It was so good to be back in N'Gor island after travelling through all those dry bushlands in Mali for two weeks.
I again stayed at Jesper's surf camp for 10 days while in Senegal. It was quite windy and chilly most of the days, but we still had a couple of big days - 6ft+ on a set with light offshore winds blowing.
The below are some of the photos taken at N'Gor Right on one of those big days.

Instead of getting sea-urchin's thorns on my feet I got a nasty gashing when my right foot just slightly touched a rock in the water. N'Gor Right is always notorious enough for me.

Despite the fact that surfing in Senegal was introduced to the rest of the world a few decades ago by the film - Endless Summer, the population of local surfers is very small: I'm not including those grumpy white Frenchies in the count. Nevertheless, the standard of these local surfers is quite high and some of them are very stylish.

Even in this part of Africa the temperature goes down quite a bit during the night in January. So does the water-temperature in the sea. I had a 2/2 wet-suit and it was tolerable in December but not in January. It has to be at least 3/2 or even thicker.

Cold-water surfing without a good wet-suit isn't really fun. I miss my high-tech Japanese wet-suit now.
