Located just south of the lighthouse of Cap Whir, an old shipwrecked boiler that still lies at the start of the wave gives its name to this spot. Exposed to the SW-N swells, Boilers is a powerful and fast right-hand point break that ends up onto a shallow reef covered with urchins. Paddling in and out can be very tricky and only very experienced surfers should give it a go.
The spot starts working from 3-4ft and can hold up to 12ft. Mid-tide is the best time to surf it, with a northerly or north-easterly wind. Boilers is also often bigger than anywhere else in the Taghazout area…
When it’s on, the wave offers tubular sections and can break for more than 400 meters. But you need be fast if you want to make all the sections.
