The Royal Moroccan Federation of Surfing and the European Surfing Federation
From the beginning of the 60's, many European surfriders crossed the strait to discover the Moroccan potential. Over the years and in the course of the meetings, cordial links as well as a desire of opening up brought the Moroccan Federation to become a full member of the European Surfing Federation. The FRMS is the only African national federation registered on the European Federation (Let us highlight that the national Open team is in the third position and the Junior team is in the fourth position in the European classification).
The FRMS, in its mission of public service of organization and development of the Surf, delegated by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, pursues its work of structuring at the national level through a wide program of formation, support of the surfclubs, training and competitions.
