Anybody ever rent gear in Cabarete? My family is going in March and flying United to S.F. and American SF to DR. Each airline would charge $300 rt.

So I am planning on renting a surfboard (and maybe kites, too). I might take 1 or 2 kites in a suitcase or I might just rent kites. I can't use my "golf" bag since it exceeds the linear (L+w+h) limitations.

I have a 6-8-10-12 quiver. If I could just bring one kite, should it be the 10m? 2 kites: 8m and 12m?

Thoughts?

I went in Dec of 2017 and rented from LEK https://laureleastman.com/
They were really flexible on their rentals and only booked the time I was actually on the water at a really great rate. I brought my kites and rented boards, but I would probably not hassle with any of the equipment if I was to go again.
I was on a 9m mostly, with some time on my 11m.

I thought a golf back is exempt. So the dimensions do not matter. I would put two clubs in the bag in case they want to check on what is inside. I did this and it saved me in mexico. i had two cleveland bronze wedges in there. they zipped it up and sent me on my way no charge.

I was there in December in 2012. At the time the best rental gear could be found at LEK and Dare2Fly/Vela.

But I ended up renting a 21m flysurfer foil kite from Kitexcite which made my whole trip.

At the time:
Best Accommodations: Kitexcite
Best Food: Extreme Hotel
Best Gear Rental: Dare2Fly/Vela

And all three are adjacent to each other on kite beach so I just drifted between the establishments. Review is a bit dated so many things could be new but it gives you place to start.
