Original Surf Morocco
Reviews (5)
5 out of 5

Our surf camp is a traditional, Berber to style Moroccan home with four levels. We offer simple, clean and comfortable accommodation within walking distance of popular beaches and surf breaks! We can accommodate 21 people in a range of private and shared rooms with 4 bathrooms. Our chef serves incredible authentic Moroccan cuisine, or European if you prefer, and we can accommodate dietary restrictions. We have a large selection of surfboards and wetsuits, and our experienced instructors are able to improve your surfing no matter what your level is.

Location

Tamraght is a lovely small Berber fishing village located on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean and one of the most consistent surf spots in the region. Banana Village (Aourir) is a few minutes’ drive to the south. Taghazout village is a quick drive to the north, and the city of Agadir is 15km to the south. These areas are connected by the #32 bus as well as taxis. We can arrange transportation and airport transfers.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

I really enjoyed my stay at Original Surf Morocco - the place is so relaxed!

Even though it was low season and I was the only one at the camp I never felt lonely or alone and yet never felt overwhelmed either, it's a really convivial atmosphere.

Abdullah (the owner) is a really chilled out and accommodating guy with a ready smile & a totally hospitable attitude - he and his brother Omar (the amazing cook) dealt with my gluten free requirements no problem, even though it's totally at odds with the moroccan diet.

Yoga with Chanti on the terrace was also a highlight as we're the nightly dinners with Abdullah, Ann & Yussef whilst watching the sunset, I felt really blissed and chilled out at all times- so much so that I can't wait to return next year.


How were the surf lessons?

     

The surf instructors Yussef and Yassim are two patient and fun guys - but SO cheeky! (Watch out girls! Lol.) They got me standing up on the first day and were really patient with me when I was failing thereafter. They also usually share a meal or two with you at the camp and will answer any questions you have about the local area or Moroccan culture in general- they're really lovely guys.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

I went to Original Surf Morocco with 3 other girls and from the moment we arrived I felt completely welcome and at home. Every morning we got up and did an hours yoga on the terrace with a view of the see and the wonderful Fee as our teacher who was absolutely lovely and the best start to the day. Then a good brekki (had the most amazing cake one day).
After surf, we came back in the evenings for dinner and a chill out where we learnt some crazy Moroccan card game or some Uno or Jenga or chatting to Ann who has some brilliant travel stories. One day we had a trip out to Paradise Valley which was a beautiful place to visit.

As well as a great surfing experience, we also learnt a lot about Morrocan culture with the guys being open and ready to answer any particular questions that we had. I definitely learnt a lot.

I would happily go and stay here on my own as well as everyone here just made you feel you were part of the family. I was so sad to leave and will definitely be back.


How were the surf lessons?

     

Surfing with Youssef and Yassim with good tunes for the drive down and always wondering what the amazing packed lunch was going to be. The guys were so patient for teaching the surfing, with brilliant sense of humour even when they were constantly repeating themselves.

Abdullah (the owner) also joined in on some surf lessons and like the other guys was incredibly patient and encouraging. I have never been quite so determined to want to achieve something and definitely have the surfing bug now.

I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good surfing experience/ wants to try this for the first time and to completely relax and enjoy some good food and company.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Really liked the atmosphere - as if resting at good friends! It was very nice and interesting to talk to in the evenings after surfing at Camp. Despite the language barrier (my wife and I know very little English), it was not a problem to find a common language. The guys are always ready to listen and to help! Clean and comfortable rooms, decorated in the local style. Very tasty and varied local food (breakfast and dinner in the Camp, and sandwiches on the beach). Special thanks to Omar for the meals! During the 10 days of our stay there dishes have never repeated! I would like once again to thank all the staff Original Surf Morocco for a great vacation! Thank you very much!!!!


How were the surf lessons?

     

Our surfing instructor was Youssef. His approach to teaching his personal and effective. For 10 days, he taught us to confidently stand on the board, and this, despite the fact that we surfed for the first time!

How did you like the accommodation?

     

I cannot rate the Original Surf camp highly enough. Being a solo traveller and in low surf season the camp was not busy, but the staff made it feel like i was not holidaying alone.

The camp itself is very nice - the roof terrace is lovely, as is the food (and there is plenty of it).

Overall i would recommend and would like to return.


How were the surf lessons?

     

I had a couple of days surfing in the UK before hand so was looking to improve and gain experience. In surfing terms, the instructors were very good, on the beach and in the sea. they knew how to surf well and knew how to teach (English was not a problem).

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Was initially looking for a yoga retreat and then came across surfing and yoga which sounded exciting. After looking at the reviews, Original Surf Morocco stood out the most.
The food was lovely, every meal was different and water was provided daily. We went in Low season so the surf camp was very quiet but it didn't stop us having a great time. All the staff made us feel welcome and we didn't want to leave! You really feel like part of a family!


How were the surf lessons?

     

Neither of us had surfed before but now we both can't wait to surf again. Hopefully coming back next April. Youssef was our surf instructor. He was really patient and gave us lots of encouragement, so much so, we were standing by Day 2/3! As well as teaching us to surf during the day, driving us about and showing us the sights, he went out of his way to look after us, helping us become acquainted with the local area. On top of that he devoted his time to get to know us on the evenings.

The surrounding 10km area of Taghazout & Tamraght have gained legendary status as a surf mecca and without doubt Morocco's surf capital. There are not many places in the world that have waves accessible to beginner, intermediate and advanced surfers but this area has it all.

Taghazout waves includes the beginner/intermediate surf spots Panaromas & Hash's Point. Further south is the long stretch of beach that leads to the next town of Tamraght, a fantastic learner area with two advanced breaks at the south end Devils Rock & Banana Point.

On the north end of town is Moroccos most famous wave, Anchor Point, a world class long right break. And around this headland is La Source & Killers, another two of Moroccos most reliable & famous waves.

10km further north is the town of Tamri which has a great selection of beginner & intermediate waves as well as a few secret spots.
