THE ACTIVITIES

The surf in Morocco, in Taghazout area enjoy of consistent, world class surfing conditions from September through to April. The combination of swell generated by the North Atlantic depressions, light offshore trade winds and a variety of point, reef and beach breaks, make the Agadir region an exceptional surfing destination. Morocco receives the same swells as the Atlantic coasts of Europe, but because of its more southerly location, does not suffer from the same cold winter weather.

 

With swells ranging from 3 to 15 feet you will always find a wave to suit your level of surfing experience and ability. Those with less experience should not worry; when the points are 15 feet and grinding there’s always a sheltered spot to found. In Summer, when Taghazout surf spots are too small, there are always some waves in nearby Tamri, Imsoune or Tifnit. Famous surf spots around Taghazout, all a short drive distance away, include Banana Beach, Hash Point, Anchor Point, Killer Point and Boiler. And Devil’s Rock walking distance from the surfcamp.
