Mozambique is one of the most underrated and rewarding surfing destinations in the world. Located just above South Africa, on the Indian Ocean side of the African continent, Mozambique has some incredible, uncrowded waves.
Most decent surfing opportunities are located on the southern part of Mozambique with the two best surf spots being Tofinho and Ponta do Ouro, a world-class point break.
Ponta do Ouro is located on the very southern tip of Mozambique and it is one of AFricas longest waves! However, Ponta can be pretty fickle and needs proper swell and wind direction work properly. When it does, South Africans rush up north to surf this amazing point.
While some waves in Mozambique are starting to be known worldwide, this country still has many unexplored territories and the most adventurous surfers can definitely find waves that have barely been ridden before.
Surfing lessons and hiring of surfboards is available in Ponta do Ouro on the main beach at the Beach Bar. You can ask anyone in Ponta do Ouro to point you towards the Beach Bar situated at the campsite and they will show you.
WHEN TO SURF IN MOZAMBIQUE
