Faye S 5 / 5

If you`re looking for a Surfcamp, this is the best place you can choose. The camp itself is beautiful, surfboards and wetsuits are well maintained and the location is unbeatab

e - the beach is literally right in front and you can check the waves without even leaving the house. What really makes it so special, are the people as you can feel the love and how much work, dedication and passion is put into it. They also cater for vegans, and the food is incredible! ( unlike someone else stated in their review , the rock music was very welcome =D )

We had an amazing time in the Rapture Camp in Ericeira. The surfteaching, food, staff - everything was just amazing. The camp itself is super beautiful and a nice spot to hang

out in inbetween surfsessions.

Konstantin Vasilev 5 / 5

I spent 2 amazing weeks in the camp. The camp area was very clean. Friendly stuff, good food. It is located near to the beach, so most of the time you can grab a board and go

for surfing straightaway.

Laura Vervier 5 / 5

Amazing stay in Ericeira. The staff is great, food is amazing (can’t recommend the cook enough, missing the amazing breakfast everyday since I’m back!!!), clean rooms, goo

vibes and a chill little town to relax and learn to surf. Surfing lessons with relaxed teachers you don’t let you give up and make you enjoy the learning process, all for a very cheap price. I’ll be back soon :)
