Swakopmund Surfing

About Swakopmund

Namibia is not your standard surf trip destination. A harsh environment, heavy waves and the cold Benguela current makes it a place suitable only for the most hardcore of riders. It's an 1800km (1125mi) drive from Cape Town to Swakopmund, the best place to start your trip.
