I'm in my 50's and took lessons for the first time in my life with Dylan at Sunset Surf in November. Over the course of the couple hour lesson, me and my friends were up on boards and loving our new sport. The process Sunset Surf put together made it easy to learn, and Dylan was extremely professional, patient and... More

We were two couples surfing with Sunset surf for six straight days. We had a great time and we really liked all the instructors (Jorge, Dylan and Khaleb). We were all first time surfers so when booking we were worried it was going to be really hard, but the instructors did a great job and we were riding white water... More

We had such a great time with Dylan and his crew (Jorge and Caleb). They were really supportive and we learnt how to stand up on the board after a few waves(!). We got to try different beaches and locations and the guys taught us about Costa Rica, food and culture. It was really fun even if I got a... More

My girlfriend and I had had a 4-5 surf lessons before an intermediate lesson with sunset surf. It was a very good, the waves were larger than what we were used too so it was challenging though we both managed to ride some good waves with the great instruction. One nice thing to finish the lesson was a impromptu trip... More

Dylan at Sunset Surf Dominical is an amazing instructor. I never thought in a million years I would ever surf do to the fact that coordination has never been a friend of mine. But after one lesson with Dylan I was able to stand up and ride a wave my first time trying! Dylan is extremely patient and encouraging. The... More

Surfed with Dylan and his team for a number of days this November 2016 had a amazing time. We've taken a few surf lessons in other locations but Dylan and his team went the extra mile to explain water safety and wave mechanics. Sunset Surf also has the best teaching waves I've ever experienced; warm water, sandy bottoms, easy to... More

My first lesson was the first time I had ever surfed, and I liked it so much I went back for another lesson the following day. Josue was an excellent instructor and had me conquering much bigger waves than I would have expected to be able to ride in my first two surf experiences. It seemed like they would be... More

Words can't express our gratitude for the surf experience we had with Sunset Surf Dominical. Dylan and Josue are top notch instructors who know how to tailor the lesson to your personal needs. I learned to get more comfortable in the waves, turtle roll and even turn frontside and backside on a wave. My husband has been surfing for years,... More
