|Find the best surf spots||
After nearly two decades of civil war, Liberia is on the road to recovery. There are many spots in monrovia as well as some spots up north. The coast is unexplored. There are numerous beachbreaks that generate waves varrying from waist high to double overhead. The beachbreaks are fun and can throw hard when it is on. Reefs and point breaks are more fickle but when they are on, they are on fire!
You should bring your board(s). there are no surf shops and very few boards to be shared ihn the surf community. I recommend bring a few boards and materials for fixing dings, etc. plan on donating a board and extras such as leashes, rash guards, ding repair kit, fins, etc. The counrty needs rebuilding and the surf community will be stoked by your generosity. it may even open up a few doors for you. and by the way, Mamba point cannot be missed - although it is fickle and many other better spots exists. mouse, i believe the summer months are the best - especially august. I have yet to score epic robertsport as the its legend is whispered throughout the community. still, I have gotten near perfect beachbreak all by myself and there are almost always surfable days.

Let's get it started in Liberia - I just read your last post since 2010 about you moving to Liberia and surfing.Are you still in Liberia? I'm a Liberian but currently living in Thailand,I'm planning moving back to Liberia soon.
I got interested in surfing on a beach in Thailand and since I have been liking it more.I want to get involve business wise.Liberia has too many locations for surfing and maybe we can look around and start our own business out there.

Surf session? - I'm going to Monrovia in early April. Want to hear about someone who knows when it is the session of surfing there. I would like to contact some who lived and anyone who does business there. I have plans to move down there in the spring. You are very welcome to contact me at email@example.com Greetings Anders Frank
