Moroccan women surfers have become a common sight as they skim the waves off the coast of the capital, Rabat, but they still can face prejudice and harassment back on land.Surfers first took to the waves off Morocco's Atlantic Coast in the 1960s, at the popular seaside resort of Mehdia, about 50 kilometers north of the capital.The sport gradually gained Moroccan enthusiasts, including women.But mentalities differ from beach to beach.Back at Udayas beach, popular with young men playing football, attitudes are more conservative.The Rabat Surf Club now has more than 40 surfers, half of whom are girls, Medkouri said.
