The Next Big Thing: Surfing in Ghana

**I love the following piece about surfing in Ghana. Why Ghana’s many tourist websites are not packed full of fabulously yummy features like this one about ‘Surf Camp Ghana’ –I’ll never know; –but it’s so important for us to start now! [Because] if we as a nation are ever to prosper –then it will be in manufacturing or tourism –and not from relying on the land, -as subsistent farmers –or whatever, with our populace at the desperate mercy of the land and dependant on nature to behave its self. And I feel that tourism is most definitely something that we should be bigging-up right now. The following is from and celebrates one of Ghana’s many gorgeous beaches [off the coast of Busua, a fishing village] –and surfing.

The Ghanaian landscape is combination of beaches and reefs which makes Ghana a wonderful place for surfers. Set on the Gulf of Guinea, Ghana has a tropical climate, with the combination of perfect waves, warm water and no crowds creates the ideal place for learning how to surf. Surf camp Ghana lies on a 2 km beach in the fishing village of Busua. It is a traditional Ghanaian coastal village, 3-4 hour driving from Accra (the capital city). This tourist destination is providing you with many entertainment options boast some of the nicest beaches in Ghana. Surfing is relatively new to Ghana, but the surf instructors will guide and help you improve your surfing skills. [Credit:]
