Originally from the North of Morocco, Morad grew up surfing the local spots in his hometown of Mehdia. After several years working there as a beach lifeguard and surf instructor, he came to Tamraght to work at a local surf school and never left.
Sophie first came to Morocco in 2010, to surf and experience the area of Taghazout and it's world famous surf. After a week's stay, she was destined to return and did so over the coming years. She left Wales in 2012 to live in the South of France, but her itchy feet and memories of Morocco eventually lead her back, with no plan - just a one way ticket.
