Spot on Focus: Killing it at Killer Point

About Killer Point

Killer Point was given its name due to the bi-annual migration of killer whales (Orca) heading past Morocco. Twice a year, if lucky surfers are sitting on the water at just the right moment, they can get an experience of a lifetime with these creatures. But for the rest of the year, it’s popular for another reason – it’s waves.

And this winter we haven’t been let down. Killer’s is just a 20-minute walk from Surf Maroc, and is one of our most consistent point breaks in the area. Short lefts and sectioning rights peak in front of the dramatic cliffs when the swell in small on low tide. But as the swell gets bigger, surfers find epic vertical walls at the point to find perfect barrels and hard sections. And even at high tide, due to the protection from the Northerly winds, the inside section fires up with a good swell too.

What does it look like?

It’s no surprise that locals often walk past a busy Anchors and find only half the number enjoying this amazing point break. No doubt surfers have been having a lot of fun out there, as our friend Bert from My Sessions has been capturing. Just check out some of his photos below from just last week!
