Enjoy and contribute!



I don't think these places were first surfed in 2005. South-Africans are numerous in Tanzania and they surfed the country. Besides most often one needs a boat as most of the reefs are very far away.

The tide ranges are also extreme and must affect a lot the surf. There are good spots for sure, but I don't think they could be defined as "world class".

- Surfed at low tide so had to walk a long way out across rocks and reef. Glad I had reef shoes on as the numerous urchins were so sharp they managed to poke through the soles of my O'Neill surf shoes. Not fun to be dragged across the reef as ver

GG - I'll be flying to Dar in mid-July. Does anyone who lives there want me to buy a board here in California and sell it to them there? It would cost about $600 for a quality used board. (traveling with them is expensive)
