- What are the weather, water and surf like?
Morocco is a popular surf destination all year round. In the summer months (May to October) there are smaller waves and the water is warm enough to surf without a wetsuit. The beach breaks are usually the best option, offering a great time for those who are looking for fun, small waves. For those who want more of a challenge, there are still a few days with bigger swell.
In the winter months (December to February), the famous waves on Morocco’s coast come alive. The water is a little cooler, 3/2 full suit, but there is a huge selection of surf options, like nowhere else in the world. Morocco offers fun for everyone, whether beginner, intermediate or professional surfer, we’ll take you to the perfect spot to surf.
Morocco has more than 300 sunny days a year. Between November and February there is a slight chance of rain.
- What should I bring?
Passport, airline tickets, visa if necessary, address of your accommodation (West Surf Morocco, Villa Solaria, Tamraght), travel insurance, sunscreen, beach towel, sarong, swimsuit, beachshorts, flip flops, sunglasses, a hat, a sweater for chilly evenings, evening outfit for a dinner outside of the Camp, beachbag, yoga outfit if needed and most importantly a lot of energy and fun.

- Currency and Payment
Currency: Morocco has a closed currency, so you cannot bring Dirhams in or out of the country. Most don´t accept traveler checks or card payments. So the best thing is to change money in Morocco or get cash at an ATM.
Payment: You can pay any outstanding balance in Euros, Pounds or MAD in the surf camp when you arrive.

Share your wishes with us and we will organize one of these amazing day trips.
- What to do in the evenings?
You can enjoy the evenings with a delicious dinner on the terrace while watching the sunset, or take a taxi and explore the local area on your own. Once a week we arrange a dinner together in Agadir or Taghazout which is always a great time.
- Local Culture and Religion
Our surf camp is located in a traditional Berber village. Boardshorts and bikinis are fine on the beach but it is respectful to cover up a little more while in the village. If you make a trip to the local bazaar or the hinterland it is necessary to cover your shoulders and knees. In general Morocco is a very safe and peaceful country. Your belongings are safe on the beach and we always have an eye on them. But, please do not bring any valuables, such as passports, credit card or other things to the beach.
- Is alcohol a problem?
Alcohol is not a problem, the problem is trying to find it because it's not widely available. You won't find any alcohol in Tamraght or Taghazout, however you can buy it in Agadir at various shops. So it is best to ask your airport driver to stop at an alcohol shop on the way to the camp. There are also refrigerators at the camp for you to store your alcohol in.
