Re:surfing senegal? - 2009/02/06 18:46 Hi,
I've lived there for 10 months. That's really a nice place to stay (locals are nice) and surf daily.
The Almadies area is the place to go. Reef spots mainly (with urchins!). Best are Ouakam, Club Med and N'Gor but for very experienced surfers. Other spots such as Le Vivier, secret are good. Le Virage is for beginers.
Enjoy your stay and say hello to locals from me

Re:surfing senegal? - 2009/03/10 23:52 Hi Giuseppe,
I took some drugs for Malaria during my stay in Senegal, but not heard about any problems. It is recommended during the rainy season.
No sharks or stone fishes problems, only urchins I have practice snorkelling but never see any sharks. There are some sharks but apparently not dangerous.
Happy surfing in the Almadies coast and say hello to Ouakam & N'Gor for me.
Best,
Chris
