We’d like to take this opportunity to update you with what has been going on at Swell. Winter is over, and we had a fantastic time, lots of happy clients, good waves for all; from mellow beginner waves to double overhead barrels for the advanced surfers.
Now summer is almost here, and that means the kite surfers will be happy. As many of you know, Cabarete is one of the top spots in the world for kitesurfing. Ideal learning conditions for beginners, means progress is made quickly and in a safe manner. For advanced kiteboarders Cabarete has everything from flat water to waves.
Staff changes at Swell Surf Camp.
Romy, who was with Swell for the last year, has unfortunately left Swell 2 weeks ago, her smile and enthusiasm is missed.
It was long Romy’s plan to go an infect Canada with her smile, she got her work / travel visa so she’ll be wearing a wetsuit soon on Canada’s west coast, where she is going to continue to be an awesome surf instructor.
Charlie is still with Swell for a few more weeks, before he too will go and explore more of the (surfing) world. We wish him all the best in his travels.
Swell is a surf camp, so we need good surf instructors; Ed is the latest addition to team Swell. A qualified ISA level 2 surf coach from England. He has lots of teaching experience, and is an allround nice guy.
Paloma ( from Chile, like Haudy) is going to be joining Swell Surfcamp in 2 weeks as a surf instructor / surf photographer. Paloma takes awesome surf shots, so if you want to have you pic taken by her, join us this summer.
We hope to see you soon

Spring has begun and we at Swell Surf Camp already get a lot of inquiries and bookings in for the summer.
Maybe it’s because we got mentions on a lot of external / independent websites for offering awesome summer surf camp holidays.
Needless to say we are very happy when we get a mention in the media, another thing to say is that we never pay for media coverage or let anyone have a free stay in return for a write up. These reviews of Swell Surf Camp are genuine.
What’s going on in Cabarete?
Winter has provided us with lots of top quality surf days at Playa Encuentro, and the kite surfers have also been happy days with plenty of windy afternoons. With summer coming up: if you have been wanting to learn kitesurfing, the next few months is the time to come over to Cabarete for a kite surfing lessons / course. Steady trade winds in the afternoon will be a steady fixture all the way until the end of August for kiteboarding
Want to learn to surf? Summer months provide excellent learning conditions for beginners with waves in the waist to chest high range.
Did we mention the Yoga Surf Camp?
Need more activities? have a look at the active adventure holiday page.
We hope to see you in Cabarete, the action sport’s capital of the Caribbean this summer.
For those interested in learning to kitesurf on their caribbean, here’s a good starter guide

Position: Surf instructors
Where: Cabarete, Dominican republic
Swell has set whole new standards in accommodation and guest experience of surf camps.
Our place has a unique vibe and we have great clients, mostly professional people, who stay with us. The work can be 7 days a week when we are really busy but we have 3 coaches full time and normally between 6 and 12 people taking lessons at any one time. Our surf coaches have quite an easy run compared to European surf schools, though work starts early (6.30am) it is done by lunchtime. Then we like our coaches to socialise and take part in other fun activities with the guests. If you read our Trip Advisor reviews, you will get a sense of how important the staff mixing with the clients is to the overall success of Swell.
We provide accommodation and daily breakfast + 4 dinners (eating out in Cabarete costs just a few dollars for other meals). Salary will vary dependent on skills offered and experience. Spanish is not essential but is an advantage.
