General

I was there in summer, but I was told that in winter, when the different sections connect, the waves is very very very long
It's a really good wave, with a cool take off, then become faster, and could tube in the last section

En mai il n'y avait plus le banc de sable - J'ai fait un surf trip d'une semaine basé à Imessouane en mai dernier. J'ai longtemps rêvé de cette baie, mais malheureusement les bancs de sable qui créaient ces vagues magiques ont disparus, laissant place à une droite molle assez courte. En revanche à quelques mètres de la baie il y un autre spot plutôt sympa (le reef) qui marche bien. Une gauche qui lève sur une dalle, plus technique et fréquentée.

Les spots ne manquent pas aux alentours mais la magie de la baie n'est plus (en tout cas en mai 2011).

The perfect right is dead at the bay... In may 2011 during my surf trip the sand banks were not at the good place to create the waves.

Is the ride at the bay still so long? - I went to Immessouane early this year and everyone was complaining that the sandbar at the bay had disappeared and that the spot had become now just a regular beach break. Does anyone knows if the sand bar is now back ? apparently it was not teh first time it went away.

Hotel in Immesouane? - Hi,
I'm going to Morocco in the middle of Feb and want to spend two nights in Immesouane. Can anyone recommend a good hotel or? Contact details? Thanks!
