Pablito Guzman’s Cabarete Classic, is one of the top windsurf competitions on the North Coast, attracting competitors from all over the globe. Founded by Pablito Guzman, a local professional who has competed globally and earned many national titles, this event is dedicated to improving the community and encouraging and assisting other locals to get into the sport! Originally held to keep the spirit of windsurfing alive and reuniting friends from afar to enjoy the consistent Cabarete winds, this event has come a long way since the first appearance in 2006, with more new faces participating every year! This year marked its 10th anniversary and was no exception with over 80 competitors from all over the world!
The event took place in front of Vela from the 2nd to the 4th of September offering a category for everyone such as sports class, open class, ladies, juniors, mini juniors and even a free coaching clinic with professional, Diony Guadagnino, for all participants. With the combination of the classic Cabarete winds, glorious sunshine, and Caribbean vibes, this event was another great success with everyone partying on into the night! This video by Genesis Reyes Photography captures those qualities! Enjoy and congratulations to all the athletes who took part! We can’t wait to see you all again next year!
