In the bight of Essaouira, former Mogador, I get acquainted with one of the first Wind Tools kitesurfing materials. Soufiane Hamani was 13 when he sets out his first kiteboard steps and later became a pro-kitesurf rider. Maroc has more than 2.000 km of kiteable shores. Combine in Maroc the harsh living conditions with beautiful nature and windswept kitespots.
HIGHLIGHTS TO REMEMBER
Sidi Kaouki - Essaouira - Moulay Bouzarktoum - Dahkla
Wind is picking up from may on till September. When the sun is heating up the desert planes a thermal effect arise and pushes the wind towards the cold Atlantic seawater.
The Atlantic swells can be big. The moroccan shore can be rough. Imagine yourself in between them and you know that you will get your waves you were looking for.
FOOD & TRAVELLING
Exotic tastes, weird odors and unfamiliar neighbourhoods. Maroc is a mixture of Medieval, Eastern and Islamic influences. You encounter this in food, housing, habits and behaviour. Get out of the comfort zone and try something new.
