La Somone

La Somone is a little touristic town. see the map or GoogleMap

Kitesurfing is quiet there on flat water (attention : some stones along the beach).

There are 3 periods :

  • from november to february, the Trade Winds from North-East is offshore and gusty, 10-25kts : difficult and to avoid sad
  • from february to july, there is a thermic effect that turns thewind to North-West on the afternoons, 12-20kts : easy to use smiley
  • from july to november, the wind comes from the ocean, North-West / West / South-West, heavy, warm and wet, 5-15kts : not to bad frown

The beach (close to Hotel Baobab) at the river mouth is ideal for kite launch, just in front of a little wave ... we share it with the surfers (attention, they have priority !).

Contact Philippe +221 784836896 or Somone Surf Forever for SUP and surf, classes and rental

Contact Omar +221 779435041 if you want anything about sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing (even rescue), but he is not kitesurfing instructor.

Contact Baye Faye (tel : 773703594) on the beach near the boats, he is a young and funny guy who will give you lots of good services with his boat : balades, assistance, bodyboard and windsurf rental... and who will show you where to eat along the lagoon at Ibra's  "L'ile aux pélicans"

Enjoy the spot at Mouss' bar-restau "Au coucher du soleil" that is just at the point between lagoon and ocean : +221 775798014 / +221 771846964. There is a large beach to takeoff and land the kite, but attention, there are stones in the water, easy when high tide (to avoid for beginners !).

Note that the lagoon behind is a classed reserve, so kiteboarding is forbidden there.

me voila de retour du Senegal avec une session de kitesurf à la Somone.
En debut de semaine le vent n'était pas au rv, donc visite de la lagune,pêche, ( c'est superbe plein d'oiseaux ) .
Les 4 derniers jours!!!!! baston, des claques a 27nds ( c est rare ) des petites vagues bien sympas et un vent side, side off, normalement c est plutôt side dans l'apres midi, mais avec beaucoup moins de vent.
Je vous conseille vivement de prendre contact avec Bertil. Un passionné qui vous donnera des bons conseils pour naviguer sur les spots du Senegal et qui donne aussi des cours de kite, et aussi les endroits à aller visiter.
Encore merci Bertil pour tous tes conseils .
c est vraiment un spot où on croise quelques riders ( à qui je donne le bonjour )
Si vous étes en galère on viendra toujours vous récupérer ( Omar, club baobab ou pêcheurs )
A très bientôt
bon vent
