NGOR RIGHT SURF HOUSE
We are happy and proud to present our brand new surf house, NGOR RIGHT SURF HOUSE, located on the island of Ngor
Ngor Island is a surfer’s paradise. This small, magical island is cradled by the ocean and the waves. The islander’s lives are lived to the rhythm of the sea and the ebb of flow of the tides. The islanders enjoy surfing, the beach, fishing, boating, and collecting sea shells. Ngor Island enjoys consistent swell throughout the year.
The vibe you feel on Ngor Island is unique to West Africa. The island is very small, serene, charming and protected from the hustle of the city. The Islanders all know each other and life is peaceful.

At the foot of the Cliffs of Mamelles and the Oukam Mosque, is barreling OUAKAM. This amazing wave offers advanced and expert surfers endless barrels and an incredible ambience of local fishermen and Senegal’s picturesque pirogues.
The Almadies neighborhood offers several reef breaks for intermediate to expert surfers. The Almadies breaks consist of Secret Spot, Vivier Right, Vivier Left and Club Med and other breaks depending on the swell.
Directly in front of the surf house, the famous Ngor Right (of Endless Summer fame!) offers a long, right hand reef break. The inside peak of this beautiful and powerful wave is a dream for advanced and expert surfers. The shoulder peak is great for intermediate surfers as well. Our skipper will take you out in the boat and will anchor in the pass at the end of the wave for your safety and security.
Ngor Left is also right around the corner from our surf house. Ngor Left is a super fun left hand reef break but less consistent than Ngor Right.
