Surfcamp marketing manager internship

Catch some waves while making a difference with an award winning & internationally recognized surf organization that uses surfing as a platform to empower the favela community.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Overview

A project that was born from the vision of Jose Ricardo

Ramos, Bocao, born and raised in the favela of Rio de Janeiro. In 1987 Bocao received his first surfboard in exchange for a video game and learned to surf alone in the waves of Sao Conrado. The children of the community saw Bocao catching the wave and asked to do the same. At that moment he realized that surfing could be a distraction for children, who were already seduced and taken to the drug trade.

He is now the founder of a surf school project, where he then expanded the business and the school is now located in a big sports complex & offers a variety of other activities  including ecological and favela tours that benefit the community.
