“Surf Fishing Trip May 2012 8 males in group 35 50 year age group”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

We had decided to get away from it as much as possible with the intention to surf and fish in a pristine environment with conservation and sustainable practices high on the list of priorities.

Sebastian and Manu were in charge of the Trip both native to the Island. Initially there was some quiet moments and the obvious language barrier was a problem as they sussed us out and we tried to understand the dynamic of the camp etc..
After an amazing meal and a few beers it was all smiles and our next day was mapped out.

Excellent waves and fishing followed and backed up by amazing food and great laughs round the table each night, we soon were surrounded by smiles from the locals in this qiuet sleepy mangrove village which was clean and friendly with plenty of Mangrove jack action.

the accomadation was rustic but clean perfect for fishermen and surfers not for families, with a fire in the evening and great food cooked by Stephanie the men soon slipped out of modern society back to a more social time with no TV or first world problems!

The waves and fish kept coming and we lapped it up. Manu and Sebastion looked after our every need even sorting my Visa problems out at the airport on the way back.
When we left we felt like lifelong friends and will be returning next year as it ticked the boxes.

The surfing is for Advanced surfers only as it is fast shallow reefs 10 k off shore and is not forgiving, you need to be experienced to get the most from it.
fast round tailed boards booties and rashie are needed on most waves.

The fishing is also high intensity and weak or cheap gear will be broken straight away 80lb line and Saltiga or Stella reels with Expensive GT rods only do not bother otherwise, the fishing is conservation minded barbless hooks and only taking enough to eat of fish like Tuna, all the Reef fish go back to keep the stocks up.

all in all a great spot for the sufer/fisherman to get back to nature!

Room Tip: all seem good new one being built looks nice
