Heavy and fast be careful and only surf if the locals are out - they now this place best. The surf club will charge you and you must take a guide which can be expensive. Find the locals and chat to them. Moroccan champion surfs here and he’s very happy - sings while he surfs!
The best place to leave kit is with a little guy next to the telegraph pole at the start of the pier (locals leave bags with him and he’s friendly and trustworthy - give him a few dirham and he will smile a lot! The life guards/fire service who are generally on the harbour wall are around all day and blow whistles if they want attention - ask them about the tides and dangers in the water. Locals are friendly and happy to surf with anyone they will show you where is best if you ask nicely! - Many couples around and be careful wearing shorts to the beach - very Muslim.
Right under the prayer towers of the “kabutze” - not far from the hostel in Rabat (which is recommended) easy to find and very welcoming - over the harbour wall is a sandy beginners wave which gets rippy as the tide drops, a couple of peaks here and also on the other side of the estuary at Sale (another city).
