Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
Despite being in Africa, Morocco has always been an extension of the European surf trail. With 2900km (1813mi) of coastline (the southern 1100km (688mi) of coastline is disputed since the 1975 Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara) located at the ideal latitude, and a perfect NW exposure, travellers have been hitting the Agadir area for decades, soaking up the desert sun and riding clean pointbreaks. However, when driving south from Europe, there's plenty of epic breaks to check out on the way, like Dar Bouazza, Oued Cherrat or inside Rabat's jetties when the swell is firing. Despite the proximity of major cities, the North Coast waves rarely gets crowded. Local waveriders are the happy-fews who can afford a board; French ex-pats or those who benefit from the support of King Mohammed VI. Morocco fires in the northern hemisphere winter, but the rest of the year favours the north coast, as it's more consistent and less windy than the Agadir area. The construction of a major highway between Tangier and Rabat gives more options to check less known spots in between although much of it is a straight sandy beach.
