Last night all the surfers at Tagahzout Surf Camp were getting excited about the lines of water running along Hash Point during the extraordinarily amazingly beautiful sunset. After the lack of swell for the past week, we could not wait to wake up the next morning and finally set foot in the water again, knowing that we were going to get some.
This is why the early hours today felt like Christmas morning. All the little kids crawled out of their beds and ran upstairs to take a look at what the ocean had to offer. And there they were. Finally. Waves. A North Western swell had brought us something to play in. We couldn’t get to the car fast enough, eating our breakfast baguette while grabbing our wetsuits and running down the stairs, eager to hit the water. Unfortunately, the tide was too high, and no one wanted to waste their precious energy until it would actually get really good. So we went back to our rooftop-terrace and tapped our feet impatiently while soaking up the sun.
Then it was time. Since we always try to make everyone happy, from whitewash-babies to absolute wave shredders, we chose Camel beach to be our spot for the day. And we found some really fun, punchy three foot waves to test our skills. Everyone had some really good rides, the whitewash babies going down the face with a ridiculous grin on their faces, and the absolute wave shredders doing airs and crazy other things on their wave, looking all cool and stuff. I included some pictures, in case you have difficulties imagining what I am writing about. So it turned out to be a really good session, and we all felt like Santa had sent us an early Christmas present, getting us all jolly and cheery for the season. Because we don’t care for things. We care for waves.
Anyway, apparently the swell is supposed to last – AND GROW! So stay tuned.
