Dominican Republic is an independent nation on the island of Hispaniola, second biggest island in the Caribbean, between the island of Puerto Rico and Cuba, part of the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region, sharing to the western third part of the Hispaniola island with the republic of Haiti, making Hispaniola one of two Caribbean islands are shared by two different countries. The Dominican Republic is surrounded in a third by water, having to the north the Atlantic ocean and to the south the Caribbean sea.
Surfing in the Dominican Republic: the best waves season at the north coast of the Dominican Republic is in the WINTER from November to April, with waves created by cold front, and in the SUMMER – the small season – from June to August, with waves created by wind swell. This could also be the time to surf at the island’s south or Caribbean coast, near the city Santo Domingo and also near the border with Haiti. Any little disturbance in the Caribbean Sea, helped a bit by the trade winds, will produce fun waves getting overhead and full on at times. Also, summer is good to mix up for wind sports activities, followed by the HURACANE SEASSON from August to October that can bring larger storm swells around the DR coast. The water temperature is always tropical, in the winter it can get a bit fresh, but no wet suit is needed.
