Jeanine and Andrew, long time residents of our area, are fabulous trainers for kids and adults alike. They have taught numerous people from all over the world to surf. All of my foreign visitors come back raving about their time in the water with them....including my daughter. Besides making sure you have a great day out in the water, they... More

These coaches are great!!! My husband, son, and 2 friends took a 2 hour lesson and were up within the 1st hour. The safety information and coaching really made their first surfing experience great! Thank you for sending us pictures too!!! We would definitely recommend these coaches and will use them again when we return to this amazing place.

Their surfing has improved dramatically!!! Each time they go in the water with Andrew they come back excited, confident and definately with more knowledge. My youngest daughter... More

I set up surf lessons with Jeanine for my daughters age 12 and 9. She was amazing!! My girls do not have much ocean experience and she was able to teach them a lot about how to surf safely. I was so impressed with her teaching ability and wave knowledge. Both my girls say that the surfing was the favorite... More

This place was recommended by our hotel and the kids were excited to try surfing for the first time. They had a great time, the instructors were very good and patient with the kids. Highly recommended as the staff was great.

We just returned home from Dominical and miss the area very much! Jeanine and Andrew who run the school are fantastic. We set up a surf lesson for our two teenagers and the instructor was fantastic. He not only covered safety issues (riptides) but was great with the kids. Jeanine was there with chairs for myself and my husband and... More

I found the company through the Costa Rica Discount Plus card website and emailed DW. I received a prompt response and we set up a meeting place and time. I was also given helpful directions... More

My two kids, age 9 and 15, went surfing every day with Dominical Waverider Surf Camp: it was the highlight of their visit to Costa Rica. The owner, Andrew, was the captain of the Dominical Lifeguard team for the past 5 years. He is extremely professional, friendly, and safety conscious, as is all the staff we worked with. He and...
