The Southern Hemisphere swells travel far before they reach the coastline of Ghana. The result is organised and long period lines. The StormRider Guide Volume II notes that the waves in Ghana are consistently head high and from April to September it gets even bigger. In Ghana you can avoid the crowds of the mainstream surfing destinations. For now, it is still a playground with world-class left- and right hand breaks. 

The combination of pristine waves, warm water and no crowds, as well as limitless possibilities to get off the beaten path, makes Ghana, and especially the Ahanta West District, a rewarding surfing destination. Imagine yourself surfing next to 16th century forts, exploring traditional fishing villages and getting immersed in the rich West-African culture. Add traveling up the coast in a traditional fishing boat, or following a winding path through the rainforest to the distant sounds of breaking waves - now that is a real surf adventure!

At the end of every dusty, red sand road is another surf spot; point breaks with heavy waves and long rides, beach breaks with fast lefts and rights, or even an occasional reef break to get tubed in.
