SURFING IN IMSOUANE
There are two beaches and seven surf spots in Imsouane.
Cathedral Point is a point break, Heavy and thick with a wedge of a take off, it is another right-hander on the north side of the village right on our door step with in 1 minute from your room to the wave. It is the wave you see first thing in the morning, the wave you hear in the night and it's where the sun sets. It tends to need more swell to break depending on the sand bar, but it holds big. it is relatively a easy paddle out. If the spot works well it's beautiful. Sometimes the whole beach works, not just the point, so there's space for everyone to get a barrel. On smaller days the left "The reef'' is always working on the other side of Cathedrals.
The reef is a fast hollow left hander which breaks on the opposite side of the beach from Cathedrals. It picks up the most of the swell. and is best surfed mid tide. Works with all sizes of swell can get very heavy.
Rivermonth is a A frame with lefts and rights, short rides but fun ones.
The bay - longest right hander in Morocco
Long board heaven, great for all levels of surfing and if you just want to ride perfect long waves. When this thing breaks far out, on south swells, it's amazing barrels but rarely seen, On a average day, one minute rides are the normal. You'll go to bed seeing lines.
There are 4 peaks at the bay, the harbour wall, middles, 1 hollow beach break on the inside. There is a gnarly wave on the outside of the bay. It breaks on the shallow rocks and is dangerous, but people sometimes Tow surf it.
The first section of the bay starts on the outside slab and then reforms just outside the end of the pier. The bay is famous for low tide but on spring tides it can easily be surfed at half tides. If the waves are too big, paddle out from the harbor go straight to the shoulder or the middle, loads of sets come from the west and waves are cleaner and slower.
There is also the beach break on the inside with a sandy safe bottom and great for boogey boarders works also with more water.
