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 Ifaty 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 !!!

Book the Gash Pack for ten days minimum and add on the dora package for just 50€ extra per person

On a recent exploratory surf mission we discovered a virtually unknown fishing village that lays host to five all time breaks including a left hand reef break, a right hand reef pass, an A-frame left and right reef peak as well as another classic right hand reef break . All of these spots are located within close proximity to a tiny little fishing village where we managed to organize accommodation with one of the local families who took us in and looked after us like we were royalty, a nicer family and location you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the world. We slept in very modest but comfortable cabins right on the beachfront and our host family served us freshly grilled fish, calamari, and lobster every day. When we eventually left the whole family came down the beach to see us off and we assured them that we would be back...

I couldn't stop thinking about this place with its perfect unridden waves and lovely people and thought it would be a real shame not to let our clients benefit from what was one of the most pure and authentic Malagasy experiences I have ever encountered. It is however not suited for everyone as it's a bit out of the way and is definitely big time back to the roots but if you're comfortable with modest accommodations, eating fresh seafood every day and mixing it up with the locals in a little lost slice of paradise this could be exactly the kind of deep in the heart of Africa Malagasy experience you've been looking for !!! 

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

jammies

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!

Stefan K - Germany May 2013

 

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!

Matt B - South Africa June 2013

 

WOW, what a freaky place!! and what a bloody awesome gash pack!! If I have to describe this place in a word, this word would have been: Fuckin insane mate! it's like a pearl you find in the middle of indian ocean ,la creme de la creme, if you spend all your time chasing perfect and uncrowded waves, this is the place to be for sure, a beautifull paradize you would never want to leave!!waves was pumping quite everydays, we just met friendly and happy people, enjoying nice chill out atmosphere, eating really good food and having good partys with crazy music that makes you burn the dancefloor,there is beautifull beaches and little local fisherman towns that makes unforgettable surf trip!! And I better not speak about the lovely chiks you meet there! there is a few waves you can surf around the place and Blair is knowing each ones as his pocket and bring us surf the cleanest wave depending of the conditions!'en bref, I spent a month down there, and had the beautifull life that all proper surfer is searching to live and I recomand to anyone to taste it!! thanks a lot for all blair you took good care about us during this trip and we had so much fun!!eeekaaaa we will be back mate!!!

Ben W, Reunion Island - July 2013

 

Thanks so much for a great time! The diversity of waves was great and your knowledge of where to find the best waves made it a truly memorable surfing experience! And of course, the entertainment opportunities after surfing are unmatched in the world! I'm already planning my next visit. See you again soon!

Blair is "The Legend" Place to be if your looking for amazing waves and no crowds and a great time!

Yves B - Switzerland August 2013

 

This place is a surfers paradise. Packed with world class waves and no crowds. Blair made sure we were out at the best spot every day. Great operation he has here. Book a trip with Blair and you are guaranteed to not be dissapointed!

" Mada Surf Tours, vraiment le bon plan pour passer le séjour dont nous rêvons tous, déconnecté avec de top vagues à la clés, seul au monde... enfin presque: Avec Blair le seul guide capable sur 24h, de te commander un top spot, des vagues world class et un show de 5 baleines à 2 m de la pirogue pendant une heure... Bref difficile de faire mieux!!! Amateurs de bonnes aventure... Lets go!!! Merci Blair et à bientôt..."  TRANSLATION: " Mada Surf Tours, the real deal dream holiday, off the beaten track with insane waves all to yourself ... well almost : With Blair the only guide capable in a 24 hour timeframe of finding you a world class break with perfect waves and to top it off, a show of whales swimming around the boat for an hour ... bloody hard act to beat !!! Adventure fans jump on board !!! Thanks Blair and see you soon ..." 

Olivier, Ile de La Réunion - August 2013

 

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!

Youn L, Shark Island - September 2013

 

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

 

Four surf trips in 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!!!

James D, Ireland - October 2013

 

Place sucks big time! Shitty waves, crowded and full of sharks. Expensive as, horrible dirty locals, fat ugly chicks, and theives everywhere, to be avoided at all costs!! Be back for sure haha!!

Jamie B, South Africa - November 2013

 

Waves were small but consistent with just us and Blair in the water every surf. He took us to some magic little places which were out of this world, a real culture shock and marvellous discovery trip. Thanks for everything and good luck with your tours.

Steve and Jade, Wales - November 2013

 

The Tulear area of Madagascar has some great empty waves. The problem is the surf is fickle and remote (boat access). Tony has the knowledge and equipment to get you to the waves. His prices are fair and so is he (a rare thing in Mada!). He speaks English and French and has a lot of practical info about the area. If you are spending the time and money to go to Tulear to surf, contact Tony before your trip. Enjoy!

Mark H, USA - December 2013

 

Ayant fait un peu le tour du monde des destinations surf, j'ai finalement choisi Mada cet hiver de Février... il y a des noirs partout...il fait chaud !! ...des vagues de partout sans personne...des villages de pêcheurs magiques surtout entre toralia et anakao, ask Tony...life night à tulear... à ne pas manquer !! ...des filles magnifiques.. pour les célibataires...et Tony Blair !!! toujours là pour t'accompagner dans de nouvelles expériences et te guider à travers les coutumes locals, avec lui c'est no limits just name it : cool dude. Bon, je pourrais encore écrire quelques pages sur ce trip.. mais le mieux... vous savez. Go !! PS : Avant d'y aller, il est fortement conseillé de faire une petite prépa physique : ça surf vraiment..et Tony rigole pas, il surf hard !! Si vous commencé le surf c est ok quand même, il vous trouvera la vague qui vous convient ..Encore merçi à toi Tony pour ce super trip, et see u soon !! next year !!

 

TRANSLATION: After already having visited most of the major surf destinations in the planet, in February this winter I finally decided to check out Madagascar ... to resume there are natives everywhere, its stinkin hot, waves everywhere with not a person in sight, the most insane little fishing villages especially between Toliara and Anakao, just ask Tony, the night life in Tulear a must see and do, the hottest chicks if youre single of course, ... and Tony Blair!!! always by your side guiding you through new experiences and filling you in on the local customs, with him the skys the limit, just name and its done!  I could write a whole chapter on my trip but the best idea is to just GO!!!  PS. Before leaving its strongly recommended to do some serious training cause you will surf big time and Tony doesnt muck around, he surfs full on!!!  Otherwise if youre just a learner Tony will find a suitable spot for you and make sure youre ok ... Thanks again Tony for such a great surf trip and see you soon, until next year !!!!

 

Alex G, Southern France - February 2014

 

I Just spend 4 weeks in Madagascar surfing the most perfect uncrowded waves i ever seen. There is almost always a place to surf and Blair always knows where the place to go is. Book here and you will have a fantastic trip.

 

Kristan F, Denmark - March 2014

 

Thanks for an epic mission! Can't believe there are still places where you can get PERFECT and UNCROWDED waves!! All the organisation and transfers were super smooth and cannot wait to get back! Surely it will be a selling point that you can get waves named after ya? Haha, cheers mate!

 

Brett L, Laity Peak SA - April 2014

 

Salut l équipe! encore merci pour ce séjour , l accueil , ces bons moments , et surtout toutes ces belles vagues!!!!! bonne continuation ! a bientôt! TRANSLATION: Hey guys, thanks again for the trip, the welcome, the good times, and especially all those perfect waves!!! Good luck and see you soon !

 

Mathieu P, Saint Leu - May 2014

 

One of most authentic adventure surf trips I have been on! Blair takes care of you from the moment you step off the plane. From fun waist high to cranking overhead freight trains...he will find it for you! Will be back.

 

Mark B, South Africa - May 2014

 

We spent one month surfing in Madagascar June-July 2014 with Mada Surf Tours and it was AWESOME! Pumping huge uncrowded waves in various spots, whales jumping on the background...you really couldn't wish more. Ben, our guide was doing an awesome job bringing us to the best spots depending an the swell, wind etc... Even though the swell was huge; he could find waves suiting to everybody's level. As we could not speak French, Ben's French was a huge help when organizing the accommodation and food in the small fisher villages. Food was super delicious, people friendly and happy...We are definitely going back one day!

 

Meri T, Finland - June 2014

 

Thanks again for the awesome trip! We had Really Good waves and an amzing time with Ben and Raly. Still stoked when I watch the pics. Hope I can come back some day and surf with u guys again.

 

Andre F, Germany - June 2014

 

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for our fantastic “Dads ’n Lads” Mada Surf adventure. We had a ball !!!!! Mada is a special place and it was great to be shown around by someone like yourself. Tom still (daily) educates me as to how things should be done “‘cos that’s what Blair says”. In between the late boards, taxi breakdowns, cancelled flights etc. (all part of the adventure) we had an amazing trip spending good times with our boys, friends and a world class surf guide. As much as we enjoyed The Right at Mangilly the highlight of my trip was our arvie session at JellyBabies. I seriously had more fun that afternoon than I’ve had anywhere else in the world!!!! Fun waves, all to ourselves – who could ask for more? And then to boat back to what can only be described as beach paradise accommodation, eating fresh cray’s off the flames of a beach fire, washed down with a few THB’s and then sleeping 25m from the ocean edge, to wake up in the dark ready for the dawnie and start it all over again…..heaven on earth!!!! Anakao really is a special place!

 

Darrell H, Durban SA - June 2014

 

Great trip, great service, Blair and Ben worked really hard to make sure that everything went as smooth as possible. I Surfed 12 different waves in 8 days and have been to many surf locations around the world but none like this one. I will be back. Cheers!

 

Paul A, West Oz -July 2014

 

Vagues parfaites, 9 jours de surf sur 10, ambiance roots super sympa, organisation tip top du boss Blair et de Ben, bonne bouffe et plus si affinités. Bref j'ai juste envie d'y retourner avec un peu plus de patate . A bientôt TRANSLATION - Perfect waves, 9 days surf out of 10, really cool back to the roots style, super smooth organisation from the boss Blair and the guide Ben, great food and a killer bonus plan to boot. Fully amped to get back. See you guys soon!
