Head south from Kribi, and pull in at Tara Plage. Beach next to the restaurant is a fun beach break, left and rights off the mouth of the stream (don't swallow any water!) with a small shorebreak. Ask for Peguy (Gabriel) at the bar, he's the only local surfer in Cameroon - bring wax, leashes and ding repair kits as he can't get them, and he'll show you the ropes. Works all the time, and the restaurant does nice seafood and cold beer.

Fun, but not epic, but worth the trip if you're in Cameroon. Kribi is a friendly town, no hassles, and Gabriel is fast becoming an African legend.
