In Morocco, with no temperatures going below 20ºC, one is able to enjoy waves during all seasons, and yoga sessions with amazing views. Like Shiraz, an English mother of two and co-founder of Amayour Surf in Taghazout. Shiraz has a deep knowledge of surfing in Morocco and since 2010 has seen it unravel into a huge, trendy culture. She tells Culture Trip why surfing in Morocco is so unique and how it became so popular among worldwide surfers.

Amayour Surf was co-founded by Shiraz Ksaiba, who decided to travel to Taghazout in 2010 and since then completely fell in love with this small fishing village. While there, Shiraz met M’hand Naciri, a surf teacher with whom she instantly hit it off. She definitely felt something was right about the place, and started thinking of moving to the surfing town.
