Visit Dominical Beach for a 7-day surf camp and explore all its beautiful natural attractions and consistent waves which are the reasons why hundreds of surfers call this little town a “surfers paradise”. The beach has consistent waves all year round with several surf spots for all surfing levels. Whether you are a first timer or a good seasoned surfer, this place will highly meet your surf expectations. Let this experience be a part of your precious memories!
During your surf camp, you will stay in a private room at Mavi Hotel.
On your first class, you will learn all the basics of surfing starting from zero. No experience needed for this lesson. You will learn about safety and ocean knowledge, surfing etiquette, positioning on the board, how to paddle, how to stand up properly, and how to ride a wave! The instructors will be by your side all the time making you feel safe in the water, coaching you, giving you feedback, correcting your mistakes, and helping you to improve your skills with every wave you try. After a couple of lessons, you will be ready to move to the intermediate class.
You will be taking a step further in your surfing skills. You will shift from white water to the outside break or what Dominical Surf School calls "the green waves". Some of the things that you will learn here are: timing (when to start paddling for a wave and when to stand up), positioning on the board (normally you try different size of boards according to your daily improvement), paddling techniques, turning (how to ride the wave sideways), getting trough the bigger waves, and surfing etiquette.
This lessons are for people who can actually surf already but are not great at it yet and are looking to improve their skills. Dominical Surf School offers video analysis after each session. This is the best way to get better at surfing. Looking at your self will drastically change your performance once you can see what are the issues stopping you from taking it to the next level. Dominical Surf School will be working on fixing bad habits and improving the current skills that you have.
Note: Lessons work around the ocean tide and the times are different every day.
