I love it! I booked the Kite Surfing Lesson short therm at the beach in Agadir. What for a nice coincidence. Abdou and his Team (Hafid and Simo) are not just professional they are just PERFECT! I learned kiting after few hours well and continue during the upcoming days. The guys arranged trips to different spots which was a great experiance to see all this conditions. This guys became more then friends. Thank you soooo much!!!
We took 5 days of surfing lessons with the surf swell school. Each day, we surfed 2 hours or more. Especially in the beginning of the 5 days, our teacher Mohammed gave very good instructions for our technique and how we could further improve. Mohammed was also a very motivating and enjoyable teacher. During the last days, it was no problem for him if we wanted to surf a bit longer to practice even more the technique he teached us.
Absolutely perfect surf school with superb organization. Pick up at hotel worked 100%, extremely good lessons with helpful tips and nice teachers. Especially very warm hospitality from the owners. I also recommend the tours to little sahara with fabulous beaches and full time desert experience. The best surf school in Agadir!
As a family of 2 adults and two kids (17 & 19) we visited Morocco with the intention of doing some activities and having fun. Luckily for us, we booked with Swell Surf Morocco for a 2 hour surf lesson. The price was very good, they kept us up to date with info and any changes prior to our pick up (at our hotel)and the equipment was also very good.
