Hawaii, California, Angola?

Angola rarely comes up when surfers discuss possible holiday destinations, but maybe that is about to change.

“It’s unknown to most people, but we have some of the best waves in the world,” says Angolan surfer João Silva.

He is adamant that the waves at the Cabo Ledo resort are of the highest class: “Cabo Ledo makes everybody happy. You have this energy, perfect waves, perfect spots, great weather all the time.

“We have the most amazing people, this is a big family of surfers. We can camp here, we make fires, eat and drink. It’s perfect. Peace, happiness and good waves.”
