Choosing where to go on your next vacation might seem like a difficult decision. But when you look a little closer, there really is only one option that ticks all of those holiday must-haves.

We’re of course talking about booking a surf camp. Relaxing, exciting, enriching and convenient, they’re perfect for the busy student or full-time employee looking for an epic adventure away from the daily grind. Not that we’re bias or anything. But it’s hard to argue with the fact that an overseas surf trip to an exotic locale is probably the most fun you can have. No matter whether you’re by yourself or with friends.

So are you looking for the ultimate escape but aren’t sure what to do? Then check out the list we’ve put together below and discover why booking a surf camp will be the best thing you ever do.

1. Friendships that last a lifetime

With so many people from all over the world staying at our surf camps, you’re bound to meet some interesting new people.

Getting to know these people is easier than if you were to meet them in practically any other setting, too. That’s because surfing brings people together. With the many struggles that one goes through when learning to stand up becoming great talking points after a long day in the waves.

Friendships forged in this kind of environment are sure to continue long after you’ve left out camp, too. To the point, we even have people who don’t see friends they made on previous surf camps for years. Only to organize a reunion at one of our locations. Such is the power of surfing when it comes to making new friends.

2. Value for money

Science says that spending money on experiences is a great investment. And with sunsets like this… who are we to argue

We’re not going to say that booking a surf camp is an affordable holiday, given that affordability is pretty subjective. What we can say for certain though is that they’re fantastic value for money.

Now we know what you’re thinking. Of course, the surf camp and surf school provider is going to talk up their services! That’s like asking the automotive salesman whether it’s a good idea to buy a brand new car. But consider the fact that we look after all of your equipment, your food, your accommodation and your transport if necessary and the results are obvious.

Booking a surf camp is an awesome value for money proposition. If only for the reason that you’re investing in an experience rather than a material possession. Which is proven to be better for your health and your general wellbeing in the long term.

3. Excitement and fun beyond simply surfing

If you’re looking for a holiday that offers fun and excitement in spades, booking a surf camp will deliver these two things time and time again.

The surf lessons for one are a guaranteed thrill. Especially if you’ve never stepped foot on a surfboard before. But it’s also worth mentioning that at Rapture Surfcamps, we strive to offer a comprehensive experience. This means you can still get your kicks even when the waves aren’t on.

For some, this could be hanging out with new friends and socializing by our pool in Nicaragua. While others will find joy in ziplining above a verdant Costa Rican jungle.

No matter what you decide to do, there are so many activities on offer beyond simply surfing. All of which will only enrich your experience and ensure your trip is memorable for all the right reasons.

Stress? What’s that?

Life can be stressful. With commutes, long lines for coffee in the morning and the constant pressure to perform at work or university slowly wearing us down.

If you feel like you need a break from your everyday routine, booking a surf camp is the perfect solution. Seriously, the hardest decision you’ll have to make when staying with us is whether to take banana or strawberry pancakes for breakfast. And if that’s the only time your brain really has to kick into gear, then we feel like we’ve done our job.

So when work becomes a drag or the stress of university becomes too much, consider booking a surf camp at any one of our incredible destinations. Your mind and your body will thank you for it once it’s over.

6. Destinations that don’t need an Instagram filter

One of if not the biggest drawcard for many people when it comes to booking a surf camp is that they’re all located in postcard-worthy locales.

Places like Portugal, Indonesia, Nicaragua and Costa Rica, for example, are just some of the places where we here at Rapture have created camps that are quite literally heaven on earth.

Staying at these destinations means you’ll learn to surf and get to experience a beautiful and interesting new culture. Which is something that separates the learn to surf experience from almost all of the other packaged vacations that tour groups offer.

Rise to the challenge of surfing and have fun doing it

You can read Chicken Soup for the Soul every night for the rest of your life, but if you really want to grow as a person, you can’t beat booking a surf camp.

You’ll be forced to confront any fears you may have of the ocean and constantly pushed out of your comfort zone. Some of you might laugh it off, while others will face these challenges with grim determination. No matter how you approach learning to surf though, it’s an activity that requires you to tap into your inner warrior in order to master.

Trust us, those brief moments of discomfort will be totally worth it when all is said and done. Plus, a frosty libation at the end of the day always tastes infinitely better after you’ve pushed yourself to the limits and come out on top.

A surf camp experience like no other is waiting just for you.
