Close to Agadir, you have to possibility to go visiting the souk market, explore the Paradise Valley or enjoy extra activities (horse riding, yoga class, hammam, massage, etc.).
IMSOUANE SURF GUIDING
A long right hander breaks from this small beach, often sheltered from the Northerly winds; it provides an all level wave more consistent at low tide. When you have finished up on this wave you are a 100 meters away from Banana village. This little town is famous for its tajines and very good bananas!
Situated south of a small rocky headland and just 5 minutes drive from our surfhouse in Tamraght, this hollow right hander breaks towards Banana Beach (just the other side is Crocadiles “Crocs”). Great for starters offering punchy lefts and rights with a mainly sandy bottom.
North of Agadir are several spots given their names in km’s by the distance they are from the city. The breaks of 11 and 12, 17, 25. There you’ll find a variety of waves for all levels. Are long and great beaches where after surfing you can take long walks and sunbathing.
A nice beach break often overlooked, but producing some good barrels and less crowded than some other breaks. When there is a huge swell rolling in, the sheltered breach break is a safe place for beginners to learn. There is a right hander point break at the end. One wave to remember, this is Panoramas with its fast hollow sections you are sure to get a good rush at this place, also know as a fantastic spot for beginners on the higher tide.
Very famous spot near Taghazout. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast. Groundswells are more common than windswells and the best swell direction is from the northwest. Best around low tide. A fairly popular wave that can sometimes get crowded. Take care of rocks in the line up.
This shallow reef section sucks up then peels into a nice sandy beach to provide a deceptively long wave with barrels. The right hand section provides a nice ride especially on the incoming high tide, with a larger back section working well on a NW swell. Mysteries, the name says it all! this wave seems to stand any size and holds its shape every time!
Fresh water springs bubble up from the onshore rock formations forming ‘the Well’ providing performance walls and a high lifting A-frame perfect for all levels of surfing abilities. On the push on a small swell the right handers hold up towards the cliffs while the rarer lefts break out towards the beach section. Small reef sections combining with sandy sections provide a clean wave mostly.
If you want to surf big waves, Boilers is your spot. Winds funnel down from the mountains offering large vertical lips and speed wall. This powerful right hander washes into a strong shallow reef. Get ready to scamper across the reef on your way out before the next set hits. Often visited by pro photographers for the intensity of pictures available. Great spot for good surfers.
