These guys are the best! Our teacher Jose was super knowledgeable, patient and an all around great guy. He had us standing up and riding waves in no time. If you’re looking to take surf lessons in Dominical go see the guys, they’ll take great care of you.

Instructors were amazing and gave really practical steps & coaching to get up on the board. I have never surfed before and I was able to get surfing in less than 1 hour!

Such a fun experience, I genuinely didn’t want to get out of the water!! The staff was so warm and welcoming, and we had the pleasure of having Jose as our instructor & Martina as our photographer! Would highly recommend this for beginners, I’ll be back :)

Dominical Surf School was an excellent choice to get advance lessons for my two children who are just beginning to compete in Surf Competitions. Spencer and Atrea gave instruction in the surf while taping the session. In between "heats" the video was reviewed and the kids were given pointers to work on in the next "heat". Lots of lessons learned. Great experience.
