Playa Alicia turns on

Day 11: After a couple days of super small push, a nice ENE swell pumped into the Sosua area and the Lopez Brothers were in search for skim with size. Early in the morning, the brothers skimmed Playa Chiquita with a tide that was a bit low for the swell. After an hour, they decided to check Sosua's jem, Playa Alicia. Her gorgeous shoulder high wedging peaks left the boys in awe. . . Super steep wraps and liners were plentiful . . . . . . .

DR Adventure

Day 5: The Lopez Brothers are back at Playa Chiquita where the waves are good once again. A few siders were pushing though but the peaky backside wraps and frontside lines had the boys attention throughout the session.

DR: Playa Alicia

Day 4: The East swell picks up along with the wind leaving the Lopez Bro's wondering what across the street looks like. Playa Alicia was small and the wind was wrapping offshore. Beautiful wraps and wedgy A-frames were traded off among the brothers til sundown.

The Dominican

Day 3: In search of new waves, The Lopez Bro's came across lots of potential on a beach tucked inside of the gated community of Perla Marina. Armando Merker, tour-guide, translator and amigo made it all happen with local knowledge and hook-ups. Muchas Gracias Armando :) !
