Two possibilities: Cross the Kwanza Bridge into the National Park of Quisama (80km south of Luanda) - see the 'Cabo Ledo' spot for details of this particular pleasure. About 1km after the bridge, at the end of the obvious flood plain, take a dirt track west (right) along the mud-flats through the grasslands down to the beginning of the rivermouth sand-spit, which extends 2km northwards. Park here and make your way along the seashore south (easier at low tide).

Three spots are surfable here, all of them lined up under the multi-coloured cliffs. The first two are small point/beach breaks which are OK but not worth the detour.
The third is the main location as it is a form of submerged rocky reef running straight out under the main cliff at its highest point. The reef breaks both right and left, with the right being slightly more hollow and shorter. In big swells this closes out completely. This is the only place I ever surfed a right in Angola (except the shipwreck on west to NW swells).
An isolated spot, overlooked by a military outpost on the cliff top - too close to the rivermouth to be really comfortable from the point of view of sharks.
Definately worth the detour on a west swell for the rare pleasure of surfing rights. Easily blown out by afternoon winds.

Patria minha, Angola - Angola will be the soon future development country in West and South of Africa, due the fast growing of investment of internal infrastructure.Angola has an open wide world relationship with all 6 continents in the earth.The culture is getting more diverse and heterogenic with Chinese presence as the latest incorporated in our society "Welcome".The majority of population is young average age 25-35. One of the main focuses needs to be recovering fast is the environmental condition of our nature resources to be transformed as part of our human life entertainment. Referred to all natural and beautiful landscape, forest and Zoo with wild life of all collection animals. Angola needs to keep the second strategy economic plan based on exploitation of other resources not only Oil & Gas. The agriculture potentiality in south of Angola shows the higher capability to hold a very strong economy in order to minimize the import commerce from others. The goal is only to import technology and start produce internally al least 99.99%. How long will be take it ? Not so far, not so long!!!
