5 Convincing Facts About When To Surf Morocco

When To Surf Morocco

Let’s go to Morocco! Whether that statement has been made after a few too many pints one night, or it’s a well-thought-out declaration, surfing in Morocco is always a good idea.

While you can find great waves in places like Hawaii’s famed Waimea Bay, what you’ll find here are great open spaces, a unique culture, fantastic food, and friendly people with a passion for sharing their country.

Besides all that, you’ll never see a camel running down the beach in Hawaii! Surfing in Morocco provides that along with a fragrant tagine dinner and so much more.

The Question Then Is: When To Surf Morocco?

Thanks to its location along the Atlantic coast, with consistent waves, Morocco is truly a year-round surf destination. However, if you are looking for some truly exciting waves, the best surf season is during autumn and winter. While October through April is the height of the wave season, the waves start to fire at the beginning of September, giving us another month.

Surf camps come to life during the winter months, with surfers seeking out the best wave. No matter your skill level, you can find the perfect surf spots for you.

The Search For The Best Surf Spots For Epic Swells Is Real

For a beginner, it is possible to start at square one and learn surfing in Morocco. For advanced surfers, you will find swells you’ll never forget. In between all that, you’ll eat delicious food and meet great people with a similar love for outdoor adventure.

If your travel schedule is limited to the summer months, it’s best to hire a guide to ensure that you have an amazing surf trip. A local guide with in-depth knowledge of the best surf spots will get you out to the best summer waves in North Africa. We have excellent Moroccan discovery trips that combine active exploring with glorious summer days of surfing.

Chasing 70 Degrees

During the mild winter months, temps in the area of Essaouira bay average a low of 55 F and an average high of 67 F. Further south, in the Taghazout area, you’ll find an average low temperate of 54 F and an average high of 70 F – just about perfect!

Immerse yourself in the culture of Morocco by spending some time in the small towns and villages. If you are staying at one of the surf camps in the Taghazout area, take a day trip out Paradise Valley on the Tamraght River. The milder temperatures in the winter months provide the perfect opportunity for short hikes in the area.

Getting Off The Well Worn Path
