Costa Rica Surf Camp History

Cesar Valverde grew up by the beach in Playa Dominicalito de Osa. He runs Costa Rica Surf Camp with the vision and goal of great surf instruction and wonderful guest services, which has always characterized Costa Rica Surf Camp in Playa Dominical as the best surf vacation destination in Costa Rica. Cesar started his surfing when he was 9 at Punta Limonal, a series of rocks and point breaks just south of Playa Dominical and hasn’t stopped since. In his late teens, Cesar enjoyed competing in surf competitions and held a place on the national team. Now he dedicates his time to the surf camp and surfing.

Cesar is a very caring person and always goes out of his way to see that his guests have a great time. Not only does he love sharing his knowledge of surfing, but he also enjoys showing his guests the culture of Playa Dominical. He strives to make everyone’s experience in our surf camp unique and personal. He also makes sure that everyone leaves with the confidence to surf waves on their own. Cesar loves sharing his love of Playa Dominical with travelers from around the world.
