Meet the Young Malagasy Surfers Breaking Barriers

Madagascar, with a coastline of more than 6,000 kilometers, is an island off the east coast of Africa that doesn’t frequently cross the minds of surfers across the globe who journey looking for waves. In fact, many of the breaks that sit along its southwest corner go unsurfed for days and days of the year. With offshore reefs that are only accessible by boats met at the jettyless shores by carts pulled by cows, Madagascar is a surf destination seemingly frozen in time.
