Dakar: the capital city regarded as “The Paris of West Africa”, site of the first foreign surf scene in the original Endless Summer and home of none other than international hip hop sensation Akon. Off on a mission to celebrate the Muslim holiday of Eid (not really but days off work). As the westernmost city on the African mainland with a 260 degree swell window on the peninsula (?!!!) hopefully the Atlantic winter storms cooperate.
