The Cabarete Classic was first held in 2006 with the goal of keeping the spirit of windsurfing alive in Cabarete and to introduce a new generation of windsurfers to fellow competitors from around the world. Over the past three years, through reuniting friends and attracting both international and local upcoming and top windsurfers, the Cabarete Classic has attracted over 70 competitors, half of which come from outside the country.
