Cabarete, On the North Coast of the Dominican Republic ( where we are) is widely considered one of the best wingsurfing / wingfoiling destinations in the world. Year-round you can find ideal wind for learning to wingfoil, although some months have better statistics than other.
Mid September to Mid October is hit or miss, since that is hurricane season. Meaning hurricanes travel well north or well south of the DR, but this can change the wind pattern for a while.
The most ideal wingfoiling conditions for learning to wingfoil ar between the months of May and August. Where the tradewinds blow steady between mid-day and 6 o’clock every day. The water in Cabarete bay is also mostly flat in those months which makes progress on your wing foiling holiday quick and fun.
For Advanced wingfoilers, the months between November and April are great months because the waves on the reef at Cabarete make for an ideal play ground with a wing and a foil. Gently, long rolling waves make for long foiling rides. The reef is deep enough not to affect the lenght of the foil.

  • Think of Swell as the anti-surf camp. There’s plenty of surfing, of course, but the similarities to other surf camps end there. For starters, the rooms are stylish — more boutique surf retreat than reggae-loving surfer digs. Then there are the legendary breakfasts (omelets, pancakes and crepes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and fruit bowls). Structured surf lessons take place each morning, with an instructor alongside you and the head surf coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer learn to surf tips between riding waves. If you are serious about learning to surf, then Swell should be on top of your destination list. Highly recommended!

    Designed with the discerning surfer in mind, Swell is far from a crash pad. The spare clean lines, plush bedding, modern photographs and funky furniture say ‘boutique surf retreat’ but the pool, ping-pong and foosball tables and social vibe suggest otherwise. A huge wood communal table is the center of the hanging-out action, after all the surfing is done. Highly recommended!
