Lessons
Surf Lessons in Cabarete with 321 Take off
On our trip to Cabarete in the Dominican Republic we decided to try something new on a beautiful and sunny day in Cabarete. The sun was shining, the breezes were balmy and our hang-overs were mild. We had quite a few Presidentes (and Presidente Lights), vodka, Jack and Cokes during our local pub crawl in the town of Cabarete.
Cabarete is known as the kite boarding capital in the Caribbean. We definitely are not experts so we decided to start small. We were going to learn how to surf first.
Our instructor Marcus was a good speaker. Located in Encuentro Beach area 321 Take Off offers the the perfect place to learn how to surf. He patiently instructed us beginners about surfing. The most important thing I remember about his lesson was to always be aware of what is going on around you-the ocean, surf, clouds, everything. He said no two days are alike so being aware of your surroundings will keep you alert and prepared.
After the orientation, Marcus took us to the practice boards. There he showed us and had us practice. This was followed by all of us getting fitted with our wet suits, and water shoes. These came in especially handy since the bottom was a little rocky. Surfing looks so easy but once you are on a board you find out about muscles you didn’t know you had. Balance is key. No easy task sometimes but its a lot of fun.
