Morocco is a land just waiting for Adventure, but you need to be prepared, or at least be able to get to the adventure first. I travel with Abdililiah, from Sahara Surf. He is a one man band, just like me, so can put in all the effort needed to get you to the waves, whatever that takes.
He knows his way around the coast of Morocco, this has been his life for the past 10 years. he also surfs pretty damn well too, so he knows what he is talking about when it comes to waves.
Like this FAST right hander not so far off the tarmac, but we were the only guys here, so definitely worth the 4 x 4 approach.
Searching for waves requires some effort and commitment, you sometimes have to drive away from a good spot, to get to a less crowded one, and of course sometimes your plans do not come off, but I feel that this is worth the risk, as there is nothing better than surfing good waves without a crew.
There are few things as good as driving down a long beach to check out the mini point at the end, even if you do have to get out a push every now and again!! Not Really, Abs has a Toyota 4 x 4 so getting stuck did not really happen, just lighten the load and use the “super low” ratio and off we go again.
Adventure is really what you make of it, and in Morocco, Wave Hunting is all about the correct planning, and gear, and with an open and positive mind, and a local who knows where to be and when….. and you will score. I enjoyed myself soooo much, I am already planning my next trip.
