Surf in Morroco
CommentsThe warm smooth sandy and rocky headlands makes Morocco not only a beautiful country of contrasts and splendour but provides a wealth surfing spots that will blow your mind away.
The location of Morocco at the top of Africa opposite Europe and exposed to the warmth of the Atlantic flow offers and opportunity to capture the great Atlantic swells and is one of the only spots worldwide that is consistent year long, with solid surf in autumn, winter and spring a common occurrence and small fun surf in the summer months.
Its proximity, its inexpensive cost of living, very mild oceanic climate and the fact that it looks and feels of the mysteries of the East, have earned Morocco its first place among "exotic" countries as the preferred destination of surfers world over.
Surfing was introduced to Morocco by US servicemen stationed there in the early 1960s. Since then, despite a growing surfing industry, the country's shores are still relatively uncrowded and are perfect place for all standards to enjoy the experience of surfing in warm waters and hot temperatures, with as an added bonus some treasure troves of excellent surf to be found.
Morocco is a year round surf destination contra to what you may read, with small fun waves in the summer and solid surf in the winter months. Our programme offers a chance to join the surf clinic or just to experience the quality right hand point breaks, beach breaks and reef breaks that number in the hundreds.
Eating in Morocco is an amazing and very pleasant experience. Local culinary delights include the traditional tahgine, this is a mini cone-shaped clay oven stuffed with vegetables and seafood or meat. The seafood is superb and we would suggest you truly try this if you get chance.... The beauty of Morocco is you can pick up some great bargains and you can enjoy the experience of bartering... you never pay the asking price for anything!
The Surf near our "exclusive" accommodation is some of the best you will find anywhere in the world. Opposite you have Devil's Rock and Panorama's Beach and nearby you have Killer Point, Mysteries and Anka Point. At Killers it is not uncommon to experience the thrill of having a Killer Whale pop up next to you in the line up or just cruise by far out to sea - they are not dangerous but curious and a part of the dolphin family. Mysteries is a sucky wave that is a right hand surfers dream when it goes off, just tuck in and get tubed..... Anka Point, is a famous wave and needs a big swell to be at its best (which is common anyway...), it offers flawless right walls of surf that line up for miles out to see and the sheer length of the ride is the most amazing experience, here you will find surfers from all over the world coming to experience the delights of Morocco surf.
