Who Knew Morocco Was For Surfers?
For those looking for a little surfing getaway while in North Africa, look no further than Taghazoute, Morocco, a small fishing village in Southern Morocco that has started to gain a big following in the surfing community. Prime surfing season is September through April when you can expect swells from 3 – 15 feet, or for wusses you can come in the summer and ride the bunny hill-like waves.
Matador has the low-down on where to stay, what to eat, and most importantly, where to catch some waves. (Do surfers actually say “Catch some waves”? I have to admit, most of my surfing knowledge comes from the movie “Point Break.” Surfers rob banks to finance their lifestyle too, right?)
