Dakar | N'gor Island | Senegal.
The surfcamp is is located on the tiny island of N’gor, Africa’s westernmost point just off the coast of Dakar. Five hundred metres long and another five hundred from the mainland, this spot has become a trendy place and a surfer hideaway. Home to Senegal's most famous wave, the right at N’gor beach, featured in "Endless Summer".
The surfhouse enjoys a privileged location overlooking the break. Surrounded by a large, flowery garden, it offers clean, bright and airy accommodation with a cool surfing atmosphere and a breezy terrace to chill out. Guided surf tours in van or boat are organised daily to the best spots on the island and Dakar’s peninsula, including the world class right a Ouakam.

Cool and peaceful atmosphere on the island. A few restaurants with local specialities, bars to hang out and beaches to laze out in the sun when not surfing. The mainland is connected day and night by shuttle boats, so it is always easy to go to and get back from Dakar, the country capital. Senegal is one of the most stable democracy in Africa and is the cradle of internationally renown musicians such as Youssouf N’Dour - Peter Gabriel is a regular visitor here in search of new World Music talents. The capital, Dakar, is the busiest port in Western Africa and main stopping point for flights between Europe and South America.
The climate is tropical, the water warm and the weather dry most of the year, except for the odd showers in summer (July, August and September). The dry season is dominated by the hot Harmattan wind. Water temperatures: 18º in winter + 26º rest of the year.

Mais ce qui a rendu notre voyage si intéressant tient surtout à l'ambiance qui règne au surf camp. Cela est en grande partie dû à son propriétaire Philippe, dont la bonne humeur et l'énergie sont contagieuses ainsi qu'aux moniteurs de surf locaux expérimentés et ultra cool.
Si un jour nous nous rendons de nouveau au Sénégal nous retournerons sans hésiter au surf camp Ngor de Philippe.

The camp itself is extremely laid back, the rooms are cleaned everyday and the food was good but the best thing about it is the host Phillipe. He surfed with us everyday and was probably the most enthusiastic guy in the line up. The guy makes everyone feel like they’re at home and this is supported by the level of return custom he receives. He is French but speaks perfect English and is happy to do so non French speakers don’t have to worry. He also took the time out to take me over to and guide me around Dakar, help me arrange a dive trip and generally deal with all my/guests needs. Your clients are in good hands with this guy.
All in all I had great trip.
