I am so happy that we decided to go with Sunset Surf for our beginner lesson. Not only is Dylan extremely knowledgeable about the sport, he's patient, he explains everything so clearly that you feel you've learnt more than just how to get on the board, and he got into the water and spent time with each and every person...

I went to Costa Rica to get away from the hectic life at home and found an incredible place to just relax and surf. I just happened to find Sunset Surf at the beginning of my stay and I was incredibly blessed to have found them. Meeting Dylan and getting to learn from Adam, one of their instructors, was an...

For our second year in a row my friend and I returned to surf with Dylan at Sunset Surf. Who knew it could actually get better, when it was so great the first time. This year we picked the surf and Spanish immersion package and it was amazing!!! The Spanish lessons were very practical and involved going into grocery stores... More

I've been in Costa Rica with 2 friends for 2 1/2 weeks, of which we spent 12 days in Dominical with Sunset Surf. Dominical is a very relaxed village with cool bars, tasty food places, very nice people, big lizards, loads of wild animals, some dogs, and perfect surf beaches! We came for the surfing part, not really experienced but... More

I just took one surf lesson with Dylan, but I learnt so much that day! We went with a group of intermediates but I was kind of (advanced) beginner. I really appreciate that he took time for me to explain again the basics and took special care for me. Also for the more advanced surfers he give very individual support... More
