This Gambian surfschool is founded in 2018 by Tom Maria, a fanatic surfer from the Caribbean. Gandah stands for Wave, in Wolof, the local language. Though the Gambia is not yet known for it's epic surfable coastline, the smiling coast has a lot of potential for beginning and more advanced surfers. For this reason, Gandah surfschool is opened since April 2018 and operative on the beautifull coast line of the Gambia.
Gandah Surfschool provides a safe and supportive environment to all of our clients, whether you are a first timer or an experienced surfer. We give group lessons and private lessons for all ages. Surf safari trips are also possible; we will find your favourite surf spot in Gambia!
