Imagine yourself surfing next to 16th century forts, exploring untouched fishing villages and looking for and finding the perfect waves. Around almost every corner is another surfable spot- a point break with a long, heavy wave offering a 50 meter plus ride, a beach break with fast lefts and rights, or even an occasional reef break to get tubed in. All this with no one in site except you and your group! There are so many breaks that we have to admit that the surf staff at Black Star Surf Shop have not yet surfed them all!
On this surf safari every day you will get a chance to surf a new break on the Ghanaian coast line. Rather than instruction you will surf with a local guide who will show you all of these great spots to surf. Because there is no instruction this tour is for more advanced surfers, so if you are just learning please ask us about these options.
The Southern Hemisphere swells that hit the Western coastline of Ghana travel great distances to reach our beaches producing some of the cleanest, most orderly waves on earth. The StormRider Guide Volume II notes that the waves in Ghana are consistently head high. This it true, but we also know of places they are consistently bigger. As Ghana is not yet a surfing destination it is marked by hundreds of yet-to-be discovered beach breaks, reef breaks and point-breaks. It is the point-breaks, mostly rights but with an occasional left, that makes Ghana a highly desirable surf adventure destination. The combination of perfect waves, warm water and no crowds, as well as the incredible and limitless experiences of getting off the beaten path and traveling up the coast in a traditional fishing boat, creates the ideal African surf adventure!
Surf tour group size
There is no minimum number of participants for the Surf Safari. So if you are traveling alone, have a week on your hands, and want to surf the best spots in Ghana, this tour is for you. While there is no minimum size, we can handle only groups up to seven people for this tour. The maximum number is to ensure adequate space in our van for you, your gear, the guides, and supplies (including your breakfast and/or lunches!). We are happy to work with you and customize your tour.
