Ananas Kitesurfing & Surfing
Reviews (7)
5 out of 5

Riads are incredible places to stay. You might not even know you are looking at a Riad even if you are right in front of one. Most of the doors in Morocco are wooden with carvings on them, and many riads are no exceptions. You might be surprised when a simple door opens into a gorgeous guesthouse, giving an authentic Moroccan experience. You will be able to view the intricate Moroccan architecture with its beautiful tile work. There, you will meet kitesurfers from all over the world, creating a very special atmosphere.

Dar Nafoura Mogador is located in the heart of Medina within walking distance of the souks,restaurants, bars and the beach. All its comfortable bedrooms are decorated in traditional Moroccan style with suite bathroom and a separate living space. Our Riad has lounges and a private terrace perfect for relaxing under the sun. Delicious breakfast is included and guests may also have dinner upon request.

We’ll happily help you organize your stay and can recommend places to visit, restaurants, camel or horse riding, transfers from airports, car rental and much more.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

The accommodation was in a typical Morrocan house (riad). This was totally new experience for me and I enjoyed my stay.

How were the surf lessons?

     

I liked the way lessons were provided. I have managed to stand on the board already during my first day.
I will definitely continue to surf.
Anas was patient and he explained everything in clear way.

I had kitesurfing lessons and the experience was ourstanding. Ananas kitesurfing is using top quality gear-Core kites, the staff is really professional and you can see that they know what they doing. One evening i was with the team for BBQ- delicious fresh seefood from the market with vegetable grilled Ananas way :)
Great school and great team and I felt l was with friends exploring a new place and just a customer paying for services.
I had also 2 hours surf lessons and free use of surfing board- which was great when the wind was down.

Thank you Anas for a wanderfull Essaouira experience. Will be back??

I don't usually write any reviews but the time with Ananas Kitesurfing was too stunningly amazing not to share it.
My friend and I are both beginners and Anas created a perfect and inexpensive package for us. Since we didn't know the area we trusted him with accomodation. Afterwards I realized that it was even cheaper than if I had booked it myself.
The kitesurfing lessons were professional and fun. Anas is obviously qualified and very experienced, which made me feel comfortable on the water all the time. Also I recommend watching him kitesurf, it's very enjoyable. He was patient yet always tried to make me perform better and better, a succesful combination.
But the most special part about Ananas Kitesurfing is the experience on land. Most water sports instructors I've worked with only cared about their sport and coolness. Anas is different. Very different. He is intelligently funny, interested in cultural exchange, trust-worthy and a knowlegeable guide and friend.
He invited us for dinner, gave us advice on good places to have a drink, went shopping with us on the market, helped us get the very best prices, showed us secret spots in town, went camel riding with us during sunset, all of it in his free time.
It's the first time I have the feeling that I didn't join a school but went to visit a friend.

Great salty time!
We had a great and instructive time with Ananas Kitesurfing. We‘ve booked a package for three days kitesurfing, accomodation, camel ride and barbecue included for a very good price!
The instructor is a really professional and personable guy and is also able teaching in French, English and German.
Even as a beginner I felt myself in very good hands and it was so much fun that I extended the course for two more days!
I‘ve seen the way other schools are teaching their clients and in opposite to them, Ananas kitesurfing takes the time to treat every customer individually and also in small groups!
From what I have seen in Essaouira, I‘d recommend Ananas Kitesurfing for its professionality, expertise and custemor-kindness.

If you’re looking for a kitesurf or surfschool in Essaouira, go to this place! Very nice people, they really know what they’re doing, good material and they speak english (and many other languages) very well. We went there for surflessons but unexpectedly there was wind and Anas totally understood we then wanted to kitesurf:) They just want you to have a nice day on the water and the whole crew is there to support you the best they can!
Nice plus is that Abdel Photography was there to make pictures of the kite session!

Amazing kite surfing holiday! Highly recommended.
Great instructors who are very patient and informative, who go out their way to ensure you have a great holiday! They also organised surfing and horse riding for us too as well as a typical Moroccan dinner with a trip to the fish market and then a bbq - really great evening. Definitely 5* and I will be returning!

How were the surf lessons?

     

Bei unserem Trip nach Marocco, sind wir in Essaouira gelandet. Durch Zufall, aber wer glaubt schon an Zufälle? Haben wir Anas getroffen.

Anas ist ein Multitalent. Er ist ein empathisch, humorvoller, geduldiger Lehrer. Er spricht fließend französich, englisch und Deutsch.

Ich habe mich keinen Moment unwohl oder unverstanden gefühlt.
Alles war super verständlich erklärt.

Er verfügt über hervorragendes, gepflegtes Equipment (core).

Die Umgebung ist sehr entspannt. Man fühlt den Spirit von Bob Marley.
Der Strand in Essaouira scheint endlos zu sein.

Sollte mal kein Wind sein (kommt vermutlich kaum vor), könnt ihr am Strand auf Pferden oder Kamele reiten.

Es war mega!!! Anas du bist großartig!!
