Atmosphere

There is great music (Reggae and High-life) at the bars in the area on weekends. And a cool laid-back atmosphere.

Paddling out at sunset together with the local fishermen in wooden dugouts is great feeling.

General

For surfers living in Europe, Australia or North America Ghana is not the place to go for your next surftrip. South East Asia, Central America and the Pacific are far better than West Africa.

That said, if you're in West Africa, do bring your board (mini-mal or longboard) and you can enjoy some good surfing while you're in the region.

With some of the warmest ocean water anywhere on the planet, fun waves, no crowds and a chance to be the first person in history to surf secret spots, it is worth the effort of taking your board along with you!
