What you'll do

There are a lot of a beautiful old fishing villages dotted along the coast and within driving distance from Essaouira. These also offer secluded beaches which are great for surfing and the perfect place to spend a relaxing day.

This is a full day trip so I will pick you up in the morning and we will head to wherever the conditions look best that day. We will start with a 2 hour lesson which includes ocean awareness and safety, warm-up exercises and beach drills to practice your technique. No worries if you are a complete beginner, we will start with the basics and it won't be long before you are out in the water and trying to catch waves.

We will enjoy a picnic lunch on the beach and some tasty Moroccan treats. Then in the afternoon you will have some free time to get back out there and practice what you have learned that morning. Don't worry, I will still be on hand to offer guidance and make sure you are safe in the water.

We’re very passionate about the sport and love meeting new people and helping them experience that thrill of getting out in the water and catching some waves.

Where you'll be

There are lots of great and secluded surfing spots close to Essaouira but sometimes you just need a local to help you find them! Based on the wind forecast, swell direction, wave size and tides, I will pick the spot which will offer the best surf conditions that particular day. This is a great way for you to explore the surrounding area and discover some of the beautiful villages and unspoiled beaches along our coastline.

Unfortunately our host was not able to provide this experience for us, and sent us out with one of his friends. The instructor forgot his wetsuit so he just stood on the beach and watched us. It was too loud and too far for us to hear any feedback from him. It’s very hard to have a surf lesson when your instructor isn’t even in the water with you.

It was an absolut great experience! It was our first time surfing and he was a great and patient teacher. And we were really glad that we booked the whole day! Cause in the beginning you need the time to practice and understand the lessons. But you need also the afternoon to get the some succesfull experience which will for sure make you fall in love for this Sport and you dont wanna get out of the water. Until you cant move your body anymore...^^

An amazing and thrilling experience. Would definitely recommend trying it at least once. My wife may disagree and say it was more frightening than thrilling but enjoyed the experience of being taken away and some what beaten up by the ocean. Soufiane made the experience very enjoyable and personal. Would highly recommend spending a day with him
