Learn surfing in Toleara

Is there a place near Toleara to learn surfing?



RE: Learn surfing in Toleara

Hi Henrikke

I read your post in globalsurfers forum. Are your plans for Tulear /Toliara fix yet?  I'll will be there from 12. of June for around 6 weeks.

I havent been there but I have got some contacts from friends that visited before. Generally there are supposed to be excellent waves in the area for different levels (Around Nosy Ve in  Front of Anakao there is supposed to be a mellow beginner spot).   For a lot of spots you need a boat/pirogue to get to. There are very few surfers, and since surfing alone is never advisable we could have some sessions together... Let me know if you are there around the same time!

Happy Travels, Lars



RE:Surfing in Toleara

Hi, my name is Aaron & I'm a Lonely Planet author heading to Madagascar to research Lonely Planet's next edition of Madagascar & Comoros with my wife, and co-author, Becca in July.

I'm interested in surfing while I'm there, and also want to pump up the surfing coverage in the guide. If anyone has any good tips, especially concerning places to rent boards that would be great.

Cheers, Aaron

Hi, great to hear that surfing is gonna be part of the next ed. of Lonely Planet. I sent your posting to the guys directly into "surf in Mada". They should be in touch soon and hopefully, get the info you want. Best of surf,

RE: Learn surfing in Toleara

Hi there,
If anyone is still checking on this...

I'm about to head out to Madagascar for a year and will be based up in the North of the island near Diego.  I'm trying to decide whether it's worth the bother of taking my board out with me but am not sure if there will be anywhere to hire/buy one out there.  I see you guys were talking about finding out about this...any news or ideas?
