We are heading back for what is sure to be another amazing Moroccan adventure, MOULAY 2020: CA VA TABARNOUCHÉ!!!
Week #1 : Saturday May 23rd to Saturday May 30th
Week#2 : Saturday May 30th to Saturday June 6th
After the resounding success that our 2019 trip proved to be, we’ve worked with Boujmaa to put together another unforgettable experience!
Moulay is a wave sailing spot, but that doesn't mean you need to be a pro to sail there. In fact most of the sailors on our last trip had little to no experience in waves and had an amazing experience! What makes this spot so special is the combination of consistent side shore winds and being well exposed to pick up Atlantic swell. With many spots around that work in different conditions, intermediate to advanced sailors can always have a good time. If you can plane upwind and waterstart you can can come on this trip!
Boujmaa puts a big emphasis on making sure every guest gets to experience the rich Moroccan culture. He guides us on complementary excursions to nearby points of interest such as Essaouira, local Souks, and even vineyards. When we get home, Ahmed (the best cook in the world) has some AMAZING local dishes ready for us to enjoy.
This year promises to be even better with the same amazing conditions, cousine, culture and hospitality that we experienced on our last trip with an even easier transit/ longer opening hours at the center for guests to enjoy!

Depending on the group and on the conditions we can go explore other launches or organize downwinders.
Moulay is one of those special places that is blessed with a thermal that provides consistently strong sideshore wind from the right almost year round. On average sailors will use 4.0-4.5m sails and often smaller! Yes, it's that windy! At the end of the day the wind backs off and swings more offshore making for some epic side off soul surfing conditions.
As with pretty much all wave spots, how big the waves are really depends on how much swell we get. In front of the center in Moulay, the waves break consistently over two reefs with a chanel in between making them organized and easy to negotiate. They offer fantastic ramps on the way out and excellent rides on the way. If a very big swell comes in the waves can be mast high or more. However this is not the norm and generally this does not last for longer than a day or two. Most of the time the waves in front are shoulder to head high, super fun even for those new to wavesailing!
If we have days where conditions in front of the center are not cooperating, we have a number of other spots nearby that will offer what we are looking for. We can move around and choose what kind of conditions we want to sail in so everyone has a good time!
All meals and snacks are included in all packages, make sure you come ready to eat because the Moroccan cuisine is about as good as it gets! Meals are served in the main guest house and are a great way to connect with other guests.
Bouj X Sports is well stocked with top of the line 2019/2020 Starboard and Severne wave sailing equipment. The center has enough gear to accommodate any level and size wave sailor. Your gear rental package also includes the use of SUP’s and surfboards if the wind choses to take a break. Gear rental is included in all our packages, if you would like to bring your own gear please contact us to discuss options.
Please note that airfare is not included with our packages. What we found works best from Montreal is:
We recommend you to land at CASABLANCA. Both Air Canada and Royal Air Maroc have direct overnight flights making the trip a breeze. The transfer from Casablanca to the center is included in all fares. Each flight will have its own transfer to make sure everyone gets to Moulay as quickly and comfortably as possible!
The flights right now (January 2019) are around 800-900 $CAD.
IMPORTANT NOTE : If you decide to fly to any other airport other than Casablanca, please contact us so we can discuss options. There may be additional transport fees charged to guests not .taking the organized transfers from Casablanca.
