STOKING TO SURF KENYA - JAMBO! I’m a Margaret River (WEST OZ) surfer,lived in DURBAN (that place is AWESOME!) for 5years & AMPING to return to Mama Africa! Currently in the TUSCAN “Surf City” of Livorno with my Italian girlfriend (some surprisingly SWEET waves,sucky reefs galore,but SUPER INCONSISTENT; only two 3-4ft days since May 13th, PAIN!). She just scored a big shipping job in Mombasa tho so we’re comin down in early July! I’m pretty stoked,seems u’z don’t get bulk swell but plenty of outer reef potential and SURELY more surf than Italy! Bringin a 5’11 Salomon & a 6’2 WA stick,trust shortboards will see me thru? But guessing there may be a few SUPRISES awaiting me! Jul-Sep sounds like da best time 2b there,NICE ONE. NOAHS sound pretty HECTIC by all accounts,I’m just HOPIN its no worse than some BITEY spots I’ve ridden in OZ,NZ,Sth Af' & Nth Cali’. Lookin fwd to meeting the Surf Tribe down there, sharing sum waves, checkin sum spots and relaxing back in2 the AFRICAN GROOVE. Stoked if any of you locals Email me b4 I arrive,otherwise SEE YOU IN THE WATER! Kwaheri for now!
tiwi river mouth - Lets say the tiwi river mouth is an interesting wave, it's short and when there is big swell the backwash can make things go a bit haywire... but its fun anyway. now that the river dsnt flow out anymore the best wave is, if u looking at the sea, on the right, at the southern end of indian ocean beach club, near the lighthouse looking thingy... it works best mid to high tide, like 3hrs before high tide...

tiwi river safe? - as a kenyan wanainchi windsurfer, i went to a new years party at tiwi river mouth beach (down the road from southern palms, diani) and the surf looked amazing, there were a couple of surfers out...i was going to back when i went back home for the easter holidays to check out the wave sailing potential, but a lot of people told me it was not safe - shiftas and general mocorras. can anyone tell me more? agree or disagree? any wavesailors out there???
short board - Definitely bring a long board cos it'll be hard catching a wave with a short board! Dont think I've ever seen a wave in Kenya at easter. Going to have to paddle out to the reefs for anything that breaks. English point maybe. good luck!
kwenda kufa mbale - If ur thinkin of coming to surf kenya, welcome, we always need some extra shark bait and we wouldn't mind a couple more speedbumps. Keep it real
Searching kenian surf - I will visit kenya in march this year. Can anyone tell me some good spots (long- or shortboard?)! Thanks alot!
- I agree with KC. Kenya's OK, but not the best surf destination. I'm sure the BEST place north of (southern) Mozambique is definitely SOMALIA ! Considering the many reef passes, islands, points, the swell window, and everything I've read about trips on the coast of that country (often talking about "dangerous surf" for boats). However that would be one of the most HARDCORE trip, given the political chaos...
my 2 cents - I would like to think I know a couple of the anonymous people who have put up messages after having taught myself to surf with my brother.And for the record I also agree that the guy who took 2 years to suss out surfing here should get a life. (message on the 29 jun 2003) .Generally, listen to what “Kenyan surfer” said on the 31jul 2003 but Ill add this;Kenya does get waves but not very many and it hardly ever gets big (over one and a half over head). Unless you have a boat you’ll end up surfing poor quality waves which are generally onshore (Glassy at best), due to the monsoons etc.
surfing Kenia - Good to find so much info about surfing in Kenia. I'm going there in May '05. Can anyone recommend a sandbottom spot for beginners with not to many sharks around? Any campings to recommend? Is it by any chance possible to rent a board out there? Thanks a lot, Jeroen
Surfing Malindi - ok - seems to be some fairly sketchy info about surfing around watamu or malindi. i am going there for only a week so won't have much time to suss out breaks, obviuosly would rather know the go beforehand. i have surfed all over west and south africa and have good knowledge regarding these areas. would be grateful of any info i can get on kenyan surfing.....anybody??? cheers
