Established in 2012 The Bureh Beach Surf Club is the first and only surf club in Sierra Leone. In 2011 Kwepunha was set up in Liberia

BBSC Mission

Our aim is to help increase tourism to this area by offering surf lessons and board rentals as well as accommodation, food and drinks. All the revenue that will be generated will be put back into the community 100%, in the form of wages, grants and the purchasing of local goods and services. The surf club will initially employ 19 local people.

 And of course surf our asses off as much as possible!
