Surfing is a great watersport and when you are in the hands of true surf professionals, a very accessible sport for people of all ages. The Dominican Republic has some of the best surfing beaches of the Caribbean, and caters for surfers of all levels, from perfect beginner beaches to offshore reefs for the expert surfers. The water and air temperatures are warm year round, so leave your wetsuits at home.
At Swell surf camp, lessons are given in a structured manner using properly qualified coaches; when comparing your choices, it is very important for you to note that we are the only surf camp in the Dominican Republic that employs internationally accredited surf coaches. This means that our coaches have all completed specific training in teaching techniques, including Practical and Theory Lessons, Life Guard training and CPR/Basic First Aid, which are all part of the I.S.A. qualification. As a result, you could not be in safer hands. Having qualified coaches also means that we can teach you advanced techniques so if you are an intermediate surfer, you can also benefit from surf lessons with Swell.
Your theory lessons will be given in two stages during the week; learning how waves are formed and how to spot the best place to sit, are just two of the topics covered in these lessons.
