We not only want you, but also your board to arrive safely in Tamraght!

What you’ll need to bring your surfboard to Morocco in one piece:

☼ Board bag

☼ Fin key

☼ Additional clothes, wetsuits, towels, beanies… i.e. everything that won’t fit in your suitcase*

☼ Optional: Offshore shop board sock

Step 1.

Remove the fins from the board using the fin key and wrap them in something soft like a t-shirt.

Step 2.

Put the screws back in to avoid them from snagging on anything.

Step 3.

Additional notes:

Remove the old wax off your board if travelling to a warmer country

*you can swap these out for cardboard, bubble wrap, foam pipe, duct tape if you’d like to be extra precautious
