Myself (James) and Benjamin were with Dominical Waverider for Christmas and New Year this year. Jeanine was fantastic and sorted us out with excellent boards to use. Mine was brand new and I loved using it. We had five days of lessons with Anthony who was an excellent surfer and coach. He taught me a lot and my surfing definitely improved. I had some of the best waves of my life in Dominical and I was very grateful for that. Jeanine also took some photos of us and made a video of us too on Christmas day which was great; santa hats and all. I would definitely recommend Dominical Wave Rider as a company. Thank you Dominical Wave Rider!!!

Dominical Waverider Surf School is just amazing. The lessons we took we're very good and in just a few days I improved my surfing big time. The staff was so lovely. Antoni was our teacher and we had so much fun in the water with him. He always gave you tips on what you can do better and we're to correct your form and technique. Thank you Dominical Waverider Surf School for such an awesome experience.

The instructors were very clear with instructions and extremely encouraging! I was really scared to try surfing but my husband really wanted to on our trip. I was up and riding on my third try thanks to the kindness and help of our amazing instructor. On our second day they even got us up on high tide waves. I will DEFINITELY book here again!

"Ariel was a amazing surf instructor, he really was helpful when you were scared or didnt think you could do something. He works slowly if your having a hard time and talked you through it. Overall he is very helpful, definitely helped me a lot when it came to surfing".....from my grandaughter Addy who took the lessons....she has had surf lessions twice from Dominical Waverider, at age 12 and 14 for many weeks over a couple of years when she visits us in Costa Rica. We have tried other instructors too but we feel the safest, most listened too and enjoyed the whole surf experience with Waverider! You wont go wrong using this Waveriders!!
