Wander the streets of Taghazout, and you'll stumble upon more juice bars than you can count!
With all year round sunshine, South Morocco is blessed with a variety of yummy fruits - bananas, peaches, apples, avocados....
Locals and tourists alike love nothing more than to sip on a freshly made juice after a day of surfing Morocco's world-class waves!

Eid-ul-Adha (translates to 'festival of Sacrifice'), is an important festival in the Muslim calendar. Also known as the Greater Eid, the festival honours the prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son to God.
Muslims all over the world observe this day by slaughtering an animal – a sheep, goat, cow or camel (depending on region). Once the animal is slaughtered, the meat and organs of the animal are prepared and shared among family and friends. People will often donate money – or even live animals – to poorer families in order for them to participate in the religious celebration.
Welcome to the first feature of our blog series 'Meet the locals'.
'Meet the locals' is a blog series dedicated to the locals of the Moroccan surf community. Once a month, we meet up with one of the friendly locals of Tamraght/Taghazout, ask them a few questions and introduce them to you!
First up, it's our favourite surf instructor, Morad!
A little taster of the fun waves we shared with our amazing guests this summer!
