Wind Arrives, AWT Morocco Set to Start

As Opening Day approaches, the local Moroccan winds have kicked in with full force. Thus far, the forecast has held true with strong wind filling in just prior to the event. Today saw winds gusting well into the 30 knot range, kicking up some nice windswell for everyone to warm up with.


The energy level was high as riders watched the conditions start to turn on. By mid-day it was solid 4.0 weather, and everyone was scrambling to get their small stuff ready. The pre competition warm-up was action packed, with local talent and AWT regulars practicing their moves. Here are a few pics to whet your appetite of what’s to come.


Competition is expected to get underway first thing tomorrow, with a really solid wind forecast. Waves are small, but the wind is strong, allowing for some serious jumping. While we don’t expect anything massive in the wave department, it does look like there will be plenty for everyone to show their best moves.
