Markysharky, I havent surf DR before but a few mates have.  They said there are some excellent breaks specially at that time of year but it is worth gooing lookingf away from the named spots around caberete/encentureo.

Hi,

Sosu is maybe 20 minutes from cabarete where Ali's surf camp is located.  Oubee the surf guide leaves from the camp each morning at 7 am and heads to Equentro - a great surf spot just outside cabarete.  Its good for all levels of surfers and Oubee is also an instructor who can give you the sus on the place.  There are no real breaks around Sosu suitable for beginners as they only work on a big swell - not for beginners.  Oube can be contacted at Ali' surf camp in Cabarete.  Enjoy your holiday and check out Bamboo bar for a few scoops.

Mike.
