Summer may not be the first season that comes to mind when you think of surfing. However, as the sun shines bright and the waves roll in, summer unveils its hidden treasures for surf enthusiasts.
In this blog, we’ll delve into why summer becomes the ideal season for extended surf sessions and a perfect playground for beginners to master the art of riding the waves. This guide is designed to help you navigate the summer surf and discover the best spots. At Surf and Friends Lodge, we’re committed to providing exceptional instruction and guidance to ensure you have a memorable and rewarding surfing experience.
The Perfect Wave Conditions for Beginners:
If you’re thinking about catching some waves in Taghazout or Tamraght, Morocco, then summer might just be the perfect time for you to dive in! During the summer months, you’ll find smaller and gentler waves rolling in, which is fantastic news for beginners like you! These waves are easier to handle, making it a breeze to paddle into them, catch, and practice riding. Plus, it’s an excellent opportunity for building up your confidence and gradually honing your skills. Another awesome perk of surfing in the summer is the longer intervals between wave sets. With more time between waves, you won’t feel rushed or overwhelmed, giving you the chance to position yourself just right and paddle into the wave with ease. And guess what? The water temperatures are warmer during this time too! That means you can enjoy a more comfortable and pleasant experience in the water, without having to worry about freezing your fins off. With the cozy waters, you’ll have all the time you need to focus on your technique and simply relish the joy of surfing.
