What to Expect

Saturday: Arrival

Say farewell to gloomy days and catch an afternoon flight to Agadir on Morocco’s stunning western coast.

Your host is waiting to whisk you off to your beach side accommodation in Taghazout (1 hour).

Settle in, grab some dinner, and hangout on your terrace and listen to the waves crashing below.

Sunday and Monday: Learn to surf

Breakfast overlooking the ocean, then you’re off to one of the famous local surf spots. Your host will drive you to the best beach for the day’s conditions so you always have prime waves to catch.

You’ll learn the ins and outs of surfing from a passionate and professional surf instructor. Practice all morning in sparkling blue water backed by vivid red hills.

When you’re hungry, catch a wave into the beach for a picnic lunch and a nap in the shade.

Paddle back out for more exhilarating surfing. As the sun gets lower in the sky it’s time to head to your accommodation to shower off the salt.

Stretch sore muscles with an optional sunset yoga session, then explore the town to find dinner at one of Taghazout’s many excellent restaurants.

There’s still time to wander the village and do some shopping before you’re off to bed for a well-deserved night of sleep.

Tuesday: Surfing and departure

It’s your last day of paradise. Linger over breakfast and enjoy that awesome view one more time.

At the beach you’ll hone your skills with a final morning lesson. You’ve come a long way, so now you get to work on the finer points of surfing, like turning and maintaining speed.

Spend the afternoon carving glassy waves and admiring the postcard-perfect Moroccan landscape.

Enjoy your last ride in the evening, then it’s off to Taghazout to clean up before catching your flight home.

Location

Taghazout is a small, laid-back fishing village on Morocco’s central west coast. It’s become a mecca for European surfers, with surf spots like the Panoramas, Hash Point and world-famous Anchor Point just minutes away. The town itself is very small (pop. 5000), but there are surf shops, restaurants, pharmacies, Moroccan handicrafts and more.

Lining the coast north and south of town are numerous surf spots with a variety of perfect waves, from sandy-bottomed beginners’ waves, to long, glassy point breaks. In winter, storms in the north Atlantic generate long period groundswells that travel thousands of miles to the coast producing the clean waves the area is famous for.

Finish point?
Your trip will end back at Agadir Airport on Tuesday evening. You can choose any flight on Tuesday, however we suggest to book flights departing at 19:00 or later, so you can still chase waves all day. Your host will be in touch before the trip to finalise details.

There is a huge variety of surf in this area of Morocco, from perfectly mellow beginner waves to challenging reef ledges. Beginner and intermediate surfers will find plenty of waves year round. Due to the nature of the coastline there is almost always somewhere sheltered and manageable, but those looking for a challenge won’t be disappointed either.

Each morning will start with surf lessons, then you’re free to enjoy the waves for the rest of the day. You’ll learn the following skills:

  • Proper stance
  • How to paddle
  • How to transition to standing (the “pop up”)
  • How to keep your speed when riding waves
  • Turning
  • Surf etiquette
  • Surf safety
  • How to read the beach (waves, rips and currents)

This trip is suitable for complete beginners or intermediate surfers who want to work on their skills. Your instructor will adjust every lesson to your skill level. The only requirement is that you can swim and tread water.

Even though Taghazout is primarily a surfing destination, there are plenty of other things to do. You can hike in Paradise Valley, go on a camel ride, have a spa experience at a hammam, get henna, practice yoga, or shop the souks.

Breakfasts are traditional Moroccan pancakes, served with jam and butter, and accompanied by freshly baked French baguettes, egg, coffee and tea.

Packed lunches include sandwiches or salads, soda, biscuits and fruit.

There are plenty of restaurants in town serving inexpensive, delicious Moroccan and international food. You can get some great couscous and tajines. Pizzas and hamburgers are served as well. Three times a week your hosts organise a group dinner at the Surf Camp for anyone who wants to join.

Tap water is fine for washing and brushing teeth, but it is not recommended for drinking. Bottled mineral water is cheap (5 dirhams) and available everywhere, or bring a water purifier to keep plastic out of the ocean.

Vegetarian and vegan diets can be accommodated. Just make a request when booking.

Morocco is a year-round destination with great surf and weather. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, you’re unlikely to encounter rain.

The summer months see warm temperatures (air 20 – 30 °C; sea 18 – 21 °C) and small to medium swells. Winter months have cooler but very pleasant temperatures (air 18 – 26 °C; sea 16 – 20 °C) and the biggest waves.
