N'gor beach is always flat since it's sheltered by an island, but there is great surf peeling off both ends of the island. The righthander here is the most consistent reef break around, and was one of the destinations in “Endless Summer”. The light-blue line-up is easily accessed by jumping out of the dug-out canoes that regularly cross the half-mile channel. Anytime the cross-shore NE trade winds blow, head to the south side of the peninsula but only if the swell is above 4-6ft at N’gor Island. It’s a short ten to fifteen minute walk, or a cheap taxi ride from N’gor village to the SW facing reefs. Around here, out of the wind, you’ll find clean, offshore conditions, as the swells will have wrapped 180° around Almadies point. The amazing contrast from the blown out north side of the peninsula to the straight offshore south side, is aided by the seemingly much lighter winds.
