 Brave The CR Wave With The Ultimate Surfing School Experience

Sunset Surf is a renowned surfing camp and surf school in Costa Rica that provides the highest quality surf coaching available in the area.

We provide our students with the tactics and daily lessons they need to become a surf expert while keeping the experience safe as well as fun while they are on the water.

Our instructors are certified and taught by the ISA (International Surf Association) which means they understand and by the ISA code of conduct and are certified by the Costa Rican lifeguard association.

We schedule all of our surf lessons according to the tide to make sure our clients will have ideal conditions while learning to surf.

Our beginner surf lessons are held at mid tide so that you will be able to touch the sandy bottom the entire time.

During this lesson you will learn everything from water safety to ocean awareness as well as the proper mechanics to “pop up” to your feet.

You also will learn how to spot rip currents, understand how they are formed, and most importantly how to get out of them!

Come away from this lesson…

  • Knowing the parts of the board
  • Discovering how to maneuver your board through the waves safely
  • Learning how to catch the white water
  • Being able to get up to your feet and surf

This class runs 2 hours where you will be working on creating good muscle memory while using proper mechanics getting up to your feet and surfing in to the beach.

Beginner/Intermediate Lessons

You’ve mastered the techniques of getting up to your feet and your ready to paddle to the outside to start catching unbroken waves.

All of our intermediate surf lessons are held at high tide either at Dominicalito, Hermosa, or Dominical beach all depending on the swell conditions that day.

Don’t have wheels?

Don’t worry we include transportation from our home base to all of our intermediate surf lessons.

In these sessions, you will learn how to paddle out beyond the breakers, sit on your board, learn how to choose a wave, spin your board then catch and ride down the face of the wave.

We will teach you how to make the drop, turn your surf board, trim across the face of the wave, and pump your board to gain speed when needed.

You will also learn surfer etiquette and how to dismount off of your surf board safely. With a few beginner/intermediate lessons you will be ready to surf on your own in no time.

We have plenty of surf boards to choose from and we will assign you with the proper board for your skill level and size.

To make a reservation, please contact us and we will send you an invoice to pay a 20% deposit. We have a 3:1 surfer to instructor ration, please advice if you have any young kids or any special needs.
