I went to Costa Rica with my family(ages 49,19,17,12,9). Let me start by saying Dylan is amazing! We originally took surf lessons with another surf shop and it was good and we wanted to go again but they were booked up so we searched around and found Dylan! He makes sure we are safe first by teaching us surfer etiquette.... More

Sunset Surf has it going on! The crew really know how to instruct beginners and convert to intermediate surfers in one day. Dominical and the nearby beaches are truly paradise! The Ticos are Pura Vida, and if their culture could rub off on the rest of the world, what a great place the world would be! Keep up the good... More

Two of us had a great visit with lessons from Dylan and Jossue. Very professional, excellent instruction, flexible with our needs (both over 50). MAVI hotel was perfect for us. Great location, wonderful hosts, tasty breakfasts, refreshing pool, no TV (thank you!). I highly recommend them!

We signed up for one lesson and ended up taking three. Our first beginner white-water lesson was with another place that couldn't fit us in for an intermediate and we found Dylan and his crew this way. Comparatively, we actually learned more from Dylan. He leads in a dynamic stretch before hitting the waves and explains in more detail. His... More

Sunset Surf Dominical is professional, timely, friendly, informative and inspirational! If we had questions, they were answered! If we were scared, they motivated us and made us feel safe!
