Surf Spots on Focus with Laila: Tamri and Anza

Monday 22nd July 2019

If you come by Surf Maroc, at some point you will see a gorgeous, tanned, smiling Moroccan girl laughing away with big blonde hair. That’s our Laila, our bright, bubbly Girls Surf Maroc Surf Instructor. You’ll see her carting around our Girls Week gals to the best surf spots and fun excursions. And whenever she can, Laila’s out there with them catching waves and having fun.

You can see us catching up with her in between running around, we heard about her two summer surf spots:


‘We go to Tamri, which is 30 minutes from Taghazout up North’ – Laila


Character: Peaky beach break
Seabed: Sand
Best tide: Low to Mid
Wind direction: South Easterly
Swell range: 1 – 4 ft
Surfer: All Levels

Just a 30-minute drive north along the coast, often passing herds of camels, you will come over a lip and see the expanse of Tamri. Located at the mouth of an ‘oued’ irrigating banana plantations, this ultra-consistent beach-break is the go when Taghazout is smaller.

Here you will find quick back sections before an even, consistent beach push. Sometimes it delivers mellow waves, others times it’s known to be throwing fun sand bars and strong currents. Beginners must be aware of how far you drift along the coast. And for the more experienced surfers, there is normally a great left-hander off the sandbank in front of the cliffs.

‘Anza is only a 10-minute drive from Taghazout. It’s an amazing point break and beach break at the same time, and at the moment we have amazing waves and we’re in the middle of the summer’ – Laila


Character: Sandbar and small point break
Seabed: Sand and some rocks
Best tide: High
Wind direction: South Easterly
Swell range: 3 – 10 ft
Surfer: All Levels


Just 10 minutes south of Taghazout, you will reach a small beach town beside Agadir. With the huge mosaic sign ‘Anza’, it’s hard to miss this beach! This is a fairly exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf that works all year round for all levels.

For beginners, there is a nice, large beach break with good power to get up on the whitewash for a good ride! For the improvers and intermediates out the back, there is a peaky, steep left which sits on a reef, and a mellower, pealing right on the sand. 

Although for surfing it’s best on high tide, it’s worth sticking around for low-tide to walk out on the rocks and see actual dinosaur footprints! Apparently, there are about 200 footprints in the area – see if you can catch them all!
