Surfed with Dylan and his team for a number of days this November 2016 had a amazing time. We've taken a few surf lessons in other locations but Dylan and his team went the extra mile to explain water safety and wave mechanics. Sunset Surf also has the best teaching waves I've ever experienced; warm water, sandy bottoms, easy to... More

My first lesson was the first time I had ever surfed, and I liked it so much I went back for another lesson the following day. Josue was an excellent instructor and had me conquering much bigger waves than I would have expected to be able to ride in my first two surf experiences. It seemed like they would be... More

I learned a lot and still had the chance to share some nice chats on the water about surfing, Costa Rica and pura vida and also to meet Dylans beautiful wife and... More

Words can't express our gratitude for the surf experience we had with Sunset Surf Dominical. Dylan and Josue are top notch instructors who know how to tailor the lesson to your personal needs. I learned to get more comfortable in the waves, turtle roll and even turn frontside and backside on a wave. My husband has been surfing for years,... More

We had another wonderful experience in Costa Rica with Sunset Surf. This is my second time working with Sunset Surf and Dylan and crew are the best.

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
