Surfing Dominican Republic, welcome to Cabarete

I went to Cabarete for 10 days to finish this 2009′s year Surfing dominican republic, finish this crazy year in caribbean, what a dream icon wink Surfing Dominican Republic, welcome to Cabarete

This island is located in Caribbean, eastern two-thirds of the island of Hispaniola, between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, east of Haiti. The town of Cabarete located on Dominican Republic’s Amber Coast is recognized as one of the world’s top destinations for wind driven board sports primarily kiteboarding and windsurfing. And don’t forget the surfing, the beach break is amazing and consistent everyday. So our special guest Susi Mai took us for a your to show us Encuentro and others secrets spots.

The main surf on the north coast is situated around Puerto Plata where there are a number of easily accessible surf spots. Many are relatively uncrowded ensuring tonnes of waves. There are also surfspots on the south coast of the island but these are less consistent.

The island really is a beautiful place to visit and if you want a relaxing couple of weeks away, not spend too much money and get in some good surf then the Dominican Republic could be for you. We fell in love with this paradise, people are so warm and authentic. the food is excellent and so cheap compare other Caribbean islands. The best time for wind is definitely summer but do not worry, there is always something to do in this island.

The main surfing dominican republic spots:

  • Encuentro Main break: actually there are several peaks, this is the most consistent spot on the North coast, works with all major swell directions, hardly ever goes flat, usually when it’s flat at all other spots Encuentro will still have a waist high wave. Spot consists of several peaks: the main break a right hander with an easy channel to paddle out, another peak is ‘Bobo’s’ in front of Bobo’s surf spot, consistent and fun waves: Excellent for learning and intermediates.
  • Playa Grande: Wow, this spot remind me Dream Land in Bali. Popular with body boarders on the shore break which can be heavy. also a few good sand banks for longer rides.
  • Presiosa and el Barco: Top spots, not for beginners, tough paddle with currents, quality left and right handers in a bay in front of a head land. Needs at least a 5′ swell out of the north to start breaking.

  1. Hey mon, Why do you have to name the spots? I have been surfing and shooting around that area for more than 10 years now and never named certain breaks. Sometimes it’s best just to say Dominican and not name each spot ;)

  2. Hi Alex
    Why not ?… I have checked those spots with local surfer an they gave me them…
