Description: The Caribbean is one of the best kept secrets. We have it all. Hispaniola...
The Caribbean is one of the best kept secrets. We have it all. Hispaniola Island receives plenty of waves. While the best conditions for wind sports and surfing are known to be in Cabarete, we receive a lot of waves too, here in Uvero Alto. Surfing here is not really known at all, except to a few local surfers that have been surfing here alone for years... In Uvero Alto, we have the privilege of having the most varied types of waves and the best consistency in the eastern region from Punta Cana to Bavaro to Macao, we have the best conditions and waves for all levels of surfing. Throughout the whole year, our bay receives waves and has different breaks for each season and level of surfing... from shallow fast barrels and long peeling walls to our learning zone. The learning zone is where the beginner surfing lessons take place. Lessons here are ideal for the inherent safety of the spot and the whitewater waves. We, those local surfers, take pride in teaching a real surf lesson. We are three friends that have been surfing for years, some of us more than others. We are friends because we have a common thought when it comes to the ocean: we admire it, we have a passion for it and we respect it. We have surfed Uvero Alto for many years and nothing would make more sense for us than to share what we feel in the water with anyone willing to try it. The speed, the power, the rush, the feeling, the stoke, the water, the ocean; we would genuinely enjoy introducing you, to our world.

Had a wonderful experience with the school, it's lovely setting and knowledgable staff. They were very thorough, funny, friendly and helpful. We learned about land exercises to warm up, ocean topography at this particular beach, safety and technique. We had a great time. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Wishing them great success with the surf school and SUP tours.... More

This was our first time surfing. The instructors were excellent and had us up on our boards very quickly. They offered to stay to surf with us for as long as we wanted to stay out. It was a very Zen experience on a beautiful beach with a small group. The best way to get in touch with them to... More

I was uncertain how well I would do with surfing but these guys were amazing. We had a small group we had a quick lesson on the beach and then right into the water. I would recommend this place to any first timers or even experienced people. They know their stuff. Also their energy was great and were always positive.... More
