  • I could not more highly recommend Dominical Surf School. From the very beginning, the team was very responsive and communicative in the planning phase. I did my surf lesson with Debbie, and she is just the absolute best. She assessed my ability and tailored her instruction to where I was at. She was encouraging, kind and pushed me to be a better surfer. Debbie honestly cares about her clients, going out to dinner with us, making suggestions for activities in and around Dominical, and making suggestions about the safest beaches to surf at even on days when I was not doing a lesson with her. If you are looking for a multi-day surf camp or just a day lesson, you should 100% go here.
  • Amazing Surf School. We did the 1 week surf camp and had a blast! Debbie is a great instructor. She had us up on the waves very quickly. She is also very safety conscious and always concerned that you are going at a pace that you are comfortable with. She goes the extra mile to make sure you really enjoy your whole experience during your week in Dominical. She is very accommodating and will make sure you have the best week possible. Her camp includes tours of the area, a great 1 hour professional message, Spanish lesson and more. We highly recommend her surf camp!
  • This was one of my overall favorite parts of my Costa Rica experience! No trip to this part of the country is complete without it. The instructor was patient and helpful and instilled in me a new-found love of surfing. Thanks to his careful and concise training, I was able to discover abilities I didn't know I had! This school is worth every penny and I recommend it to anyone who, like me, is in love with the ocean and the Uvita lifestyle!
  • Debbie Zec is a fantastic surf instructor and she runs her business well. I found it easy to email with her (she even helped me find a place to stay and a flight!) and while I was in town, we kept in touch via messaging. Debbie cares so much about her students and makes sure that they have a good experience in the water. I am an intermediate surfer and she helped me improve a lot in just a few days. I also saw her teach beginners and wished I had learned from her years ago!! I cannot recommend her enough. And, her other instructors were also professional and able.
  • We had a really good time in Dominical and the surf lessons were great! Very nice e-mail contact with the owner, professional instructor with very clear explanation and once in the water we were already standing at the first wave! Good care, nice snack in the break and shirts included.
