Atmosphere

If you want some good surf go to far north (Maroc and Western Sahara) or far south (Sénégal). You have some good swell in Mauritania from november to february but not any good spot to catch it.
But if you have the time to, you may drive a 4x4 on the infinite beach and find the right place, who knows??
