FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WEATHER & SURF
we are spoiled with waves all year round and with us, you’ll find waves all year round! especially for beginner surfers, there is always a beach break to surf.
the months november – february are known for some higher swells and therefore preferred by experienced surfers.
in september and october, april and may you find medium high waves, perfect for intermediate surfers. the summer months are known for smaller, but still super fun waves. we have a large selection of surf spots and therefore find suitable waves for every condition and surf level: when very small or very big swells hit the coast there are always waves to surf for your individual level.
and in case the waves are really too big or there are no waves at all, we offer alternatives (paradise valley, souk el had, skating…) or you just enjoy your free time to explore the local area.
check meteoblue.com (location tamraght ou fella) for a reliable weather forecast.
