The No Work Team Surf-shop Cabarete is providing the Wind & Wave report since 9 years and offers the full service of surf school since 10 years and a Kite school at Bozo Beach since 4 years. The surf school “Encuentro Surf action” has moved from “Coco Pipe” directly to the main spot in front of Encuentro’s right break and we are working together with the surf school Buena Onda and Ali’s surf camp . Here we can provide you still the same good service fro lessons and even a bigger pool for rental (over 35 boards). You can find all type and sizes of boards for all conditions and levels. Our Kite school Big Air Cabarete moved back to the old place right beside the Hotel Viva Tangerine and the new Viva Palace where our clients can use the Restaurant, Bar and pool service. Info and reservation for our schools are possible at No Work Team, Café Pitu or directly at the Kite school down at Bozo Beach.

Feedback
Windsurfing and Kite boarding
After some days lacking winds at the beginning of August the winds started blowing well last Thursday and conditions got better day by day. We saw some nice days with strong winds and even the waves got better over the weekend. Cabarete offered best conditions for windsurfing and Kite boarding.
Surfing and Body boarding.
The swells were down at the beginning of last week, but started growing on Thursday and the surf was nice in the early morning before the wind started blowing. Cabarete offered nice conditions for beginners and long boarding and since the weekend also some short board action in 3-4 ft waves was possible.

Situation
The trade winds are working well until Thursday, but than the winds get disturbed by 2 tropical waves which are passing our region. They are still far and it is not sure how they develop, but it looks like that the winds are not working well from Friday through Sunday. But the situation can change radically if one of these depressions turns to hurricane strength. The swells are supposed to roll from East in the 3-4 ft range until Saturday. There is no bigger swells expected out of this storms until now and waves are even supposed to go down on Sunday. But also this forecast can change fast when we get some tropical storms.

Outlook for Sunday and Monday
The trade winds are not working well and the forecast is very difficult, because we don’t know how these Tropical waves are going to develop or disappear. Wind forecast is better for Monday, but situation can change totally. The swells are supposed to go down on Sunday and should grow slightly on Monday, but also here the prediction is very difficult and situation could change radically.
