 Tanzania

Africa

I don't think these places were first surfed in 2005. South-Africans are numerous in Tanzania and they surfed the country. Besides most often one needs a boat as most of the reefs are very far away.

The tide ranges are also extreme and must affect a lot the surf. There are good spots for sure, but I don't think they could be defined as "world class".

GG - I'll be flying to Dar in mid-July. Does anyone who lives there want me to buy a board here in California and sell it to them there? It would cost about $600 for a quality used board. (traveling with them is expensive)
