 Liberia

Africa

After nearly two decades of civil war, Liberia is on the road to recovery. There are many spots in monrovia as well as some spots up north. The coast is unexplored. There are numerous beachbreaks that generate waves varrying from waist high to double overhead. The beachbreaks are fun and can throw hard when it is on. Reefs and point breaks are more fickle but when they are on, they are on fire!

You should bring your board(s). there are no surf shops and very few boards to be shared ihn the surf community. I recommend bring a few boards and materials for fixing dings, etc. plan on donating a board and extras such as leashes, rash guards, ding repair kit, fins, etc. The counrty needs rebuilding and the surf community will be stoked by your generosity. it may even open up a few doors for you. and by the way, Mamba point cannot be missed - although it is fickle and many other better spots exists. mouse, i believe the summer months are the best - especially august. I have yet to score epic robertsport as the its legend is whispered throughout the community. still, I have gotten near perfect beachbreak all by myself and there are almost always surfable days.

Hard Work - Like swimming upstream in a river.  Worth it whe we got to the point, but every wave meant another 20 min.+ paddle back to the point.  Ouch.  Don't know if it was the swell size that made this rip or how low the tide was, but it wa

Surf session? - I'm going to Monrovia in early April. Want to hear about someone who knows when it is the session of surfing there. I would like to contact some who lived and anyone who does business there. I have plans to move down there in the spring. You are very welcome to contact me at af@tagbyg.dk Greetings Anders Frank
