Meet the Ripple team

Daniel Villota
Ceo and founder

Daniel got hooked on surfing in 2010, and was an original partner of the first surf school in Phuket, Talay Surf in Bangtao, which opened in 2012. In 2014, Daniel capitalized on his sales & marketing background and began a successful digital marketing agency called E-Media Asia.

These days, Daniel has returned to his love for surfing and has partnered with Tim Campbell to open Ripple Surf Shop which is located on Surin Beach in Phuket.

“The best wave of your life is still out there…”

As surfers, we are always in search of new surfboards, accessories and clothing. Our endless search inspired us to open our own surf shop. The Ripple Team brings years of experience and knowledge of ocean sports to Thailand’s beaches. Plus, we can help you find exactly what you are looking for and ensure your surf experience is fun, enjoyable and safe.
