No Return Surf Guide

No Return in Senegal is an exposed reef break that has very consistent surf and works all around the year. Offshore winds blow from the north northeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. There is no reef break. Crowds are never a problem here. Watch out for rocks.
