Just south of Les Mamelles lighthouse, Ouakam stands out as Senegal’s world class spot. The wave breaks only about 20-30 times a year, but when it does, make sure you are on it as the left and right peak guarantees a barrel. The wave is fast, crisp and relatively easy to get into, but unforgiving down the line and even just a few people can create crowd pressures on the tight take-off zone.
