Mozambique surf season?

I'm in the US, and my sister is in the Peace Corp stationed near Tofu.  I want to go visit her in the next year or so, but would also like to make a surf trip out of the journey.  The Tofinho pics look pretty good, and she has said that it seems like the local surf-destination.  I was wondering what the typical surf season is there?  Is it similar to SA?  She is trying to claim December is a good month, but that just doesn't seem correct to me; i was thinking that June-Sept would likely be better.

Hey buddy,
Mozambique works similarly to north Queensland. February/March is cyclone season and the swell comes marching down the channel.
December can get good but not to much swell around in summer, best time of year would be April-September(winter). Although it is winter you can still surf in boardies - fabulous!
Plenty of uncrowded perfect righthanders everywhere, it truly is a natural footers paradise.
Enjoy!

RE: Mozambique where to surf

Howzit Steve

Youre just the bloke Im looking for, Im planning a surf trip with mates in either January or Feb depending on when they can get off work. I know this isnt the best time. Were gonna mission up the coast from Port Alfred (South Africa)

I was also wandering where abouts to go, heard Tofinho was really good. Where did you go mate? weve all been surfing since we were youngsters so looking for really gnarly righthand reef breaks.

Please help!

Hey steve,

i am going to mozambique to work there for half a year and i am so scared of the sharks. you said in your comment to watch out for them. but, do you think it helps in any way? they are coming from the deep to get you.

RE: Mozambique surf season?

I have the chance to spend a few days at Ponta do Ouro in Feb 07, but being a Brit used to Cornish waters I have no idea of how to cope with sharks. Is this really a risk? Any ideas?
