My husband and I took 2hrs private with Dominical surf lessons two days in a row. We had surf before and wanted to work on new skills. Debbie was actually REALLY helpful right from the start. Quick and helpful with email. We didn't actually took lessons from her, we surfed with two of her instructors, both of them were FANTASTIC.... More

Surfing with Debbie was truly the best. She and her other instructors knew all of the techniques and were very helpful. My dad, sister and I were all surfing within the first half hour. All of the instructors knew English very well so communicating was very easy. I would recommend lessons from Dominical to everyone of all ages.

We are so happy to have met Debbie and taken surf lessons from her. She's very knowledgeable and makes the whole experience so easy and enjoyable, we all were able to ride green waves on our second day of lessons! She makes sure to take you to beaches with the right waves according to your experience level, and she is... More

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
