The best surf is at Coco Beach and the tip of the Msasani Peninsula between May and August, and when there is swell in the off season. Great after big storms in Madagascar channel. There are also spots on the beaches south of town. Try Kasa Beach about 40 kms south of town. Nice self catering accommodation at Siri Yetu... http://www.siriyetu.com.

I'm heading out to Dar es Salaam this saturday 30th Jan on business. Was wondering if there are any locals in the area with some guidance on where to surf. I'm into bodyboarding/kneeboarding but haven't been in the surf since North Beach, Durbs in 2005. Anywhere I could rent a bodyboard in Dar?

Hi, i am also in Dar, just moved in and trying to find bodyboard eq anywhere, so far with no success. So if you are coming in and have a chance to bring one with you, please do, then I can buy it...

Unfortunately so far i have not seen anyone surfing in the area of Penisula, I live in Penisula and mostly going out to Koko beach...

Good luck!

No one surf in Coco beach??? OK, good news, we have Dar surf community. It is not a surf team but one swell is up, around 10 surfers gather and surf at Coco beach.
I have been in Tanzania and surf at Coco beach more than 5 years. If you need to get some gears for body boarding, I can ask my friends. This year seems good. Looking forward to have you in our surf community! Karib Tanzania!

You can surf in Dar es salaam. The main spots are Sea cliff and Oysterbay (on the peninsula), right, left with coral and sea urchins all around;) South Beach is another spot, out of Dar es salaam.

My parents moved to Dar Es Salaam and brought a short board, 7.9foot longbard and a body board. I'm visiting them for christmas holidays and staying until the 14th of January. Is there anyone surfing here this time of the year? if yes then where exactly and at what time is the best swell?

Hi - I may be going to Dar in July/August and could bring boards out to sell. 4 or 5 in a big board bag (about 8.6 feet long so no longboards and probably only one funboard, nothing with glass on fins). I have to find out how much it would be to fly with boards, it may be cheaper to just ship them to a DHL in Dar and pick them up when I arrive. Send me an email through the website - www.crsurf.com - if you want to buy one. Include what size, tail shape, and the max you could pay for it. I wouldn't jack the price, but the cost to get each one there could be over $250 per board and a good used board here costs about $200-250 each.
