In the Essaouira region, the north-east wind is called Chargui. It blows all year round between 4 and 5. And it increases from mid-March until mid-September (reaches force 7)

In winter, the trade wind is less constant (3/4 Beaufort) and comes from other directions.

The waves are exceptional from spring to fall. We recommend sails 3.7, 4.2, and 4.7. A 5m can also be good in winter. Boards should be between 65 and 80 liters.
