Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
From El Jadida south, the Central Morocco coast becomes increasingly rugged with more cliffs and headlands and a far greater variety of waves. The northwesterly aspect catches all available swell but the year-round northerly wind flow can blow it out easily. Highlights include the many possibilities along the coast road from El Jadida, through Oualidia and on to Safi, where the first classic, Moroccan righthand points begin. Safi's ?Garden? has been transformed from localised semi-secret spot into the government sponsored ?Surfing Park Sidi Bouzide?. The main highway heads inland from Safi and rejoins the coast in Essaouira, the famous hippie town that Jimi Hendrix tried to buy in the late ?60s. The town is now favoured by windsurfers, because this area suffers from strong cross-shore winds, but there are a few waves around and a good beginners? beach as well. The coastline between Essaouira and Cap Rhir hides many quality reefs, points and beachbreaks, which receive more swell than further south, but also more wind. It's a wild stretch with poor roads leading into tiny fishing villages, although development has already come to Immesouane and the freecampers will soon have to share with the tourists when the new beachfront hotel is built. Although Tamri and Boilers are essentially part of the Taghazout scene, which is only half an hour's drive away, they still benefit from the far better swell exposure that the central coast enjoys. When Killers is struggling to break, Boilers is often head high and Tamri will be even bigger. There's more to find in this area for those willing to look around. Central Morocco is a halfway house between the summery north and the wintery south. Any time from autumn to spring should provide the conditions to ride the headland-protected pointbreaks and get some exposed beach/reef action. It all depends on the strength and direction of the wind because swell size should be no problem.
