Senegal

The main surfing area in Senegal is just outside Dakar where a peninsula juts out into the ocean, getting one of the largest swell windows in the world. This means high quality and frequency of waves all year around.

Senegal

ilsurf_quandoandare_general info

Il surf

Senegal is one of the safest countries, from an health and safety point of view, in the whole West Africa. Moreover, its relatively proximity to Europe makes the country an attractive destination to escape from the European winter. Most of the surfers who visit Senegal focus on the coasts just outside the capital Dakar. The exposure of this peninsula is awesome as it can get swells from nearly every direction. The spots are mainly beach breaks, but you can find some reefs as Club Med (of course the spot takes its name from the facing famous hotel).

Quando andare

Senegal is a good destination year round. From December to April, the powerful swells that are generated in the North Atlantic reach its coastline with waves even of 3.5m (10 feet), making Senegal suitable for intermediate and experienced surfers. On theopposite, in summer swells from the south or west send waves that hardly exceed a 1.5 m. size, especially suitable for beginners or those who want to learn. The winds blow from the northeast from December to April and from the northwest in the remaining months. In the winter you need a 3/2mm wetsuit, while in summer the boardshorts are enough.
