What our students say


Olson Family - Utah

My family of 7 had the most amazing time surfing Dominical with Debbie and her great team of instructors for a full week of lessons. This is one of the most incredible family experiences we have ever had. Mom, dad, and kids aged 7, 10, 13, 15, and 17 were all well taken care of. The coaching was great throughout, we always felt safe, and we had loads of fun, even as first-time surfers. We felt like we were receiving the personal touch that seems to be lacking with bigger operations. 


Mattia & Francis - Switzerland

This was our first Surf Vacation and it was really great. We learn a lot in a short amount of time because they have great techniques for coaching, we improved a lot and enjoyed ourselves in the process. This experience added a whole new passion and interest to our holidays, and we cannot wait to come back! You better go surfing with Dominical Surf School! 


Dee & Jae - California

We had a blast!

Waves were great, the whole staff was amazing, accomodations were fantastic, people in Costa Rica are very kind! We loved it!

Honestly for whoever that wants to learn to surf and enjoy life, this is the place to be! 

Looking forward to our next visit!
