Every Easter weekend has waves in Dominical, and this year’s Semana Santa Classic did not disappoint. The surf was overhead and the winds stayed light all morning, allowing the competitors to really show off their skills. Through sponsorships and entry fees they raised $2100 to help the Costa Ballena Lifeguards out (which include Dominical and Playa Hermosa). These guards work overtime all Easter week to protect the thousands of tourists that come from inland towns like San Isidro and internationally.

Justin Hague, the lead organizer of the event explains its importance – “It’s a big event for the local surf scene but also attracts some of the best surfers in the country. The cash prize of $1000 in the Open Category makes it a big attraction.  We always want to honor and help the lifeguards as Semana Santa is probably there busiest week of the year for the dangerous job they have. There will be lots of great music and amazing food throughout the event.”

The contest would not be possible without the generous support from the community. If you run a local business and want to support this event or sponsor a local surfer who might not otherwise have a chance to participate, then email Justin at
