At Dominican Surf Trips we take the gamble and guesswork out of your surf travel adventure while at the same time providing the best value and services for every traveling dollar.
#somewhereinDR is our hashtag and concept of keeping our spots uncrowded and underground leaving the client with a sense of satisfaction of breaking free from the well known surf spots and discovering something new, special, and unique.
DST will bring surfers to the best, and most scenic surf spots all around the Dominican Republic. With over 15 years of surfing the DR, Brandon has intimate knowledge of breaks and when and where the best waves are, this guarantees guests the best available conditions. Trips will be custom tailored to surfers ability level.

We are based in Cabarete, on the north coast of the dominican republic, 20 minutes from puerto plata international airport (POP). Cabarete is in the center of the most surf rich and consistent area with access to many different waves and is ten minutes from Playa Encuentro, the DR’s most consistent spot. By its geographical location, cabarete provides world class waves, and also world class conditions for Kitesurfing and windsurfing. Cabarete is the center of north coast tourism, it is safe, affordable and is loaded with great restaurants, bars and modern tourism infrastructure, Cabarete also has supermarkets, and modern health care facilities.
