Monster Swells, New Gappies and Solar Water Heating

It's been a busy couple of months in Taghazout, but waves galore

It is often the way in the January course that the first couple of months of the course a baptism of fire, at least the guys doing the course get a good chance to see what they are aspiring too (double overhead monsters at Anchors…. 🙂

Here are a few highlights from the last couple of weeks (including a couple of shots that got Hannes MSW photo of the day):

Oh, and we finally managed to install some solar water heating systems for both the surf camp and the Bouad House, sexy and environmentally friendly!

Anchor Point, Still Got It

Anchor’s is still arguably the best spot in Morocco. We have spent hours and hours debating this over and over again. Sure it is pretty hard to look beyond Safi’s barrels (see the blog “Land Of The Perfect Rights” if you don’t know what I am talking about), or even the sheer length of ride that we were able to get up at Draculas last April.
