I'm a photography student and a keen surfer. Going to Senegal for a month toward the end of March. Keen to do a photographic assignment on the surfing community in Senegal. Does anyone have contacts or ideas of good spots to try out.

Matt - I'm going to be on a writing assignment for Surfer's Journal all over western Africa starting around November. I'd love to hear about your trip, if you found quality surf, how the photography worked out, etc. Are you still there or in the area? I'm going to bring a camera but would obviously do better with a pro. Email or post a reply if you get this. Hope the trip went well. Looking forward to hearing about it!

When you visit Dakar check out Malika sur Mer. It's a beautiful traditional village, surronded by forest, right on the beach just north of all the noted surf spots. Malika has some waves too, the French have been surfing it for years. Malika has a tourist camp. It's fun to get
Best time to be in Dakar is in the winter when a lot of Europeans come to hang out for a while - the final leg of the Paris - Dakar rally is always fun.
I'm American. My kid surfs Rockaway and my brother surfs Cocoa Beach.

First met Patina in 1988, I agree. Senegal has some excellent surf but is economically tied to the Euro, can be expensive. Feburary is best Month followed by Sept//Oct if hurricanes develope. Malaria is a bitch though. The women...par none.

Remember 'Endless Summer 1'? points, reefs, local foods and fish, and, if you're not racist like previous responder, magically beautiful women and friendly local kids; bring a couple banged up sticks for them.
