For Guido Schäffer, surfing was a religious experience.
In 2009, Schäffer was a 34-year-old seminarian who spent his free time surfing the beaches of Rio.
He’d grown up near Brazil’s Copacabana Beach and had been surfing since he was a child.
And he was known for leading prayer circles with his friends before heading out to ride the waves.
But Schäffer's life was cut short on a sunny morning in May, 2009.
