Summary

Welcome to the NGor Island Surf camp in Dakar - Senegal.

A paradise on a tiny Island surrounded by a few world class waves. Close to the capital center of Dakar, the camp offers you to stay in a nice and clean place. 
N’Gor Island is home to by far the best surf-oriented accommodation at N’Gor Surf Camp. Dakar has five-star hotels and the like, but you’ll be missing the vibe entirely if you stay there. Note that N’Gor Island does have solar-powered electricity, but no hot water. Nevertheless, there’s good food, friendly smiles, and the guys at the surf camp really make an effort to show you the best time possible.

We are waiting for you to come and enjoy our endless summer type of life!

ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS



The House is very peaceful and located only 50 meters from the beach and one minute walk from the mythical spot of "Ngor right" as seenin the first "The Endless Summer" movie. The house and the rooms are located on the biggest property of the Island and owned by the US/Senegalese rapper "AKON".

The Dakar peninsula offers a wealth of different spots, which operate in a variety of diverse wind and swell conditions. From the high-performance skate-ramp-like left-hander of Baie des Carpes to Club Med’s fast barrelling rights, and Ouakam’s left and right A-frame perfection, there’s something for surfers of all abilities. Many of the surf spots are situated at incredibly picturesque locations, with mosques and rocky yet verdant cliff faces making for great backdrops for all those beautiful lineup shots.

ACCOMMODATION AND CATERING


ACCOMMODATION TYPES



The camp offers a big flowery garden with hammocks and places where you can relax. A solarium from where you can enjoy a nice sea view and see the sunset. The single and double rooms are located around the main house in quiet surroundings, they all have private bathroom and their own little porch. The main house has a dormitory and two family rooms.

Sea view from the table where breakfast and dinner are served. All the camp employees will always do their best to make your
stay as enjoyable as possible. Your bedroom is cleaned by a maid every day and we have a laundry service available.

The camp does not have main electricity but we do have a solar/wind turbine system with full lighting, fans, plug sockets in each room for charging mobile phones etc., wireless internet, solar heated water and showers providing all comfort needed.  We collect plastic for recycling and we have our own compost at the camp.


CATERING



Different jelly made from local fruits and produced by the local village. For dinner we try to make people discover the traditional food of Senegal which is very good and extremely tasty. Our cook goes shopping every morning at the local market to buy the vegetables from the local farms, and the fish caught by the local fisherman around the island.


Some days our cook also prepares dishes from other West African and European countries. For lunch there are a number of beachside restaurants serving freshly caught fish and grilled meats directly in front of the ocean. There are also two small shops within close walking distance of the camp selling drinks and anything else you may need.

SURF COURSE AND ACTIVITIES


SURF COURSE DETAILS



Surfing has no age limit. We have lessons for all ages, levels and nationalities. From people that never saw a board or the sea, to those that already have previous experience of surfing but still don`t feel comfortable with it and those who have been riding waves for years and want to improve their technique. The teachers at the surf school are all local surfers, some of the best in the country. The will teach you how to surf, guide and give you an all African experience.


MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


SURF CONDITIONS

Every day our local guide Mour Mbengue will take you to the best of 19 spots. Located on the most Western point of Africa the nearby mainland peninsular attracts swell from the North, West and South offering potentially Africa's largest and most consistent swell window.

The waves here are consistent all year round--almost twice as consistent as in France and Morocco in summer. And, despite nearly half a century of surfing in Senegal, there has never been a shark attack on a surfer.

 


SURROUNDINGS / REGION



Characterization of surroundings/region:

The House is very peaceful and located only 50 meters from the beach and one minute walk from the mythical spot of "Ngor right" as seenin the first "The Endless Summer" movie.

The surfcamp is located on the tiny island of NGor, Africa’s westernmost point just off the coast of Dakar - Senegal. Eight hundred meters long and another Eight hundred from the mainland, this spot has become a trendy place and a surfer hideaway. Home to Senegal's most famous wave, the NGor right , featured in "The Endless Summer".

The island is a very peaceful and relaxed. The boat bringing you across the water is a 'pirogue' (traditional fishing boat). As soon as you step off the boat, you will feel the exotic atmosphere.

Activities and facilities:

Walking around the Island you can find small galleries offering art and music. 

On the bay side you will find quiet white sandy beaches where you can swim, relax or eat lunch. At the local beachside restaurants they serve different fish, gambas, lobster all caught by the local NGor fisherman. There are also two small grocery shops selling drinks, snacks and anything else you may need. 

On the side facing the Atlantic Ocean, the coast is pounded by almost constant swell. The solid rock foundation is creating optimal conditions for surfing. A left and a right running at each their tide, picking up even the smallest Atlantic swell in the summer.  

The night life on the island is very calm and quiet. At the camp we organize some barbecues with music and there is always a place to have a drink on the beach. You can also take a boat to the mainland (Dakar) which is only 5 minutes away where you will find exciting discos and bars in best Senegal style. We promise that you will find what you are looking for...
