OVERVIEW

It’s a miracle to take off on a wave, going down the side, popping up on the other end, and still be alive! Surfing Camp Morocco welcomes surfers to experience the sheer euphoria of just staying alive.

Along the African country’s southern coast by the wild waves of Atlantic and at the feet of the Atlas Mountains, sits the newage Moroccan city of Agadir. Eclectic mixes of rich cultural influences have poured into the city. You are going to find yourself sitting at quaint little melancholy French cafes looking out into the narrow bustling streets of inner town, beachfront eateries or luxurious Italian diners buzzing with verve, exploring exclusive Spanish tapas, boutique shops, and walking amidst the delightful commotion at local souks.

Outside the Agadir Marina, there lies the ocean glistening invitingly in the warm tropical sun for surfing hearts to come take a ride on the friendly waves. Quiet beaches, gentle waves that beginners can warm up on, beach breaks and bays, smallish natural reefs--- there’s everything in Agadir a surfer could ask for.

On the morocco surfing camp you get to scout the waves around a number of exquisite spots, receive expert coaching, safely be a novice, and upon swaying back to the shore when tired get to pamper yourself with fresh catch cooked meals from the local fishermen. Come on board in Agadir to enjoy caressing splashes coming on from left, right, and center everyday and ride on high into the sunset!

Whether you are about to take baby steps into sea surfing or have been riding on the crest for many years, your surf game can get better only with more times in diverse choppy oceans. Here’s what a guided tour to the best spots in Agadir looks like:

Pointe d’lmesouane

This part is located near Agadir’s cathedral. You will be exposed to fierce waves in the tide coming on in lefts. During the nip tide, there are more rights to tackle. On the far side of Imsouane, there’s a magical deep bay. One can surf in it to tackle 900 m of a neat wave. Post-surf, a nourishing meal of fresh seafood will await you in the local fishermen shacks.

Tamri

Another well loved surfline in Agadir, for the ultra consistent beach break around this place. You can experience strong currents and the quickback sections creating a steady beach push in the sea near Tamri. Though a fun ride all in all, beginners need to stay aware of how far you have drifted away from the shoreline. The luxuriant estuary near here is home to camels and flamingos, etc.

If you are quite the experienced surfer, feel free to stray and check out the sand banks in front he cliffs where left handers come off great!

Killer Point

More treats for advanced surf-heads. The rights are as strong as it gets at Killer Point and the best comes to you spot on in the mid-tide. So, wait for your ecstatic moment!

La Source

Here we have the reef parts that every surfer coming to Morocco wants to get a hang of. Stay tuned here for the swell during high tide.

Mystery

Another small reef in Agadir surfing scene, this place is good for rights in the low tide, the swell getting as diminutive as 1.5 m.

Panorama’s

This surfing point is recommended in the nip tides, perfect for tenderfoots to learn tackling. Right by the surfing corner, there’s a small sandy beach designated for hash lovers!

Banana Beach

You can’t complain about currents here, there is none! And there are guaranteed strong rights to be had.

Le rocher du Diable (Devil’s Rock)

Perfect waves for ebb tides and perfect rising until 1.5 m, ensuring some hell of good rights!
