We can highly recommend the trip! We had a perfect experience and a really great time during the surf trip with our two, super nice teachers Samady and Otman. We tried surfing for the very first time. We were picked up, got very good equitment at the surf school. And after some very helpful explanations and practice on the beach, we went into the water. With the supporting and motivating help of our teachers we managed to catch our first waves in no time. We learned very much and were able to surf by ourselves after we did the course. We give 11 out of 10 stars. :D

Très agréable expérience avec un encadrement très sympathique. Bonne qualité du matériel (planche, combo). Essaouira est vraiment idéale pour le surf. Et si je n’ai jamais réussi à me mettre debout ce n’est vraiment pas leur faute !

정말 서핑하고 싶어서 에사우리아에 갔던 거였는데 진짜 파도가 계속 오고 진짜 제대로 서핑을 즐길 수 있었습니다. 그리고 선생님 진짜 친절하게 잘 알려주시고 파도 잘 탈 수 있도록 도와줘서 잘 탈 수 있었어요. 파도 잘타면 칭찬해주고 끄릭고 썬쌩님 쎅씨하께 쌩꼈어요. 수상스포츠 좋아하시면 진짜 추천합니다.

Such an experience! I would absolutely recommend this surfing lesson to friends. Our instructor was super friendly, was fluent in english, so supportive and inclusive as to our beginner level surfing. He told us a bit about himself and shared stories about his surfing experience. He even let us use some loafers to cover our foots while walking. Would recommend! Jeg er veldig fornøyd med erfaringer, og vil definitivt komme tilbake til Essaouira, og kanskke da prøve noe annet en surfing hos dem. Verdt pengene og hyggelige folk!
