Your bodyboard and surf stay in Dakar
Want to thrill and ride the mythical wave of N’gor?

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned surfer, François Kirié alias Pantcho, installed in the country for more than 20 years, welcomes you for a surf and bodyboard stay on the outskirts of the capital!

At François' Quicksilver school, you will relive "The Endless Summer" by Bruce Brown, this time being the actors of your own film! Always accompanied by professionals who will tell you where and when to be at the right time on the wave, you take advantage of each day to progress and have a good time between the rollers. Good meals, comfortable, air-conditioned rooms, relaxing or cultural activities, that's what you need to recover from the good surf mornings that await you. You just have to choose the formula that suits you best! It's your turn !

Day 1
First swim!
We put ourselves in the bath immediately and we leave for a morning of surfing! Here, it's surfing or bodyboarding activity every morning to have a good time and improve your level!

Lunch then rest of the day free. At the end of the day, at sunset time, a short yoga session on the beach or on the rooftop. The opportunity to relax and fully enjoy this lovely moment.

 

Half board and night.

Day 2
Sports morning and discovery of the Mamelles
Morning surf or bodyboard. After lunch, you leave for a tour of the Mamelles! In the program ? Visit the market, the mosque and the beach! This afternoon will also be an opportunity to discover the Monument to the African Renaissance. This copper work overlooking the capital is 52 meters high and represents a man who sprang from the crater of one of the hills of the Mamelles. Shirtless he carries a child in one arm and a woman in the other. Return to Keur des Mamelles, dinner and overnight.

Day 5
Sports morning and street-art visit to Dakar
Are we here to surf yes or well? Surf or bodyboard morning! This afternoon, we invite you to take a street-art tour of the medina. Today, the Senegalese capital is one of the most active and attractive cities in West Africa in terms of urban art. The works were born towards the end of the 1980s when the population and particularly the young people wanted to embellish the city walls. Here, the works collide, overlap and impose themselves more and more since the 2000s. It is a veritable open-air museum that you can survey for a few hours!

 

Half board and night.

Day 6
Sport and initiation to African dance
Morning surf and bodyboard then African dance or Sabar in the early afternoon! If you feel like it, you can enjoy this end of the day by surfing the Senegalese waves.

Last day at Keur des Mamelles! This morning you are leaving for your last surf or bodyboard session on the best spots in the capital. It's time to show everyone the progress you've made thanks to this intensive week! Lunch then boat and paddle ride depending on the number of people you are (min 4 people). At the end of the afternoon, enjoy an IFT or Yoga session on the rooftop before your surfing holiday ends ...
