“Excellent surf school”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We followed 5 private surf lessons with Giorgio, who has 23 years of surf experience.
Giorgio is great, patient and VERY knowledgable.

The surf shop is very nice as well. Ricardo (aka Jean-Richard) is a very nice guy, knows all about surfing and all the spots on the island. He takes time to answer all your questions about surfing.

Anyone who wants to learn to surf, try to get some private lessons with the guys from Ripper's surf shop!
With group lessons, you never get the same quality of lessons and the teachers cannot give you (enough) individual attention.
In private lessons, tips and techniques are tailored to your abilities.

Compared with the other surf schools in the area, you get excellent value for money!
