We are the first and only surf school on the island. By living and loving the island for over 6 years already we offer you the best local knowledge on basically anything about surfing and island life. Since we started in 2013 with only four surf boards and one instructor the interest in surfing in Zanzibar has grown quickly and we now stock more than 15 boards and three instructors seasonly. Be part of one of the fastest growing attraction on the Southeast Coast and offer your guests a unique experience in Zanzibar. About our Trips & Surf Lessons We offer different surf trips to choose from and suited to all level surfers. Our most popular trip is the famous Dongwe Doughnut surf trip. This trip combines three different activities in the beautiful waters right off Dongwe. After picking up everybody from their accommodation on the Southeast Coast we either start on the beach in Dongwe or Pingwe, a little further north on the southeast coast. In a covered fiberglass boat packed with surfboards, snacks and water we start our salty adventure. The first activity to try is the unique underwater wing, an invention from Hawaii that gives you the feeling of flying underwater. With a snorkel mask you get towed behind the boat holding on to the wing. Spins and dolphin-like moves are part of the fun. After everybody got to try the wing we make our way to Blue Lagoon, the by far best snorkel lagoon on the Southeast Coast. A lunch stop combined with some snorkeling await you here. Now it is time for some surf lessons in our favorite surf spot - Dongwe Doughnuts. This spot has three different sections that cater for all level surfers. In an approximately 2 hour session in the waves we hold beginner lessons for the newbies and advanced guiding for the more experienced surfers. Our surf spot has perfect beginner waves that are consistant most times out. After a good surf and some fun waves we make our way back to the boat and beach. This trip including transfers is about 4 – 5 hours long. We can also arrange surf only trips. With smaller groups we usually get a sailing boat to reach the spot. The surf only trips are around 3 hours long, depending on way of transport and how long the surf stays good. Especially for beginners and beginner lessons we find a consistant wave in Zanzibar and surf can be done on almost every day during June - Mid October and mid-December to mid-March
