Magical Madagascar remains one of the last truly unexplored surfing destination on earth. With a land mass two and a half times the size of Great Britain, Madagascar is the 4 largest island in the world and is your true adventure surfing destination with thousands of miles of beaches, islands and surf breaks.
Already world famous for surf breaks such as Jelly Babies, Flame Balls, Pete’s, Googles and many more. Madagascar is waiting to be explored and there is no better way to experience Madagascar than aboard the 118ft Gaff Rig Schooner, Luna Moon.
Luna Moon will be on location off Anakao inviting guests to enjoy 18 of Madagascar’s best uncrowded breaks.

Luna Moon has expansive deck space as well as a large dinning and chill out areas. All meals are provided as well as bottled drinking water and there is a cash bar selling snacks, cooldrinks, beers and local rums.
Guests will be picked up and returned to Tulear Airport on the scheduled arrival and departure dates. Transfers to and from Luna Moon are included.
The Luna Moon tender will drop guests at the various breaks for the morning surf sessions and return to the vessel for lunch. Afternoon trade winds often allow for some epic kiting in the afternoons.
The southern province of Tuléar (Toliara) offers favourable conditions to surfers, kiters and windsurfers alike.
Anakao is a two hour sail south of Tuléar and offers a clean, hollow left hand break over a fairly exposed fire coral reef aptly named Flame Bowls (or Flameballs). Flame Bowls is a world-class kitesurfing wave. The wind, mostly cross-offshore SE from the left, kicks in around midday and is usually around 15 to 20 knots which is still very surfable. Conditions at Flame Bowls work best later in the day and there are several other left and right hand breaks to surf in the mornings. Mornings often start out at TT’s, a sheltered reef break working best in offshore easterly winds, which delivers a winding left-hand wave that reels off a horseshoe reef for approximately 200 to 300 metres. There is also a classic right-hand wave on the other side of the reef called Deans Innersand about 5kms further out another good right-hand wave called Outers.
Jelly Babies is another right hand reef break that works best when the wind is offshore.
Chefs, also in the Anakao area, is a left hand wave over an exposed point reef break that provides pretty consistent surf with offshore winds from east to north-east.
Puss-Puss is a seriously fast, hollow and dangerous wave over exposed reef ideally surfed on a full tide with good swell and NE-NW winds.
Resort works on offshore winds from the SE with a left and right hand break over exposed reef.
Ifaty, another great spot on the south pass of Ifaty to the north of Tuléar delivers a left and right break on either side of the pass. Its best surfed in the morning on outgoing low tides with an offshore easterly wind.
There are approximately 18 spots in and around Tuléar which are all included in the charter itinerary.
