Dylan and Joseu are fantastic teachers. Surfing is great fun but it can be also extremely challenging, both mentally and physically. They are both super professional and knowledgable yet very friendly. They know how to put you at ease (which is half the battle) and most importantly, they are super alert and intuitive. If you'd like to have a healthy... More

Sunset Surf provided an amazing surf experience for our 4 children. Our 15 year old had some experience but was apprehensive about going out beyond the white water. Dylan took her out there and instantly put her at ease. She learned a ton and had a blast. Our two 12-year olds and 10 year old had never surfed before, but... More

Teaching your kids was as much fun for us as it was for them. We are very happy that all your kids got up and surfed and learned enough to be able to surf in the white water on their own! You have a great family, the best to you and we hope to surf with you earlier in your... More

I traveled down to Dominical as a solo young woman. I was a little nervous it was my first time traveling abroad alone. Dylan had the whole thing covered, from the pick up to drop off at the airport there was nothing to worry about. He sent a taxi to pick me up at the airport, he uses a great... More

Thanks for such a great review! We do try and keep our classes small and more personalized so that our surf campers can really learn while surfing with us. Its also very important to us that all our clients feel safe when with us at all times since you are putting a lot of trust in us! More

I visited for ten days and the only thing I'd change would to stay longer! Everyone was so nice and the experience was just amazing. It's handy to know a bit of Spanish going into it but for the time I was there I went from a simple hola to ordering my food in Spanish. Also I had stayed at... More

My brother and I recently visited the Sunset Surf Camp for a graduation gift. We got to experience the 10 day surf camp. I don't have a single complaint! Dylan and Jossue are incredible teachers, plus just all around good guys! So that makes the trip that much more enjoyable. We got to spend endless hours in the water, figuring... More

I went down to Dominical for a week-long surf camp and had a great time. Here were the highlights of my experience: - The location: the waves were great and the three different beaches we surfed at were beautiful, not crowded and the water was warm. - The surf instruction: Jossue is an excellent surfer and an extremely capable and...

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

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

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
