Hassan Ingram from Morocco
“Tifnit is one of the most consistent area to surf in Morocco. The local area is flooded with reefs, beachies, wedges, shore breaks so there is a spot for everyone.

Local accommodation for surfers and general B&B can be found with local business Maroc-Azure.

The area is sand so you need a 4x4 to travel up and down the coast line.”
