With 38 coastal countries and a wealth of offshore islands, Africa is full of opportunities for the adventurous surfer with a wealth of secret surf spots begging to be explored. In this issue, we explore the remote isolated shores of the Congo, take a rather unconventional surf trip inland, pay homage to 5 of the continents wildest breaks and get a closer look at some of the environmental problems plaguing Africa.

The Green Continent
Africa is the last great natural wilderness. Let’s defend it. We investigate six environmental challenges facing the Motherland (and her waves).
Last Wave of the Zambezi
We go on safari to surf Rapid 11 in the Zambezi River, probably the world’s heaviest standing wave, for what could be the last time. The wave, along with the rafting industry could be drowned by a new dam.
The Other Big Five
Behold the wonders of Africa! Pack your bags, because we’re taking you on a little sightseeing tour of the continent’s finest setups.
A Rising Tide
Can surfing save us and are grassroots surf therapy organisations changing surf culture for the better? Better believe it. Stoke heals all wounds!
Carving up the Congo
Not like old King Leopold, we’re carving up the Congo in the best way. Exploring the perfect chocolate points and beachies of Pointe Noire and beyond with Max Armstrong and local ripper Kelly Bikoumou.
