On my way out - On my way to Senegal, looking for some good surf and a laid back atmosphere, what reasonable accomodation can i be looking for??

By anonymous , 03-12-2004

there are no sharks - the title just summed it up...look out for urchins in the rocky areas but you can avoid those, there are no sharks there i go there every weekend. no sharks. Try Secret for better surfing...it is about a fifteen minuite walk north along the shore...you will find much better surfing there.
