You will find very little information about the uncrowded waves surfed in North and South Morocco and we're not about to plaster the internet with our local knowledge (sorry)! However we have been running our surf guiding for 8 years in the local area, and guests always leave with a smile. With numerous point and reef breaks in the very local area for different levels of surfer there really is alot of choice, but If you want a little more assurance before booking then email us with a couple of questions.
