This will be followed by an all night house party where many of the latest action sports dvds will be premiered. The event will run all week and offers anyone and everyone a chance to hang out and chill with the world’s best action sports athletes. eXtreme Hotels owner Bill Lee said, “People from all over have discovered that Cabarete is one of the top adrenaline places in the world. eXtreme’s mission is to provide everything the adventure traveler needs to have the ultimate experience — great accommodations, nightlife, and access to a variety of action sports in a beautiful location,” he continued. The property is situated on one of world’s hottest kiteboarding beaches. eXtreme Cabarete offers guests 20 modern rooms and free wireless Internet only steps away from the kiteboarding action. eXtreme is home to the Caribbean’s top kiteboarding school, Kitexcite and has every amenity a kiteboarder could need including: storage lockers, air compressors, gear teching areas and on-site equipment repair. To round out the eXtreme experience, the hotel built the world’s first below ground, professional skateboard fun ramp, “Six Feet Under.” The ramp was designed by Helmut Ludwig and Hans-Peter Hutter both former pro skateboarders, renowned in Europe for their ramp building skills. In addition, eXtreme Cabarete is just minutes from a world class surf break, Encuentro Beach, home to the annual Latin Surf Classic. eXtreme also has a reef break directly in front of the hotel conveniently named, “Six Feet Over.” Scuba diving, motocross, canyoning, river rafting, mountain biking, hiking, golfing and scenic tours are also available.
