I was there for a week surf camp and it was so much FUN!! I wish I had started surfing years ago, will be back for sure. Dylan and Jossue are great teachers and made me feel very comfortable in the water. They teach/explain how to surf very well and I got up first try :) Everything is well managed... More

I had an amazing time in Dominical and pretty much loved everything. I've surfed a number of times before and at a number of places -- but Dylan and Jossue are by far and away the best instructors I've had. Unlike the usual "teaching surfing bums" they are very meticulous and will carefully point out and correct flaws in your... More

So Fun! Wow! Dylan provides technical information, Jossue provides experience information, and they both provide FUN! Tico Time is the best, water is like none other. Great place to learn to surf, and they make sure you can catch the waves. We were a little nervous at first, but TRUST is key, from the arrangements to getting there, to the... More

I highly recommend surf camp with Dylan Park. It is not a typical tourist / resort experience, it is much better. The instructors are excellent and the Pacific coast is beautiful. You will also have the opportunity to explore waterfalls and do some hiking. Dominical is a cool little town with great food and a great yoga studio.

World class beginner teachers that show you what you need to know about safety, technic, power & reading waves. And when you are having fun they will give you encouragement, smiles and laughs whatever your level are! Jossue, Simon, Jordi & Dylan: thanks for showing us the basics of surfing, we got addicted and will continue to look for waves... More

Staying at the Sunset Surf Camp is an awesome experience. The surf instructors we worked with, Dylan and Jossue, are beyond compare. They were supportive and positive, motivating, fun and safe. They are accommodating to everyone no matter the skill level, and able to help anyone and everyone improve. No better place to learn how, or continue to surf!

I rented boards and thought... I will figure it out. My husband ended up smacking his head on the ocean floor and I just waited for the white waves to stand. My friend who is an excellent surfer told me to call Sunset Surf. Best move ever!! Safe, educational and very well spoken. Lots of people can surf... But not... More

As someone who was pretty much terrified of learning to surf, I'm so glad my husband and I decided to do a mini surf camp, including 4 days of lessons, with Sunset Surf. Not only was I more comfortable in the ocean than I've ever been just after the first day, we both had a blast, figuring out how to... More

Let's start with Dylan, he is professional and thorough. I called the a bit late evening before and he answered the phone. I explained that my husband, 62, had recently tried surfing for the first time and it was a disaster. The instructor in Puerto Viejo booked our entire party with just him. Dylan said he could and would have... More

Dylan enjoys teaching and sharing overall knowledge of surfing. Beginners would be best awarded by starting with him. He enjoys the success of his students is devoted to having them learn quickly with safety always in mind. The waves are nice and long which gives us beginners time to get up and ride.
