Program

During this surf camp, Aquaholics Zanzibar will take you out to surfing and show you a great time on the island. Every surf camp package includes a four days surf course for beginners and four guided trips to the waves for more experienced surfers, as well as a great on the spot service.

Every trip includes transfers, boat trip, all gear, guide / lessons, snacks and water. All surf trips are scheduled by Aquaholics Zanzibar depending on available groups and conditions. The trips are scheduled over low tide and time changes every day. Aquaholics Zanzibar takes you out to the nicest breaks and the surf spots that suits your skill level best.

If the waves are gone flat or the wind condition makes it impossible for you to surf, Aquaholics Zanzibar makes a plan for you and organize different activities with the same value. You will have plenty of free time on the island and with the best local knowledge, Aquaholics Zanzibar will give a good advice on other tours to do and the best places around to dine, to have a drink and to meet new people. Aquaholics Zanzibar will make the most of your holiday.

Best season for surfing in Zanzibar is June to October. The swells are more consistent and better spots are working. From December to March we get mainly wind swells. Ground swells and good surf mainly starts to come through in a short period between middle of January and middle of March. For beginners the spots are great throughout the whole season and learning conditions are perfect in Zanzibar.

Location

This retreat will take place in Zanzibar. Zanzibar is a tropical island off the Tanzanian Coast with beautiful beaches and a rich culture. Paje is one of the most vibrant places on the island, especially if you are sharing the stoke for water sports. It is well known for Kitesurfing and Aquaholics has started running surf trips to the reef where you can find some surprisingly fun waves.

The spots around the southeast coast are uncrowded and can be fun for all level surfers. The reef in Zanzibar is not as gnarly as some other tropical islands surfing spots. It is generally flat and rocky. Many sea urchins can be found in some surf spots (spikey crustaceans). However, Aquaholics Zanzibar's beginner friendly spot is almost urchin free.

Dolphins are seen regularly along the coastline and often join you for a surf session. Zanzibar is quite chancy for waves, so the knowledge of where to go is essential. The swell, wind direction, tides, and moon faze are vital in getting any form of decent wave to surf. Some different sections on the reef break with different conditions are really worth a boat trip.

The spots mostly surfed with beginners all year around are on the Dongwe Reefs. For intermediate surfers, we find some fun waves in Dongwe in our summer season. The reef off Jambiani offers the better conditions for intermediate and advanced surfers in the winter season when ground swells come through quite regularly.
