Info Taghazout surf
Taghazout is the best surf spot in Africa and Morocco.
The beauty of Morocco is its diversity. Surf no good? Well then
go explore. Head to the ancient capital of Marrakech, and visit
the largest souk (market) in the world. Trek through the high Atlas
Mountains, or better still, snowboard through the bastards. The
snow's good and lift tickets are cheap as chips. Bolt down to the
Sahara and visit the famous Tata Oasis. It's a truly amazing country.
A short board, a gun and 3/2 steamer will be sweet. You'll also
need a supply of leggies and wax (surf shops are pretty hard to
come by - just Taghazout) while a pair of booties will come in handy.
As a always a good first kit is essential.
In Morocco it's all about exploring... just don't forget to take
a water bottle.
There are thousands of kilometres of unsurfed terrain. You need
a car, courage and sense of adventure. With these you could discover
the best waves of your life.
Surfspots in Taghazout
Good waves but rarely surfed.
a freindly beach break, suitable for all levels, open to all swells,
never goes flat. Good beach break about 4 kms from the village.
Check at low tide with a small swell and off-shore winds.
Fast, long, right hand point break, very makeable with a great inside
barrel section. This consistent and powerful wave can be found just
Sth of the lighthouse of Cap Ghir. Easy parking and good overview.
Big Boilers: take off in front of the boil. Tricky getting in and
out of the water Urchins.
Famous sand bottomed right hand point break, speed sections, bowl
sections and barrels, this wave has it all, 250 m rides are common.
So named after the Killer whales that can sometimes be found cruising
around here. The wave starts in front of a big rock and is best
on the inside and holds big time swells. Sheltered from N wind.
Beware the caves that face the waves. Slippery walking track.
On the inside of Mystery Point. Small days only. Fresh water bubbles
up from onshore rock formations where you can rinse your face
and wetsuit. Best at incoming tide on a medium swell.
Beautiful right hand
reef break, very rippable. Very sucky wave with small take oft area
best with a medium size swell. Travelling surfers camp here on the
7. Anchor Point
Probably the most famous wave in Morocco, Long mellow walls, suitable
for long and shortboarders. Needs a big swell to break and while
it gets crowded, the atmosphere remains pretty friendly. Paddle
out either from the beach to the N (a long but safe paddle) on small
days, or jump off the point (good timing is crucial). Coming
in, either paddle back to the beach N, or surf down the point and
paddle to the small beach to the S. High tide can be very difficult
coming in over the rocks (many boards have snapped between rocks).
8. Hash Point
Nth beach in the village of Taghazout. So named for the
surfers who smoke too much and can't be bothered to walk to Anchors.
Right point, super friendly
for beginners due to the sand bottom. Fast and round wave breaking
in front of Panorama's bar/restaurant in the village of Taghazout.
10. Banana Beach
a mellow left hander or tackle the heavier right hand option.. Beach
on the mouth of a dried-up river at the village of Tamrhakht. Fun
wave between 4-6 ft. Closes out at low tide and bigger swells.
11. Devils Rock
Peaky beachy right in
front of our village, fun for all levels, enjoy a mint tea after
a session at the beachside cafe. A tubby left worth checking, 2km
Sth of Banana beach.
