A nice winter get away to somewhere warm and tropical is always desired for those of us who have spent this cold, brutal winter covered in snow and ice. I am fortunate enough to be heading to the Dominican Republic with 3 guys, here from Wilmington, NC and meeting a handful of others there to spend a week in the surf. Among the others is Ben Bourgeois, a good friend of mine who for the last couple of weeks I have been building 5 boards for the trip! All custom SUP and surf SUP models that are specially designed and built for Ben will be making the trip with us. The DR Surf Hut, as some may know it by, is where we will be staying. It’ll be a week of surf, sun, and fun…not to sound too cheesy. The spot is referred to as “The Other Caribbean” which you can read more about here www.surfline.com.
