The islands of Cape Verde are located in front of Senegal. Located approximately 400 km and are composed of several islets.November to March is the best time with the winter swells being pushed down from the north. The north and north west swells that arrive can be expected to be in the 2-10ft range. From June to October the off shore wind blows on the North coast and you can find waves from 1 meter.
I’ve been there in March for one week and it was great. I’ve surfed from 1 meter in Santa maria (Isla of Sal) to 4 meter at Punta Preta. You can surfing alone in many surf spot and all the people is very friendly. The surfing level is very high, but you can stay in the water in a friendly way. I suggest You to bring a Video Camcoder and a Reflex to get great and colorfull photos. All photos below, come’s from my holyday.
