african waves.

Senegal is home to world class waves, warm water and perfect sunsets. With the swell from the north and the south the perfect waves meet West Africa. A true endless summer. We grew up chasing waves right here in Dakar. We welcome you to our spot to surf like a local, at any age and any stage.

The best place I could’ve gone for my first lesson! Thanks Senesurf! A must if you’re in Dakar. Operated and owned by a Senegalese entrepreneur. The food is delicious too, be sure to get the fresh ginger juice!
