Plenty of beach-breaks. Need a big swell to work.
Don´t hesitate to take the board for some rides. I was surfing there 5 days in December last year and I only met one surfer on this spot. This was a french guy from Dakar. It´s a nice spot with a powerful but smart righthander and if you find this spot you will be a happy surfer for the day. on the end of Toubab Dialaw the road gets worther and worther till you on the beach.
Go to Toubab Dialaw and you will met the real Senegal, with friendly people and African way of life. There are places to live for every one. From a nice Gaudi styled hotel to a small room in the reggae bar from Oliver straight on the beach.
It was the best spot in my one month surfing vacation. No dangerous reef and friendly people who don´t whant to sell you someting. I only was in Dakar and the Petite Cote for Surfing. This year I will repeat the trip to Senegal and get more information.

last piece of land - damn it! it's our last piece of coast where we can run away from dakar's jungle and its ever growing crowd... leave it to us... don't invade the south coast... francois, i know business is business but let's keep these pictures of Toubab hidden somewhere else than in a surf travelling website... we want "la petite cote" to stay preserved the way it is... Almadies is already way too crowded compared to the old good days... leave us alone!
