Anchor Point

Anchor Point

Morocco’s Most Famous Surf Spot

First surfed by Australians in the 1960’s, this world class break lights up when a medium to large NW swell is present. An endless succession of speed walls and cutback hooks present themselves with a more sandy section down the point offering occasional green rooms. Working well on all tides, it also can give the opportunity to ride back into Taghazout when it is huge.

On the really big days, we watch the guys take off at Anchors, get off and drift in front of our Hash Point apartments, attempt another massive take off and speed you way past Panoramas. Last March of about fifty guys that tried this feat only two managed to pull off all three sections. There is a challenge if ever you needed it. If the point gets busy there is plenty of room to spread out down the sections and enjoy this fine break. Anchor Point the most famous wave in Morocco enjoy the mellow side or the inside with long fast barrels.

How To Get There From The Surf Camp

Anchor point is a short 10 minute walk up the road, or for the more hardcore a 30 minute paddle against the current is also an option!

The Taghazout Surf Season So Far

This year it has been a tale of one spot really, ANCHOR POINT. Having lived in Morocco for 7 years and travelling back and forwards for a few more years, I have noticed a huge difference in how each season’s swells have worked at the points.

30 Days In To Becoming A Surf Instructor

A month ago we arrived, people from all corners of the world centred in this little pocket of Morocco. As a Moroccan newcomer, my first experience of a taxi ride from the airport in a rickety car that was barely holding together, confirmed that this would definitely be a kind of three months different from anything and anywhere else.
