THE EPICENTRE OF ANGOLA SURFING
This small fishing village is where you’ll find the country’s most popular surf spot, which has hosted some competitions.
Located in a tropical zone, Angola has unique weather, divided between a rainy season, from September to April, and a dry season, also known as Cacimbo, which is ideal for surfing. The cold Benguela stream, the rugged terrain in the interior and the proximity of the sea and the Namibia desert all bear influence on this, creating different weather in different parts of the country. The coast is quite humid, with more intense rainfall in the North than in the South, which is more arid. The average temperature is around 23 degrees.
The best surfing season in Angola is from June onward, with the beginning of the dry Cacimbo winter season and which continues until mid-October. This is a very consistent period, when the air and water temperatures drop slightly. You’d be hard pressed to catch a flat day this time of the year.
