We hit the road in search of waves!

Taghazout, whilst renowned for its pumping point breaks is actually quite a sheltered part of the Moroccan coastline facing south, south-west, so it takes either a westerly swell or a big northerly swell to wrap around the points and light them up. With this in mind, the gappy team headed to Sidi Ifni, a former spanish port a good 3 hours drive south of Agadir, hunting down the surf.

What we found down there was everything we could have hoped for. A cute little hostel to stay in, but more important big wide vast open beaches with perfect chest to head high waves and a gentle offshore wind! Sure the current’s were a bit stronger than those we get in Taghazout, but all of those sessions up at Tamri and paddling races have been done for a reason, preparation for the good days.

Here is a little video that Asher made for the trip. It is only short, but given that this is a Gappy that couldn’t surf before he arrived in Morocco in September, it is pretty awesome to see him pumping along these waves!
