The Roots Surf House:
Our surf house is located in the south of Morocco, in the village of Taghazout, near the resort city of Agadir. An area so lovely the King of Morocco has his beach palace down there. Here the High Atlas Mountains complete their run down to the North Atlantic Ocean, where goats reside in trees and where fishermen make their nightly drift out to the horizon on seaworthy car tyre inner tubes.
Taghazout is a stereotypical North African fishing village, with a series of narrow lanes winding either side of the one road, Highway 1, which runs through it’s middle and provides the village’s central focal point. Along this road there are a handful of shops, a market place and mosque and a few hotels. You can walk through Taghazout along Highway 1 from end to end in about 5 minutes.
The Roots Surf House is located just off Highway 1. Located right on the water’s edge, the house is populated with sun worshipers and surf rats from every corner of the globe, and they can be found lounging on our balcony watching the sea and checking out the waves. There is a combination of shared and private accommodation, though most nights you’ll pass out on the balcony with the ever-clear North African night sky twinkling away above you…
*A note on the balcony: Because it deserves it. This balcony is amazing and is definitely the focal point of the house. This is where we eat, drink tea, share stories, chug beers and smoke hookah. This is the place where you can play a game of chess or kiss a beautiful stranger. We BBQ here, we surf the net, we sloth around and we dry our wetsuits. From this balcony, you can check the surf at three of Morocco’s best breaks, from this balcony the sunset will burn so bright and beautiful your eyes will bleed, from this balcony the sounds of a Moroccan fishing village will drift up and mingle with chatter from all around the world. This is the balcony.
