Mozambique surf season?

« on: August 17 2005 12:08:00 »

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.

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.
are there any spots without ore with less sharks in moz?

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?
