The instructor really makes your experience. Gabriel is an impressive all around guy. He is excellent at teaching surfing techniques but is also incredible at getting your mind right for the water. His passion for the ocean, surf, people, & life in general is contagious. MUST experience surfing with him!

We wanted to learn to surf while in Costa Rica, but didn't have any set plans. While my wife was shopping on the street shops in Dominical, I walked into Costa Rica Surf Camp's building to find out about taking lessons. The tide schedule meant a morning lesson to coincide with mid-tide waves. There were four of us and none... More

Everyone I met at this company was awesome. There were 2 students to 1 teacher. After 10-15 minutes of beach instruction and practice, they had us in the water. I got up on my first wave. The teachers gradually build you up from how to get the board through waves safely to how to spot waves and get the timing... More

I've always wanted to try surfing, but I'm also one of those folks who were greatly influenced as a child by the JAWS films. But c'est la vie - you only live once! We were wandering around Playa Dominical and on a whim, signed up for surf lessons for the following morning. I spent the entire night before tossing and... More

What an amazing surf experience I've had with the Costa Rica Surf Camp. Located right on the beach in the heart of Dominical. A special thank you to my surf instructor, Ezequiel, who was very professional, competent and caring. I felt very safe and confident. I had only two lessons and yet I was impressed with what I have been... More

CRSC was simply amazing. From the moment we stepped off our ride to Domincal to the very last minute we were dropped off at the airport. The instructors are very knowledgable, patient, personable and over all an amazing team of people. It was my first time surfing and completely fell in love with it. The location couldn't have been more... More

I had an amazing 9 day stay at Costa Rica Surf Camp. The all inclusive package I picked made everything so easy. I surfed for all 9 days and the staff scheduled the surf sessions around waves that were appropriate for my surf ability. I feel like my surfing ability improved greatly throughout the week, which was a goal. Each... More

What can we say about Costa Rica Surf Camp? Amazing experience. We are first time surfers - from central Canada - and we were keen on a Christmas holiday that was not 'traditional'. We booked 11 days in Costa Rica and surfed 8 of them. Cesar and Caitlin of Costa Rica Surf Camp helped arrange accommodations, excursions, and lessons. By... More
