Surfing in Maputo, Inhambane and Mozambique

The water temperature is warm all year round, so the most you are going to need is a springsuit. On hot days in summer and winter you will be quite comfortable surfing in boardshorts.

The most consistent surf is to be found in the winter months, from May through to August, mainly due to the cold fronts that sweep up the coast from the Cape, bringing solid six to eight-foot swells. There is also consistant surf to be had during the Cyclone season i.e. January to April.

In summer the swell tends to be a bit smaller with fun surf available at the many beach breaks. Tours operate during winter and Cyclone seasons only.

One of the big attractions of surfing in Mozambique is the uncrowded quality waves to be found all along the coast. This and the truly breathtaking, unspoilt beauty of the landscape.

Mozambique is wild with few good roads and difficult access. An ideal place for a surf adventure, we hope it always remains this way.

Surfing in Mozambique

A Rough Guide to Mozambique's Surf Spots

BARRA BEACH & POINT

Starting North from the top, around the tip of the bay, a north facing beach so so onshore days are offshore here! Exposed to North Easterly swells it's a good quality beach break at low tide. On a small swell a good spot for beginners.

THE SAND SPIT

A.k.a. 'The Mile Long Right' or 'The Mozambique Super Bank'. This wave hits a sand bar and runs the full length of beach. The wave seems to break endlessly surf as long as you can keep up or stay on your board! 10 second+ barrels are common and when this spot is going off there is nothing like it in Africa.

PRAIA TOFO & TOFO POINT

Because it is so protected, it is usually a small wave, but verly long as it runs along a sandy point. Great for longboarders and beginners.

Epic point breaks in Mozambique

TOFINHO POINT

The most consistant and best shaped wave in the Inhambane province! It sits directly in front of your accommodation and you are woken in the morning by the sound of the cracking barrels firing off the point. This is a world class, sand bottomed, right hand point break that delivers everything from deep spitting tubes to long carving cut backs. Again on a small swell a good spot for beginners and intermediates.

DINO'S LEFT

On an Easterly swell with an offshore wind, the conditions are right for this left hand reef break to peal off and looks for all the world like the waves of Indo.

BACK BEACH

This spot is around the corner on 'The Wild Side' so it acts like a wave magnet, sucking i ALL the swell from any direction. Short sucky, hollow rights and lefts.

BACK DOOR

A very shallow right tube that breaks on an almost dry reef. Hardcore space cadetts only.

COCONUT BAY

A beautiful point that can sometimes treat you to a fun long right hander that is suitable for surfers of all abilities.

PRAIA DE ZAVORA

A longer drive to the south but if Coconut bay is holding a wave, this spot will be even better and is ALWAYS worth th drive.

QUISSICO

More exposed to Southerly swells, this wave will work if it's not going off anywhere else. The drive is 'fun' but after a paddle across the lagoon you're bound to be rewarded with some epic waves.

The same breaks as the scene in the Sic surf film 'Electric Mayhem.'
