Extra activities during the surf instructor course

Paradise Valley is a beautiful oase in the mountains of Morocco. We take a daytrip in the first month of the surf instructor course in Morocco to go hiking, swimming and exploring this beautiful area. Wondering around in a place that once Jimi Hendrix named “Paradise Valley”.

Another cool activity during the surf instructor course

Sandboarding in the Small Sahara

A visit to Morocco is not complete without a visit to the Sahara. We will do this in a small trip to the small Sahara, which is about a 30-minute drive from our surf camp. Here we are going to try something totally new: sandboarding! It’s fun, it’s beautiful and we’re going to enjoy the sunset here. A great way to end the day.

Surftips during the surf instructor course

Imesouane has world class waves, and you should definitely surf these on your surf trip to Morocco! The surf spot La Bay in Imesouane is perfect to practice surfing open waves, you will also go to Imesouane at the end of the first month, so that you can really practice this. During our surf trip to Imesouane we will organize a delicious fish BBQ and discover the surfers village!

We drive along breathtaking casbahs between the mountains, over small mountain paths and winding roads to the south. We will stop regularly to take pictures. The first night we sleep in Tafraoute. The next day we heading to the stunning beaches of Sidi Ifni, Legzira and Mirleft where many undiscovered surf spots can be surfed.

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. In Taghazout and Tamraght the locals are very used of tourists, so you can wear dresses, shorts, open shoulders etc. 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 surf holiday in Morocco. 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 touristic destination and the locals will not be shocked by much. however we 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 people if you get comments. As woman you can wear swimwear on the beach and dresses on the streets, this is no problem!


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.


Most of the participants do the surf instructor course alone, but you can definitely come together! You will be in the same group and we can reservate the same room for you.

For the surf instructor course we have a minimum of 4 participants and maximum of 10 participants for the surf instructor course

Coming before the surf instructor course is starting:

Yes you can stay a few days longer in the surfcamp in Morocco if this is easier for your flight to Morocco. Keep in mind you can stay maximum 90 days without a visum in Morocco!

Coming a few days later

If you can’t schedule to arrive on the exact starting date you can start a few days later. Keep in mind you will miss this first days of the program, and especially the first days are very important!

Surfcamp room
This is by far my favorite place to stay at in Morocco. The view is to die for and sometimes they cook delicious dinner. They have surf lessons and adventure tours. I’d recommend surf paradise Morocco to anyone!
