Sosua is about 15 minutes from Encuentro. Skip surfing at Sosua if you are a beginner. There's rentals at Encuentro beach or Ali's surfing camp in Cabarete renst out good boards as well.

Yes.  Bring it.  I am a beginner as well, and actually really learned to duckdive in Sosua Bay.  The water seemed deep, but the swell wasn't huge, it really jacked up as the tide came in, and any pictures you see of this wave won't do it justice.  Better left than a right.

Encuentro is not to far, maybe 20-30 pesos on a moto.  There are tons of waves ... if you are suicidal, check out the Casa Marina Hotel on a good swell.  Just East of Sosua.

With the right swell direction, it could be cool ... but according to locals, it is for bodyboarders.  It was about 6-8 feet when I saw it, breaking like pipeline, right on the beach ... I'm sure there are some rocks mixed in as well.  Huge barrels and massive closeouts.  Impressive wave, wish I had my camera, but I sponge too and would have never gone out.

Looking for surf spots in Dominican Republic ?
