Senegal Surf Spot Map Feel free to add your Senegal surf spots to the map. All additional information added to this guide is greatly appreciated. So how about some useful information on surfing in Senegal. Let's start by saying there is a huge amount of quality spots and and they all have easy access. The low cost of living here is an added bonus for the travelling surfer. The Almadies Peninsula, just outside Dakar has the largest swell window of the Senegal coastline, making it an ideal base for a surf trip. Not only do you benefit from all available swell but also from being able to pick the best break for the wind. Most of the spots currently added are in this region. November to March is the best time with the winter swells being pushed down from the north. The north and north west swells that arrive can be expected to be in the 2-10ft range - giving good conditions for surfers of all levels. August to October sees smaller but consistent swells in the 3-6ft range. The long dry season should also ensure a pleasant trip. Senegal's most famous wave is probably the righthander at N'gor beach - one of the classic surf spots featured in Endless Summer . >> African Surf Vacations Surfing Senegal - The Good Many Good Quality Surf Spots No Crowds Surf Senegal - The Bad and the Ugly Inconsistent Crime Senegal Surfing Conditions Senegal Swell Size and Senegal Water Temperature If you have information on surfing in Senegal we would like to know.
