Our Central Morocco Surf Tour will take you along 500km of stunning coast between Safi 320km to the north and Sidi Ifni 150km to the south while Surfing in Morocco. On this trip you’ll take in more than the classic point breaks of Taghazout – not only will you stay and surf where the best conditions are for that day but you’ll also get to see and experience more of Morocco. Morocco’s crowned point break Safi is on the menu, if the swell is right for it, we will not hesitate to give it a go.
Surfing in Morocco
Situated on the north-west coast of Africa, Morocco is exposed to the frontal lows coming off North America, pumping out solid north and north-west ground swell that charges the Moroccan coastline. While the winter storms in the northern hemisphere give Europe rain, cold temperatures and strong on-shore flow, in Morocco the sun shines and the surf is going off.
The coastline of Morocco looks like it’s been drawn by Picasso with a density of breaks and a variety of surf qualities, providing unreal surf potential. There is more to the surf in Morocco than one may think, from long 500 metre peelers to shallow death defying slabs, there is waves that suit all ability levels. Our knowledge of the Moroccan coastline gives us the advantage to score the best waves with the conditions we have on any given day.
There is surf in Morocco all year round but for those seeking heavy barrels or long carveable peelers the main surf season starts from October to March.
Taghazout is a well known surf destination. Taghazout village is located 16km north of Agadir in the biggest bay in Morocco. Taghazout offers unreal surf – Anchor Point, Mysteries, Killer Point, Draculas and Boilers are the famous surf spots along this stretch of coast. In the main surf season 80% of the surfers who come to Morocco stay in Taghazout, this means the point breaks and the village get very busy. There are other point breaks and spots north and south of Taghazout, so tripping a bit further out you’ll surf un-crowded spots and take in the unspoilt landscapes and traditional culture of Morocco.
Sidi Ifni is 120km south of Agadir, the road down to Sidi Ifni is the gateway to the Sahara. A picturesque little costal village, Sidi Ifni was built by the Spanish during their colonisation. Their influence is apparent in the white and blue of the buildings, a contrast to the typical reds and pinks in other parts of Morocco. Here there is great surf potential with a lot of secret spots North and South.
Getting To Morocco
These surf trips start from Agadir. To get here you can either fly directly into Agadir airport, which is well served by budget airlines from across Europe, or you can fly into Marrakech, which has a greater range of direct flights. We recommend using Momondo or Sky Scanner to find the best flight options.
Transfers to and from Agadir airport and bus station are included in all packages. Marrakesh airport transfers are included for groups of four people or more.
If you have a EU, US, Canada, AUS or NZ Passport then, so long as your visit is for no more than ninety days a visa is not needed. Your passport must be valid for three months from the date of entry into Morocco. South Africans will need a visa – you can get this from your nearest Moroccan Embassy.
Travel Insurance is essential and you are responsible for making sure you have adequate travel and health cover for your stay in Morocco. We do not accept any responsibility for surf injuries, loss or damage to property during surf trips.
Activity Level: Challenging
This trip is suited to intermediate to advanced surfers. If you’re not a good surfer, you will still have an amazing time but will not be able to take advantage of the amazing, often remote waves that we will be searching.
