You can check out the weather conditions for yourself on the wind forecast for the Dominican Republic. This might inspire you to take your kiting to the next level by trying a hydrofoil – a big wing under a sort of surfboard, added to your kite quiver, which gives you a whole new speed. Only for advanced riders, trying a kitefoil will challenge you and make you feel new sensations.
