Ahanta Waves Surf School & Camp was founded by Peter Ansah, from Busua, and Julia Overas, from Norway. They met in 2011 when she was studying in Ghana and have been together ever since. Peter opened his own Surf School in Busua in 2015 after teaching surfing in Busua for many years. In 2016 Julia and Peter bought a piece of land which they started to develop and in 2018 they opened Ahanta Eco Lodge in Busua beach. Julia has a master’s degree in Environmental Management and Peter is an expert on surfing in Ghana so it was only natural to create an eco-friendly Surf Camp together.
We are proud of our local team and when you visit Ahanta Waves you will not only experience the best surf Ghana has to offer but also get to know the authentic Ghanaian culture and people.
We hope that when you come to Ahanta Waves for your surfing vacation, you will feel at home, as part of our local surfing community where you will get a real connection with the people, environment and local culture.
If you are looking for an unforgettable and unique surfing holiday, then Ahanta Waves in Busua is the right place for you!

Did you know..?
We are proud of our local roots. The name Ahanta Waves comes from the Ahanta Region streching across the west coast of Ghana. Legend has it that the Ahanta people traveled the sea by holding the tails of whales and dolphins. This is why the kings of Busua have the name Bonsoe (meaning whale). Today however, we rather like to use surfboards instead of whales to ride the waves.
Join Ahanta Waves Surf School & Camp to experience the local surfing lifestyle, the hospitability of the Ahanta people and the colourful culture of West Africa!
