First surfed by Australians in the 1960’s, Anchor Point is one of the most famous spot in Morocco. This magical world-class right-hand point break produces a long and fast wave that easily reaches 300 meters on a classic day. Best at low tide, this spot starts working with a 3ft swell (head high) and can hold up to 18ft. The bigger, the better!
Because of its reputation and consistency on all tides, Anchor Point is pretty much always busy. However, the crowd tends to thin out with increasing size.
What are the best surf conditions for Anchor Point?
Anchor Point delivers its full potential with a medium to large long-period NW swell, and a Northeasterly wind. When it happens, and after a scary steep take-off, an endless succession of speed walls and cutback hooks present themselves with a more sandy section down the point offering the occasional barrels. When it’s huge, the wave becomes so long that you can ride back into Taghazout.
We recommend riding your gun, standard shortboard, step-up when bigger here. Anchor Point in Taghazout is best suited to pro to advanced surfers. Its doesn’t get good that often and some times has a wave (4/10) and can get busy at peak times (8/10).
