Calling all surfers… I have always heard about surfers in search of the perfect wave that draws enthusiasts from all over the world to places like Hawaii, California, Indonesia and Australia. Enter Robertsport, Liberia a place whose uninterrupted surf is literally sending waves throughout the surfing community and attracting tourists to the relatively unspoilt coastline.
However, it appears the word is spreading too quickly for some bringing with it concerns. I came across the increasing popularity of Liberia’s surfing tourism via CNN’s Inside Africa’s recent feature on this surfer’s paradise who ask the question ‘Africa’s unspoilt surf paradise – but for how long?’, raising the age-old debate about the harmful nature of mass-tourism versus the economic benefits to the local communities. Africa has some of the most amazing place to visit in the world, with tourism vital to many of the countries economies. So what to do? And is there such a thing as a happy medium?
