Morocco not worth bothering with late March?

Postby Goat » Fri Feb 08, 2013 2:06 pm

Hi,

I might be a bit late here, but thinking about booking up another surf maroc trip this year, going mid-late March. www.wannasurf.com advises that conditions are poor with incessant onshore winds. Anyone know if this is generally the case, or would it still be worth going?

Thanks,

Dave

And i was just referring to the flights and board carriage alone! All in would be about 900. You got a lot for your money there.

went to the algarve with a mate last week Jan. So cheap, we had a full 3 course meal at Carrapateira O Sitio do Rio and it only came to e30 with his port to. Surfed a nice point break after too. Most I spent was e30 on a night out in Lagos including taxis to/from Luz and I was still annihilated. Mind you I hadn't drunk more than a couple of shandies here and there since the Stone Roses gig last July. Was able to buy my wife some chanel perfume in the airport before dropping the april trip bomb

Good stuff. Trip postponed to April when we'll be doing a group of mates/hire a car trip to portugal. Makes sense. Yup, heard Lagos can be a bit of a party town.
