Debbie and her team went above and beyond during our one week surf camp. We were able to try several different boards and went to breaks around Dominical to make progress surfing in different conditions. Supporting her school is a good way to walk the talk in supporting local women owned businesses make it in a tough market. The coaches are top notch and Debbie herself has one several surfing medals over the past few years. The camps are AMAZING and a perfect way to have a vacation that includes surfing, massage, waterfall tours, etc. highly recommend and already planning to come back.

I signed up my wife during our visit to Dominical last year for a few beginners lessons with Dominical Surf School - and oh boy that was fun! Martina was an incredible teacher, and Debbie was really supportive with booking us and helping us navigate tide charts so we could practice as much as we could during our visit. The price for both lessons and gear rental was comfortable and totally worth it. Overall, this was the highlight of our trip to Dominical and we can't wait to visit again in a not so distant future!

While staying in Jaco, we scheduled a family surf lesson (kids age 9 and 11) with Dominical Surf School. It was absolutely the highlight of the trip for the kids. The instructors gave great instructions, going over the dry-land training quickly and getting two hesitant kids into the water quickly. The instructors were patient and attentive and gave great feedback that had everyone riding waves quickly. We have already recommended Dominical to friends who are heading to Costa Rica, and would be delighted to visit again.

We drove about 45 min one way to surfing with Dominical Surf School. The owner, Debbie was super helpful, greeted us, showed us where to park and offered suggestions of where we could have lunch and what else we could do in the area. We were extremely impressed with the staffs attention to detail when it came to safety! Also my spouse and I had 1 surf instructor working with us the entire time so by the end we were really feeling confident with all the practice and instruction! We would highly recommend Debbie and her team!
