Stormrider Description

There can be few harsher places on the planet than Southern Morocco where the Sahara desert meets the Atlantic. Stretching for 600kms from Agadir to the disputed border with Western Sahara and then another 800kms down to Mauritania, this is a large, empty wilderness. Surfing locations are dictated by where the roads hit the coast at towns like Sidi Ifni, Tan Tan, Tarfaya and Dakhla. The coast faces due NW and has little problem picking up swell, but it really does suffer from strong, northerly trades, especially from spring to autumn. Morning offshores are a possibility but the land heats up so quickly there is only a couple of hours? window to surf before the sea breezes blow onshore. Sidi Ifni is in easy striking distance from Agadir and has some good waves, although pollution can destroy the experience. Down the 4x4 tracks to the south there are a few fickle points to be found but travelling times are long, roads and maps are often confusing and finding these breaks is a real mission. Things get even more difficult as the main road heads inland and trackless desert falsely promises to reveal the coast over the next rise. Also, long tranches of coast are sea cliffs and have no access to the sea. Not for the unprepared or faint-hearted. From the border of Western Sahara down to Dakhla, the road shadows the coast, but the Canary Isles effectively block most of the NW swell from this stretch. Dakhla has a range of reefs and beaches and is the most accessible surf along this desert coast. Once again, winter is the go for many reasons. This area is a long way from the Atlantic storms so it needs the big ones to get going properly. The winds are lightest in winter and hopefully more NE in direction, but most importantly, the land temperatures are bearable in winter, averaging 29°C in Dakhla as opposed to 39°C and hotter in summer.
