|Find the best surf spots||
Fast hollow waves, warm water and uncrowded. Frequent onshore winds, lack of spots and lack of swelle (sometimes).
Surfer's should feel welcome at Mozambique. There are campsites and small bungalows right on the best beaches, local good vibes in the market, and plenty of surf if you come the right time of year. The best time is early winter from April to August, when low tides occur in the morning (eg. every 2nd week). Its best to bring all your food etc from Manguzi, South Africa, as local prices are a bit high.
Pay attention to malaria and AIDS.
