Somone is little known as a Surf and Stand Up Paddle spot, 70 kms from Dakar. We will not complain about it. In fact there are no huge waves here.

This is the ideal place to learn how to surf on the gentle “Beach Break”, and a good trip for a more advanced surfer who wants to find a nature place, wild, pollution free and relax!

Perfect for longboarders! But be careful, sometimes the waves reveal some barreling surprise, even for a very good surfer.

Nice waves, preserved surrounding, Somone is the perfect place to experience the endless summer way of life. If you prefer giant, crowded and polluted waves, it may be not a place for you.

We organize “Stand up paddle” expeditions in the mangroves next to the surf camp very often. You will be able to explore by yourself or in group, the 11 km of mangroves and bolongs while improving your paddling and discovering a wild and pristine wildlife.

The coast is formed of bays and rocky points. The water is generally calm, the main wind blows NW / NE, just parallel to the beach or slightly offshore. The Hotel Baobab’s beach at the laguna’s river-mouth, forms a sand bank, ideal for all surfing sports. A nice wave breaks just in front.  

The right swell direction is S / SW or with a very large NW swell to rap around the Almadies peninsula. Wind is often “off shore” in the morning during winter time.



For who wants to discover our beautiful country and learn how to surf and stand up paddle, we found a paradisiac place for you.

The Surf/SUP Camp is ideally situated in a calm and residential neighborhood, 10 minutes walking distance away from the surf spot, the laguna, and the authentic Somone village. All the rooms have their own individual bathroom and are equipped with mosquito nets, A/C, refrigerators/minibars, and televisions.
