This was my first time surfing. I had a group lesson with 3 other people. Dylan, the instructor, was great at teaching concepts in a way that we could use right away. As we got out on the water, he kept introducing new concepts as we were ready to incorporate them. The group class was a good balance because it... More

Believe all the excellent reviews. Top notch instruction. 1st time ever trying to surf and caught and rode on the 7th wave. The initial meeting, dry land instruction through to the one on one time in the water made this a great experience. Paolo (Canada)

11 of us ladies from all over the US were in Dominical for an awesome yoga retreat and got an afternoon of surf lessons with Dylan and his crew. Some ladies had surfed, but most were first timers. ALL got up and loved it. Warm water, great location, "hero waves" , and great staff. Detail oriented to explain the logistics,... More

Even before i met him in person, i was feeling a special vibe and then you know it must be good. From the beginning to the end, the hospitality of Dylan and his crew was fare beyond what... More

We had a large group of varying abilities signed up for a week of lessons with Sunset Surf. Everyone in our party had a complete blast! For the people that thought they wouldn't be physically able to surf--Dylan got them riding waves! His teaching methods are excellent. He spent a fair amount of time with us on the beach as... More

Absolutely the best instruction and fun we had in Costa Rica! We had over 5 days of lessons and it was excellent. We have two kids ages 13 and 16 and they improved their surfing skills beyond my expectations. The instructors stayed in the water and taught safety, wave awareness, and provided me the "peace of mind" while my kids... More

Dylan is great, he helped my wife and I improve our abilities, he is smart and a great teacher. A must do when in dominical if you want to be a better surfer, know where to go for the best waves and just want to know local culture better. Post surfing pineapple and coconut a must post surfing exhaustion.

After some re-searching about surf camps on the west coast of costa rica we found this lovely small company with Dylan Park in the lead. If you want to feel the real Pura vida life you should definitely meet these guys! We had one of the best weeks of our lives and we felt so spoiled and grateful. It was... More
