Killer Point Spot Guide

About Killer Point

One of the main point breaks in Taghazout and the most open to swell, Killers lies at the centre of Moroccan surfing, and unsurprisingly gets quite crowded. It is a long, powerful right point that can handle the biggest swells, and can be more challenging than Anchors' more groomed lines. A long paddle from the sharp, rocky beach and the current on big swells can make it a chore to get out there. Better surfers and more serious ones will make the paddle to avoid the crowds at Anchors and challenge themselves in the bomb sets. On a good day, barrels can be had in the big, shifty lineup, with long walls and rippable sections.
