Madagascar Surf Trip

Looking for a truly new and unique surfing experience? Perfect uncrowded waves all year round in a tropical paradise setting, Madagascar remains one of the last fully unexplored surfing frontiers on the planet. Located in the middle of the Mozambique Channel to the north west of Reunion Island and Mauritius, Madagascar is your true deep in the heart of Africa surfing experience! The Tulear region including the 60km stretch of coastline between Ifaty and Anakao lays host to more than 18 breaks which are accessible by boat only. At least 12 of these breaks are world class on their day. We have a left hand reef break that looks like a mini Teahupoo and another two which are twice as long as Saint Leu in Reunion Island. We also have a right hander that resembles Kirra in it's heyday as well as large variety of other waves suitable for all levels of surfers, and to top it off the surf is consistent all year round and the weather and climate excellent for surfing !!!

" ... I seriously had more fun that afternoon than I've had anywhere else in the world!!!! Fun waves, all to ourselves – who could ask for more? And then to boat back to what can only be described as beach paradise accommodation, eating fresh cray's off the flames of a beach fire, washed down with a few THB's and then sleeping 25m from the ocean edge, to wake up in the dark ready for the dawnie and start it all over again...heaven on earth!!! ..."

This surf trip is probably up there with the best in the world, certainly when when you consider the costs compared to Indo or Maldives and the fact that you will be surfing alone practically every session. The surf trip is really well planned out by the owner Blair Rogers, he knows this surf area better than anyone and will be your guarantee to surf the best waves everyday. The amount of waves in such close proximity compares to places like playgrounds in the Mentawai, but without the crowds! Will be back very soon, thank you Blair and Ben!!! Sacha L & Elsa, Mauritius - February 2015

"...Surfing with Bair and Ben in Madagascar is like traveling back in time. this coast is still virgin and wild and Blair is a true pioneer, still discovering and naming waves as we speak. These guys are living like pirates sailing up and down the coast eating lobster and drinking local rum and surfing the most insane perfect waves with nobody ... Every morning you'll be up at the crack of dawn heading out to some perfect reef pass. The waves are world class and if you come soon you'll still be among the first  to see and surf  these spots..." Nico G & Emily P, Big Sur California - March 2015

" ... I unreservedly describe my recent Mada surf trip as 'the best surf trip of my life'. I've surfed most of the famous places in the world, multiple times and without a doubt Madagascar tops the list. When you motor past an epic, perfect wave because your on your way to a 'more perfect' wave you know you've found surfing paradise. When you jump in the water and there's no one else out, ever, that takes it to a whole new level.  Do yourself a favour, get here before the rest of the world discovers this place. It's the best surfing decision I've ever made! ... "  Daniel K, Australia - May 2015

On a recent exploratory surf mission we discovered a virtually unknown fishing village that lays host to five all time breaks including a left hand reef break, a right hand reef pass, an A-frame left and right reef peak as well as another classic right hand reef break . All of these spots are located within close proximity to a tiny little fishing village where we managed to organize accommodation with one of the local families who took us in and looked after us like we were royalty, a nicer family and location you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the world. We slept in very modest but comfortable cabins right on the beachfront and our host family served us freshly grilled fish, calamari, and lobster every day. When we eventually left the whole family came down the beach to see us off and we assured them that we would be back...

I couldn't stop thinking about this place with its perfect unridden waves and lovely people and thought it would be a real shame not to let our clients benefit from what was one of the most pure and authentic Malagasy experiences I have ever encountered. It is however not suited for everyone as it's a bit out of the way and is definitely big time back to the roots but if you're comfortable with modest accommodations, eating fresh seafood every day and mixing it up with the locals in a little lost slice of paradise this could be exactly the kind of deep in the heart of Africa Malagasy experience you've been looking for !!!

NB: It is strongly recommended to confirm your booking as early as possible to avoid dissaapointment as availabilility for the peak winter seasons months from April through September is extremely  limited. 

"Awesome trip! We were surfing in paradise and we had the reef all to ourselves, except sharing the whitewash with the occasional fisherman in a pirogue joining in on the fun! I learned so much from the surf guide Maxime and the fun atmosphere him and the skipper Ralay created is the reason why I kept extending my trip with them! The fishermen villages we stayed in were simplistic and beautiful and the people were so kind and welcoming. My favorite part of the trip was the Secret Spots because giving back to the places I visit is really important to me and you could see the happiness it brought the kids. Plus, that was my favorite spot to surf! The only warning I have is to be careful because you’ll never want to leave! Thank you!!" Amanda H, New Jersey USA - April 2018
