Re:surfing in the gambia? - 2008/10/24 22:25 Hi chaps,

Tunks in Gambia reporting.

Small closeouts have been spotted in Fajara and it looks like things are starting to pick up.

I'll take some pics of any swells I see.

Re:surfing in the gambia? - 2008/10/27 18:07 Hi,

If by "local" you mean that I live here then yes (calling someone local here means calling them uncivilised).

There are 2 car rental places here. Both are located in the Senegambia area.

Avis: 220 439 6906

AB Rent A Car 220 446 0926

Let me know if you need more info.

Cheers

Re:surfing in the gambia? - 2008/10/27 18:23 Hi Tunks,
I am comming to Gambia in a week now. If there is anything surf-related that you need I could purchase it for you in Sweden and bring it...
How is it going with those photos? Has there been any surf lately?
Do you know anything about the northmost cape, south of the river, west of banjoul (See attached satellite map)?

How come you live in Gambia?
Lots of questions... =9

Hi,

If you could bring me some board wax I'd buy you a large beer

Surf is gradually picking up but nothing to shout about yet. That place is called Cape Point and it gets some nice offshore waves when a big swell hits. Most of the waves are concentrated on the main beach areas near the big hotels.

I was born and bred in London but my old man is from here. I moved here in 2001.

I'll pm you my number and you can be the second surfer I have met from Wannasurf.

Cheers

Edit: I usually get the forecasts from http://magicseaweed.com/Dakar-Surf-Report/645/

It gives a good indication of what to expect here.

I didn't know that meaning of the word. I am not fluent in english, and was just asking of you lived there. No offense intended

Thank you very much for the numbers! I will be calling them up and ask about prices, etc.

How does the surf use to be in the beginning of january? I will arrive on the 29th of december. Heard it used to be good around that time. Would be awesome to catch some waves with you if you are going out around that time!

Also, just tell me if you need some surfgear brought in. Heard there was no surfshops in The Gambia.
