Stay: Madagascar Surf Lodge: www.madagascarsurflodge.com
Get there: Leonor flew from Lisbon to Paris, Paris to Antananarivo (10 hours) and then took an internal flight to Tulear. From Tulear it’s two hours’ by boat to the Madagascar Surf Lodge.
Boards: Leonor took a quiver of four Lacrau boards: a swallow tail 5’6, perfect for the smaller days, two 5’7 performance boards and one 5’10 round pin for the bigger days.
A typical day: Wake up around 5am, breakfast, head to the boat and surf from sunrise until lunchtime. Then rest all afternoon: play cards, ping-pong, listen to music, play guitar, then sometimes go for a sunset surf session.
