Taroudante – Surfing is one of the challenging sports that demands skills and physical efforts.
Yet, for beginners, there are some places in the world that turns this demanding sport into a very enjoyable experience for the advantageous factors they afford, such as warm water, soft waves, easy access, and loads of expert help.
With nearly 3,500 miles of diverse beautiful coastline, Morocco, which stands as an ideal haven for any surfer, is ranked third five best places to learn to surf in the world.
According to GrindTv, the worldwide leader in adventure, action sports, lifestyle and travel, the Moroccan town of Taghazout in the southern city of Agadir is ranked third after Waikiki, in Hawaii and Surfer’s Point, in Barbados respectively.
Taghazout “offers a mix of easy beach-breaks a short walk from town and more challenging sand-bottom points just up the road,” the GrindTV said.
Though the surfing sports “used to be chaos,”, which has been “a mini-hippy surf city since the early ’70s”, the town gained reputation recently as the best resort for surfers, said Abdullah Aitdir in Taghazout.
In winter, because of the cold and the wind, the European costliness don’t offer good conditions for wave riding. The quality of waves, pleasant climate, geographical proximity to Europe, and exciting waves that pound its Atlantic coastline turn Morocco into a destination for professional surfers.
Surfing in Morocco is increasingly gaining popularity and many “surf camps” with courses and accommodation packages sold by travel agencies have been installed in the coastlines of the kingdom.
Abdullah Aitdir has converted his father’s grocery store in the nearby village of Taghazout, into a surf school offering lessons and practical help for beginner surfers to enjoy the smooth waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
