Greyhound Retreats Surf Camp Ghana Program

During this seven-day yoga and surf camp you will be practicing yoga everyday in the mornings and learning surf twice everyday one after breakfast and the other lesson after lunch.

Surfing

The surfing is perfect for all levels. Punchy, fast beach break with the old barrel on a good swell. Works best on the mid to high tide. On a good swell expect 1-meter plus the point break starts to work, Black Mamba is a right hand point break that breaks over boulder rocks. On its day you can have 200-meter rides. Black Mamba is more for the higher intermediate or advanced surfers.

Cape 3 Points

Cape 3 Points is the most southernmost spot in Ghana. The distance between Busua and Cape 3 Points is 30 kilometers but due to bad condition of the road it takes 1-hour and 15 minutes to reach there by car or taxi. The beautiful and serene beach is surrounded by rainforest; there’s an eco-lodge with bar and restaurant services close to the beach as well.

Cape 3 Points is most suitable for intermediate and advanced surfers. There are various beach breaks right in front of the Eco-lodge as well as on the left and right point breaks. The right point has actually been rated by Stormriders as the 65th best in the world! The breaks are heavier during rainy seasons.
