  • We rented boards and took lessons with Dominical Surf School over a month during the end of 2020. The kids and my wife (8yo daughter and 9yo son) took lessons and went from no experience to surfing...  more »
  • Great fun with a wonderful - and patient! - instructor. I've never surfed and actually stood up and "rode" the wave in four times - a great sense of accomplishment. We'll be back for sure!  more »
  • This review will just be for the surf school, not all the places (hotel, restaurant, etc) that came with the surf package. Although they were great! Dominical Surf School was a spectacular experience and it shows in their 170 Excellent and 1 "Very Good" reviews on TA. My case probably presented a special challenge, as I was a solo traveler coming to Costa Rica on just two day's notice. Debbie had no problems arranging special transport, making sure my hotel had been set up correctly, and setting my mind at ease before the trip. Come to think of it, saying the word "Debbie" around Dominical almost seemed like a secret password to special treatment - even people who didn't speak English would smile and nod when I said the magic word! Gijs was my surf instructor for all five days/lessons and we had some great times out in the ocean. He gave solid, helpful advice after each wave that really helped me to progress and see improvements from lesson to lesson and even from wave to wave. Advice is one thing, but he's also got an infectious love of the ocean that makes it easy to see why surfing is such a hypnotic sport and to begin to become a little bit entranced yourself. As part of the package (caveat: not sure if it's every package), they also offer a video and photo analysis of one of your lessons. This isn't just a chance to look cool for the folks back home (though it is!!), it's also a really helpful look at what you're doing on the waves and can help speed up your progress. Great work all around from the whole team - communicative, easygoing, fun to be around, great stuff. Would recommend to anyone.
