In terms of surf, Africa truly is the Dark Continent, representing the great unknown when it comes to vast tracts of swell-exposed coastline. The Atlantic dominates the continental mass, despite the best efforts of the Indian Ocean to pound the shorter eastern seaboard, while the Mediterranean marches out of the northern winter, declaring war on the dusty, desert fringes. The two extremities of Morocco and South Africa are heavily surfed, mainstream destinations, but in-between them lays a whole continent of mysterious surf potential.
