La Gouira Spot Guide

About La Gouira

Among the little bays that fringe the west side of the peninsula separating Western Sahara from Mauritania, this one stands out because of its good righthander. Faces SW so will struggle for size, but handles N winds.

Dangerous border area, heavily mined. The even better spot of Cap Blanc is near, but across the border. Some discoveries remain to be made but mines still scatter the border zone. How many legs are you ready to lose for a good surf?
