morocco or philippines?« on: June 27 2012 17:06:00 »
I have first three weeks of December to take surf trip. Looking for decent waves, don't have to be perfect. I'm intermediate level so don't surf huge waves. Shoulder to head high is fine as long as it's lining up. My main goal is to avoid crowds. Should I do a guided package at a surf camp in Morocco or go solo in Philippines? Which place will have fewer people this time a year?

Avoid crowds? Then avoid Morocco in winter time.
Don't know about Philippines

im half filipino and learned to surf there. definitely go to the philippines if you want to avoid crowds. the only "crowds" youll meet are a few locals and as long as you show basic surf etiquette you wont meet any aggy locals.
travelling alone in the philippines could be a bit tough if you dont have a lot of experience travelling asia. and youll need to be patient and speak with locals if you wanna find surf spots that give fairly constant swell that doesnt depend on storms.
i surf at a place called san fernando in luzon. start there and ask around.
