Marock'n Roll: Probably the first Moroccan successfull surf brand

Laarbi, used to be the the cool guy that used to hang out with the traveller surfer coming to visit Taghazout, from there he got inspired a lot and decided to start his own surf shop. Very difficult in the beguinning, he found quiet few difficulties to get the business kick off. The name of his surf shop was: Marock'n Roll.

Marock'n Roll
With a very original logo: a man with a jellaba (Traditional Moroccan out fit) he started selling a lot of localy made t-shirts with very cool designs and phrases. his t-shirts are what made the sucess of his business. Now adays, Marock'n Roll t-shirts are what Bintang T-shirts are for Bali.
Check this surf shop: right next to Café la Paix

Killer point apartments, probably the best apartments to stay in to surf Taghazout

Killer point apartments are located right in front of the surf spot "La source". This high end resort is in our opinion, the greatest location for a surfing holiday in Taghazout Morocco. Right in front of world famous Killer point and la source at the door steps, these stunning resort is composed of 12 amazing apartments with balconies watching the surf. It is the perfect location for honey mooners adn couples with wifes and girl friends that don't surf. They can stay watching their hubby or boyfriend from a hammock along the swimming pool. It is also a good place for families and groupe of friends.


Killer point apartments, view on La source line up

If staying at the killer point apartments, you can always have a look on the surf to Killer point, La Source, Mysteries and Anchor point. The name of killer point comes from the fact that during the summer months, Killer whales come to this bay to have a rest before they follow there way.

The KILLER POINT APARTMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED!!!!!
