Thanks for the tip Sheldon! I'm in Safi now with a swell due in Wenesday. I see it on the map and looks like I've blown right by your spot! If I have to go to Rabat to extend my Mauritania visa, I'll surely go for a look there.

Yes, Angola could be a show stopper. Reports are always changing of success getting visas at various embassies along the way and plenty of stories of utter failure with weeks or months waiting. The visa is only good for 3 months after issue and beginning this year Angola requires you to actually show up at the embassy in Houston to apply. Those two facts made getting it in the USA a no to for me. Hopefull I don't have to send you a desperate PM in my darkest hour on the Angolan border.

There is a back beach not far that has reefs all along it and you may be lucky to find others surfers to share it with.

Ride safely and rubber side down always


PS lets hope you don't have any troubles getting through Angola a lot of people do even with visa's already granted, if you do however have any issues contact me and I know a French guy that followed that route he might be able to help you with information to move the bike through. Of course don't let anything stop your dream just deal with those problems as they come up with the help of friendly locals from every country you will have the good fortune to visit. Good luck and happy surfing.
