Bringing Surfing to Ghana

Young African surfers on Kokrobite Beach.A guide to Kokrobite wouldn’t be complete, without a section on Brett Davies, the man who brought surfing to Ghana. Brett started his surf school in Busua in Ghana’s Western Region, but moved his operation to Kokrobite to be closer to the Accra crowds.

Not only has Brett introduced surfing to Ghana (and Ghana surfing to the world), he is organising beach clean-ups in Kokrobite and surf competitions around Ghana, mentoring young Ghanaians to become surf instructors, and supporting Ghanian communities with fund raising projects. You will find Mr. Bright’s Surf School inside the compound of Big Milly’s Backyard.
