On arrival to Essaouira, I will choose the best surf spot for your ability and begin the 2-hour surf lesson. After our surf session, we will go for lunch at one of the local restaurants on the seaside with a panoramic view of the Mogador islands, and the fortress of Essaouira where they filmed the famous TV show Game of Thrones.

Come and join me for this full-day surf experience available all year!

Hey! I'm Karim owner and founder of Marrakech Surf & Snow tour company. I've been surfing for 17 years, and I have 13 years of experience in teaching. I am a qualified surf instructor who speaks English, French, and Arabic.

I love to see the excitement in someone's eyes when they do something for the first time, like catch their first wave, I remember the rush and being part of it all the more better.

The beauty of surfing there are so many killer places to check out, I have lived and worked in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, California, and Hawaii. but, there is no place like home.

Das war ein wirklich toller Ausflug! Karim verfügt über ein großes Know how und kann einen viele hilfreiche sowie interessante Infos über das Land mit auf dem Weg geben. Karim achtet sehr stark darauf, das beste aus dem Tag herauszuholen und achtet beim Surfen so zum Beispiel auf die beste Tageszeit (Ebbe, Flut etc.). Er hat alles in Ruhe erklärt und war mit Herzblut dabei. Top!!!

We really had a great day, it was well worth the long drive. We were very happy to be in a nice and modern car for the day. The surf lesson itself was a lot of fun and it really felt like we've learned something. Karim was very friendly and helpful, we can highly recommend this experience and are looking forward to joining on more experiences with Karim. Thank you!

It was a unique surfing experience. Karim was very knowledgeable of the local surfing and surfing in general. His instructions were detailed and tailored to my skill level. This was better than other surfing lessons I’ve had before. He also gave us a great tour of the town of Essaouira, and we got to see the locations for season two of game of thrones. And he showed us the best shops to buy souvenirs.

Awesome experience. Karim was extremely knowledge and made the drive to and back from Essaouira very enjoyable. He brought all the necessary equipment (that wet suit was critical). Karim definitely made me very comfortable (I'm a beginner surfer) and gave tons of guidance so I could be successful. He has a ton of experience too so was able to pick the right area of the beach for us to go given the wind/tide/waves etc. After surfing his local knowledge of the area was on point as well, we wouldn't have been able to get some of the unique picture angles without him guiding. The trip basically hit on everything I was looking for (exploring Essaiouira and have a great surf trip!) Would definitely recommend it!

One of the best parts of our trip to Morocco! Everything: pick-up, trip out, goats on trees, walk through Essaouira, visiting Game is Thrones filming locations, seafood lunch, surfing... everything was spot on and a total blast. Even with heavy winds, Karim just went with the flow and stayed super patient with our terrible surfing skills :) Essaouira was also so relaxed and beautiful - wish we could have stayed longer! Karim was awesome, you should book!
