Since the moment I opened my eyes to the waves of the sea, I started to learn the sport of surfing. Over time, this sport became my primary passion. I practiced it as a hobby with my friends who share the same interest and we went to all the spots in my city.

So I became addicted, not to wine or cigarettes, but to something called surfboard body-boarding. After a while, I became involved in local competitions to ride waves and over time, I feel, not like a professional, but that I reached a good level so that I can participate in national competitionsโ€ฆ

So far everything is good but the problems I face as a surfer include, experiencing seduction or problems in the financial department. You canโ€™t improve your level without traveling to spots outside of Morocco. Thereโ€™s also friction with other professional wave surfers.

The university to ride waves does not provide any support because this sport is new in Morocco. This makes a person like me very frustrated because it forces me away from my passion. I only hope that the university will eventually support this sport and that the situation will improve in the future.
