Looking for a truly new and unique surfing experience? Perfect uncrowded waves all year round in a tropical paradise setting, Madagascar remains one of the last fully unexplored surfing frontiers on the planet. Located in the middle of the Mozambique Channel to the north west of Reunion Island and Mauritius, Madagascar is your true deep in the heart of Africa surfing experience! The Tulear region including the 60km stretch of coastline between Efaty and Anakao lays host to more than 18 breaks which are accessible by boat only. At least 12 of these breaks are world class on their day. We have a left hand reef break that looks like a mini Teahupoo and another two which are twice as long as Saint Leu in Reunion Island. We also have a right hander that resembles Kirra in it's heyday as well as large variety of other waves suitable for all levels of surfers, and to top it off the surf is consistent all year round and the weather and climate excellent for surfing !!!
I just returned from a 3 week surf trip in Madagascar and had such an incredible time there. If you want to surf perfect reefs all alone or just with your buddies Mada is the place to go. The waves are world class but fickle so local knowledge is the key to score epic surf. Based in Tulear Blair takes you to the best spots north and south coast depending on swell, tides, and wind. He will get you to the best waves on any given day but also when its flat Mada is beautiful and more than worth a trip, uncrowded clean beaches and water, good fishing and diving, incredible cheap seafood, and cool friendly people. I can't wait to be back there, amazing trip!

Not quite sure where to start here, just finished a 15 day surf trip and had the most insane uncrowded waves I have ever seen in my life, it just didn't stop pumping, only one flat day and apart from that just surfing perfect waves with just me and the guide and occasionally our skipper, it's like somethingout of an indonesian surf movie, you just get so many waves it's almost surreal. Still shaking my head wondering whether it was a dream, best trip ever and i won't even mention the rest, insane mate be back for sure!

Mada Surf Tours m'a fait découvrir des endroits paradisiaques tels que Sarodrano, Anakao, Mangily ... J'ai surfé des vagues magnifiques grace aux connaissances de Blair sur les conditions météorologiques, c'étais génial! De plus; il n'y a personne dans l'eau, ni surfeurs ni requins. Alors si vous avez en assez d'etre 20 surfeurs au line up ou que les requins vous empechent de pratiquer votre sport favori alors c'est à Tulear que vous devez aller!et si vous aimez faire la fete, Tulear est l'endroit idéal, j'y suis allé 2 fois déja et je retourne une 3éme. J'adore cet endroit. Merci Blair pour tout, le meilleure guide de surf que j'ai jamais rencontré ! TRANSLATION: Mada Surf Tours helped me discover the most insane places such as Sarodrano, Anakao, and Mangily ... I surfed perfect waves thanks to Blair's local knowledge of the breaks and surf conditions, it was awesome! As well it is totally uncrowded, no surfers or sharks, so if you're sick of getting hassled by 20 guys in the line up, or the shark factor is keeping you out of the water Tulear is the place you want to be! To top it off if you like partying you won’t find any better!! I have already been twice and am heading back for the third time, just can’t get enough of this place!! Thanks for everything Blair, the best surf guide I have ever met!

If you're after action and adventure look no further! Mada Surf Tours is like a hybrid mixture of the perfect surf trip set in a wild west background, never a dull moment, between surfing perfect waves with just yourself and the crew, discovering all these wild little fishing villages up and down the coast, eating the freshest and cheapest seafood you've ever seen, and the hectic partying in Tulear, this place has it all! In the words of Arnie " I'll be back!!" and that's for sure! Thanks for everything Blair, you da man mate, no way I could have ever done it without ya, you're onto a winner here, only thing I could add is, don't change anything including yaself, bloody legend !!!
Simon M, England - October 2013
It's like surf 4 trips ine one, the extreme diversity and beauty of each location offers a new and unique experience each time you set sail, from the perfect beachbreaks and raging nitelife of Tulear to the absolutely virgin beauty and tranquility of the tiny fishing village in Sarodrano, with the most perect array of breaks you have ever seen, you'd be hard pressed to find a better set up anywhere in the world! Add on top of that the super little laid back village of Mangily and the sublime waves at Ifaty reef then throw in Anakao and the insane waves at Flameballs and this place will just blow your mind! Blair has got the whole place totally wired and thanks to his local knowledge he sets you up with the killer program according to the conditions from day to day ... couldn't praise you enough my friend, keep up the good work and hope to get back to your little slice of paradise as soon as possible!!!
