Ghana is undoubtedly a great place to learn how to surf. More than that… it’s a place yet to be discovered as most of the surf breaks along the coast have not even been found!
Its remoteness and difficult access through the jungle makes it hard to reach some parts of the coast. Be the first to surf a perfect wave and name it!
What you can expect during your stay at Surfinn Busua Surf Camp & Surf School is no less than the combination of perfect waves, warm water and no crowds.
Yet Ghana offers much more besides surf. It is also well regarded as a great first time African destination due to its hospitality, safety, developed road and infrastructure system. Ghana people has worked hard towards improving their lives and in creating a climate of peace and stability throughout the country. All this will make a very pleasant surf holidays experience in Africa.
Ghana is also blessed with natural beauty and offers a whole range of outdoor experiences. The most exciting of all is the safari in Mole National Park, one of the best national parks in West Africa where elephants, lions, baboons, warthogs, monkeys, antelope, and other exotic African animals are commonly sighted.
Another spectacular attraction is the series of slave forts that are found along Ghana’s “Gold Coast” (one of which is an UNESCO World Heritage Site). Guided tours are available at almost all of the more than twenty forts.
Surfinn Busua will make sure your surf trip to Ghana to be an unforgettable surf experience. Therefore we recommend that you should try to plan some extra time to take advantage of the other extraordinary things that Ghana and its people have to offer. You won’t be sorry that you did!
The surfcamp is set up at the local hotel located in village center, just a few steps away from the famous Busua Beach, shops and village market.
Here you will experience true Ghanaian hospitality, dive in African culture and enjoy fantastic international and African dishes. There’s also a rooftop bar with daily music live performances with local musicians where foreigner can participate and learn how to play African drums (djambé).
All meals included! Breakfast is served at the hotel but lunch and dinner are organized in local restaurants. Some other special meals can be ordered like fresh fish, lobster and much more for fewer than 5 euros.
By doing this we can continue to sustain local businesses. You will also have the chance, if you like, to get involved in some volunteer projects. These projects are currently focusing on ecotourism and development projects, including education, health, sanitation, surf lifesaving, sports development and environmental projects, directly related with local population.
In fact, Sustainable Development and Responsible Surf Tourism is our biggest concern.
Ghana is not yet a popular surfing destination. It has hundreds of yet-to-be discovered beach breaks, reef breaks and point-breaks that we don’t even know! Its remoteness and difficult access through the jungle makes it hard to reach some parts of the coast.
Although we recently found some perfect point-breaks in our journeys West. There’s plenty more to be discovered…Help us out to discover more spots, chart the area and name some waves!
What you can expect is no less than the combination of perfect waves, warm water and no crowds, as well as the incredible and limitless experiences of getting off the beaten track and head up the coast in a traditional fishing boat. The real African surf adventure! Imagine yourself surfing next to 16th century forts, exploring untouched fishing villages and finding perfect waves along as you go. Around almost every corner is another point break with long, heavy waves or an occasional reef break to get tubed, or even A-frame beach breaks. All this with no one in site except you and your group!
October until June is the Dry season. Expect nothing but funny waves and glorious sun. Rainy season brings great surf with a mixture of tropical storms and sun.
The Southern Hemisphere swells that hit the Western coastline of Ghana travel great distances to reach our beaches producing some of the cleanest, most orderly waves on earth. Waves in Ghana are consistently head high and consistently bigger in other West coast spots.
