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

We are a family of 3 and all at different levels when it comes to surfing. Dylan and Jossue are capable of working with beginners, intermediate, and experienced surfers. They are great with kids and adults! Every minute spent with them in and out of the water was an amazing experience! They know exactly where to take you based on... More

We had a great experience with Dylan Park and Sunset Surf Dominical. Our two teen boys (avid snowboarders) registered for the beginner class one day to learn the basics and then the intermediate class two days later. Dylan is very professional and patient - answered all of our questions. He and Jossue coached the boys through a very successful surfing... 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! They provided everything for us- even some awesome sunblock homemade from Dylan's wife that works hours in the mid day sun! I personally continued lessons a couple more times and progressed... More

Ive been surfing with Dylan and his crew and they are really very profesional, patient and friendly. All beginners in the group were able to stand up many times! They take time to make you feel safe, so you can enjoy it 200%. If you want to improve your skills, Dylan can take you to a beautiful bay (with an... More

Dylan's a great teacher. Highly recommend for other old geezers wanting to learn to surf as well as young families who want to expose their kids to this great sport. Also, location, location, location! Dominical is still a neat place to learn! Thanks Dylan and family!

Whether you're looking for one-day lessons or the total package, Sunset Surf has what you need. Dylan is passionate about everything he does - and goes over the top to give you a great experience. Of course this is reflected in everyone he works with - surf instructors, excursions, accommodations...Dominical is a tight knit community where you'll feel comfortable and... More
