Guinea Surf Guide

Beutiful mountains, lush jungle and a long scenic coastline is on offer in Guinea. But still little to no visitors go here and therefore the country also lacks a tourist infrastructure. Travelling through Guinea might be a struggle, but sure it will also be a rewarding struggle.

What surf you might find GoSurfAfrica.com can only guess, as there has been no reports from this country. Situated just south of Senegal with its legendary N’Gor Island breaks, it seems very likely to be great waves to throw yourself into here in Guinea.
