Surfspots


Imsouane: The Point/Bay

The Imsouane Pointbreak is one of the longest rights Morocco has to offer. On good days the 700m waves takes you to the last beach of the bay. A little extra: the wave works over sandy bottom.

The wave works best at low tide and shows the best of its skills during low spring tide. The spot needs really big swell to work at high tide.
The wide N to ZW swell window picks up lots of availible swell. The waves wrap around the reeflike peninsula and enter the bay as clean waves. When other spots in this part of Morocco can’t handle the big and heavy NW swell, the bay is still surfable.
Going in and out of the water couldn’t be easier. You can walk and peddle out protected by the harbour wall. On bigger days you can jump of the reef behind the wall where the currents in the deeper water suck you towards the peak.

The only downside you might encounter are the rips near the peak. Don’t worry they will only take you inside the bay. You need to peddle a little to stay in place, but as soon as you catch a nice wave you get a nice long ride to the beach. Just take a walk back to the harbour wall and go for another ride. At low tide you just walk on the sand, if you plan on surfing longer untill incomming tide, you might want to wear booties to walk on the rocks.

The best wind direction for the Point is NE, even when the stronger N-winds start blowing because of the heat, the spot is sheltered and still receives clean waves. After heavy storms the bank can be pretty steep providing some hollow sections along the wave. If you combine this with spring tide you get one of those magic days. If the bay is loosing its pump due to incomming tide, you might want to check out la Cathédrale.




Imsouane: La Cathédrale

La Cathédrale is a westerly oriented bay, it always catches a bit more swell but is less sheltered from the winds. The spot works best from early mid to early high tide and from dropping hightide to early low tide. This makes it a spot that works pretty often.

The wave starts working from the rocky point and runs along the sandy beach. You might encounter some rocks but it’s only a 1% chance.

The point works best with 1,5m swell and holds up to 3m max. To peddle out stay close to the rocks and the current will suck you out.

At hightide the same bay offers a nice beachbreak in the center of the bay near Planet Surf and near the rivermouth (that hardly ever has water runing) .

The south side of the bay offers a small fast reefbreak.

The ideal wind direction is E. N and NW winds provide choppy waves!

At low tide check the Point.
