MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


SURF CONDITIONS
Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots

-Agadir at 14 km : Large sandy bay where some beachbreak peaks unroll and have a tendency to close up to 1.20m. Walking South towards Oued Massa’s river mouth, close to the Presidential Palace, some quality peaks. An alternative when the coast saturates.

-Bo & Co 2 : Beachbreak that can prove fantastic (it depends of the sand-bank). A fairway takes you to the spot without paddling and without the wave crashing above your head. It starts in a powerful basin offering you a very tight tubular right and/or a left that has a propensity for turning around itself even with a very hollow section. This spot works from 30cm to 2m, 2.50m max and need little swell on the usual spots, very sensitive to the wind. For every surfer.

-Bo & Co 3 : Very good-quality right and left on flat stones that can end up under the sand according to the time. The environment is gorgeous, needs a little swell on the usual spot. For intermediate surfers.

-11 and 12  at 3 km: very nice lefts, tubular during the first section on a rocky flat stone, reef wave feeling when take-off – to surf especially in low, rising tide.

-Banana at 1 km : Long right coming from a cliff and ending up on a pebble or sand beach. This low tide wave can be extraordinary, turning into a nice right left peak and sheltered from the Northern wind in the rising tide.

-Devil's Rock at 800 m : Small beach isolated between two rock advances. Beachbreak that can almost always be surfed with some very good-quality waves sometimes.

-Tamghart / Crocodile at 800 m : Nice and quite easy wave – usually for beginners

-Anchor Point at 6 km : The left can be very fun, can be surfed in high tide. The right, mythic Southern Moroccan wave unrolls on the flat stone. It needs a consistent swell or high tide coefficients. The quality of the wave depends of the sand silt up. The launching in water and the way out are sometimes hard so look around before jumping in the water – often a lot of people and some stones…

-Mysteries – La Source at 8 km : Risky right according to the sand silt up, starting from a rock vein. Although it can be awesome, the surfers often sulk it. A great opportunity for a quiet surfing session between friends.

-Killer Point 10 km : a long right on the flat stone working in various size and composed of 3 sections :
- the first one, the farther is a large basin- the middle one, much longer than the 1st one is composed of lots of quick sections- the inside, long and hollow, is smaller and steadier.
When the swell is quite heavy (1.50m), those sections can be connected and the wave allows a 300m surfing. From this size, the wave current and power become dangerous and require a very technical surfing.

-Bo & Co 1 : Very pretty spot with rocky flat stones in front of a little cliff, in a gorgeous and deserted place. A good swell is necessary to work, you can also surf at La Pointe and Killer to surf peacefully, the spot is working from 1m without a size limit.
Long right made of hollow sections, the quality and the difficulty of the spot depend on the sand level covering the rocks. Not easy coming in and out the water in high tide. For intermediate surfers.

-Boillers at a 30 minutes  : also known for its sea-urchins, this is a spot that well-receive the swell. Offshore wind, sideshore by a Northern wind, a very good right on the flat stone of the rock. Not many waves, very quickly crowded and can be surfed from low to half-tide. Not easy launching and coming out of the water for those who are not used to rocks, boots are recommended. Reachable for regular level surfing.

-Dracula at a 40 minutes : Impressive place, incredible right, probably the most powerful of all, reserved for very good surfers, can handle heavy swells, difficult launching, and uncertain coming out of the water.

-Tamri at a 45 minutes drive:  A beach break that takes well the swell in little condition days.

And plenty more…

Seasonal conditions

Perfectly exposed for a N/W swell coming down, generated by depressions from Northern Atlantic, the Moroccan coast gets all kind of waves. Thanks to the wind protection in some rocky beach break spots, conditions can turn out fantastic in winter with 1 to 3.50m waves.
From May to September, conditions are more hazardous and less regular but you can have some very good sessions.

In winter, the moderate offshore winds blow N/E giving amazing conditions from October to April. From May to September, the “Chergui”, a warm N/W wind blows and can spoil the quality of the sessions.
Tides vary between 0.6 to 2 meters and may affect the non-profound water spots.
Many sea urchins and rocks – bring boots.
You need a 3/2mm wetsuit from November to April with a water temperature between 16°C and 19°C. From May to October, a swimsuit, a top or a springsuit is sufficient.

Crowd factor and local people

Always an un-crowded spot to be found here. The locals are very friendly, but you have to respect the rules in the water… Everybody says “Hi” and gives a smile and you can ear all languages from round the world in the water!
