Sahara Surf is a registered surf company based in Taghazout (Tamraght) Morocco, specialised in organising surf trips to all Morocco’s best surfing destinations. Sahara Surf was set up in order to keep doing what we love – going on surf trips, looking for new surf spots, surfing the best waves, and mainly to give our guests with a truly Moroccan surf experience.
We have a reputation for surfing the best waves, qualities of surf that people don’t think exists in Morocco. With over a decade surf guiding and exploring Morocco’s coastline, the experiences and local knowledge of the Sahara Surf team give us the advantage to score the best waves on our coastline on any given day.
Sahara Surf was established by Abdelilah Yafi who has lived on the coast of Agadir from the age of seven. During his ten years professional experience as a surf guide and surf instructor he’s done everything from guiding pros, giving kids and adults their first experiences of surf, to coaching junior surf teams. Holding a UCPA International Surf Instructor qualification with a current Moroccan Civil Protection life saving certificate Abdelilah is fluent in Moroccan Arabic, French and English.
Sahara Surf is truly run by a local and works with local guides and businesses. To find out more about us and the places we go to with our guests log into our Facebook page Sahara Surf.
Situated on the north-west coast of Africa, Morocco is exposed to the frontal lows coming off North America, pumping out solid north and north-west ground swell that charges the Moroccan coastline. While the winter storms in the northern hemisphere give Europe rain, cold temperatures and strong on-shore flow, in Morocco the sun shines and the surf is going off.
The coastline of Morocco looks like it’s been drawn by Picasso with a density of breaks and a variety of surf qualities, providing unreal surf potential. There is more to the surf in Morocco than one may think, from long 500 metre peelers to shallow death defying slabs, there is waves that suit all ability levels. Our knowledge of the Moroccan coastline gives us the advantage to score the best waves with the conditions we have on any given day.
There is surf in Morocco all year round but for those seeking heavy barrels or long carvable peelers the main surf season starts from October to March.
