there are two huge rocks called Mami & Papi, just in the middle of the line up. Easy to avoid ,but take care...
Very nice island, with lots of fishes in the water...hide some money in the wetsuit, so you can drink something in a beach bar once you left the water...
don't go if the wind is onshore-it gets mushy with a steep take off around Mami & Papi...

N'Gor right know from The Endless Summer surf movie. - A consistens wave holding all swell sizes. Very power full, sucking up water from the indside current of the island. A part from the two famous rocks called "Mami and Papi" sharp rocks covered with small urgins. The wave is just a lot of fun for advanged surfers. Should be surfed from mid-mid passing hightide. The few locals are nice. I have been surfing the wave for five month and have never seen any fight or trouble in the water. I have taken a photo from the roof of Hotel N'Gor. You are always welcom to visit us at the N'Gor Island surfcamp. The Endless Summerhouse provides all you will need, just 300m from the faumos spot.
