Some people are extremely confident in the waves, whereas others are intimidated by just being in the ocean. Just watching a beach break with surf scattered along the entire beach is enough to make your emotions oscillate from fear to excitement. At Dominical Surf school you will not be thrown in the deep end literally or metaphorically and whether you are a natural athlete or not, you will be coached with ease.
If you are a beginner, your first lesson will not take you out of depth, but explained to you in bite size sections to allow you to build up confidence. They will teach you how to be self-sufficient in the water, selecting and catching waves. If you are a good surfer you will know that when the swell gets good, it offers hollow and powerful waves. And this beach provides such swells.
Located on the Southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica makes Dominical easy to access. The beach is about 2 kilometres long from its northern river mouth to a rocky cliff on its southern end.

They will help you figure out what or why you may be doing wrong. Their enthusiasm and skills are very contagious leaving you feel relaxed.
Unlike traditional beaches, Dominical Beach has dangerous rip tides, so they have employed full time life guards. But the swimmers have to exercise caution when bathing, surfing or in any other water activities because your safety depends on you. The water is also home to stingrays and jellyfish.
