A few minutes’ drive north of Taghazout, surfers find Killer Point, or just ”Killers,” a classic point break where waves form off rocks jutting into the sea. At low tide, surfers can hike down to it; at other times they paddle for 30 to 45 minutes from a nearby beach.

“Big, small, technical and dangerous waves ... no limit” is how one globe-surfing pro describes more than 3,000 kilometers of his native Morocco’s Atlantic coast.
