Born in Israel, Barak became a citizen of the world at a young age traveling extensively as a professional surfer. His desire to find the ultimate surfing spot made him move to California in 2006.

In 2008, Barak moved to Shenzhen, China, to direct the team that oversaw the production and product development operations. Barak remained in China for three years before moving back to the US. After a decade working in the consumer goods industry, Barak decided to start this new enterprise. Rezort merges Barak’s passion for travel with his marketing skills, and love for the planet.
