Tan-Tan Morocco: The surfing

The surfing in Tan-Tan is located in Tan-Tan plage and some surrounding spots. The Tan-Tan surf scene exists, but have a huge problem of lake of equipement becose they are no surf shops in town and no tourists that come to surf the area and leave there equipement, just like the surfing started in Taghazout and even before in Mehdia Beach further north of Morocco. They are a couple places where you can stay if you are visiting the city of Tan-Tan. There is a surf club in this little town of south Morocco on Elouatia Beach, lead by one of the first Moroccan on the north shore, Echinne, a Moroccan bodyboard legend. Keep an eye on the winds before to go.
