A surf buddy of mine were looking for a great day to go surfing during our visit to Puerto Plata. We found Brandon for our excursion to some surf spots. He picked us up promptly at our resort and had coffee, fruit and locat eats. He also provided surf boards and brought us out to some surf spots. He introduced us to some locals and provides a great experience and superb hospitality with special attention to details! Also gave us a well organized welcome package that was well thought out. Thinking of flying back to go with him for few days to explore some more and catch some more surf spots. Great experience!
The surfing tour and excursion we experienced (two surfers) was excellent! Brandon attended to our board rental needs very well and chose the perfect boards for our abilities. He also chose a break for my beginner friend so there was ease of getting out to the break, safety from sea urchins and coral and told us when to go in when the conditions were changing. He also took my GoPro camera in when the wrist housing failed (came loose) so I could keep surfing. He is someone I would definitely recommend for surfing that area and I would definitely use him again.
Dominican Surf Trips is the best way to explore the coasts of the DR. If you are a lover of the ocean it is a no brainer; surfing, kite boarding, bodyboarding, body surfing, or even just seeing the different beaches will give you an unforgettable, authentic experience. The places you go no one else sees on their travels.
Brandon is passionate about the ocean, and has a personality that makes you feel like you have known him for years. Brandon is a seasoned veteran on dealing with people and anything one would need in their travels. There is so much to do in one day I suggest booking a couple days to get a REAL experience.
I had a great time learning from Brandon. He took me to some awesome surf spots on the island and made a pretty cool video from some of the surf footage. Would highly recomend taking classes and getting coached by him as it helped me out a lot. Overall the adventure was fun and i ended up making a good friend out of it.
Over the years I have been lucky to be included in the many surf tours that Brandon Sanford organized over the island. I've seen places I never dreamed existed and surfed perfect waves in uncrowned waters. Being shown around by a local is far more rewarding and relaxing. I would recommend a trip to anyone from solo soul surfers to family's to someone just wanting to try something new and be in good hands.
