Wakeboarding is a sport derived and intertwined from a number of sports, resulting in what it is today. It’s a hybrid and unconventional sister of water skiing and surfing. Historians recall surfers being towed with a ski rope behind a boat and, sometimes even from the shoreline by a truck. However, surfers soon realized that the traditional surf boards were too long for this kind of a sport. From this, shorter boards started being used. In 1985, a San Diego surfer named Tony Finn developed the Skurfer — a hybrid of a water ski and a surfboard. It looked like a little surfboard, and was pulled by a boat while the rider performed surf-style carving moves on the wake. Riders stood anywhere on these boards since there were no straps or bindings.
I am sure if you are planning to go on a trip to Morocco, you must have heard of the Berbers. We on MYrago have a couple of experiences with Berber families. I was very intrigued when I started seeing our amazing ambassadors’ talk about their rich culture & wanting to promote it. Feeling uncultured, I began reading up about them and came across some really mind blowing information! The below is my breakdown of the Berber culture & its significance to the Moroccan heritage. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing about it!
... We are talking about Clay Pots silly! See what we did there ;-)
Marrakesh is bewitching, but boy can it wear you out: the sun is unforgiving, it’s noisy and dusty, you’ll get lost in the medina more times than you can count, and everyone seems to have something to sell you. Stepping out from the tranquility of your riad into the heat of the street can feel like entering a gladiatorial arena. To keep your sanity and stay refreshed, you will need pampering, and lots of it.
Fortunately pampering is something Marrakesh does very well. The hammam, or Turkish bath, is something most locals indulge in at least weekly, and if you want to sweat away your troubles and get the scrubbing of a lifetime, there’s nothing better. By all means go local if you fancy it (the Hammam es Salam near the Menara gardens is recommended), but be warned that some of them are a bit rough and ready. If you want some five-star spa treatment, or if you’re a couple and want the experience together, read on for what to expect in the best private hammams.
