First I was curious to see it this was a serious forum or just people spamming and giving people .....
I have the list on my homepage and quite a lot of my guests vising the surfcamp read them, so far load of positive responds. From beginners and also the more experienced surfers. As I have quite a lot of people reading the surf rules I wanted to update, improve the list.
The surf rules are translated into 6 different languages, so it's easier for people to understand.
So first I'll update the english version and do all the translations.

More needs to be written in the Rips section. Rips are a very serious issue around here and on the news daily. If you find yourself in an East Coast rip you will be dead in seconds.

By now most of the waves on the West African coast line has been discovered, as there is surfers living all along the coast line. Morocco is catching all the north swells from the Atlantic, making it perfect as they have loads of good points and off shore wind most of the winter. Dakar is the next place picking up north swells and the good thing here is that we also get the south swell with long periods, so we have consistent waves all year around. Then there is Liberia and Ivory coast picking up the south swell as well, that's pretty much it along the coast line here. All the other countries around only have beach breaks that gets max. waist high.
We live next to Dakar witch is pretty developed, with modern shopping centers aso. ASDL 3G 4G internet, stabile power. On the little island where we live there is no power though, but with solar, wind and a generator that's all solved. Best of all 20 nice point breaks within 10 minutes by boat
Some Europeans are coming here to surf as most Europeans are use to travel. Even 27 percent of the visitors on my homepage are from the US I have less than 10 US guests per year. As I understand from forums and talking to people, Americans are very scared of coming here.
Some of the reasons:
1. It's a Muslim country = they are all terrorists
2. ItĘs very dangerous to be here!!! Last year 4 murders where registered in Dakar (city with 3 million people) If you look at statistics it's much more safe than anywhere in the US. You can walk around the slum at night, no one will approach you and you are totally safe.
3. You get Ebola!!! No Ebola in Senegal
Guess most people also don't have the desire to travel and explore other cultures. So that might also just be an excuses to stay at home

your rules sounded just fine. in america there is a saying called 'kiss' which means "keep it simple stupid".
the kiss rule goes well with surfing.

We don't need an alcohol rule for surfing.
Not one tiny little bit.
