 Additional Information

urf Club is located in front of the wave. They rent Boards, give lessons, have a Bar, offer the beste food in Sierra Leone and also have accomodation. Great people and great prices!!

Due to the usual afternoon wind, its best in the morning and late evening. The drive back to Freetown can be hairy after dark even if you take the mountain road, so mornings are the go. The swell seems to wrap into Bureh from the S/SW direction and all other directions make it section more.

The main wave is a long left that, when working well, walls up really nicely. At larger sizes there are barrels to be had. There is a right on med/high tide, but it is shorter and weaker than the left. Also further down the beach on a stormy swell there is a shortdumpy wave that can be great fun, but heavy.

Great vibe and can have great waves. It is pretty consistent and almost always has some sort of surfable wave. If you are in Freetown, this is the place to go for surf.
