Pedro spent a long time teaching us and even if we didn't all pick the technique up he was patient and passionate that his enthusiasm was infectious. Victor spent ages making sure we all stood up on our boards (even if for two of the three of us it was seconds rather than minutes!). My son is definitely a surf... More

Great surfschool run by Dominican people. Best place on the beach at the beginning of the current and great breaks. Other schools walk out to Bobo's point to go into the water. They have a great variety of boards.

My son and I just visited Bobo's place this week. Because it was the first shop on the beach we stopped there. We spoke with Victor (Bobo) and I had a good feeling about that business. My son took an about one hour lesson, $35 US. If you bring your own board the ocean it's free. It's easy to get... More

I went to DR with my sister to study surfing. It was my sister's 2nd visit to Cabarete and we had no doubt as to where to take the lessons as she had stayed at Bobo's school 2 years ago. And if we have the chance to do it again in Cabarete, be sure we will come back to this... More

I recently had the pleasure of taking 2 weeks of surfing lessons at Bobo's (never surfed before). The deciding factor in choosing Bobo's school was the fact that it was operated by a local (I fully believe in supporting locals) who has an extremely long history in that location; which speaks to his experience and his love of the sport....
