Surfing and Drumming Adventure Add-on with Transportation

Surfing in GhanaThis week long extension to our adventures is a great way to learn to surf, further your skills, or surf some great breaks with a local guide.  This add-on includes transportation to Busua from Accra and back to Accra since your primary adventure does not go through Busua.  If your primary adventure did not include much time on the water, and you have always thought surfing would be fun to try this surfari is a MUST for you.  Ghana’s coast line is a beautiful place to visit and should not be missed on a trip to Ghana, if you have the time this is a great way to see some of the clean remote beaches of Western Ghana and do it with the Adventure of surfing mixed in.

Once you reach Busua…..

Ghana Surf Spot

Ghana is a great place for Advanced Surfers, Intermediate Surfers and Beginning Surfers.  When you reach Busua Beach in the beautiful Western Region of Ghana you will check into your accommodation at Dadson’s Lodge, which is a very comfortable locally owned accommodation.  The stay will be very comfortable, but not luxurious with a clean secured room and bathroom with ambient temperature showers.  From there you will head the few short steps to the beach and Black Star Surf Shop where you will meet the rest of the crew taking care of you for the next 7 days.  Feel free to grab a bite to eat at the Okroye Tree Restaurant where you will have 3 meals a day covered with your surfari.

Beginner and Intermediate Surfers:

When you are sufficiently settled in fed and rested, and you are ready to get out on the water, you will meet your surf instructor who will have you standing and sliding down waves by the end of the week, or have you feeling much more comfortable with improved skills if this is not your first time.

The schedule for the week is listed below but don’t feel trapped by it, you must remember that you are surfing in the tropics for the next 7 days in West Africa, you will probably forget a schedule even exists and fall into your own rhythm with surf lessons, free surfing, eating, relaxing, exploring the village, exploring the area around Busua, and spending 2 of the afternoons away surfing secluded, remote surf breaks.

 For very comfortable intermediate, and advanced surfers:

Ghana may be a great place for learning surfers, especially with Black Star Surf Shop being right on Busua beach where an island protects the beach some, but there are also some killer breaks and surf for those looking for a little more excitement and Adventure. If this is what you are after then you have also come to the right place.  Within a short drive or boat trip from Black Star Surf Shop are some world class breaks and you will get more then enough time to ride them.  Your guide will know exactly where to take you each given day for the best ride, or the type of break you want to ride.  When you reach the spot, you can hoop right into the water and paddle out because you do not have to worry about struggling to get a wet suit on with the constant bath water temperature of the surf.  You wont have to wait in a line up either because it will be just you and the people that you came with plus your guide.  It can’t get much better than that.

Below is a table showing how your week could go down, but what you want to surf is totally up to you, even though you will be encouraged to try some of the favorite spots of your guide.

African Drumming Lessons

Your surf camp has teamed up with long time African drumming instructor, Francis Abby, to bring African drum lessons to Busua. You can’t always be surfing the awesome waves of Busua, so this is an opportunity to take some time to experience traditional African culture and learn to drum!
