The EasyDrop Story

EasyDrop started off as a one-man company in 1997, with a couple of surfboards on the beach, and a simple website. Its German founder, Benjamin Kromayer, had originally come to Brazil to improve his Bossa skills on the guitar and on the look-out for good surf besides guitar playing, he landed in hidden tropical Itacaré. Upon realizing the great surf potential of the region, he decided to stay and set up a surf school.

Investing lots of time and $ into the company, by 2000 the school had grown into a full surf camp, with several instructors, a quiver filled with dozens of boards, besides 2 jeeps to take students to remote beaches. Soon the need for more space arose, so in 2002 an empty lot in the historical center of Itacaré was purchased, and a 2-story building constructed, to house the the school, an office and a spa.

As of now, thousands of students from all over the world have gone through the EasyDrop program. The one-man company has grown to many employees, including a multi-language office team, besides our genius instructors. Everyone at EasyDrop eats and breathes surfing, while focusing on providing our clients with maximum success in little time, in a friendly and warm Brazilian way.

Besides, EasyDrop is an important actor in the Itacaré community standing up for social-environmental sustainability and civil rights.

EasyDrop has thus become internationally renown for the quality and density of our surf learning program as well as optional services we provide.

The long time vision to bring EasyDrop into the world and set up surf camps in different places in the world started to become true with the opportunity to run EasyDrop Fuerteventura for one year in 2012. It was a great experience and maybe we come back one day in the future.
