What you'll do

I will meet you in front of Tortilla Flats, which is just across from the beach in Dominical. First, I will match you with the appropriate surfboard and rash guard, and then we will head to the sand. For the first 15 minutes, I will review ocean safety, as well as the basics of surfing. We will also practice pop-ups on land, so you get comfortable moving to a standing position on the board. Then, you are ready to start riding the waves! Once we are in the water, I will be by your side to help you catch waves by providing you with some momentum. Between each wave, I will offer you suggestions for improving your technique as the lesson continues. Depending on your skill and comfort level, you can even try catching a few waves by yourself!

Roberto

My name is Roberto, but everyone calls me Yiyo! In English, it is pronounced Gee-Jou. I earned that name from my surf instructor when I was about 8 years old, and it stuck! That was around the time I first started surfing, and have been addicted to the sport ever since. Because of my love for the sport, I received my certification by the ISA (International Surfing Association), and am also a certified lifeguard. I love teaching surfing because I love seeing the joy on people’s faces as they continue to improve their skills. I look forward to sharing my passion for surfing with you!

Where you'll be

The surfing lesson will take place in Dominical, which is a charming little beach town in the central pacific of Costa Rica. Dominical has a reputation for being one of Costa Rica’s most consistent surf spots, and there are always fun waves to ride. The waves break far outside making perfect conditions at mid-tide for beginners to learn to surf in the white water and at high-tide long rides for intermediates surfers to progress their skills.
