“BOILER BOYS” ~ Boilers is the most consistent wave in the popular surf region of taghazout, morocco. a boiler deposited in the lineup from a shipwreck marks the takeoff spot, hence the name ‘boilers.’ there’s a group of fisherman who live just above the high tide line in some jenky rooms built in to the cliff that someone told us they call ‘the boiler boys.’ whether or not this is true is irrelevant… despite it’s pretty water color and scenic lanscape, ‘boilers’ is far from perfect. the reef is uneven and the crowd is thick making it hard to feel any rhythm while surfing. basically, in short, it’s fun but it’s not the wave you go there for, so after a few underwhelming swells for the first 10 days of our 2 week trip, ‘boiler boys’ was a sarcastic sentiment we’d use for surfing ~ ‘where should we surf this afternoon?’ ‘boiler boys!’ as if there was another option… we were the boiler boys… then,,, finally the swell came together and we got what we came for. anyways,,, that’s the story, watch the video for a more fulfilling experience.
if you wanna visit the region i’d recommend moroccan surf adventures ( morocsurf.com ) they were excellent hosts.
