I can't say enough good things about my experience! Debbie had me up on the board the first time, and over the next couple of days, she and Flaco taught me everything I needed to know to go it on my own. Her teaching skills are excellent, her enthusiasm is contagious, and even when I was no longer taking lessons,... More

Loved surfing in Dominical! Debbie is super friendly, and looks out for you. On our first day when the waters were to rough to go out, she took us out to see a waterfall instead and we stopped for lunch at a local's house (delicious, by the way). In the water, she does a great job figuring out what you... More

So we were recommended surf lessons from Debbie and all I have to say is GO WITH DEBBIE. We met up with her and received our boards. She taught us the different techniques we could use to get up and once we got in the water, she was extremely helpful with tips and a whole bunch of loud encouragement. Needless... More

Debbie was able to accommodate our last minute request for five guys who have never surfed a day in our lives. She was highly recommended by a local Costa Rican and gave us a detailed block of instructions for beginners. Debbie and her co-instructor were both very knowledgable and gave us additional advise on where to surf in Jaco after... More

My friend and I took a surf lesson with super-cool Debbie at a beach in Jaco and had the most amazing day. He had never surfed before and I have been surfing a couple times a year for the past 4 years. Debbie was able to work with him (and I even got a better idea of the basics just... More

Dominincal Surf Lessons gave us a fantastic family outing that we will cherish forever. Deb and her team took all six of us (2 adults and four kids) out into the waves and taught us how to ride them. The instruction and supprt both in and out of the water was excellent. All of the kids got up and rode... More

Only my 2nd surf trip, both in Costa Rica, but I cannot imagine a better experience with an instructor. Debbie was prompt, professional, energetic and extremely knowledgeable. She went out of her way to assure that we had good waves (location), good instruction (her personally and assistants), video of our trip, and a safe time in the water. She listened... More

My family and I went down to Dominical for a day trip to try out the surf and to check out the quaint town. We met Debbie and her instructors by the beach. They had 5 first timers (2 adults and 3 kids) up on the boards within minutes. She has a great attitude and really knows her stuff. She... More
