Spot and Surf Conditions:

There are waves all year around, but from beginning November until end of April bigger swells hit the Dominican North coast. Encuentro is the most consistent surf spot in the Caribbean and offers several different breaks for all skill levels. The surf school is located at the main peaks of Playa Encuentro. Left and right of the peaks you can find two advanced and powerful waves called la izquierda (left) and coco pipe (right). On solid 6-10ft north swells some other spots start to work really nice and you can surf on some beautiful beaches without crowds. We also offer guided surf trips to some of the best spots and happy to surf with our guest. In the summer season the surf gets more relaxed, great for beginners and intermediate surfers but sometimes big swells, caused by hurricanes far out in the ocean, create some amazing surf.


Cabarete is a well know mekka of wind & kite surfing. Cabarete offers perfect conditions to learn kite surfing or windsurfing at one of the best kite surf destinations in the world. We partner with Kiteclub located at Kitebeach to provide lessons and rentals. They use high quality and save equipment and the instructors are experienced and IKO qualified. Kitebeach is also a great place to hang out and have a bite to eat after the lessons.
