Cabarete's morning breezes and stiff afternoon winds have made it the world capital of windsurfing and kiteboarding. March and April are the blowiest months, but wind enthusiasts fill the wide bays here almost year-round. Summertime is the competition season: The Kiteboarding World Cup has been held here for the past four years in June—the same month as the World Cup Windsurfing Competition. And the annual Cabarete Race Week, held in June or July, brings the best amateur competitors.
