Destination Summary

Monte Cristi

Wind is nuking most months of the year, very calm lifestyle, beautiful people and very authentic and meditative atmosphere. there's only one kite school located in the area but many people come from the city to kite. The water conditions is flat and 100-200m into the ocean there is a reef break which has great kickers for boosting and kite loops with right foot forward. the only downside of the location is that the tide can drop leaving really shallow water which is a bit tricky to get around.

There's also many fisherman with boats that organise trips to a small island Called cello arena and from there you can do a downwind back to the kite-beach.

there's many other kite activities you can do such as kiting in mangroves or doing a downwind to another town 20km away.
