I had a great time learning to surf with Sunset Surf. I just wish I was able to get fully up on the board at least once! Really fun and patient instructors. Had a blast!

Excellent experience for the whole family. We felt completely safe with our 10 year old twins learning to surf with Dylan and Jossue. In addition to learning to surf, we learned about Tico culture and the local way of life. We cannot recommend Sunset Surf strongly enough. We would recommend alternate day lessons for 2 weeks if you can (rather... More

Every family says it. “One day we’re going to take that vacation that we’ll always remember and talk about for years.” Today’s that day. Sunset Surf Camp is that trip. We requested an action packed vacation and we got just what we wanted and needed. True family time filled with sunshine, zip lines, snorkeling, horseback riding, white water rafting and... More

From an insanely cold Canadian winter to the tropical paradise of Costa Rica, this vacation was definitely needed! This was our second time with Sunset Surf and we had every bit of fun and excitement as the year before. Our 6-year old son had a blast and couldn’t get enough of the waves – we felt totally at ease as... More

Among my many life dreams was to learn to surf. Growing up in the late 60's early 70's jamming out to the Beach Boys....you know I could only imagine. Fast forward to 2015 when the realization hit that it was now or never. I looked up Sunset Surf on Trip Advisor, read the reviews, booked the first session. Dylan Park... More

There are three reasons why we took Sunset Surf Dominical surfing classes: 1) Our good friend recommended them. He has lived in Dominical for 10 years and knows them well. 2) They teach local kids. It means they are patient with absolute beginners. 3) We met a couple who drove 40 minutes from Quepos because they heard Dylan’s classes are... More

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.
