Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
The West African countries of Benin and Togo are largely off the map for both surfers and travellers. The two tiny nations, home to voodoo and friendly beachbreaks, offer a tropical climate and consistent, uncrowded surf potential. Whilst both destinations are unlikely to warrant a surf trip on the quality of their waves alone, for visitors to neighbouring Ghana, Benin and Togo offer an escape into a unique and magical culture. The Beninese/Togolese coast is made up of a series of steeply shelving beaches, almost entirely backed by lagoons that themselves sometimes play host to floating villages. The best waves break where a natural or manmade feature creates sandbanks, breaking up the endless shore-pound.
