We got picked up at 8 in the morning from our hotel in a comfortable 8 seater vehicle with AC and a driver (Abdel) who took good care of us, let us play our music via Bluetooth. We had a couple stops to fuel up with some food, and another to check out some natural organic argan oils where we got to see the process in how they're made. We also stopped for some pictures due to the great scenary. The surfing itself was fun and good for beginner level people such as our group. The beach was quite windy and the waves were active and not big so you really get the chance to try to learn, though it was still very difficult to successfully ride waves on the surfing board. It was still fun and our driver Abdel also have us time after the surfing to eat and explore the beach and area of Essaouira that we were in. We ended the day playing some beach football before heading back. Abdel really took care of us and made the trip fun and was a great guide for us in this day trip. Thank you to the surfing team and to Abdel
Une incroyable journée à Essaouira ! L'initiation au surf est un moment rempli de joie et de partage. Pas besoin d'être expert pour se régaler, l'equipe vous accompagne du début à la fin. Un grand merci à Zaid pour tout le savoir transmis pendant la visite de la medina d'Essaouira, un excellent guide! Et merci à Abdel de nous avoir accompagnés tout le long et d'avoir partagé avec nous la culture marocaine! Florian & Margaux
This is the second time I’ve used Marrakech snow and surf. Several years ago I did the same trip and we brought the surf board with us from Marrakech. This time, they organized surf lessons through Loving Surf in Essaouira. Both experiences were great. We managed to fit in some cultural things too: stopping at a low pressure Argan oil collective on the drive out and a two hour city tour after surfing. Other tours can book an entire van, this was just two of us. Essaouira also has a lot better shopping than Marrakech — lower (marked) prices and less haggling. Don’t buy souvenirs ahead of time in the souks. Highly recommend.
Super visite à Essaouira. Le trajet avec Karim a duré plus ou moins 2heures pour l'aller et pour le retour. A l'allé, nous avons fait un premier stop, où nous avons pu apercevoir des chèvres sur des arbres, c'était une expérience super et étonnante ! La journée à Essaouira était magique, Karim très gentil et agréable, nous a fait visité la ville et montré quelques endroits où des scènes de Games of Thrones on été tourné. Ensuite, la session de surf était très chouette et nous avons eu de la chance car le temps était au rendez-vous. Bref, tout ça pour dire que si vous voulez passer une journée inoubliable à Essaouira, partez avec Marrakech Surf & Snow!!
We had a really nice day with Karim in Essaouira! He gave a great surf lesson and a nice tour around Essaouira where we got to see some nice spots and some of the places where the Game of Thrones series was made. The car ride there is quite long (2,5 hours) but we got to see beautiful landscape on the way so it was definitely worth it.
If you visit Marrakech and you are an active person you cannot miss this trip! Karim is a lovely trustworthy guide who will male sure you’ll get The best out of your experience!
C'était notre première expérience bookée sur TripAdvisor et pas déçus du tout ! Karim est un super guide, très à l'écoute, pédagogue et très gentil. Il nous a récupéré au Café de France de Marrakech dans un van. Nous étions avec deux allemandes seulement et ce petit groupe était optimal pour apprendre le surf. Nous avons fait un stop à la coopérative féminine d'huile d'argan avant d'arriver à Essaouira. Les vagues ne sont pas trop hautes, c'est parfait pour apprendre à surfer face aux dromadaires endormis sur la plage ! :) Après 2h dans l'eau, nous avons déjeuné au bord de la plage puis déambulé dans les ruelles d'Essaouira, visité le port (lieu de tournage de Game of Thrones), et repris la route de Marrakech en fin d'après-midi. Les filles, un conseil, la robe est à proscrire à Essaouira, il y a BEAUCOUP de vent... à part dans les petites ruelles d'Essouira où l'on est coupé du vent, sinon c'est culotte visible assurée ! Encore merci Karim, nous avons passé une superbe journée. <3 <3 :) :)
We organised 3 day trips and 1 tour in Marrakech with Karim. We had a great time, Karim was very helpful and friendly with us. We had a lot of fun. Karim is a fantastic guide an very professional. We definitely recommend him to everyone for excursions i Morocco. P.S. Thank you very much and congratulations for your music choices!! 😁
This was a great trip from start to finish. Not only is it a surf trip but an excellent tour. Karim made me feel at ease and gave me an excellent surf lesson with great detail and help. The highlight of my trip to Morocco, cannot recommend enough.
We set off early from the hotel in Marrakech and it took a little over two hours to get to Essaouira, stopping along the way to get a great photo of some goats that had climbed into a tree. We got to Essaouira but the tide was low so we had a wander around the town, the fort and the harbour, got something to eat and had a good chat about the place. After an hour or so the tide had turned and the waves were picking up. A range of different boards are available depending on your ability and many wet suits in different sizes. I got in the surf, Karim gave me some pointers and joined me in the water. After a few hours, I was well knackered, but what an experience. It is a really nice town to see and how many chances do you get to surf in Africa? The waves are really good for a beginner / intermediate surfer. Dried off, had a lovely lunch at a beach side restaurant and jumped back in the van for a comfortable ride back to Marrakech. My advie, sign up and get involved!!! Thanks again.
