Earlier this year Caribbean ripper Willy Aliotti took a short trip down to Morocco from his home in Hossegor with the crew from Wasted Talent, to chase what they hoped was going to be the swell of the year.
Willy is undoubtedly one of the finest young surfers in Europe right now, and whilst he always turns heads with his above the lip antics, it’s nice to see him knifing into the fine reeling walls, that draw so many to Morrocco.
Alex from WT dutifully allowed us to rip some pages out of his diary from the trip. Here are some highlights:
“Sunrise. 20 knots offshore and I am checking a beach break wearing a shawl. I am not sure whether I am T.E Lawrence, Michal Douglas or Trinny and Susanna. A man interrupts me because I interrupted him sleeping on a cliff. I settle for a mixture of T.E Lawrence and Susanna”
The swell does arrive but is smaller and still très fun. He stays in wetsuit all day.
I find this behaviour odd but he seems happy so I ask no questions as we drive through the desert. He is Tonto and I am the Lone Ranger. I am Michal Douglas and he is Kathleen Turner in the Jewel of the Nile
We sleep for exactly 2 hours and 17 minutes in an airport hotel and then we fly to France.”
