Had a great morning learning how to do stand up paddleboarding with my daughter. Gian Piero is a good teacher, easy going and fun. Alghero is perfectly suited for this sport.

We had a very good time at the Ocean Tribe Watersport in Alghero!

We took two Windsurf lessons and also rented a kajak to take a trip to a little island with a lighthouse and a wreck (seriously! :) ) which Giampy, the owner recommended to us. It was a very nice trip!

The Windsurf lessons were just the best! Giampy and Paula are both very kind and enthusiastic teachers. They are funny but never loose their professional expertise. I never felt alone or unsafe at any moment on the water. They encouraged us and gave just the right amount of tips and hints.

We learned a lot and became really into it! We are looking for a surf school at home right now. So if you want to take your first steps into Windsurfing and you want to be sure to have great teachers come here! You are gonna enjoy it just as we did!

Thank you very much!

We had a fantastic time at Alghero and especially at Ocean Tribe Watersports, where we had a 10 hours beginner course for Windsurfing. Giampi was a fantastic trainer who could perfectly explain and show all you need to get started. It was big fun and we absolutely recommend it!!!

Although not easy to find, once you get into the camping La Mariposa and reach their little "office", you will get overwhelmed by their kind and attentive staff, lead by Giampy. I was lucky to be with him for a one hour beginner course of Stand-Up Paddle, together with an English couple, and all of us were impressed with Giampy's capacity to teach in a friendly and funny manner.

A wide variety in water sports and equiptment in a good condition, but the staff is undoubtedly the very best. Is a reference not to miss if you are looking for a good experience in water sports, whatever your level is.

At the end of the magnificent Alghero Lido beach before a crystal clear sea with green and turquoise shades there is a special place located between city and wilderness….Ocean Tribe! Apparently it is just a rental place for Kayak, Windfurf, Stand Up Paddle etc.; Then, you realize that yest it is “simple” in the most beautiful and authentic way but it is much more than that. Indeed I recommend anybody going on vacation in this little Barcelona of Sardinia to take a windsurf course with Giampy, the owner of the company or his three assistants Paola, Davide and Markus all incredibly talented fellows. I was interested in taking private windsurf lessons and personally called Giampy the day before departing for Alghero and kindly way invited me to go and meet him directly on the beach. I planned to take 2 lessons only but I could not stop and took much more than that even double (morning and afternoon in one day). Ocean Tribe is provided with a windsurf simulator to teach the basics of sail and board control, to experience theory on land, understand the direction of winds and learn the various names of technical sections. Giampy can be extremely nice and even funny without ever loosing his professional expertise. I was afraid windsurfing for the first time would have been a frustrating experience instead it turned to be amazing. The first lesson was held on relatively calm water within the pitch-breaks in some kind of a huge natural pool ideal for all beginners. I learned how to jibe and could immediately feel the emotion of some speed. Giampy is definitely one of the best sport instructors I have ever had. By the fourth lesson I was been guided by the two instructors Davide and Markus out of the pitch breaks to learn some more sophisticated maneuver s and gain speed toward a lighthouse in the center of the bay. Davide and Markus are extremely friendly and kind. Nobody makes you feel stupid even if you fall many times. They kindly explain where the mistake is and you are back on board more confident than before. After five lessons I felt I had at least grasped the beauty of windsurfing, I had absorbed the positive atmosphere of these special group of people and cultivated the idea of coming back soon. Giampy, Paola, Davide, Markus you are the best!!!!
