The surf academy during a gap year in the surfcamp

A gap year is taken by many students to travel, discover new places and gain new experiences, before they fully immerse themselves in student life and start a new study.
The surf academy is a perfect option for gap year students because with the surf academy you get to experience a completely new culture, have a great experience of surfing, and at the same time meeting people from all over the world. You are on a active holiday and develop not only on a physical level but also your mind. After all, living abroad for a longer period of time does a lot for us and is really an enriching experience!

The surf academy is therefore extremely suitable for students and gap year programs. It is possible to participate in the program for (beginning) surfers as a solo traveler, or as a group: a university association, group of friends, or sports association.

With over 330 days of sunshine a year you can visit Tamraght all year long. In the wintertime (dec-feb) there are some strong swells for the advanced surfers, you have the change to surf the big famous waves of Morocco! In summertime you there are small or medium waves, this is more suitable for beginners. In the wintertime there are tempratures around 15-20 degrees and the watertemprature is around the 15 degrees. The rain is very rare in this area so you’ll have great weather trough the whole year!


Peak surf season: Dec – Feb
Off peak season: June – Sep.

All the year trough the swell is working somewhere here in the area of Tamraght. You want to see or surf the big waves you see on the movies online? Then you definitly have to visit us during wintertime. But you will always get a great surf and we’re open throughout the year.


Morocco is a Muslim country and modesty is respected. On the beach you can wear bikini’s and shorts, but you can’t be nude. For girls: On the streets wearing a range of clothing it’s best to err on the side of modesty. For men: we recommend to cover their upper body in public area. Morocco is an arid climate, much like California. The day times are warm and the evenings can get quite cool, especially in the winter. Homes and buildings are built in such a way that they keep cool in summer and (kind of) stay warm in winter. So while it may be 100F outside, if you’re inside a home or building it can be quite cool. Bring also clothes that keep you warm!


In Morocco they pay with Dirhams. 1 euro is around 10 dirhams. In most of the countries its difficult to get Moroccan Dirhams. We recommend changing money once here or using your ATM card. You will find exchange facilities and ATMs in the airport to get money out. You can also find ATMs in Agadir or Awrir. Surf Paradise Morocco don’t accept travellers cheques!


We start to explain a funny fact: Tamraght is a dry town. This means that no store will sell alcohol here… But(!!) that does not mean that you can’t get alcohol. Alcohol is available in Agadir, in restaurants, cafe’s and you can buy it in the shop. It is allowed to drink alcohol in the surfcamp and it is nice to enjoy a drink after a good day surfing. You can also buy duty free before departing in the airport.


We get a lot of questions from girls wanting advice and looking for information on how to have a safe, trouble-free trip in Morocco, and what they have to know. Morocco is one of the most tolerant Muslim countries. You’re not the first woman to visit Morocco. Agadir and the Area of Tamraght is a European tourist destination and the locals will not be shocked by much. however we would ask that all our clients respect local customs. Our advice to our women guests: Dress modest, be aware (don’t go alone on the streets at night, don’t carry large sums of cash. ) and ignore if you get comments.


Yes! If you have your own surfequipment you may bring it and you. Check your airline for the possibilities to bring your board on the flight.


We can write you down on the reservation list, so we will inform you as soon as there will be a spot available again!
