Dorothy "Dot" Bugbee-Robinson currently resides in Lavallette, New Jersey. Dot lived in Costa Rica for many years: surfing, teaching & exploring surf spots with good friends & clients. She travelled throughout Central America training and competing for surfing.


Dot returned home in Summer of 2012 to continue to teach surf lessons, surf coaching, spreading ocean awareness & education in Lavallette, NJ.



As the Summer season of 2012 winded down and Fall approaching Dot was getting ready to head back to Costa Rica. Unfortunately Super Storm Sandy hit leaving the Jersey Shore & Dot's home destroyed. She decided to stay & rebuild her home; leaving behind Costa Rica's warm escape. Her house & community is mostly rebuilt but forever changed.


Dot's husband Brian suggested taking a trip to Bali, Indonesia in 2013 once the house was rebuilt & life was somewhat back to "normal". Guess you can say when one door closes another one opens.


She has been surfing for as long as she can remember, with such a strong passion of surfing in her veins; it was clear traveling the globe was inevitable. Dot has traveled all over the United States & the world, to various places including Panama, Nicagura, Costa Rica, Bali, Java, & Lombok Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, and throughout the Caribbean.


Dot Bugbee offers a Traditional Surfing Experience with personalized lessons for all levels of surfing. She has a lifelong experience in the water and on a surfboard. She has over 15 years experience in teaching surf lessons, on both a national & international level and is qualified to teach with her certifications; CPR & ISA Certified (you can't go wrong with her professional lessons and talented crew of instructors when she can't personally teach you!).


She only teaches in a fun and safe environment and encourages all ages and levels to get involved with surfing at least once in their lives. Dot has placed nationally and internationally in surf contests. Although she loves to compete, she is the true essense of a soul-surfer. 

One of the many benefits of traveling

is immersing yourself in other peoples' cultures and

taking yourself out of your comfort zone.
