Explore Senegal’s vibrant surf culture

“Inspired by Africa’s transition from Dark Continent to Bearer of Light, the tales of the mermaid goddess of the oceans Mami Wata and a passion for surfing, Bantu fuses the rich history of African art and textiles with culture of surfing deeply rooted in Africa.”

Dig this surf video filmed on location in Dakar, Senegal, for African surf apparel brand Bantu Wax. So much energy in a short edit makes me want to jump out the front door and find the nearest body of water. If you love the brand and want to check out their boardshorts and wetsuits, GO HERE.

Serene and chaotic; untouched and urban; rich, poor, old, new, sacred, sexy, wise, fast and fun — Africa: the continent that some thought was static was simply unshakable.

Since its birth, Bantu has been made in Africa, by Africans, sustainably & fairly, and that will never change. What has changed is Africa…

With over a billion people, more than half of whom are under the age of 20 – today’s Africa is literally the future of the world – and the future of the world is in Africa.

Inspired by Africa’s transition from Dark Continent to Bearer of Light, the tales of the mermaid goddess of the oceans Mami Wata and a passion for surfing, Bantu fuses the rich history of African art and textiles with the culture of surfing deeply rooted in Africa.

Bantu is real beachwear from the real Africa.
