Meet the Kirié family!

Francois, Yama, Shane, and Maria.

We built NGOR RIGHT SURF HOUSE the way we are; ocean enthusiasts, warm and bright!
We welcome other ocean enthusiasts and want to share our passion for surfing, happiness, and Senegalese hospitality.

François moved to Senegal in 1999. He discovered the incredible Ngor Right wave just off the island and never left.

Francois has brought surfers from all over the world to Senegal and has organized memorable surf trips for more than 20 years.
He is also the owner of the SURF-ATTITUDE Surf School founded in 2000 and based in Almadies.

Francois has traveled to over thirty countries looking for waves, secret spots, and adventures. Francois has also competed at the national level in France and Senegal and is an ISA LEVEL 1 and 2 surf instructor.

Yama as well shares a passion for the ocean and nature. She is originally from the village of Ngor which is an artisanal fishing village directly across the bay. Yama grew up lulled by the sound of the waves and with the sea as her playground. Surfer, YOGA, and PILATES teacher, Yama loves to teach and share her passions.

Yama graduated from the French Federation of Green Yoga.




is located in a magical spot-the westernmost peninsula of the African continent where you can find waves for everyone; at all levels, all swell directions, and for all your surfing tastes from beach breaks, point breaks, and reef breaks

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 ambiance 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 NGOR RIGHT SURF HOUSE, the famous Ngor Right (of Endless Summer fame!) offers a long, right-hand reef break. The inside peek 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.

Beginners and Long Boarders will love Virage Beach, located about 10 minutes from the island. Virage is a fun, spunky beach break with long right-handers and a super fun African beach vibe and one of Dakar’s first zero-waste restaurants.

For those who want to enjoy West African culture, you can explore the villages and beaches on the outskirts of Dakar. You can vibe on unspoiled and uncrowded waves and beaches all along the coast that is known for its majestic baobabs, warm friendly smiles, and the vibrant colors of the African coast. You can surf all day and then enjoy a barbecue on the beach at one of the many local spots along the coast.
