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

Every year we travel to a different surfing location in Costa Rica. Every year we have been slightly annoyed by the service / instruction / and knowledge of surfing spots with the other guides. This is the first year out of 4 that we left bragging about how incredible our surfing guide was. She was on time / extremely helpful... More

highly recommend the surf lessons at jaco beach! i was very nervous at first because my son is not the best swimmer and tends to give up when having a hard time learning something new. after an informative and graspable dry-land lesson with our instructors Jefferson & Byron, we made our way into the water with perfect waves for beginners....

The school is run by Debbie, a local Costa Rican who is passionate about surf, teaching surf, and her beautiful country. Her school offers lessons in Jaco and Dominical. Debbie is super experienced and provides great feedback. As an advanced beginner, she really helped... More

This was my first time trying to surf and I didn't expect to be able to stand up on the board during my first lesson. I was standing up after the first 3 waves, which was mostly due to the great technique Debbie taught at the beginning. The instructors gave super helpful advice throughout the lesson and they were really... More

I highly recommend Dominical Surf Lessons. Debbie and the other instructors were really wonderful. I'm a beginner surfer and not only did the instructors make sure I felt at ease and comfortable in the water, I also learned great surf technique and had a really satisfying and fun time. These surf lessons added so much to my Costa Rican experience,... More

We were a group of 8 that took several lessons with Debbie and her team in the Dominical area. We had a mix of intermediates and first timers - and everyone seemed to very much enjoy their experience. We found the instructors extremely friendly and insightful. They also had a strong knowledge of different beaches and conditions - which allowed... More
