I had taken a surfing lesson from another school in CR, and it did not come close to the instruction I received with Sunset! My instructor, Jossue, was knowledgeable, patient, encouraging and really just an overall nice guy (very easy on the eyes too..). He showed me a technique for standing up that had me riding waves from the moment... More

It really makes me happy as an owner to hear such a great review about one of our employee's. Surfing should be fun to learn and you should never feel rushed so were glad to hear you felt comfortable and that you didn't end up with any bruising :) Please let us know when you will be back so we...

My family of four recently took two surf lessons with these guys and all of us (including our 7 & 9-year-olds) were catching waves and standing up 30 mins into our first lesson! I grew up in a surfing family but never mastered the standing up part. Jossue was with us both days & taught us all a very simple,... More

My children (boy age 11 and girl age 9) and I surfed with Sunset Surf last week in Dominical and Dominicalito. Dylan and Jossue were very attentive, patient and fun and did a great job teaching us how to surf and how to stay safe in the water. Both of my children said that surfing was the most fun they...

Our family went on the beginning surf tour. We had a wonderful time. The instructors were very patient with the boys. Jose even got the nervous 10 year old out in the surf and up on the board in no time. We could hear the 6 year laughing on every wave he stood up on. The school provided an instructor... More

It was our first surf lesson and we felt we made a lot of progress. Dylan is a great instructor and provides you with fresh fruits and water after the lesson.

Dylan was excellent with my family of four young children. He improved the surfing of my older children and got my 2 five year olds surfing right away. Nothing says it better than when a 5 year says - my favorite thing is surfing, Dylan caused this to happen. I have had surf lessons elsewhere before, but none were even... More

Dylan and all his crew at Sunset Surf were fantastic from patiently helping this old fella rekindle his surfing to helping kids to organizing waterfall trips, horse riding, canyoning, surf kayaking, ocean kayaking, zip lining.... the best, and we will be back!

We review lots of Surf tour operators every year in Costa Rica and have yet to find anyone in the Southern region that provides better or even equal service. From the very beginning you can tell these guys know their stuff. Doesn't matter if you are 6 or 70 years old, Dylan Park will get you up surfing. We strongly... More

I was able to spend four days surfing with Dylan and Raymond and I’m hooked for life. These guys are great. They are professional and knowledgeable and still very fun and friendly. They know how to surf, and even more importantly they know how to TEACH surfing. Two days I was with just one or two other new surfers and... More
