Dominican Republic - THE SURF

Like Puerto Rico, Barbados and the other islands of the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic gets waves all year around. The dry season is November through April and it coincides with the north swell season. The wet season from May through October is dominated by easterly trade swell and several strong hurricane swells pass by each year creating perfect conditions.
Because the Atlantic storms pushing swell to the island are usually between 1000-3000 miles away, the surf has plenty of power packed in to shorter interval waves. 

The island is rich with good setups and when the conditions come together; surfing quality waves with empty lineups is a given.  

Many waves break over coral reef and have nice paddling channels and defined take-offs while others offer up shifty wedging peaks and sand bottoms.   There are a variety of wave types along the Dominican coastline.
