Your Guide to the Best Breaks in Bali, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Portugal

During the winter of 2003/2004 two very different people met whilst on holiday in North Africa. They had one thing in common — a love of surfing. Not just the sport, but the lifestyle; the travel and adventure involved in the search for new places to surf in far off countries while experiencing diverse cultures.

One came from Australia, a stronghold of modern surfing. He was born and bred with the ocean on his doorstep and started surfing at a very young age, competing in contests and eventually becoming one of Sydney´s top surf photographers. Later, one of Portugal’s most respected big wave water photographers.

The other hailed from Austria, a country landlocked on all sides. Without the ocean nearby, from an early age his afternoons and weekends were spent snowboarding in the winter. And, of course, wakeboarding in the summer. It was not until later in life that he was blessed with a love of surfing — the same love that consumes so many of us. He pursued his new passion at every opportunity.

The Camps of Rapture — A Network of Surf Camps
Each an entrepreneur in his own right, a chance meeting while surfing and travelling in Morocco resulted in the two putting their heads together in order to find a way to pursue their dreams. To surf great waves for the rest of their lives, the dream of all surfers. And so Rapturecamps was born.
