Kermit was founded by Gianni Grifoni and now manages it together with Rosemarie Grifoni. 

Gianni is a Italian - Swiss biologist, dive instructor and chef by profession. Built early in 2011 after finishing his studies and traveling around South East Asia, Gianni came up with the idea of the perfect surf camp: affordable yet high quality, delicious and healthy food, with options for different kinds of travelers and above all - surfers. Most of all, the place needs to have an anti-bad vibe shield.

From that idea, Kermit Surf resort was born, is growing and will continue to grow, serve, fund the local surfers, help the community and spread stoke to all travelers. 

Kermit Surf Resort Siargao is also Gwapitos HQ. 


Want to experience the Kermit Vibe first hand? Book your vacation with us and see for yourself. We'll see you in paradise! 



Kermit Siargao will be a family for you. The Gwapitos boys will take care of you.
