Heading to one of our awesome surf camp Morocco holidays is the perfect escape anytime of the year, but in winter the coastline roars into action as Atlantic swells wrap in towards the coast and provide incredible waves for all levels of surfers.
Overhead swells bend around point
breaks providing leg burning rides for intermediate and advanced surfers and
coves and beaches provide fun peaks for beginners to the sport.
It’s not just the world-class and user friendly waves that
make a Morocco surf
holiday so appealing to surfers the world over. It’s the infectious and
friendly atmosphere that the locals exude, delicious cuisine such as tagines,
their vibrant cultural history, one-of-a-kind
excursions and activities and of course, the weather!
You can jump on a plane in the UK, wrapped up in your winter
attire, and three hours later you’ll be grabbing your board in your standard
tee, shorts, flip flops summer combo.
Recently ‘Storm Doris’ battered northern Europe, it lit up
big wave spots such as Nazare
in Portugal and Mullaghmore
in Ireland, yet the rest of Europe had unfavourable wind conditions and erratic
swell. This massive low pressure system headed south and during its journey
began to groom and shape itself before landing at the Safi where it produced
some of the best waves of the season, perfect overhead walls groomed by a light
offshore wind and framed by picture perfect blue sky. You can watch the
highlights of the swell below.
Another wave that have been firing since the start of 2017
has been Anchor Point, this legendary wave is known for its exceptionally long
walls that can last up to half a kilometre, if your legs are up to it. Anchor
Point is just a short walk from many of our Morocco surf camps and it’s just not just Anchor Point that
is a big hit with local and travelling surfers here.
The area has roughly ten
kilometres of coastline to play in, with one of the biggest drawing points
being that in this relatively small space there are a plethora of waves that
are suited to all levels of surfers. If you want big barrels, they’re here, if
you want mellow long board walls, that’s here too.
Recently members of the Rip Curl European grom team headed
to Tagazhout and shredded the surrounding waves, see them in action below.
Pack your 3/2 (that’s all you will need during the winter
months) and head off on one of our Morocco surf camps to score unbelievable
waves in some of the most culturally rich surroundings you can be in, grab a
barrel and a mint tea for us!
