Response from the owner - a year ago
Thanks for taking the time to review our kiteboarding school in Cabarete, while of course we love hearing positive reviews, we truly value critical reviews as they give us an excellent opportunity to improve our business.
Since your visit I’ve organized a dedicated rental equipment inventory, so in the future there will be plenty of equipment available for independent kiters like you.
The hourly rate for a board is actually $12 per hour, not $20 (our SUP rental is $20/hour). We do offer a two week board rental for $336 ($25 per day) and you can ride as much as you want each day. I’m so sorry for the miscommunication.
When you rent kite gear (or take lessons) at LEK there’s no upfront purchase of a non-refundable package, each day we track the amount of time you spend (in a lesson or with rental equipment) then at the end we calculate the total and apply volume discounts to your kiteboarding.
I’m very sorry we disappointed you during your Cabarete visit. We really strive to make each and every person who walks into our beach business happy and stoked on their Cabarete/Kiteboarding/LEK experience. Hopefully you’ll visit again and give us another chance in the future!
Good Winds and Safe Kiting,
