Anchor Point is a delicious right point break that looks easier than you think. Around Taghazout, there are many other spots where you can surf. For each level. These breaks are in the immediate area (= walking distance) from Tamraght or Taghazout banana village

ANCHOR POINT


        This is probably the most famous Moroccan surf spot due to its clean lines and consistency on all tides. It starts working at about 3ft and holds up to 15ft. This surf break is a mix of sand and reef bottom with 3 different sections where you can go for cover-ups and turns at the first two sections and the last one just gets quite hollow and fast. It can be a long wave of about 300m to 500m. It’s definitely a “To Do” wave at Pro Surf Morocco 

KILLERS POINT


          One of Morocco’s best point break and considered the most consistent of all the point breaks in the Taghazout area. This 300m long wave has a lot to offer from speed sections, bowl sections, and barrels. During low tide on small swells, the waves start at the north end of the cliff and it provides a short left and sectioning right. When the swell picks up, vertical walls provide barrels and very hollow sections.
It can be a long paddle if the tide is not low enough to walk along the cliff to get to the first sections.

LA SOURCE


          This is an accessible and funny wave to ride for all surfers, especially on rising and falling tides. Small reef sections combining with sandy sections provide a clean wave of about 50m to 150m. Its name comes from freshwater springs bubbling up from onshore rock formations. This point is right in front of La Source Surf Camp & Surf School. Put up your wetsuit and paddle to the line up right from the backyard!

MYSTERIES


          This is one of another world-class right-hander just 110m north of Anchor Point, on the next beach stretch. The take-off zone is on a reef break and is fairly more accessible than some other points in the area. On its good days, it can reach about 260m long with barrels but it cannot handle a very large swell – it closes out over 2m.
Mysteries can get hollow and fast though as well, suitable for intermediates and advanced surfers. One of the most fun and rippable waves in the area!

PANORAMAS


         Panoramas is a right-hander, with a sand bottom that breaks on a big beach.
This makes it the perfect spot for beginners, but only during high tide.
When it’s more than 5 ft, Panorama’s can be a very fast and barreling when the swell and the winds take the right direction. Then it becomes a good break for intermediate to advanced surfers.
There’s always a good atmosphere on this beach as well because a lot of people chose this place to soak up some sun and surf the Moroccan waves in a friendly atmosphere.

DEVIL'S ROCK


         Right next to Banana Pointbreak, this spot can be crowded because of its consistency and proximity to the village. Although there’s plenty of room to spread out or just avoid rush hours and you can get some fun surf sessions.… It’s a perfect break for all levels, and one of the favorites for surf teaching, since it offers a big diversity of waves from rights on low tide, left and right on high tide. It holds up perfectly till 1,5m.
This wave is a beach break, but under the sand, there are rocks occasionally according to the swell season.

BANANA BEACH


          Banana Point is located near the village of Aourir, also called Banana village due to the many banana plantations that are grown in the river bed facing the spot.
It’s a long right-hander point break with no current ideal for all levels!
Sometimes you might get surprised by its quality and length.

The Kms


          These spots were given their names in km by the distance they are from Agadir.
Km11 is one of the few lefts on the Taghazoutbay area (good news for goofy!). On its good days, you’ll get a hollow take off with a little barrel section on a reef to end up with a fun section on the beach.
Km 12 is a reef break that breaks as an A-frame with a perfect left and right. It has an entire reef bottom, but deep enough and slow waves to be a good spot for intermediate surfers. Km 12 can hold a decent size swell and is more consistent than km 11. It’s a good spot for starting to work on your first cuties on the left. The right-hander really has more walls and is not as easy as the left.

ANZA SURF SPOTS


          Anza in Central Morocco is a fairly exposed beach break and reef Breaks that has fairly consistent surf. Winter is the favored time of year for surfing here and in the summertime, we offer surf lessons these waves are perfect for beginners and intermediate surf level. Offshore winds are from the northeast. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northwest. The beach breaks consist of rights. Even when there are waves, it’s not likely to be crowded. The water quality here is rather suspect. Anza has 5 different surf breaks from the right and left-handers from beach and reef surf spots

BOILERS


          A shipwreck gave the name to this break, where you can see the boiler of a boat at the start of the wave. This is probably the trickiest and spectacular break around, often visited by pro photographers for the intensity of pictures taken!
Recommended for experienced surfers due to its very strong and fast right-hander that ends up onto a strong shallow reef. The wave can have tubular sections if it’s more than 6 ft and it can reach up to 400m long, but better be fast if you want to connect all the sections there.
Don’t venture if you are not sure about what you are doing or if you’re not with a local Pro Surf Morocco guide to tell you where the sea urchins are or where to get in the water. Still, get ready to hurry across the reef on your way out before the next set hits.
After all, said, it’s well worth it and one of the most exciting waves in the Taghazout area!!

DESERT POINT


          Unlike most of the other breaks, this one is well known for its inconsistency and strong currents. Therefore, it’s normally empty! Though, it is famous for the endless right-hander and offshore winds that can really produce a perfect wave! Just like the majority of the other points in the area, it’s a point break that breaks at low tide and starts working at 4 ft and holds up to 500m long. If you want to ride it just ask our instructors the time to do it. We know when it’s working!

DEVIL'S ROCK


         Right next to Banana Pointbreak, this spot can be crowded because of its consistency and proximity to the village. Although there’s plenty of room to spread out or just avoid rush hours and you can get some fun surf sessions.… It’s a perfect break for all levels, and one of the favorites for surf teaching, since it offers a big diversity of waves from rights on low tide, left and right on high tide. It holds up perfectly till 1,5m.

DRACULA'S


         Sharp vertical rocks like vampire’s teeth give its name to this point break, one of the most demanding for advanced surfers. Prepare yourself for a tricky paddle out and in.
With a northerly big swell, Dracula’s can be one of the most perfect point breaks in

HASH POINT


         This is a well know spot just because it is located right in the middle of the village of TaghazoutBay. Hash Point got its name over people being lazy from smoking too much so that wouldn’t be bothered to walk up to Anchor Point.
What was once a perfect point break, now its bottom got covered with sand and became a fast right-hander working well with a medium to large swell when the sand lines up well off the rocks. Though it’s still fun and easy for beginners which makes it a favorite spot for schools to hit the lineup.
The fact is that because it is in the center of Taghazout means that it is so easy to reach and that you will always find yourself having a relaxed session on it.

TAMRI


        Tamri Beach is the most consistent surf spot ever. When it’s flat everywhere else, we make the drive north till Tamri. Even in summertime, it’s where the local surfers from the Area of TaghazoutBay and Agadir can still get some fun surf. If the sandbanks are good, Tamri can be a pretty good beach break as well. But most of all, it works on different tides, depending on the sandbanks and on the swell. Very reliable and appropriate to all levels.
Besides all that, it’s truly a wonderful spot, an estuary home to camels and flamingos.

THE BAY


        This is the most popular spot of Imessouane. The sandbanks make it perfect for beginners. The surf here is best at low tide, with a right-handed break that starts at the harbor and ends at the hills for a 600 meters ride!
Our surf guides are local surfers with precise knowledge of the swell, tides, winds, and bottoms ready to take you directly to the most appropriate spot for you.
This area has been one of the major surfing destinations for both experienced and beginner surfers from all around the world because of its well-known swell consistency and perfect waves discovered in the ’60s by America GIs from the military base of Kenitra. The best surfing season in Morocco is during the Wintertime, from September until April due to the bigger swells caused by the storms on the North Atlantic Ocean.

THE CATHEDRAL


       Starting on a beach break with several rights and left peaks, and ends on a reef which provides a perfect break (left-handed). Good at high tide or mid-high tide when the swell is less than 5/6 feet, and the point at low tide when the swell is over 5 feet.
