Surf at the end of december - I am looking to go to DR the end of December. How consistent is the surf there? Do you recommend anywhere else in the caribbean or central america that time of year?
Living in the DR - Hey! I am moving to Domninican Republic in January 2007. I need a place to live. I am planning to stay for at least one year. I need an appartment close to the beach, but not in the middle of the city (Cabarete). I need a quiet place, swimming pool, internet access, one or two bed rooms, ocean wiev is prefered and it has to be cheap and clean. If any of you have information that can help me find a place like this I would wery much appreciate it.
playa bonita - hey there, i have been to republica dominicana twice and have surfed at playa encuentro. i am maybe going back to dom rep this year, but would like to check another spot. does anybody know about surfing around las terrenas? i have heard there is a beach break near playa bonito. small waves are perfectly fine, so if you think it's flat, there will probably still be something for me. any hints appreciated, thanks
tijus - if there anybody can tell me if we can surf a good wave in august in DR
Stuck in luperon - I'm going to be in luperon for a week in april, somebody gave me one of those all inclusive trips. I'm not complaining but its not my idea of traveling, i much prefer the backpack. ANYWAY, i was wondering what the surf situation is like in luperon. Is it flat? should I bring my board?

The Cabarete Scene - I was in Cabarete for 2 weeks in Feb. I think from talking to a few "local" European surfers the waves I had were ptretty typical.Encuentro is the only consistant surf spot on the Amber Coast, other spots of good quality are numerous and pretty much empty when they work, but thats a big when! During my stay playa grande and the "P" place worked once excellent as they are, they're also undeniably fickle.Forget the beach breaks, crap at best, flat the rest of the time.Encuentro about 5km from Cabarete is predominantly a right hand reef, its not shallow, heavy or intense; I was genuinely surprised at the lack of grunt - and I'm from Cornwall! The main peak was always packed by 8am, drop ins and snaking are the rule, remarkably the vibe remains mellow. There's more right hand peaks further up the beach not quite as good but a whole lot less crowded.A left hand point/reef is to the left as you look out, it peels really well, personaly I think its a better wave, it does have a shallow takeoff but after that its pretty easy. The beach here is beautiful. The other spots around Encuentro I'm sure have their days but I never saw them and I was there during peak time. The swell here was consistantly 2-4ft(shoulder- head and a half) but I do stress its not powerfull. Most days the trades pick up at 11am then thats it for the day, no evening glass offs.The Cabarete night life is great, the vendors are no problem and the hookers and playboys are entertaining and not at all threatning.Overall I'd recommend this trip to learners and intermediates who like to party but can still get up early!! For anyone who likes a bit of grunt you'll have a good holiday but the waves just don't quite cut it.Stay at Ali's if you want to meet people.Happy Surfing,Matt
