Our gear made it to Marrakesh, then a three hour drive to Moulay Bouzerktoun. The place we are staying at sent a taxi.

Three days of sailing so far at Moulay Bouzerktoun. Two days only just planing on 5.2, waist high swell and one day over powered 4.5, but almost no swell at all. More like gorge conditions. Only the best guys were getting back loops, push loops, etc.

The town is tiny, only about five cars drive through every day, a perfect place to relax.
Elmouja surf house serves delicious Moroccan food for breakfast and dinner.

Some waves arrived yesterday. Biggest ones were about head high. There were about 20 windsurfers and two kiters on the water at any time.
The ramps moved further out at low tide when they seemed to be best. We were exhausted by that time though. Jen managed about five push loop attempts. The better guys were finding a steep ramp about every third to fifth run.


Also got some good wave rides, the wave was not super powerful so good for trying things.
