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.
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 bit.
One of the great advantages of learning wingfoiling is that, unlike kitesurfing, you only need a gentle breeze for your first lessons to learn the basics on the beach and then in the water. To successfully get up & ride on foil you need around 12 knots (4 beaufort). Most months of the year we have at least a minimum of 15 to 20 days with 12 knots or more, so the chances that you can finish your 8 hour wingfoil course in 5 to 7 days are very high.

  • “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!
