 Access

Drive 15km south of Sumbe, pass the obvious 'canyon' and head across the flat river-valley. Before the road starts climbing, turn right down to the village of Quicombo - where an abandoned fish processing factory provides a landmark

 Additional Information

This spot wasn't working when I was in the area in 1997, but it clearly has enormous potential, as it is composed of a series of three point breaks (which probably don't link up) - all of which have flat-lying rock bases.

General

The above info is guessed, as the time we were there it was a very small swell day. I'd love to see it working! Has anyone else ever heard of this spot, or got any photos??

no good? - if surfing in angola is not so good, what keeps you going back (6 times). is surfing a side trip to your reason to be in the country?

By anonymous , 06-05-2004

Angola and especially Quicombo OVERRATED - Angola is overated.I have been to almost every main surf spot on the map on Wannasurf and the surf is average, IF there is surf. Granted I have mainly been there during the off season swell wise, but one of the things that makes a place good is consistency, and Angola aint that consistent; and as the original author and picture taker of Angola said, the big swells often roll right by Angola.Second, when there is swell it is getting crowed, granted most people can't surf and are mostly buoys in the water easily avoided, and they are mainly there because of what they read about how good it is. Ironic.Quicombo is a verified no wave. When it is flat, which it almost always is, it looks great, but when there is swell, it doesnt work.I haven't found the beach break in the picture, so I will reserve my negativity.I have been there at least six times, and it was flat five out of six times. The sixth time, there was a huge swell and Quicombo didnt get much of it, and what it did get wasn't surfable.Overated.
