The dominant wind direction in Morocco is north east which brings fresh until cold winds and currents. All year long a wetsuit is recommended as the atlantic is quite cold.. Just in the far south close to the Mauretainan border shorts may be enough during summer (and if you are a Wiking, in winter too..). The winds can get quite strong, i.e. during the summer.
Sidi Kaouki is a small berber village where we stay in front of the sea in a small and cosy typical berber riad. The transfer from and to the hotel is included in the trip price.

What we do is what we love!
This camp is designed to advance your skills and enjoy your passion without any time limit. Enjoy our all day kite & surf concept: You get as much lessons as you want during the week! Thus you may learn and advance your skills up to 3 times faster than with a standard kiteboarding course. Highly qualified instructors (IKO / VDWS) will always guide your steps. We teach because it's our passion to show you these wonderful sports.
Depending on your preference and skill level we will take you to the right spots. You'll step out of the plane and leave the rest to us - just relax.
We're looking forward to meeting you and are happy to share this unique experience with you. For any questions or doubts, please don´t be shy to contact us. We're happy to hear from you!
This camp can perfectly be combined with our road trip to Dakhla!
In Essaouira there are several good spots on the beach. In Essaouira bay you have side shore winds and depending on the swell size a heavy close out to overcome. The first 100m are nice and flat as waves role out there.
If you prefer a wave spot, Sidi Kaouki will probably be your place. Side-offshore until off shore winds make the spot perfect to kite the right hand side waves. Best is to do a downwinder from the village on. Be aware to have somebody experienced with you!
Moulay Bouzerktoun is the big wave spot in the area. Overall it´s a windsurf spot and often you´ll take a coffee watching the pro windsurfers in big jumps and wave riding. The triple forward was done here and for kitesurfing this spot is a challenge! Flat reef stones covering the entry, so you really should be experienced to enter. Side to side-offshore winds are blowing here stronger then anywhere else around the area. Watch out!
There are several dates available during springtime and autumn. Please choose your starting date. It is of course also possible to book two or three weeks together - please just mention during the booking. (Do you want additional schedules for this camp? Just let us know!)
The team, that's Max and Tanja: Max has both the French and the British citizenship, but grew up in Morocco - and started surfing at the age of 4. His knowledge of the country, the people and the spots in Morocco is unmatched. Tina is originally from Germany, was traveling and kiteboarding in many countries - and now settled in Spain and Morocco whilst running her own kite school in Tarifa. In addition to kiteboarding and surfing, her passion belongs to yoga as well - and she's eager to share her knowledge with you!
come as a stranger, leave as a friend!
All day kitesurfing and surfing classes: In a "normal" surf / kitesurf camp, you get a specific number of hours of instruction. We are proud to offer kitesurfing / surfing all day long. Depending on the conditions, we choose the best spot every day and teach you as long as you want. Learn up to 3 times faster kitesurfing or surfing with the all-day method!
Knowledge about the country and people: A profound knowledge of the country, the spots, the conditions and the right handling with the people just make a huge difference. So, Max' in-depth knowledge of the country and the best spots is a priceless asset.
Passion behind what we do: You´ll feel it when you arrive to the airport and we pick you up: there´s lot of passion behind our camps. We love what we do, whether to show you the culture or nature of Morocco or to teach you one of our favorite sports and lifestyles, kitesurfing and surfing. Our goal is to provide you a unique and unforgettable holiday in a very special and culturally rich country with stunning conditions for kitesurfing and surfing. Customer satisfaction comes always first for us!
Fairness: The price we choose for the weekly vacations is the most fairly choice we could make. In the rare case of less than one full day of wind within the week, you'd get a voucher for a two days class in our kite school in Tarifa, or a discount for your next trip to Morocco with us.
Don´t worry - just be happy: Get on the plane and leave the rest to us. From the arrival at one of the many airports in Morocco, all travel planning is done by us. We'll arrange transportation to / from the airport, we decide where to eat and sleep and when/where it has the best conditions for kitesurfing or surfing. You, you have vacation.. If you prefer to stroll in a typical Medina and to go shopping over standing on the board - no problem, we will make it a reality. If you are looking to buy certain things, we are also happy to assist you to pay a normal price for it and not the tourist price.. Whatever is your desire, we'll try our best to make it possible!
Upon experience, we prefer a set of accommodations in Sidi Kaouki, which is an idyllic village about 20 minutes from Essaouira. There you live next to the beach and have pure nature around you. The accommodations are clean and equipped with all amenities needed . You´ll stay in double rooms with partially commune baths (also single room booking possible). There's a kitchen and refrigerator to store beer if necessary.. If you prefer a single room or a hotel in the old town of Essaouira, we can arrange this as well (with surcharge), just let us know.
