looking for place to stay and kite close. Thanks for the advise !!! Looks like the wind is better in turks than cabarete. How about long bay.

There are several places to stay on Long Bay, the most popular kiting spot on Provo. Or you can stay at any number of resorts on Grace Bay and if the wind has enough north in it you can kite there too. My wife and I like Royal West Indies resort and I rent a car and drive the 8 minutes to Long Bay to kite. I don't think its any windier than Cabarete where waves are much more accessible.

Long Bay is awesome. Flat shallow warm water. There are quite a few villas that you can rent that are beachfront. Some of them are totally set up for kite boarders...air compressors and tethers for self launch. Message me for more details.

Just got back from an EPIC photo shoot we did in the Turks 7 Caicos last week. We had a great time.
You have lots of places to stay but the best thing will be to get in touch with Kite Provo so they can help you with the accommodations, Kite adventures and so on.... They are the ones who took care of us but I am sure you can find other schools that will help you. But the best place to stay and kite is on Long Bay, but because of the photo shoot, we had to travel to different places on the island but hard to get. Here are some pictures so you get an idea.

Usually Cabarete DR has more wind then the Turks & Caicos plus you get better waves. But some how we lucked out because before we came they had no wind at all. I was there for 2 weeks and it was blowing every day 18 to 25 mph. Then when I left last week it was still blowing. So maybe I did bring the wind to the island.
Enjoy the Turks.

Enjoy the Turks.
So you confirmed what I saw in the forecasts when I left, I was there for two weeks staying on LB too, I had to go home the day you showed up with all the wind. Had a few super gusty afternoons the last two days there but leading up to that I was sure glad I had my LW kite!

You Dimitri, you hit the timing bang on!

You see that Jeff? Everytime someone shows up with 5 or more EPIC kites the wind turns on....
