IPAR Philosophy and Values
Ipar Surf & Skate is a school committed to the environment and the values it entails, therefore, apart from teaching surfing, for us surfing is much more, we want to share everything we have learned over many years of nature. We consider very important to transmit the love and respect to the environment where we will spend hours, the protocols to follow in the water with the preferences in the waves, the respect between surfers and with all this, generate a positive environment while learning and enjoying.
Our purpose is to share our passion and the knowledge acquired thanks to the experience gained from surfing in different spots both in Europe and internationally (Australia, France, Indonesia) and thus create a space for growth within the culture of surfing, where we have a team of riders and can offer different possibilities, either in the area of competition or on a personal level.
