Hi there everybody,
I will probably move to dar in may this year because of my work (developement assistent in water sector). I was was really wondering if it is possible to surf right in the city (coco beach, or whatever). Does anyone know for sure what it is like? do you have pictures (would be great :). do you have experiences surfing on the city beaches? And, the most important, how is the water quality?
I lived in panama city and there where a few waves but the so called "city beaches" really stunk like shit, and I mean it literally. So there was no chance to go out...
I'm so keen on driving to the beach at sunrise and take a wave before  going to work. this would be the persuation for me to do the job :-)
thx, marc

Hi - I have seen guys surfing out the front of the Sea Cliff hotel...where is the access to et down to the water? Also would it be recommended to wear booties across the rocks?
I have seen a couple of guys out recently and they looked to be having a great time, just 2 of them and they had the waves all day.
Any help would be great...thanks

Hey everyone,
I was near coco beach the other day and saw some ways that to my surprise looked pretty decent. (i'm from the netherlands so nearly anthing which can be called a wave looks decent to surf to me). Is there any surfers in the area that can tell me whether it's possible to surf? Or should i just forget about it? I'll be in Dar until half April.
