Taghazout Surf Spots Morocco
Taghazout Surf Spots Morocco Agadir bay has long beach break and there are different spots that share the same breaks left & rights; this spot just needs a swell of 1.5 to 2 meters any more than this will cause the waves to close out
Here is an awesome wave for the left and right hander, they work in low tide & high tide but just in a swell between 1.5 to 1.7 meters the off shore wind from the south is bad for this spot.
km11 & km12
Two spots have the same break and are lefts. They work in low tide and high tide but it’s very good when the tide starts to go out and the waves become extremely hollow and fast.
South of the village is Banana beach a mediocre beachbreak that we couldn’t bother surfing since most of the waves were either too small or closing out . (Rating 4)
This right hand point break can be find just when you drive into the towns center. It only works well only mid tide, but even then it’s very sectioning. When the swell gets bigger the rip gets quit strong here, so you have to maintain paddling to stay in the right spot. Entry is best north of the break from a little cove just around the break, the current will take you to the line-up very quick. (Rating 5.5)
This right hand point is just north of the town’s center.It can be good on it’s day, but we never really scored it any good. Entry is easy from a little beach. (Rating 6)
This quality spot that can show perfect lines is about 1 km north of Taghazoute town center. It breaks off a pier and can connect all the way into Taghazoute. This break gets seriously crowded, and the level of surfing here is high. The crowds and the fact the the take off area is small make this for intermediate to expert surfers only. Entry is either done by jumping off the rocks, or paddling in from the beach to the right, but then you have to beware of the strong current that can bring you very close to the pier/rocks.

Next to Anchors are several break that can be descent. This place seems to pick up more swell than the other spots, but will also start closing out over 5′. Entry is from the beach. Beware that it can be shallow at lower tide.
This is one of the best waves in the area. It’s about 3 km out of Taghazoute so it takes about 30 minutes to walk to this place. Once there prepare yourself for a long paddle to the line-up. It will easily take a fit surfer 10-15 minutes to paddle (it took me longer). The wave is a very long right hander, and on the right day it can be almost perfect. It picks up a fair bit of swell, and can hold waves up to 12′. You need to be fit for the paddle then though. Make sure you have a good leash, because from mid to high tide (when it’s best) there’s nowhere to swim to when you lose your board. The spot is supposedly named after the killer whales that are sometimes seen there. (Rating 9)
Getting to Boilers takes about 25 minutes by car from Taghzaoute. Boilers is a right hand break, that breaks off something that looks like the remaining off a shipwreck. It’s a relatively short but fast and barreling type wave. Getting in the water is a bit tricky since it’s best done from behind the big rock that is sticking out of the water, but when you are behind it you cannot see if there are any set waves coming, so assistance from the water or land is helpfully. Getting out of the water can be tricky since the rock close to shore are sharp. The wind can be blowing force 6 offshore when there’s hardly a breeze at Taghazoute only 20 minutes away.
Another 20 minutes up the coast there are long stretches of beach that pick up most swell when all the other spots are flat. Getting in and out of the water is hard, since here are lots of very sharp rocks. (Rating 5.5)
Further north you can probably find more breaks, but finding access to them is the hardest bit. South of Essaouira are some more surf spots but they are often blown out.
The beaches of Agadir can occasionally be good, but water quality is questionable.
