Generic Sunsets..

Sunset @ Anchor point

This evening we took a stroll down to Anchors, a world class surf break - famous for its long peeling rights.. Obviously it's flat at the mo, but we're all looking forward to watching it when its pumping! (Maybe surfing it when we're better...!)

We've been here now just over a fortnight and so far the only break that has been working is Tamri, a North facing beach a 40 min drive up the coast. Just having the one place working = busy busy busy, hurry up waves!

Salam Tagazhout!

And so it begins...

I've arrived at my new home for 3 months: Tagazhout - A fishing village in Morocco, 20 minutes drive from Agadir and close to some World class breaks such as Anchor Point, Killer Point and Boilers!!

 Bye Bye UK! 
@ Heathrow

Having been a 'boarding school kid' going away for long periods of time isn't a problem, though i've never been out of the country for this long before...

I'm staying at a Surf camp called Surf Berbere, the plan is to pretty much surf all day everyday for the next 12 weeks (similar to a ski season I guess...). Aside from the surfing side we will also be helping out with the local community teaching the guys in the town English, learning french, helping out with things such as beach cleans and experiencing the general Moroccan culture. By the time we come home in December we will hopefully all be ASI level 1 surf instructors and Beach lifesavers too!

Packed and ready to go!

Not sure whether I have enough bikinis?


Sooo, today is my last day in the UK before I'm going travelling... I've been at boarding school since I was 13 so I'm pretty used to going away for such long lengths of time, especially now i'm at Uni too but it's always sad saying your goodbyes regardless of the situation!
