Dominical is a great beach to learn how to surf! The lesson on the beach was simple yet effective and we were in the water in no time. The water and fruit during the break was much needed. Highly recommended!

My 10yo daughter wanted to attempt surfing beings it was her 3rd time down and it finally sounded fun. After attempting to book with another outfit and then not returning several calls we walked down to Costa Rica surf and they were so inviting. We booked a beginner lesson later that day and her instructor Gone (that’s his name) had her up riding waves in less than an hour. The 2 students to 1 instructor made for lots of time to help and guide.
We have lesson #2 booked for Sunday after Easter church and she is already talking a intermediate lesson next week.
Thank you for making a surfer for life!

We spent 2 days in the white water and 1 in the green water with Eze and Falon. Wow. What a great experience. They were great with everyone from beginners who aren't comfortable in the water, to more seasoned surfers with some confidence. They even offered advice to the experts at Dominicalito. They were always attentive, professional and interested in teaching. The only snafu we ran into was regarding the billing (probably my fault for not explaining I already paid a deposit), but once I pointed it out to Kaitlin, she corrected the bill without hesitation. A great group of committed and engaging athletes and expert surfers. So committed in fact, that Henry stopped an out of control surfboard with his face. My wife saw it happen and was amazed that he was back at teaching in just a few moments. Although, we would suggest he try avoiding the board next time. Ezequiel and Falon, Henry, Kaitlin and Cesar, thank you for the best water experience we've ever had. Which is saying a lot since we have spent 100s of hours on the Mississippi River over the years. We could not recommend Costa Rica Surf Camp any higher. And we are looking forward to our return. Thank you all.

Thanks for your review Steve and Kris ! We are so happy that you enjoyed Dominical and our surf camp so much!
We make sure our surf students feel safe and confident which is why our small student to teacher ratio is so important! You did great as your first time on the green waves!
Keep on paddling and come back to Dominical soon! Much love from all Costa Rica Surf Camp.

My husband and son went surfing together and had a fantastic time. Our son is only 8 and he was SO successful. The teacher managed to give my husband tips and help while keeping my son surfing and safe. I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting to surf in Dominical. I just wish we had time for them to go for another lesson.
