Hash Point got its name over people being lazy from smoking too much of the whacky backy and couldnt be bothered to walk up to Anchor Point. In all honesty, there are better waves in the region and this is one of the most fickle breaks out there (working only on a westerly swell and at mid to high tides). That being said, the fact that it is in the center of Taghazout means that it is so easy to get to that you will always find yourself having a cheeky little session on it.
Sharp rocks and sand, very good waves for all levels. Right hand point break and high tides with north-easterly winds. If the spot works well, its beautiful. Sometimes the whole beach works, not just the point, so theres space for everyone.

"Had one of the best trips with Reda at Surf Coast Morocco, he went over the top to be accommodating to all requests and help to arrange other activities outside of what was included in the package. Youssef our surf instructor was absolutely great at giving out pointer and even showed off a few of his own tricks. The day trip to Paradise valley was one of the high points of the entire trip. Could not more highly recommend this trip."

"My retreat with Surf Coast Morocco was great. They took really care of everything, driving us to the surf lessons everyday and arranging everything that we may need. Surf lessons were great. We were changing surf posts almost everyday. Yoga was taught mainly in a lcoation nearby where you could hear the sound of the waves so that was a perfect location fo meditation. It would probably have been better if we could have had the same yoga teacher during the whole week but at the same time, that gave us the opportunity to explore different teaching styles. And one important thing: the cooking from Ahmed (who was cooking us dinner every day) was delicious."
"My time in Morocco with Surf Coast Morocco was amazing!! Reda took such great care of me, making sure I was in need of nothing the whole time I was there. I'm spoiled!! The surfing was great and he took me to different beaches almost every day. The yoga was a perfect match with the surfing. The food was delicious, the accommodations were perfect and I met so many people from all over Morocco, Europe and Canada. Can't say enough about Reda and the great retreat he provided. He's so good at his job and a great guy!! The staff at the hostel were amazing, especially Ahmed!! The surfing instructors were so much fun, Khallid, Yusef (spelling?)!! One of my top vacations and I would highly recommend it to everyone!!"
"My stay with surf coast morocco was amazing. I was there for two weeks at the beginning of September and I had the best time. I was looking for a yoga retreat and found this one which offered yoga and surf so I thought I would give surf a go too and it was the best decision I took. I wasn't very lucky at the beginning as I was supposed to land in Agadir and my plane got diverted to Marrakech because of a sandstorm.The manager of Surf Coast Morocco, Reda, waited for me in Agadir from 5pm to 1am, he didn't even seem to be annoyed, he drove me to the hostel in Taghazout and stopped on the way to buy me food as I hadn't eaten all evening. The people in the hostel were so nice, they cooked amazing traditional Moroccan food every evening and they even asked what we wanted to eat and followed our requests. It was delicious every time. "
"We had yoga in the morning at 8, then breakfast, then we would go surfing from about 10:30 to 4 pm, then yoga again at 6. One day I had surfed for so long (I chose to do that, they let you rest whenever you want) that the next day my legs were so sore I couldn't surf. Reda drove me to a massage place where my muscles could relax while the others went surfing. He was always doing his best to make everyone happy and he always drove us wherever we wanted to go. "
"I didn't feel like I was part of an organized trip as everyone was so cool, I felt like I was on holidays with friends. "
"We had a lot of different yoga teachers which allowed us to explore different styles of yoga."
"I can't believe I started with any experience at all in surfing and after two weeks I had learned how to turn and I surfed a couple of big waves."
"I am really happy I did this retreat. It was the perfect holiday: sport, fun, some night outs and I got to discover and experience Moroccan culture which is beautiful. People are so nice and welcoming. Reda and the others at the hostel take very good care of their guests. "

"I didn't know what to expect, when I started my trip, and a lot of things were different to what I imagined, but I had the best time on a vacation EVER. I was a little confused after my long journey when I was dropped off at the hostel, which looked different to the pictures of the retreat, I saw before. But since I was traveling alone and booked a shared room, it was the best way to feel like being part of the community from the first moment on. I stayed a whole week to do some Yoga and learn how to surf but I got a lot more. Reda was the best host, you can imagine. We were talking every day about what to do or what to see and he was taking care of everything. It felt like having a djin with unlimited wishes. We had trips to the souk, hammam, paradise valley or a party at a nearby beach hotel. We always had a great time at the beach, although it was off-season and you had to be patient to wait for the good waves. The food at the hostel was always fresh, local and very tasty. Every night we finished dinner with a tea ceremony and the cook was always interested in what cravings the guests had (since I'm a dessert-person he made us fruit salad some of the nights!) Although I was travelling alone for the first time in my life, I never felt alone or lonely. I met so many nice and interesting people and everybody else felt the same hospitality as I did. I will for sure come back some day."

"Taghazout is magical. It was my favourite place in Morocco by far. The hostel I stayed in was less than a 10 second walk to the main street, from the terrace you could check the surf at 3 different beaches. The atmosphere was great too with communal dinners every night with the most delicious Moroccan meals being prepared so freshly. What made this experience so outstanding was the unbelievable hospitality that was shown to me by all the staff including Reda, the surf instructors, the hostel staff and the yoga instructor. As a solo traveler they welcomed me so graciously and made me feel like family. They were able to help me with anything I needed and were so happy to do so. I was driven anywhere I needed to go including which beach was best to surf on that day. Some of my best memories are cruising down the coast with the windows down and a stack of about 5 boards on the roof of a small car. I spent a day out in Paradise Valley jumping of the high cliffs into deep blue swimming holes. On the way out there we stopped in at an Argan oil farm and saw how it is made which is something you need to do if your going to by any of this magical oil. The surf in Taghazout was perfect for me to learn on when I was there (in May) and the boards and wetsuits were in good condition. Taghazout is such a small place it only took a few days for me to feel like I already knew most people. Overall this was the high light of my trip and I loved every second of it. It had a very relaxed feel so I could choose what I wanted to do each day. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Morocco. "

"We had a really great time in Tagazhout. Awesome staff! The guys showed us amazing places to go surfing and hiking. I can absolutely recomend them."
"I have had one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I Initially planned on only staying for two days to check out other small cities but my time was so good that I ended up staying for the rest of my trip! Haha. I'm definitely coming back for the unbelievable friendliness and amazing accommodation. I will be back!"
"Best surf hostel in Taghazout. Great service, beautiful place, and awesome people. Special thanks to Reda for taking us around and making us feel at home!"
"Beautiful place, beautiful people! Had an awesome time and I highly recommend this place! Would 100% come back!"
"Lovely people, great food, and good times. Great local knowledge of surf spots, so went to the right location every day. Also took me up to paradise valley and a botanic garden. Throw in rooftop yoga with sunshine and a fantastic view and all is good."
"I stayed with Surf Coast Morocco as a solo traveler - my first solo holiday abroad and my first time surfing, so I was unsure of what to expect. I couldn't have been made to feel more at home. I stayed at the camp's (much smaller / quieter) accommodation in Tamraght, which is a nice little fishing village on a hill a few minutes away from Taghazout, where the camp's busier and bigger house is based. The Taghazout house is from what I understand a bit more of a party or communal experience, with more organised events based from there in the evenings, and may better suit people who fancy the fun of staying in a backpacker dorm with a large crowd. For my money though Tamraght is a more idyllic location and the smaller group in the house (just one other visitor plus me, at the off-season time I went, together with our live-in host Julia) was for me the perfect size (helped by the fact that we all got on so well!). The house is clean and cozily furnished and a quick drive down to the beach. What really sets Surf Coast Morocco apart however is the hosting. You are treated absolutely as if you are a family guest. My booking, for example, included all three meals - this turned out to mean that our host Julia or others from the camp would prepare us a different spread each day of fresh traditional Moroccan food, often on request, with snacks of our choice. We were driven everywhere by the extremely accommodating staff on the team - from the beaches to the souks, to the Taghazout house for classes - and again the attitude taken was that if you say you want to go somewhere (within reason!) one of the hosts will be happy to make it happen and drive you there. There was no additional charge whatsoever for these kind of outings, which I'm sure must be unusual on camps of this kind. Overall a really special stay, and one I would highly recommend. The Tamraght house in particular was perfect for a solo traveler looking to discover a new hobby (unlimited surfing and classes all day!) and make new friends."
