Surf Resorts in Africa

 

Surfing in Africa hasn't been explored as much as other regions but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of hidden gems along its abundant coastlines. There are a ton of great surf breaks in Morocco and South Africa that are world class and play host to several world international ASP events every year. 

 

Morocco is known for its right handers that are consistent through the Spring months. All of the top spots are found in smaller coastal towns so be prepared to bring all your own gear and load up the rental car as you won't be able to find too many supplies when you are on the road. 

 

South Africa is probably the most well known country in Africa for surfing with so many quality breaks scattered around the coastline. J-Bay is considered the world's best rig hand wave as well as tons of quality breaks in Cape Town and Durban. There are all sorts of waves to be enjoyed here, everything from long perfect point breaks, peaky beach breaks and tubing reefs. Bring a thick wetsuit as water temperatures can get a little cool and also be aware that there are a lot of Great White Sharks in this area so always consult a local before heading to make sure you are in a safe area. Food for thought :) !
