About

Bocão

Although everyone calls him Bocão, our local tour guide’s real name is José Ricardo Ramos and he is a certified surf coach and instructor. José has lived in Rocinha for the majority of his life and at the age of 16 started to teach the children in the favela to surf by reusing old and broken planks that he collected from the beach. He currently is the founder of the Rocinha Surf School Association project, founded in 1994 by ISA Australia Surf School System. Since its inception, José expanded the business and the school is now located in the Rocinha sport complex and offers a variety of other tours, including ecological and favela tours within the community.
