Surfing Cote des Basques/Taghazout ‎ - 2013/11/10 17:36 Just leaving Morocco, after a month of surfing Cote des Basques, France and Taghazout, Morocco. Observations: don't think it ever got under 6 - 8 feet! Duh, it is the North Atlantic in winter and all those huge storms (Victory at Sea) push massive amounts of swell. In skiing they post signs: (Expert Only) Black Diamond - Double Black Diamonds - Death seekers ... Not only is it big, its narly with 10 feet of tidal push. Boilers in Tag-a-zoot is a prime example, try scrambling down a cliff, on a crumbly dirt goat track, with a few strategically placed broken glass bottles; then hide behind a big rock and trust someone to give you the thumbs up that there are no sets coming. OK now jump off the rocks and paddle over some exposed rocks, between the rusting ships engine boiler and the reef outcrop. Now paddle like hell, duck dive, paddle like hell, duck dive, now you are in the current getting swept down the coast onto another reef. OK you make it out back OMG here comes a close out set ... Catch a FEW waves, want to come in, LOL and you thought getting out was fun! Slip and slide on sea weed and very sharp rocks ... did I mention the Sea Urchins ... ouch! You get the picture. Next stop Tel Aviv, maybe I can find some nice small fun longboard waves LOL

Re:Surfing Cote des Basques/Taghazout ‎ - 2013/11/27 21:11 Yeah, the points at Taghazout can get very tricky and the rivermouth at Tamri offers a +500m ride if you can get throu the shorebreak without snapping the board.
