In case you haven't already heard.. Gareth has just got back from an epic surf trip to Morocco!

While the rest of us have suffered in the cold, Gareth was out surfing in a short sleeve cag, dining on local cuisine, and exploring the Moroccan coastline.

The trip started out by flying to Agadir. From here the team travelled to their first stop, Imsouane. A day or two was spent surfing at Cathedral Point, but it wasn't long before they headed South to Sidi Ifni, stopping off at a few spots along the way and sampling the local cuisine. 

A great way to get a dose of warm weather paddling during the winter. Definitely marked on the calender for next year!
