The surfcamp is located on the tiny island of NGor, Africa’s westernmost point just off the coast of Dakar - Senegal. Eight hundred meters long and another Eight hundred from the mainland, this spot has become a trendy place and a surfer hideaway. Home to Senegal's most famous wave, the NGor right , featured in "The Endless Summer". The island is a very peaceful and relaxed. The boat bringing you across the water is a 'pirogue' (traditional fishing boat). As soon as you step off the boat, you will feel the exotic atmosphere. Walking around the Island you can find small galleries offering art and music.
On the bay side you will find quiet white sandy beaches where you can swim, relax or eat lunch. At the local beachside restaurants they serve different fish, gambas, lobster all caught by the local NGor fisherman. There are also two small grocery shops selling drinks, snacks and anything else you may need. On the side facing the Atlantic Ocean, the coast is pounded by almost constant swell. The solid rock foundation is creating optimal conditions for surfing. A left and a right running at each their tide, picking up even the smallest Atlantic swell in the summer.
The night life on the island is very calm and quiet. At the camp we organize some barbecues with music and there is always a place to have a drink on the beach. You can also take a boat to the mainland (Dakar) which is only 5 minutes away where you will find exciting discos and bars in best Senegal style. We promise that you will find what you are looking for...
