About This Center
We specialise in authentic surf and yoga holidays providing exceptional customer service and great value at stunning locations in one the world’s greatest surfing destinations.
We operate several locations including a boutique hotel, villa, serviced apartments, yoga retreat centre, and surf shop and surf school as well as a number of cafes.
Surf Maroc was founded by Ben and Ollie in 2003 with 5 boards, a few old wetsuits, and even older Transit van.
With no grand scheme or master plan we have grown organically through demand and popularity. Shaped and nurtured by the desires and needs of ours guests and under the inspiration of those who work here. We’re obsessed with surf and yoga, but it’s the people who work with us and just as importantly, the people who stay with us, that create the special atmosphere that makes Surf Maroc what it is.
Today, Surf Maroc operates a collection of four epic oceanfront locations, each of which is conceived solely to provide surf and yoga holidays and run by a professional team of people who are passionate about hospitality. From making your booking to organising your airport transfer, from your surf lessons to your accommodation, there is someone making sure you are taken care of and having a good time.
If you stay with us expect amazing waves, delicious food, great weather (all year round), beautiful accommodation, good people, and good vibes. Our doors are open for everyone, weather you are a beginner or pro, singleton or family, guy or girl, young or old.
We had an amazing week at Villa Taghazout! Wafa and Ola were fantastic hosts, the food was delicious - and the afternoon cake is a must, the room was super nice, clean and bright and we enjoyed so much the surf and yoga classes! Big up to our surf instructors Bahsine and Said! ~ Anouk M
Venue HighlightsTHE SURF:
99% of the time there is always somewhere to surf, with a NW and SW facing coastline we are blessed with mulitple options what ever the conditions. The summer months (April – October) see small to medium swells with surfing mostly taking place on the beaches and reefs on the more exposed north west coast, this is great time for anyone looking for fun, uncrowded warm water surf. During the winter months ( October – March) the waves that have made Morocco famous come to life and world class surf and leg achingly long rides are a everyday occurrence.
We have three in-house yoga teachers, who offer inspiring, uplifting, and fun yoga classes for all abilities. Yoga goes hand in hand with surfing in our opinion and it’s an important part of the Surf Maroc ethos; we take it seriously and operate one of the best yoga retreat centers in Morocco. Our fantastic teachers expertly blend Core Power Yoga, creative Vinyasa Flow, Anasara, Hatha, Restorative and Yin Yoga. We run 2 open yoga classes every day at Amouage from 7 – 8am, 6-7pm as well as two workshops three times a week 4.30-5.30pm Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays (days may vary).
AccommodationsWe have a small collection of oceanfront locations in and around Morocco’s surf capital.
