Morocco Surfcamp

Taghazoute, Morocco

All year round

Surfing, sunbathing & sensational sunsets.

What’s not to like? Year ’round sun, world class waves, a local chef whipping up your every meal, sunrises over the Sahara and sunsets over the Atlantic, panoramic ocean views from our ocean front balcony, after surf beers and wacky tobaccy in your shisha pipe. And that’s just the half of it!

Our packages are for everyone, from the seasoned surfer to those who simply want to wet their toes and sun their bellies. Our instructors specialise in teaching absolute beginners how to find their feet, and in taking those who want to step it up a bit to the multitude of world class waves dotted around this peninsula (you can see three of them from our hostel).

PRICE: 60€/ 95AU$/ 70US$/ £50 per night all-inclusive

City & Surf Tour

Runs Thursday/Friday until Sunday/Monday but if you want us to be flexible you know that we can.

The best of all worlds. Fly into Marrakesh and be met at the airport by your own personal chauffeur, spend a night in a hostel by the main square, the world famous Djemaa el Fna, shop until you drop and then shop some more, bathe yourself in a traditional bath house (we’d love to say that nudity is optional, but sometimes it just ain’t. When in Marrakesh…) and eat dinner surrounded by snake charmers.

The next day we set off along the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains to the coast. This short drive takes us through some truly breathtaking landscapes where the 30 degree desert heat is complimented by the high snow-capped mountains to the south. Upon our arrival in Taghazoute surf village, Morocco, we’ll go for a surf. Then we’ll lay in the sun. Then we’ll go home and smoke some shisha and drink some beers and socialise like chimps until we decide it’s time to either a) go to bed, b) start a beach party, or c) head into rocking Agadir for a night on the tiles.

Once we wake up we wash the hangover away with hot coffee and a substantial breakfast before hitting the waves again. Then we pack it all up and head to Marrakesh, so we can get our flights back to the real world, loaded with souvenirs, suntans and an addiction to surfing that will last forever.

PRICE: 250€/ AU$390/ US$280/ £195 all-inclusive

  • A day at the Morocco Surf Palace

    This is a guide itinerary with everything in the all inclusive package. Times are a guide only. Morocco is very chilled out, so things tend to happen when they happen and no one worries too much what time of day it is.

  • On the edge of the Sahara

    Whilst you can see Morocco from the cities of Southern Spain, once you’re on the ground you’ll realize that you couldn’t be further away… in a wonderful way! This is North Africa baby! This is a place of camels and forts and snake charmers. Where date palms grow out of sandy deserts, and kids run up to your car snotty-faced asking for sweet, sweet candy.
    Our surf palace is located in the south of Morocco, in the village of Taghazoute, near the resort city of Agadir. An area so lovely the King of Morocco has his beach palace down there. Here the High Atlas Mountains complete their run down to the North Atlantic Ocean, where goats reside in trees and where fishermen make their nightly drift out to the horizon on seaworthy car tyre inner tubes.
    Taghazoute is a stereotypical North African fishing village, with a series of narrow lanes winding either side of the one road, Highway 1, which runs through it’s middle and provides the village’s central focal point. Along this road there are a handful of shops, a marketplace and mosque and a few hotels. You can walk through Taghazoute along Highway 1 from end to end in about 5 minutes, which is taking into account stopping to pat cats and high five locals.

    The Surf Palace

    The Stoke Travel Surf Palace is located just off Highway 1. Located right on the water’s edge, the palace is populated with sun worshipers and surf rats from every corner of the globe, and they can be found lounging on our balcony watching the sea and checking out the waves. There is a combination of shared and private accommodation, though most nights you’ll pass out on the balcony with the ever-clear North African night sky twinkling away above you.

    *A note on the balcony, because it deserves it. This balcony is amazing and is definitely the focal point of the house. This is where we eat, drink tea, share stories, chug beers and smoke hookah. This is the place where you can play a game of chess or kiss a beautiful stranger. We BBQ here, we surf the net, we sloth around and we dry our wetsuits. From this balcony, you can check the surf at three of Morocco’s best breaks, from this balcony the sunset will burn so bright and beautiful your eyes will bleed, from this balcony the sounds of a Moroccan fishing village will drift up and mingle with chatter from all around the world. This is THE balcony.

  • Come fly to us…

    This is really the only practical way to get here. Because it’s on another continent fool! (Unless you live in Africa, thereby making us the fool). Anyway, to get here grab a flight to either Agadir, which is the airport nearest the surf palace, or to Marrakesh, which is also close-ish and usually cheaper, and with more frequent flights.

    The airlines we usually fly with are Ryanair, Easyjet and Royal Air Maroc. Like with most of these trips the earlier you book the cheaper it will be. So book now!

    If you are flying to Agadir we can fetch you from the airport. Just be sure to send us your flight details.

    If you land in Marrakesh you can either prearrange a taxi to take you to the Surf Palace, or make your own way here on the public bus (see details below). In any case we’ll go through all of this with you personally when you book.

    Once you land you might need to take the bus

    CTM and Supratours run frequent buses from Marrakech to Agadir. The trip takes about three and a half hours and costs a measly 10€. When you land grab a cab  and head to the terminal (they leave from different terminals, choose one and tell your cab driver).

    There’s no need to book a ticket in advance, and even if you needed to you couldn’t. This is North Africa dudes.

    Once in Agadir take a taxi to Taghazoute, the surfing village. It’s really small, so just get dropped bang in the centre of the main road. And once in Taghazoute, ask for Surf Taghazoute.

    Surf Taghazoute Address:
    Taghazout KM 20
    Route d; Essaouira
    Agadir – Morocco
    Lost or confused in Africa? Call Said on: 00212633106632
  • Enter your concerns, questions or mum’s bra size in the Ask a Question tab and we’ll be sure to get back to you as soon as we sober up.

    Is Morocco Safe?
    Yes. The most dangerous thing in Morocco is coming across an angry goat after you’ve had too many cans of Stork beer, or underestimating the strength of the wacky tobaccy in your shisha pipe.

    So what should we bring?
    Yourself, something to swim in, something to party in, something warm for the night times, something pleasant for the fuzzy tingle times. Bring sunscreen and condoms, because they’re hard to get here, and bring a bottle of spirits as they cost a bit down here. Bring a camera so you can get shots of goats in trees.

    What if I’ve never surfed a day in my life?
    Stress less. That’s why we have our tanned, toned and dedicated surf instructors to teach you grommets how to surf like a pro. We have 2 hours of surf lessons per day dedicated to beginners, so you will be riding those waves in no time.

    Aren’t there Muslims in Morocco?
    Yes. Many. Nearly everyone. And they are lovely, except when they have to go to the mosque at 5am and the loud speakers act as the town’s alarm clock.

    Do you have short boards I can ride to show off my sweet cut back skills?
    We have short boards and long learning boards for all levels. Start with a mal and upgrade or switch it up for the rolling waves.

    I heard alcohol was illegal in Morocco, is that true?
    Ha, hahaha, oh god, you guys are cracking me up! Do you think we’d be down there if that was true? Oh my oh my, too funny!

    What’s the weather going to be like?
    We’re on the edge of the Sahara so it’s going to be hot and sunny during the day and a little chilly at night. It never rains, except when it rains, which is exceptional.

    Wait. What? Goats in trees?
    Yeah, in Morocco the goats hang out in the trees. It’s pretty sweet.

    And food, what’s up with the food?
    Breakfast is cereals and bread with cheese, jam and chocolate spread, coffee and tea and juice, usually. Though like all wonderful things in this universe it can change. Lunch is a sandwich made with love and served on the beach. And by sandwich we’re talking long, strong and full of cumin… And other delicious ingredients with some fruit on the side. Dinner varies between a fair few Moroccan faves, like tagine, or cous cous (so good they named it twice) or little fish fried to delightfulness, or massive BBQs with a little of everything and it is always served with plenty of salad and bread and it’s always so sweet.

    But Stoke,  I don’t eat meat!
    Don’t worry there little one, there are plenty of vegetarian friendly options down here in Morocco. Get on it!
