Eighteen kilometres from Agadir is the fishing village of TAGHAZOUT (Tarhazoute, or even Taghagant). At one time Morocco’s hippy resort par excellence, it is now the country’s main surfing resort instead, but the laidback vibe and friendly relationship between villagers and tourists remains. Several surf shops rent out, sell or repair boards, and sell surfing accoutrements (the longest established is Free Surf on Rue Sidi Said Ouhmed, just opposite the main square).

The main movers and shakers on the surfing scene are British firm Surf Maroc, who rent out equipment from their office at Taghazout Villa, and offer surf guiding and tuition along with accommodation in Taghazout. They also rent out apartments at surfing spots further north.
