Thank you, sunset surf!!! We had the best time ever with you. We had a pretty tough start arriving with one day delay from Germany, but Dylan was very compassionate and made up for it immediately by calling us just upon arrival to invite us for spontaneous afternoon surf including the beautiful sunset in Dominical. We knew immediately that we... More

We loved Sunset surf lessons and the instructors were fun and knowledgeable...Dominical and Dominicalito with a waterfall in between. Owners were an amazing young family that were happy to help with all our surf needs. Pura Vida!

Those expectations were certainly met and exceeded. I have surfed before, so had a few areas that I wanted to focus on. Dylan, Flaco, & Caleb... More

Excellent surf lessons with focus on safety and skills. Skilled and easy-going instructor (Jorge/Flaco) who customized his lessons to our needs. We took the intro and the advanced lessons. Highly recommended!

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 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
