Ripar Surf School, founded in the year 2001, has the aim to teach its students the basics of the sport and at the same time to convey the philosophy and the life style of surfing. We offer surf courses, equipment renting, SUP lessons and tours, Yoga sessions and Shiatsu massages. For us, the best surfer in the water is the one having most fun!
