Lagos considered one of the world’s best surf spots

An international travel and vacation website, www.matadornetwork.com, says the coast of the Lagos area is one of eight best surf spots for beginners in the world.

In an article by Rhys Stacker, an Australian surfer who is also a photographer, the waves of Lagos are placed at the level of Byron Bay in Australia, Kuta in Bali, Surfer’s Point in Barbados, Waikiki in Hawaii, Taghazoute in Morocco, Newquay in United Kingdom and Bundoran on the west coast of Ireland.

“The Lagos area has great waves. Arrifana beach and other beaches near Sagres are also favourite places for learners,” said Rhys Stacker.

According to him, the best time to come to Lagos is during spring and autumn, to avoid the summer beachgoers floods and higher prices.
