Sunset Surf is awesome! I just wanted to rent a board and try things on my own. I'm so glad I didn't. My first lesson was so great, I went back the next day. The sunset crew gave me great instruction, kept me safe, and ensured I caught as many waves as possible. It was the highlight of my trip.... More

Dylan is a fantastic instructor and certified internationally (the certification speaks volumes and is important to me). He and his staff at Sunset Surf, Jossue and Caleb are the best of the best in Dominical. It is a great set up for families to learn or as a solo traveler. This year was my second year with the Sunset Surf... More

Dylan and Jossue did an amazing job of explaining the important elements of surfing to our intermediate group of 3 adults and two 11 year olds. Over the course of a few lessons, they moved us to locations that were appropriate for our varying skill set. This enabled everyone to benefit from the lessons, as you were able to repeat... More

My boyfriend and I did an afternoon of surf lessons with Sunset Surf. It was awesome! We were both total beginners (no prior experience at all), and by the end of our lesson we were both getting up on the board and catching waves. Very well organized, friendly and encouraging. Highly recommended!

Me and my family of 5 took our first surf lesson with Sunset Surf. In less than an hour, every member of my family 3 teens and 2 adults were all able to stand up and ride the waves. My family is not particularly athletic or coordinated. I have to give the credit to Dylan and his team. Great job... More

I've never had so much fun traveling and surfing as I did with Dylan and Sunset Surf. He is a true professional! He handles all the logistics of getting us there and getting us geared up for the lesson. He is super easy to work with for arranging lessons, and makes sure you are in a great, comfortable hotel.

Sunset Surf Dominical, along with its owner and surf instructor Dylan Park, was the best surf experience I've ever had. I have taken surf lessons in other parts of Costa Rica, Hawaii, Brazil, L.A. & NY and Dylan is hands down the best and most organized instructor I've come across. He put safety first and I always felt completely comfortable... More
