Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Centred around the Almadies Peninsula near Dakar in Senegal, swell mainly propagates down from the hyperactive North Atlantic, especially during the winter months. Although occasional south swells do occur. West African surfing was popularised by Endless Summer but the reality now is far more developed. There is no lack of quality waves during the autumn and winter months and Mauritania to the north and The Gambia to the south also hold the possibility of excellent waves. Mauritania has the possibility of holding as many quality waves as Morocco but access is tricky and its potential is only just being explored. The known Gambia is mainly beach breaks but some is still left to be explored. Water quality can be an issue around the major towns and river-mouths. Offshore winds are predominantly from the west but around Dakar multiple wind options present themselves. Sea temperatures vary between 17° to 27°C and 62°F to 81°F.
