I had an amazing time at the Rapture surf camp with its super welcoming staff, delicious food and its location just by the beach, which makes it a true gem of Ericeira. This i

a great place for surfers from all levels, providing lessons, equipment and advice for everyone who wants to get a taste of this laid back lifestyle. The included breakfast and dinner options are well balanced, healthy and delicious.

Tobias Tobbe

Nice location and friendly camp. Food is only available for breakfast (only toast with sweet spreads and yogurt with cereals) and dinner. There is a lot of staff, which pretty

much doesn't know what to do. All extras have to be paid in cash, though you pay the original stay online, which implies they have an actual online-system. No free dinner on the weekends and no free coffee expect for the breakfast. A little bit of party in the evening which they turn down early enough that everyone can get enough sleep. Just a few toasts with some humus or avocado in the middle of the day would be great and possible for 50€s a day.
