MOROCCO SURF GUIDE
Morocco has a temperate climate with a lot of sun, and although the water is warm the waves are regular along the coast throughout the year. The combination of an irregular coastline with the flow of the Atlantic swell results in a line more than 3600 km long which is worth exploring. The fact is that you don’t have to travel far to find a quiet corner to enjoy the best surf and the harmony between man and nature. A stop on the surfers’ path since the 1950s, the famous long right points light up during the autumn and winter. Spring is slightly less consistent and summer can be flat for long periods. Swells track north down the coast from the productive Atlantic and having propagated so far from their source are mostly of a long period. Dominant winds are from the north-west to north-east and anything that has even a fraction of east in it can set the whole region pumping. The main spots are focused around towns such as Agadir and Taghazoute leaving miles of empty coastline, especially to the south, open to exploration. Unfortunately petty crime is endemic so travellers must be extra vigilant. Sea temperatures vary between 16 and 22°C/61 to 72°F. It is in this context that, given our excellent natural conditions, Morocco is prominent in nautical sports which now mobilise a significant number of players. One of these sports is surfing. Despite the existing surfing tradition here, the last few years have been decisive in consolidating it so that today we can say that Morocco is a key country in the world surfing panorama and an outstanding destination. It was precisely because we recognised that we have a diversified offer of quality throughout this country that we decided to produce this Morocco Surf Guide. The aim of this guide is to fill an important gap in Morocco but also internationally about the information on the wave offer, as it is the first complete inventory of spots with good surfing conditions. The aim is also to contribute to an overall view of surf in Morocco and to establish its importance in the Moroccan economy, simply, directly and effectively promoting Morocco as a surf destination. The Morocco Surf Guide also wishes to convey a strong environmental message, raising agents and tourists awareness of the preservation of our natural resources, our beaches and waves, through habits which promote a code of conduct that is environmentally responsible.
