Our family of three went surfing with Debbie twice and had the time of our lives. I have tried surfing many times in different locations and never been able to stand up for more than a brief second. Without effort Debbie and her terrifically positive attitude got everyone in the family surfing in no time. We had a blast and... More

Stayed at the Mavi so choosing Sunset was an easy one (they are located on the side of the hotel). Dylan and his instructors made me feel super comfortable right away. It was like a group of buddies were picking me up, rather than some hired instructors. They took us to a break that was appropriate for our groups experience... More

We had such a great time learning to surf with Debbie and Reymond. We learned how to stand up and surf whitewater waves on the first day, which was a ton of fun. And then on our second lesson, we learned how to get on slightly bigger waves, and practiced paddling for ourselves. Debbie was very easy to work with,... More

My family of 7 had the most amazing time surfing Dominical with Debbie and her great team of instructors for a full week of lessons. This is one of the most incredible family experiences we have ever had. Mom, dad, and kids aged 7, 10, 13, 15, and 17 were all well taken care of. The coaching was great throughout,... More

We did two lessons with Debbie and her team. She is a great instructor and so are Gonza and Junior. This was our first surfing experience. They got all three of us on our feet the first day. They made sure it was fun and safe at the same time. Debbie is the sweetest person. She is very friendly, down... More

Debbie and her two instructors, Junior and Gonzalo, were all great. They spent about 15 minutes with us on the beach then got us into the surf. They worked hard and were patient with everyone in the group and really made the entire experience enjoyable. The Dominical area was great and well worth the drive down from Manuel Antonio.

My children, aged 13 and 17, took a lesson and enjoyed it immensely. Dominical was very accommodating in finding a way to support our last-minute request for a specific time. Their instructor was young and could relate perfectly to my teenagers. For their first time, both found it a rewarding lesson and successfully got up on their surfboards several times... More

Our 5 year old son had never been on a board, but was determined to learn. Luckily, we spoke to a local who recommended Debbie. She has such patience with our highly distractible little dude, and she's able to harness his crazy energy and keep him engaged. He was up on the board in no time, and he confidence has... More

I took a two hour surfing lesson from Deb while I was in Dominical. She offered excellent advice all the way around: she made a great assessment of my past experience (I had surfed when I was younger); picked a great board; spent a good amount of time on the beach talking to me about safety and strategy for getting...
