Ruins in Central Morocco is an exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the east. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northwest. The beach breaks peel to the right. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Water quality is rather poor here.
