What you'll do

Essaouira is arguably the best spot on the list of ‘The Top 5 Beginner Surf Beaches in Morocco’ for learning and practicing to surf.

It’s perfect for those completely new to the sport because the beach has a soft sand bottom. And it also offers waves for all levels the whole year. It is best at high-tide with a light north wind because it creates both left and right peaks that allow you to get a grip of the basic surf skills.

I will pick you up from your accommodation and we will head to the best spot on the beach depending on the conditons to make sure we will make the best of it.

we will start off with some ocean awareness and water safety. Then, after a warm up and some practice drills on the beach, we will get into the water and start working on techniques to get you standing up on your board, catching waves and most importantly - having fun!

初めてのサーフィン体験を楽しく終えることができました。少人数制なのも有り難かったです。英語で分かりやすく説明してくれました。ただ体験後に他の予定を入れている方は、事前に帰りの送迎の時間などを聞いておいたほうが良いと思います。

Wonderful surf experience. The instructor - Soufiane - was amazing. The small group size (just four in my class) allowed for personalized coaching for each of us. Soufiane was really knowledgeable and did a great job of explaining everything (in English). I had never surfed before, and my classmates were all pretty new to surfing too), but he had us all successfully standing and riding waves. He even took pictures for us and extended the session at least 1/2 hour longer than it was supposed to go. Really great experience, highly recommended!

Myself and 2 friends had an amazing time at our surf lesson! Our teacher was really knowledgable, fun and informative. He was brilliant at tailoring his approach to individual abilities, managing to work with a group of 6 of us in total, all at different levels. We weren’t booked onto the afternoon session but he got us lunch anyway (which was delicious) and played some frisbee on the beach with us in between teaching others. He also had great local knowledge of the area so was able to answer questions about ruins and wildlife on the horizon. 10/10 would recommend to anyone interested in surfing in Essaouira!

I did not think it was possible for me to actually stand up on a surfboard since I had never surfed before but Soufiane taught me how to stand up, ride and even steer a little in just 2 hours! I was lucky to be the only student for this lesson, and Soufiane really made it worthwhile for me. He is very professional and kind and easy to talk to. And he even recorded some videos of me surfing. Everything was perfect! I am so happy I booked with him! 100% recommended :)

Excellente expérience surf à Essaouira. Sofiane est un professeur formidable! Très pro (il vient vous chercher à votre hôtel) et très pédagogue et patient notamment pour les débutants comme moi. En quelques jours il m'a permis de progresser et apprécier cette activité. Et le cadre est vraiment magique, d'ailleurs nous changions souvent de spot pour découvrir les différentes plages, ce qui est un bon moyen de visiter. Je recommande !!!
