The West Coast of Morocco is a dream surfing destination.
With a year round Atlantic swell - and a constantly changing shoreline of exposed and sheltered points, reefs and beach breaks - you're never far from the wave that's right for you.
- The waves were many and varied. There are so many options from Tagazhout it's unbelievable, all accessible from the coast road. From slow, gentle waves for beginners to the scarier point breaks for the experts, everyone had fun.

Whether you're looking for reeling ten foot points, endless mellow six foot walls or the perfect wave to learn on, Morocco has it all. The Tagahzout region is blessed with a multi aspect coastline which means on any given day a wide range of waves can be found to suit the whole spectrum of abilities, like wise there are spots to suit an array of swell, tide, and wind variations. 99% of the time there is always somewhere to surf. Intermediates and those new to the sport should not be put off or worried, there is nearly always somewhere sheltered and manageable. Stay at Surf Maroc and we will take you there.
The summer months (April - October) see small to medium swells with surfing mostly taking place on the beaches and reefs on the more exposed north west coast, this is great time for anyone looking for fun, uncrowded warm water surf. During the winter months ( October - March) the waves that have made Morocco famous come to life and world class surf and leg achingly long rides are a everyday occurrence.
Add in some near perfect weather conditions (300 days of sunshine a year, an average temperature Nov-Feb of 21C, water temperature 18C) and you've got all the makings of a ideal surf trip.
