Taghazout Round Up From Surf Berbere

Building work, gappies and finally some swell!

Taghazout News From Surf Berbere

The last couple of months have been pretty full on for our guys. We’ve been flat out trying to get our cafe running like a dream with a brand new set of terraces, kicked off another sold out gappy course, and busily preparing another apartment in the Bouad House.

The Cafe Is Looking Mzuena

The cafe has been the main priority for the last couple of months and the side terrace is starting to look absolutely sensational, the concrete flooring with traditional tiles, wooden pergola from reclaimed timbers and even the garden at the back is starting to take shape (although the guys are struggling to differentiate between the weeds and the plants that we actually want to grow).

Another Sold Out Gappy Course Gets Started!

This year we have Ivo taking the gappy course and he got off to an absolute flyer! Moroccan belly got him in his first week and wiped him out, he’s since recovered and helped guide a cracking bunch for the last month. Because we haven’t had a huge amount of swell in Taghazout, the guys have been hitting Tamri hard and it is showing in their surfing, they are making crazy good progress (more than any other group we’ve ever had), so we’re quietly confident that with assessments still 5 weeks off, the guys are in great shape!

Bouad House & Taghazout Building Work

Finally to the Bouad House! It wouldn’t be Taghazout if there wasn’t a real building project underway, oh the sweet sound of a hammer banging away through the night as someone is doing an illegal extension away from the watchful eyes of the authorities! Whelp, we are nearly there with our newest apart, we’ve got a pretty similar floor layout to the Bouad 3 Bed apartment, but instead we’ve split it into two.

Part one is a simple double bedroom ensuite room with it’s own private access. Part two, is a two double bedroom apartment with a twist. The back bedroom has a funky single bed bunked over the top of the double. We’ve stolen some riad in Marrakech’s designs and tried to make it our own and time will tell if it looks anything like the original (or…… even better!). Either way, it’s mid way to being done and we’re just getting very excited by tile patterns as they go in!
