Event description


Cabarete, Dominican Republic

July 8th, 2017

Join us for the 9th Annual Butterfly Effect event on the north-east coast of the Dominican Republic! We invite everyone to come out for the week to enjoy water sports, meet new and old friends, surf, get fit, and explore! The non-competitive, water sport event for women, originally from Hawai'i, will take place on July 8th in Cabarete. The day will be filled with a SUP session for all levels, beach clean up with the community, downwinder for advanced kitesurfers and windsurfers, and a fundraising dinner party for the DREAM Project in the evening. The watersport action is just for the ladies but men are invited to participate in the land activities and dinner party! The Butterfly Effect strives to promote women in watersports, inspire others to follow their passions, build community through a positive and sustainable event, and give back to local charities.
