When you think surfing, Africa probably doesn’t come to mind, but unlike most British photographer Sam Mellish
dived into the surfing culture of one of Africa’s best-kept secrets.
Senegal Surf takes us on a new journey to the Senegalese capital Dakar, home to the Dakar Rally but also its large indigenous surfing community. Whilst staying at the Malika Surf Camp and surfing the beach and point breaks around the city, Mellish manages to capture the myriad characters that live and work around Yoff beach, as well as providing an insight into Senegalese beach life.
In the series, Mallish gives you a short bio on each image and the characters he captures. Follow the Artist here.
