Morocco's Surf Secret
Ever considered visiting a surf location in North Africa? Well, itís only a matter of time before people are going to catch on to Morocco's best-kept secret.
There’s Supertubes in Jeffrey’s Bay, the Pipeline in Oahu, and Mavericks in California. The Gold Coast has been home to competitions for decades and Siargao Island is known for its hazardous reef breaks. Anybody with a basic knowledge of surfing can probably list off a few of the world’s top spots to catch a wave. However, few are privy to the 1,835 kilometers of Atlantic coast that has been Morocco’s secret since a group of hippies first arrived with surfboards in the 1960s. The small fishing village of Taghazoute, for example, offers premium surf at a low price. Taghazoute provides golden conditions from December to the beginning of March. The beaches are generally not crowded and the swells are perfect for a day of surfing under the North African sun.
