Top 3 kitesurfing spots?
Spot I prefer by far, has hot water, constant wind and waves. The spots I know, these conditions are in Cabarete, my land, Dominican Republic. And of course, the rest of the surroundings are ideal for water sports and especially for Kite with waves.
Another idyllic spot for kite surfing is Tarifa, Valdevaqueros Beach is my favorite. You look around and see dunes, green mountains and Africa across the sea; It is gorgeous while the wind is perfect for strapless freestyle practice.
Finally I remember a lot of fun in Dakhla in Morocco, where the waves are still in my mind. Pure perfection for kiteboarding.
