I'm somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate surfer. I have some bad habits and can be difficult to coach. I was told I should go see Andrew and Jeanine if I really wanted to take my surfing to the next level and I couldn't be more thankful that I did. First they evaluated everything from my style and comfort... More

I headed over to Dominical towards the end of September for 2 weeks with my bro, Jeanine and Andrew sorted everything from taxi's and surfing, to quad biking and where to get the best smoothie. Jeanine and Andrew are great teachers and you can see their passion for the surf and the ocean oozing out of them. I thoroughly enjoyed... More

Me and my bro spent 2 weeks in Dominical and Andrew and Jeanine from Dominical Waverider were so good to us! We had 6 surf lessons spread out over the days - we were up standing on lesson 2 and 'outside' the waves after that. The lessons were fun but also taught us absolutely everything we needed to know about... More

We went to Dominical to visit some friends and met with Jeanine while working out. My daughters which are 9 and 12 are... More

I don't even know where to begin... I was looking for an activity for my 13 year old son and I that was in Dominical, as I wanted to visit this little town, and get out of the hustle and bustle of Quepos and Miguel Antonio. A quick search of Tripadvisor led me to a few surf camps in the... More

Jeanine and her husband provided excellent service. They gave us great advice! We actually delayed surfing a day or two due to strong conditions. They valued our safety and experience more than just selling surf trips. I would highly recommend using Dominical Waverider! I felt very safe knowing that our guide Andrew was a lifeguard as well. He really helped... More

I booked a lesson with Jeanine for two of my sons and myself on our last afternoon in Costa Rica, and it was a real highlight of our week. Andrew and Jeanine are great teachers, and better people. I would have enjoyed just spending two hours hanging out on the beach with them, but am so glad we got out... More

We arranged with Jeanine for lessons for our 6 and 8 year olds. She teamed up with Flaco to give 2 days of lessons, but the kids were up and surfing almost right away. They had a great time and Jeanine and Flaco were very good about making sure the experience was safe and that they kids rode the appropriate... More

My wife and I, and her brother recently took a trip to Dominical for a vacation getaway. I reached out to a few surf camps before the trip to get a feel for what options were out there. Jeanine was the most responsive and just gave me an overall great vibe. Once we arrived I met her and Andrew at... More
