xai-xai is really not the best surf spot, i would also recommend that you take your own equipment, and try not to damage any boards there is no one that repairs boards there. I would suggest either going to Ponto do Ouro which is futher south, or keep going tup North to Inhambane, Morrengulu and Pomene which is a super sick right hand point with absolutely no crowds. but the further north you go you will find the sickest waves on this planet and the key is that there is not a single soul out. There are waves that break like the Mentawis on the outer Islands, but sorry that is a secret worth keeping, you just need to go and soul search. well safe travels you not going to want to leave that i promise, AHOY KEN

What level of surfing do I need to be at to ejoy the spots that you mentioned in you last post? I have surfed for 6 years and enjoyed many spots in INdo and south america. I am a intermeidate surfer on good days. I am worried that I might not be good enough to enjoy some of the spots you suggested. Also I a girl and will be traveling alone.  How sketchy is travelel alone, as a female, to these spots?

are really mentawai conditions in the outer islands you refer?
looking at a mozambique map it seems the bazaruto archipelago is hidden from south swells passing through....

I crused through xai xai and didn't see any reasons to stay there. So I spent 10 days up in Tofinho beach. Its a super small town with a couple hand fulls of ex-pats and South Aricans. Camping was definetly available there although the the three hostels are just as cheap and a little safer for your belongings. I felt totally safe while travelling there so you should be fine.  Once your in Inhambane its a short ferry and taxi ride to Tofinho. Tofinho is what heaven must look like. Dive with the whale sharks, huge schools of giant manta rays, or relax on the beach and sip on a cold beer. If you go remember one thing. Live the dream!

Yes Xai Xai does seem to be really exposed to the southerly winds that prevail in the area as it faces south. Just wondering is this the Ken who fixed my board after it got smashed up on the rocks at Tofinho on boxing day 2007. Mmmmmm Mozambique. Michael
