I’ve got a virus on my camera, so I cannot show you those pics and vids from the last two weeks in morocco :((( I hope I can find a specialist soon to fix it! g-d damned hackers!

I just returned back home from surfing morocco again (third time in six months) and what did I see? 300 followers!!! thank you!!! :)))
you surely heard about the lion air crash in bali! a friend of mine was surfing the airport left when it happened. here’s what he wrote:
“Ok so im surfing airport lefts…a nice break next to the bali runway…and we watch a plane literally overshoot the landing and crash into the ocean on the right hander reef. Talk about crazy thing to see happen right next to u in the surf! Passengers got out onto the wing and appeared ok. Google lion air crash if u wanna look.“
I am waiting… and waiting… and waiting… why? because there is this project of some friends of mine called “trashore” and we are hoping to get an award from the european union to clean surfspots this year again. if they (who is the european union? anyway…) give us their “okay”, we will be twenty people from four different countries (austria, israel, morocco and spain in alphabetical order) surfing and cleaning the beaches of taghazout and tamraght in may! :)
love & peace
with every surftrip I not only pack my backpack with many inspiring new acquaintances to take home with me, but also with at least one scar and some bruises. the former will stay. so will the memories. thank you panorama point in taghazout this time! I will adore, appreciate, respect and remember you forever…
hey guys and görls,
what do you think – should I get myself this wax for my next surftrip in january (morocco again)…?
did you already try colored wax? is it as good as any other one? will my wetsuit or lycra get much more dirty? if yes, can you wash it out easily? AND… which color shall I go for??? this is the baby, I want to use it on:
what to do on a rainy wednesday? riding messy waves – just to get wet! ;)
it’s almost one week since we’ve returned from our surftrip to taghazout/morocco, so I guess I should really keep going (as hard as it is) and tell you a little bit about this stinky, though lovely surfers’ village.
we’ve arrived in the middle of the night after a three or more hours drive from marrakesh. it was cold and rainy and our taxi driver had no heating in his old mercedes-benz, so we had to drive with open windows, because when we closed them, they were filming over with condensation and our driver couldn’t see a thing. so far so freezing.
finally in taghazout we checked in to our room, well – I don’t know if you can actually call it a room, it was more kind of a big broom closet with two beds and no window, which is actually quite popular in this region, so I wasn’t too worried about it. and anyway far too tired to care at all.
when we woke up in the morning and went to the community terrace, we saw this to the left…
…and this to the right…
…so I straightly went up to the rooftop to have a larger view of this fantastic spots, but then I saw this…
ok, so there is hardly any booze available in this lovely little village, but if I had a rooftop with one of the greatest surfspot-views in the whole world and I cannot open an open air pub up there, I would at least make it cosy. and you don’t even need a lot of money for it. some old mattresses and cushions, some plant pots and you’re done! or what about a small rooftop café with a fabulous view over hash and anchor point? or even a rooftop “hostel” (like you have it in jerusalem for example) where surfergirls and -boys can sleep under a starry sky?
I guess there’s only one solution: I have to buy (well, being realistic about it, rent) something there and make my dreams come true! :)
hey guys and görls,
just a quick goodbye – in four hours I’m off and on my way to tamraght and taghazout (morocco). looking forward to telling you everything about this surftrip!
take care, hang loose, sunshine to you
