I'll be following along Bro. Great pics so far, keep 'em coming.

I did something similar a couple of years back on my KLR..., moto-surfed from BC to Panama and back - and I just surfed Morocco last fall too, you'll enjoy those waves!

Your trip looks amazing, good work all-round for getting at it.

Stay safe and the rest! Cheers.

Hey Dude rode through Morocco and being a surfer myself was looking for waves along the coast which you will certainly find. I found this spot Moulay Bousselham (you will find it on Google maps if not let me know) its a few hundred k's north of the more popular spots down there and hopefully when you arrive you will be greeted with what I was a fantastic view of a left and right hander on either side of the smallish bay, when I asked the locals does anyone surf here they said "yeah we have a few windsurfer's come from time to time" ahahahahah you get the drift. There is a back beach not far that has reefs all along it and you may be lucky to find others surfers to share it with.

Ride safely and rubber side down always

PS lets hope you don't have any troubles getting through Angola a lot of people do even with visa's already granted, if you do however have any issues contact me and I know a French guy that followed that route he might be able to help you with information to move the bike through. Of course don't let anything stop your dream just deal with those problems as they come up with the help of friendly locals from every country you will have the good fortune to visit. Good luck and happy surfing.

Thanks for the tip Sheldon! I'm in Safi now with a swell due in Wenesday. I see it on the map and looks like I've blown right by your spot! If I have to go to Rabat to extend my Mauritania visa, I'll surely go for a look there.

Yes, Angola could be a show stopper. Reports are always changing of success getting visas at various embassies along the way and plenty of stories of utter failure with weeks or months waiting. The visa is only good for 3 months after issue and beginning this year Angola requires you to actually show up at the embassy in Houston to apply. Those two facts made getting it in the USA a no to for me. Hopefull I don't have to send you a desperate PM in my darkest hour on the Angolan border.

Moped = Drunk.

Did he catch a board end in the chest? That would be worth a laugh.

Suscribed. I'll be following your ride the whole way. Great set up and start to a great RR. I hope you have the adventure of a lifetime. It'd be silly to tell a guy riding a motorcycle around Africa in search of good surfing to be careful but trust your gut over there and make it home w some awesome stories to tell.

Glad I finally clicked on this one. Can't finish now, alarm in four hours.

Lucky you. No alarms for a while I bet.
