After a pause in international competition caused by a devastating earthquake in 2023, the International Bodyboarding Corporation (IBC) World Tour is set to make a grand return with the announcement of the “World Bodyboard Championship Moroccan Pro.” This eagerly awaited event is poised to unfold in the stunning locale of Anza Agadir, Morocco, from February 20 to March 2, 2024, marking a significant milestone in the world of bodyboarding.

A Collaborative Effort for a Historic Event

In an exciting development for the sport, the Royal Moroccan Surfing Federation and the International Bodyboarding Corporation have united to host the 2024 Taghazout Bay World Bodyboard Championship Morocco Pro. This collaboration underscores the event’s importance as a beacon of resilience and international camaraderie.

Why Anza, Agadir Is the Perfect Venue

Anza, Agadir, a city renowned for its breathtaking coastline and vibrant surf culture, is set to be the backdrop for the championship’s thrilling kick-off.
