Morocco has been firmly on the world’s radar for many generations thanks to its friendly culture, delightful climate and array of perfect points, however, there’s much more to the country than idyllic right-hand peelers.
We recently came across the excellent work of Arthur Peyronnet, AKA Morocco Surf Photography and hit him up to give us his photographic take on the nation and tell us a little bit more about what it has to offer:
“Originally I’m from the north of France and I moved to Morocco three years ago.
“I came to photography by accident after I broke my hand skateboarding and couldn’t do much, so I bought a camera and started to shoot! It will take me ages before I consider myself as a proper photographer, but for now I’m learning and enjoying the present!
“Some old locals told me that surfing first started here in North Morocco, in a place called Mehdia, where there was an American military base. Then in the 60s, the Aussies and English spent the winter surfing around Taghazout.
“The surfing culture is growing really fast here, most of the famous spots are really crowded during the winter season but with more than 3000km of coast there is a lot of opportunity for an empty session.
“Morocco is already well known around the world for the quality of the right-hander point breaks,which is true, but there’s definitively more to it than only this. I’m working on it actually, and maybe one day I will be able to show you the unseen side of Morocco”
