This spot is the best in Morocco, its surfed by famous surfers like Tom Carrol and Gary Elkerton. Tom said that the Garden is one of the tops spots in the world...
Not a good scene with locals, but when its very big the crowds thin out and the surfing gets great.
VERY VERY GOOD

get your immunisations before surfing here - The water is dirty and my friend caught typhoid after we surfed here. I had been immunised and got mildly ill for a couple of days. He ended up in hospital! Oh, the wave was great, with pretty aggressive locals who would drop in, and then shout at you to get off their wave etc.

safi uranium site - incase you were wondering what the ugly factory was processing in safi town,it's URANIUM, a very toxic substance,dont swallow the water or eat the fish,anyone who has stayed in safi will have noticed how friendly the people are but also the high number of lunatics walking the streets,i put this down to the uranium factory causing mental illness,like something out of xfiles.if you dont believe me,google it

First surf in Safi - Hey Roland,Sorry, man…just for information and truth, I am the first guy who surfed Safi (in 1982…I have no merit for that; just a lot of luck) … I surfed Safi alone two years along before my best friend Henri El Grichi and the others.See you later…may be in the Réunion Island or in…Safi Luc Soutif
