Roof House Taghazout offers you the opportunity to spend a week surfing in the best surfing region in Morocco. Taghazout is famous for its long-running winter surf culture, with various surf spots and the best conditions for all levels of surfers. Here, you can join 5 surf lessons or just have 5 days of guided surf. Additionally, accommodations, meals, and surf equipment are all included, so you just have to bring your surf spirit to the beach.
Roof House Taghazout has 2 private double rooms which are perfect for couples or people who prefer to stay in a hotel room styled bed. There is also 4-bed dorm and 6-bed dorm, perfect for groups who want to have a familiar place to stay and enjoy the Moroccan lifestyle. Additionally, all rooms include fresh sheets and room service to clean the floor every day.
Besides surfing, you will have a day trip to visit a zouk.
The Roof House Taghazout is located right in the heart of Taghazout, a small Berber fishing town on the Atlantic coast. Taghazout is famous for its outstanding surf, especially during the winter months. The water at Taghazout is at 16 or 18 degrees for most of the year.
Within walking distance, you can reach several best surf spots, such as Anchor Point, Killer Point, Dog Steps, Hash Point, Mysteries, and La Source. Otherwise, there are much more spots around Taghazout that can be easily reached by bus or taxi, such as Imsouane, Tamri, or Sidi Ifni.
Within 5-minute walking, you will reach one of Morocco’s premier waves. The anchor Point is a long right-hand point break that works best on a low. It takes over 4 feets to work and holds over 15 feets, with its best on a northwesterly swell with southeasterly winds. Additionally, the area was named by Jimmy Hendrix in 1967 due to the anchors which had been left from earlier times.
Killer point is named after the killer whales which are sometimes found basking off the point. The swell is always bigger than Anchor point and works from knee to overhead. Since the point has a powerful right, it is better not to get caught inside as the caves and reefs seem to get very close as you are sucked across the front of them.
Popular with beginners when small, this right-hander breaks over sand and into Banana Beach. However, when the swell is pumping, it can be a world class wave. Additionally, this spot is only a minute on foot from the hostel.
Just a minute walk from the hostel, you can reach the great Hash point. The waves work best for you if you do not have the time to leave the village of Taghazout or if you are too lazy to walk to the Anchor point. On a good day, the spot can provide a fun wedgy righthander.
Mysteries can be found 100 meters away with just 10-minute walking, located in the north of Anchor point. The waves break over a rock reef and work from 2 to 6 feets, best surfed on a low-mid tide. This spot is suitable for intermediate and advanced surfers. However, you need to watch out for the close out set which seems to happen with no reason when the Atlantic Ocean is pumping.
The natural spring which rises through the rocks on the high tide line gives the wave La Source as its name. It works from 2 to 6 feets and is best surfed on a low-mid tide giving both lefts and rights. Additionally, argan trees can be found on the site.
During the surf camp, you will have daily breakfast. One big rooftop barbecue will be also included in the price.
When traveling by bus, you have a choice either to take the more expensive tourist buses or you can check out the local bus station and get a ticket there like the locals do which will take more time.
