"amazing hospitality and fun experience "

Redouan is a very kind and helpful host. You feel his personal approach from the first moment you arrive at school to the last moment. He was always available. He has a really young team of instructors and everyone was very friendly and ready to help you any time. I participated the course as an absolute beginner and i had booked 10 hours initially. I ended up adding on 5 more hours. The experience may change depending on the instructor that is assigned to you and your learning pace.

Redouan also arranged a very beautiful accommodation in the heart of Medina. The Riad was close to everywhere I could go and the staff there was exceptionally helpful and kind.

It was a great experience and i would recommend Redouan's school to anyone visiting Essaouira. Thanks for everything!

"Super Erfahrung "

Total liebe freundliche und zuvorkommende Gastgeber im Hotel. Süße Zimmer und super Frühstück auf der Dachterasse. Das Surfcamp können wir ebenfalls weiterempfehlen. Jeder war sehr bemüht, freundlich und hat einem das Kiten wirklich schmackhaft gemacht. Gerne wieder.

"Incredible holiday great value for money"

Redouan is super helpful, friendly and so welcoming. The accommodation we had was great, close to stuff in the medina and short walk to the beach. Breakfast was a big spread every morning included in the price and the staff were so accommodating in making breakfast any time in the morning. They also washed our towels regularly and made the beds daily!

The kite surfing was awesome, great instructors we had Ali who was such a nice guy so patient with us. Other guys were also looking out for us on the beach too and giving tips/helping launch ect. Times it wasn’t windy enough we could take out surf boards and wetsuits for free at the shop.

Highly recommend this holiday, it’s so worth the money, you’ll want to buy more hours on the kite surf!

"Incredible, best surfing I've ever done as a beginner"

Redouan was incredibly helpful. He was really accommodating to our situation and he was super friendly. Our instructors Yousef and Abdullah were amazing as well. By the end of our second day, I was able to catch some proper waves as a beginner.

Cristiano Zanni

from Germany, May 2024

Simo El Hoummadi was my instructor, he was always very patience and making sure that the security measures were clear and understood by me.

He was very effective on identifying my mistakes during the practise, even when I was out in the water. Constantly giving valuable feed backs and insights after every exercise.

Redouan El Garda was always prompt and very kind to help and solve any problems regarding anything about the package or just by giving general advice and orientations about the city and surroundings.

The other team members were very friendly and keen to help, great atmosphere.


from Great Britain, May 2024

"What a trip!"

"Amazing experience"

Great school. Redouan was very accommodating and helpful. With the courses and outside.

Our instructor Simo is easily the best in the business. Extremely professional and skilled. We learned so much in the few days we were there.

Definitely will come back.

Benjamin Causer

"Amazing Experience"

The instructors are just great. Very patient.

We even socialized with the instructors.

Allah & Abdullah were really good instructors. I was slow to learn but by the end could ride back and forth.

My wife enjoyed the experience and surfed also

"Fantastic kite surfing experience in Essaouira "

We had a great experience in Essaouira having our kite surfing camp. Accommodation was nice. We were greeted by Redouan. There was plenty of wind and sun. Our instructor Khalil was nice and easy going. I was unlucky to rupture a kite though pleasantly to me that was included in the package. The accommodation was in the medina and a walking distance to the school and beach. All in all a very very good deal for the price. Would recommend and come back ourselves.

"Hatte eine super Zeit 😁"

Redouan hat ein junges dynamisches Team und versucht auch an Windstillen Tagen, dass man das beste aus seinem Urlaub machen kann. Ich hatte letztlich 3 Tage Wind und durfte so lange auf dem Wasser bleiben bis ich mich total ausgepowert hatte, niemand hat mich in meinem Ehrgeiz die windigen Tage auszunutzen gebremst. An windstillen Tagen konnte man Surfen gehen oder einfach die Stadt erkunden. Unterm Strich ein toller Trip, kann es jedem Empfehlen.

"Surf camp"

Redouan and his crew were very professional, and made sure we were comfortable with each step before moving to the next (first time kite-surfing).

"Kitesurf camp "

I’ve had a very good time in Essaouira because of the accomodation and the great experience with the kite school. The accomodation (Riad Inna) was clean, very light, easy to connect with other people and had a lovely breakfast at the rooftop. The kiteschool was amazing as well. The teachers are super helpfull and funny and willing to help you with everything. I’ve had a great time with kiting and felt very safe because of them!


from Germany, April 2024

"Great kiting experience - highly recommended"

Very welcoming kitesurfing staff and amazing stay. I was moved to another hotel, but I must say both hotels they offer are amazing, I actually preferred my hotel where I got moved to.

When there was no wind, the school offered to use their surfboard and equipment to go surfing instead (free of charge).

For sure, I will come back :)

Veronika Lundberg

"Great instructors and good location!"

Great instructors and good pace with learning and trying new things, above expectations with what I could pick up in only 2 days! Would definitely recommend!


from Netherlands, April 2024

"Good for Beginners"

* The energy of the teacher was amazing, he was just so happy and having fun the whole time.

* They were very good at communicating and were very relaxed about the whole process - nothing was set in stone throughout the trip.


from Germany, April 2024

"Best Kitesurfing in Essaouira"

Redouan ist super nett und hilfsbereit! Sein Team ist spitze und kann ich nur weiterempfehlen! Ich habe einen Kitekurs zusammen mit meiner Freundin gemacht. Auch die Unterkunft im Riad Inna direkt in der Medina von Essaouira ist klasse. Gerne hätten wir noch mehr Zeit verbracht!

Didier De Werd

"An amazing week of kiting and exploring Essouira "

Me and Girlfriend had a fantastic week in Essouira and are very thankful for the amazing and nice service from the kite school. The owner of the kite school is super kind and keeps great contact with you about the weather conditions, he is always trying to optimize your time.

My girlfriend already knew how to kite surf, but for a beginner like me they had great lessons with very good instructors who gave me good personalized help. When i Started I had never touched a kite before but after 3 days of lessons I already made my first few meter on the water.

The Riad was also very nice with a daily room cleaning and a nice big breakfast. We stayed in 2 different rooms and both were very nice a spacious, the only remarks we had was that the shower-head is a bit small.

But overall it was a amazing experience in Essouira and we are more than happy with our kite surf classes and stay

"Perfecte kite trip in een verassende omgeving"

Het mooie stadje Essaouira, het enthousiasme van Ridouan en zijn team en de hele relaxte sfeer die alles uitstraalde. Met hele diverse omstandigheden leren Kiten, weinig wind, off shore , van een 12m tot een 6m kite, rustige en stevige branding. Heel goed les gehad van Khalid, en heel veel lol gehad vooral ! Terug naar huis en de basis om zelfstandig te kunnen kiten goed onder controle nu terug in Nederland tijd om al het geleerde mooi uit te bouwen!

Carmen Santana

from Netherlands, March 2024

"Over any possible expectation! "

Everything in this experience is worth to be mentioned.

The hotel facilities are stunning, the location is perfect and everyone working there is nice and supportive.

The check in, the communication, the support to arrive 10/10.

Surf school is located super close to the sea, the energy of the teacher and all the crew makes the experience fun, safe and very special.

After 20 mins in the water I was standing on a wave!

I can only recommend this if you want a great experience in Essaouira.

Cam Tomkins

from Czechia, March 2024

"Highly recommended"

Redouan and his team were fantastic! Accommodating us when the wind wasn't blowing with surf lessons instead, easy to communicate with and always helpful. The accommodation provided in the medina was quiet and comfortable. Excellent choice for anyone looking to learn to kitesurf and explore the beautiful town of Essaouira

Wenzel Mehnert

from Morocco, March 2024

"A really magical trip in a magical town"

Essaouira is a beautiful city to spend some time. The beach is right around the corner and perfect for beginners or intermediate surfers. Redouan and his team are super nice and help out when needed. They are also flexible, means surfing and kite surfing both works at their surf school

Also, the restaurants around the city are amazing!!

Would definitely come back!

"Kitesurfing and surfing lessons "

Great experience! Skilled instructors! Easy communication, fair pricing and great hotel in middle of Medina. Due weather conditions I was not able to use full kitesurfing package but luckily there were good waves for surfing as alternative. Highly recommended I will come back.

Eugene T

from Denmark, February 2024

"Amazing surf & yoga experience "

This was an awesome experience for us thanks to Redouan who organised everything for us, Abdullah who was easily the best surf instructor of all at Essaouira beach and the yoga instructor who guided us through a much-needed stretchy and relaxing yoga session every day after surfing.

The hotel was right in the heart of the Medina; everything was super clean and the staff was very helpful and open to conversation. Essaouira is a vibrant town and at the same time a great place to unwind and lay back a bit! Everyone we met was just so welcoming and kind. We fell in love with the place!

Thank you so much for sharing your time and energy with us. We had a f a n t a s t i c time with you :D

Kirsty Wheeler

from Great Britain, February 2024

"Had a great time "

We had a great time during our stay. Although there was no wind, we were given the option do do surf lessons or get refunded for the kite lessons. I chose to do surf lessons and had a great time. The instructors are very good and professional. Any questions/ issues where quickly resolved and the hotel staff where very friendly.

Magnus Heitmann

from Norway, January 2024

"Best surf camp in Essaoira "

The surfing: Our instructor was Abdulah and he was great! He quickly noticed my level, he pushed me, but not to much and made me progress very much on only 3 days of surfing. Everything with the surfing was perfect!

The accommodation is in the middle of the city, Medina. It is nice rooms, the breakfast is nice. The receptionists are very very nice people.

We had a really really good time and can’t wait to go back.

François Berger

"Great experience for all levels of kitesurfing!"

Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it to everyone! The staff is super nice and accommodating - unfortunately no one can control the wind but Redouan and his team made sure that we were always proposed great alternatives like surfing. The gear is new and instructors are well prepared (shoutout to Simo our kite instructor he was the best!) in fact in just 3 days I was able to do water start and cruise around.


from Italy, November 2023

"Great time in the water!"

We had an amazing experience learning to surf! Abdullah was a great instructor — helpful tips and lots of encouragement. It was also fun to learn with other beginners. There was instant camaraderie between students and instructor. Very friendly and welcoming!

Mélina D

from United States, November 2023

"Go for it! "

We did 12hrs of kite surf with Atlanticzin school. Redouan and his team are amazing! We enjoyed the kite surf class with Ali so much. Redouan makes sure we have an incredible experience with the best conditions. We would go back without a doubt.

Plus, the surf boards are available at anytime if you feel like you have some energy left after kitesurf, or if the wind is off. That's great.

We did not go into the accomotion of the school we booked another one ourselves, that was lacated in the same area, therefore we can't comment on food, accolodation and facilities. But the school and the team is great. Everyone cares that you have a good time, it really makes it all :)

Miska Ilvesluoto

Redouan a très bien organisé les choses importantes. Il se montre présent, est réactif, transparent et à l'écoute. Son équipe est très sympathique aussi !

Philip Barton

from Great Britain, October 2023

"The wind doesn't always blow"

You cannot control the weather but Redouan can control everything else!!

I was unlucky to get only 3 days kite surfing in the 10 days but by doing a couple of days surfing to meet the other students and then hanging around Essaouira, it was a fun time!

Eda Arslan

from Germany, October 2023

"Great stay, we will repeat for sure!"

We initially booked a 6 day kitesurf class but had to cancel it when we arrived due to work. Redouan was very helpful and super flexible as he gave us a full refund. We will definitely be back soon when the season starts in March.

The Riad is in the medina where you can find lots of nice restaurants around. It’s very clean and has a very authentic vibe. Super friendly people as well.

"Super équipe et super expérience ! "

Superbe expérience KiteSurf à Essaouira! Tout l’équipe est adorable, serviable et arrangeante. Nous avons eu peu de vent pendant notre semaine mais l’équipe a su s’arranger pour que nous fassions quand même les heures prévues (sinon ils nous rembourse directement). On a pu facilement apprendre et évoluer dans des très bonnes conditions. Mention spéciale à Khalil notre prof, the best!

"Top Kitesurf/ Surf holiday's "

Great people, great Riad - everything was perfect, beside the weather conditions 😅

Unfortunately, we only had one day of strong winds, related to the off-season for kitesurfing. Therefore, Redouan informed us about it before arriving and offered to get the most of that one day as possible. So we did 5 and a half Hours of learning Kiting straight (till sunset ) just as it was our wish - thanks a lot for that 💪🏻.

The other days, we got offered to also learn Surfing, which we agreed - another great experience.

It's a no-brainer Deal! :)

"Amazing experience with brilliant instructors "

As a lone female traveller i felt really welcomed by the team.

My yoga session with Muhammed was excellent. I really enjoyed the beach atmosphere and Muhammed seemed like a lovely person.

My surf lessons were mostly with Abdul. I had surfed before but i felt like my technique greatly improved and we took everything step by step. I really enjoyed my one surf lesson with Ali too.

I loved the style of the accommodation. I felt like it was great value.

I had the best time. Everyone has been great. Thanks so much!🏄‍♀

Adria Ciurana

from Spain, September 2023

"The best kitesurf camp! "

For Redouan, you are not a student, you are a family member. We had a problem with the car and he helped us in every way he could (change the tire, find a mechanic). He is undoubtedly one of the best people you can meet and his school is an amazing and safe place to learn Kitesurfing.

Alexander Van De Cotte

"Kitetrip september 2023"

All the instructors and people were extremely friendly and skilled. The hotel was perfect aswell. You could ask Redouan anything, because of that u felt very safe and at ease. The pay for your buck is amazing. I can not stress enough how good this experience was.

Thank u to all the instructors and people at the hotel!

Miren Ayastuy

Vielen vielen Dank für die tollen Surfstunden! Die Wellen haben sich für Anfänger und für Fortgeschrittene geeignet. Wir wurden super angeleitet und waren sehr willkommen! Besonderen Dank an Abdellah unseren Surflehrer, er hat uns super angeleitet und sehr genau beobachtet, was wir besser machen können, außerdem war er außerordentlich freundlich und für gute Gespräche zu haben! Die Yogastunden haben uns auch sehr gut gefallen, es ist ein neues Erfahrung, dass am Strand zu machen und sehr zu empfehlen.

Die Leute in der Unterkunft waren auch sehr gechillt und unser Zimmer hat uns auch gut gefallen. Außerdem geben die Leute an der Rezeption wirklich gute Tipps, wo man so essen gehen kann und was man in Essaouira alles machen kann.

Das Frühstück war auch sehr gut, wir sind wirklich zufrieden!!

Zu dem Erdbeben: in Essaouira merkt man nichts davon und wir haben keine zerstörten Häuser oder sowas gesehen. Also wir können es jedem empfehlen hierhin zu kommen und dieses tollen Angebot zu nutzen 😊

Wir danke nochmal dem Team für die tollen Zeit und wünschen allen alles Gute und dass weiterhin viele Gäste kommen!

Guy Reading

"Great holiday with great people"

Redouan and his team, notably Ismail, are really friendly, accomodating and helpful, both with kitesurfing and with anything else during your holiday. The kitesurf training is great and I learnt a lot during the week. R.e. accomodation: the team sets you up with accomodating in a riad in the Medina, if that's unclear. So overall it's very good value for money for surfing + accomodation! I would definitely come here again & recommend to friends.

John Prader

from Morocco, August 2023

"Need to come back!!"

Andi Hummel

from Germany, April 2023

"Great Kite Surf School"

My instructor Bilal is so much more than just a teacher. He absolutely knows what he is talking about and has a good straight-forward easy way to explain. It made so much fun with his kind proactive hands-on attitude.

Even beyond the kiting I got the feeling to be at home, amazing conversations about the country, people, culture, life.

I would have loved to extend the course with some more windy days. Absolute recommendation and try to get Bilal as your instructor.

Karin Koch

from Switzerland, April 2023

"Perfect kitesurf camp!"

I have just completed 5 days kitesurfing with Atlanticzin Watersports and it was amazing. Redouan is incredibly nice, helpful, funny, organised,... He reacts to requests quickly and finds a solution for every problem.

The hotel was tidy and in the center of the medina. The hotel staff was also very welcoming and helpful with everything.

The kitesurf instructors were all very friendly and skilled. I felt safe during the lessons, even with the waves. I really improved my kitesurfing skills and am looking forward to booking the next surfcamp.

Thanks again so much for this amazing week! Hope to see you again!

Benoit Gallois

Sergi Jacas Puig

"Learn from the best and enjoy Essaouira"

I had an amazing experience with Atlanticzin Watersports in Essaouira! What I liked the most was the excellent treatment I received from the entire team. Redouan was extremely accommodating and always available, while our instructor Lathifa was very knowledgeable and able to teach us a lot in a short amount of time. The rest of the team was also super friendly and welcoming. Essaouira is a magnificent place to unwind and relax, and the Riad they provided for us made our stay even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a great time and top-notch service. 100% recommended!

Ricardo Garcia

from Spain, April 2023

"Highly recommended "

We wouldn’t like to name just the instructor (Abdu) that was amazing with us and helped to overcome fears in the water but also the whole crew that made this experience INCREDIBLE.

It’s like feeling you got friends in Essaouira and that you could live there!

My kitesurfing level stepped up quickly so I can say that everything was worth the investment.


from Spain, March 2023

The personal is really fantastic, good people doing what they like, and enjoying with you.

For sure I recommended that place if you want to do some sport in the water.

We practice surf at this camp for first time and it was really nice experience.

Jerry Thwaites

from Slovenia, March 2023

"Great trip great experience "

All good. Super accommodation (part of the package) right in the heart of the Medina / Old Town. Excellent.

The KS lessons were fantastic too. Super instruction, very friendly. Could not fault anything.

This place (I now know) is super windy but great for KS. Wholeheartedly recommend it.

Adam Kubis

Good vibes, friendly instructors and all the staff in Riad Inna, perfect camp if you want to experience Marrocan culture head on, make new friends and find beauty in the rugged streets that shocks & delights you at the same time.


from Great Britain, March 2023

From start to finish everything was so well organised, Redouan was very professional, and my instructor Ali made me feel very safe in the water as I was nervous. He was so encouraging and told me to believe in myself, and that helped so much with the surfing. Would highly recommend this safe and professional company for beginner surf lessons.

Kate Newcombe

from Great Britain, March 2023

"Wonderful surf school and experience! "

The whole experience was seamless.

Redouan arranged transport to and from the airport - which was great.

As a single female traveller I felt safe and respected at the Riad Inna and at the surf school. Nothing was too much trouble. Ali my instructor was kind, encouraging and super friendly. I stood on the board in my first lesson and I would happily recommend this surf school to anyone. I 100% want to return. The beach is beautiful, the Medina is great and the Riad well placed for access to restaurants as well as the beach and surf school. The whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. Everyone I met was genuine, lovely, encouraging and so passionate about their town and the surfing!

Adélie Ferrari

from France, February 2023

"Absolutely perfect "

Had the best time in Essaouira thanks to Redouan and his team.

Surf / kite surf courses was great, I felt safe all time long and had a lot of fun. Instructors are nice, patient, calm and as happy as you when you are making progresses.

The accommodation was great, the place is pretty, comfortable and clean. Staff was really helpful and very nice.

Essaouira is the sweetest city, people are really nice.

I recommend +++

Thank you so much Redouan


from Austria, February 2023

Everything was great, I did both surfing (when there was no wind) and kitesurfing. Instructors were really nice and patient and everything was functioning with the organization (from the airport taxi transfer to the hotel).

Guys at the Riad Inna were also really great and helpful with many things. For instance, I had a small leg injury and needed something from the pharmacy and they went at midnight to get it for me as the nearest open pharmacy was 10 min by bike ( thanks for this!!). Aside from surfing experience, Essaouria is a really beautiful small town with many cool places and extra activities which you can do in case there is no wind.

Ida Kviteberg

from Norway, February 2023

"Wonderful and relaxing surf camp"

I had a great time at this surf camp. Wonderful beach with great waves, lots of space and super help from the instructor (Ali). Everyone at the Club was so friendly, helpful and genuine. Would love to come back again and surf some more.

Russell Peters

from Great Britain, February 2023

"Brilliant experience!"

Redouan and the team went out of the way to make the trip a great experience. A few hiccups but they were sorted as soon as possible! Notably the lack of wind, but we got a partial refund and had a great time surfing instead! The location is brilliant and everything was made so easy with transfers too!

Joe Summers

from Great Britain, February 2023

"Excellent company, awesome guys "

The camp is well organised. The equipment is top notch and the instruction is excellent.

All the stuff could not of been more helpful. They are very kind, good people.

From start to finish, airport pick up/drop off and organised lessons was easy and very well run.

I will aim to get back when I can. As the school exceeded my expectations.

Ross Anthony Beeby

from Great Britain, January 2023

"Exceeded expectation"

The trip was excellent value and Redouan certainly made it feel very tailored. He was always at hand to help on all matters of the trip and was pleasant and caring. This meant that all aspects of the trip were dealt with and so everything ran smoothly.

The same goes for the staff at Riad Inna Hotel. They were very welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure your stay there was enjoyable. Excellent job by all.

"surf camp Essaouira"

We hadden deze reis geboekt met het oog om te gaan kiten; helaas was er geen wind en kregen we direct het voorstel van Redouan om te leren surfen. een supe ervaring rijker en zeker voor herhaling vatbaar!

"Kite Surfing and Surfing"

The team is great! The kite surf and surf teachers took their time to teach us in small groups how set up the the eqipment, controll the kite and how to stay safe. I was a complete beginner, they showed us everything in an easy way and explained us what errors we made and what to do better, so we had a continuous learning curve and a steady improvement. After three days of kite control training on the beach and in the water we were ready to go on the board.

Unfortunately nature didn't play along and we had no wind for the next few days so I had to change my plans, but I am excited to continue from here with kite surfing in a few months.

Due to the situation I took the chance to switch over to normal surfing - where I was a complete beginner as well - and enjoyed the next five days on, in and under the water. The team was great and tought me the Basics so I could quickly keep practicing myself and managed to take a few very nice waves.

The accommodation that was included was great. The hotel is modern and clean with good wifi and a nutritious breakfast (bread, honey marmelade, omlettes, little pancakes, tea, coffe and freshly pressed orange juice), the rooms were clean and comfortable with private bathrooms and big beds.

The city is a nice small town with plenty restaurants cafes and a big market area as well as a harbour where you can buy and eat fresh fish.

To sum it up, I had a very good time in Essaouira and would recommed the surfcam to everyone.

Great team that is committed to make sure your stay is as good as possible. They care a lot about their customers which really shows.

"Amazing experience"

Essaouira is an excellent spot for surf beginners. Besides the surf experience the city is nice, you’ll enjoy to walk around the streets among souks and typical restaurants.

The accomodation, a classic moroccan riad, is really clean and comfortable.

Redouan, our surf instructor, and all the staff of Atlanticzin is very kind.

We were unlucky with the weather (the last day was raining) and Redouan refund us the surf lesson we cannot attend. The same for the yoga session and the arriving dinner (during the week we spent in Essaouira me and my friend were the only 2 guys attending the course, for this reason the dinner was not organized).

Amazing experience, really recommended!

"Tolles Surfcamp mit lustigen Leuten"

Bei Ankunft im Hotel, welches mitten in Essaouira lag, wurde mir direkt mit der Kommunikation mit dem Kitecamp geholfen.

Das Zimmer war schlicht, aber hatte alles was man braucht. Das Bett war leider gebrochen, weshalb meine erste Nacht nicht so gut war, aber nachdem ich dies anmerkte wurde das Bett direkt repariert. Alles bestens! :-) Die Angestellten des Hotels sind sehr zuvorkommend mit allem und bemühen sich um einen angenehmen Aufenthalt!

Die Kommunikation mit Redouan lief einwandfrei. Das Surfcamp liegt etwa in zweiter Reihe und zum Surfspot muss man etwa 5-10 Minuten zu Fuß gehen. Neoprenanzug, Helm und das gesamte Kitematerial wird zur verfügung gestellt. Auch eine warme Dusche steht nach dem Kiten zur Verfügung. Die Jungs sind wirklich zuvorkommend vorkommend und nehmen einen viel ab und bemühen sich, dass man sich sehr wohl fühlt :-)

The fun and good times to learn kiting together in the waves of the Atlantic ocean. They good instructors, mine was clear and direct, helping you to be independent and to learn And they were be patient with me when i crashed again haha.

Safety first was important in all the lessons.

The team is really connected to eachother and open to me/the learners That gives a home feeling

"Wonderful location, great Watersports club"

Essaouira is a wonderful location, a great combination of a beautiful seaside town with a pumping beach right next to it.

Redouan and his team were extremely accomodating and flexible, and very friendly. 10/10

Renata Rocnakova

from Switzerland, October 2022

"I will be back! "


The location - Essaouira is such a cute and chilled place, compared to other Moroccan cities.

The staff - Redouan and his staff are super friendly and professional people. We had no wind the first day but they immediately went on and offered us surfing for that day. And they apologised a lot for no wind conditions, which as everyone knows - no one can influence the nature.

I really liked the vibe and easiness. I will definitely be back in a few months!

Thank you Redouan and everyone!

"Absolutely recommended "

Absolutely recommended this place!!!

I just been there and had a 8day course I'm already knew how to kitesurf and went there to improve my allround skills and in upwind kiting.

The owner is super friendly and also the teachers are really supportive and give you a very safe and secured feeling in the water.

The place to stay "riad Inna" also better than expected with very friendly guys working there sharing their knowledge about the town with you and gave me good recommendations for places to visit and the best places to eat around.

All together I can just say it's definitely worth to book with atlanticzin watersports and even if there's no wind or for some reason you cannot be on the water he won't charge you for the lessons.

Don't think about it go for it !!!

"Amazing kitesurf experience on a student-friendly budget"

The experience and fun Redouan and his team offers you can’t be matched.

We had a very warm welcome by Redouan the first day. He showed us a bit of the town and took us to the Atlanticwzin shop (10min walk from the medina). There we met our instructor Mounim.

We had some kitesurfing experience in the Netherlands, but it became clear very fast that Essaouira is something completely else. Mounim took the necessary time to rehearse everything.

5 days of surfing later, we were both going back and fourth with an occasional transfer.

Before and after every session, pupils and teachers meat at the Atlanticzin club. Here hangs an amazing atmosphere. Everyone gets to know each other. We met an Italian, a British and a Swedish couple. After two days we already went for a drink together. That’s how pleasant the atmosphere is at the club!

We’ll be back next year for sure! 🤟🏼

Natalie Moskwa

from Great Britain, September 2022


Just finished 3 days 1-to-1 kite surfing tuition with the team here and loved it! Massive thanks also to Redouan for organising literally everything for me; transfers, accommodation, lessons and anything else I asked for. I felt warmly welcomed and looked after by yourself and the team which is very much appreciated as a solo traveller. I also enjoyed the tasty meal provided with the staff and other guests. Exceptional customer service and excellent value for money! 5 stars all the way :-)

"Amazing place with amazing instructors "

From the moment I arrived everyone was very welcoming and made me feel at home. The accomodation is really nice and clean and in the heart of the Medina. The instructors are very nice and tailor the lessons to your ability well.

Zahi Landa

from Portugal, September 2022

I am beginner and had the good fortune to have Simo as a trainer. all lessons conducted at the highest professional level. I made great progress from lesson to lesson. Despite the concerns I had before I arrived due to my not young age of 66. Everything went successfully and with great pleasure. I have no doubt that Reduan's management and Simo training are winning team. The club is highly recommended, I hope to come again to improve my ability.

Arnau Gabarro

"100% recommendable"

Atlanticzin team was incredibly welcoming and kind from the first minute. They really cared for our safety and our progress in kitesurfing. Accomodation was very comfortable and centric as well. I would book with them again without any doubt!

The team at Atlanticzin were amazing.

We were warmly welcomed by Redouan and introduced to our instructor, Ahmed who is a fantastic teacher.

We really enjoyed the lessons as Ahmed was a great teacher (and person) and also incredibly patient with us.

Jairo Hernan Ramirez Sierra

All very well. Redoudan is an excellent person, all very professional, I enjoyed the Kite course a lot. The Riad was also very good, very comfortable and clean. I strongly recommend a stay in Essaouira at the Kite school of Redouan.

"Amazing experience Essaouira!"

The instructors are really cool and adapt their teaching style to what suits you as a person. Redouan is so much fun and flexible, it was no problem to change our lessons to a mix of lessons for both kiting and golfsurfing! The riad is beautiful and located in the heart of the medina, which results in an optimal experience between the beachy playground and the vibrant, colorful city centre. We enjoyed the sunny morning breakfasts at the rooftop terrass and interacting with the friendly staff of the riad. Unlike Marrakech, Essaouira is such a welcoming and relaxed city with all the fun and warm locals we met, from salesman to other (local) tourists! Thank you for this amazing week! :-)

"Great experience "

Had a great time with Atlantizin Watersports. Can´t thank Redouan enough for the hospitality, accommodation and service. Also have to give my instructor Mone a great word, he´s the best instructor that I´ve had so far and can gladly say that I made some great progress thanks to him, being able to ride back and forth by the end of my 5 days of kite-surfing. Would gladly recommend the experience with Atlantizin Watersports to anyone looking into a kite-surfing experience in Essouira.

"Perfect package for people wanting to get into kitesurfing "

Very friendly, helpful and experienced staff. Invited for authentic Moroccan dinner together with staff and other guests to get to know each other. Big focus on safety first while attending kitesurf lessons, ensuring you are comfortable in steps before advancing. Good experience and would totally recommend. If possible, would have stayed for more than 4 days.

Redouan is super engaged with your well-being and makes sure you are having a good time. The surf school and Riad feels very welcome and makes you feel at home quite fast. We had a great time thanks to Redouan, and his colleagues. The instructors in this surfschool speak english well and are kind and experienced. We had a tradition maroccan meal together and enjoyed that supermuch.

"Great time in Essaouira"

I spent a week in Essaouira with Atlanticzin. The overall atmosphere of the camp was very relaxed. Everything was organized well and hassle-free. The instructors are kind and enthousiastic people, who genuinely want to see you improve your skills. The Riad was a nice place to stay. The hosts were very welcoming and provided great tips for the best restaurants in town.

We did not have wind every day (which is rare in Essaouira), but surf lessons were offered during those days, and those were also good fun.

I could kite every day and improved my skills, but overall I enjoyed staying togather all the guys, and Youssef was a baby-siter for me explaining the wind waves, spot conditions and going around beautifull Essaouira...only wish I had more days, but I hope I'll get soon back for some other tajine-nights with them

"Great experience first time surfing"

It was the first time surfing for my friend and me and definetely won’t be the last one. We enjoyed a lot our time in Essaouira. We loved the hostel, so clean and tidy. We also liked so much Rachid’s restaurant were we had two excellent dinners.

And we definetely enjoyed so much the surfing! Our teacher was Mohamed who helped us understand how to get the waves and stand on the board. Waves were great and we liked the fact that the rental of material was for the whole day and not only for the two hours classes.

People at the school and the riad were nice to us and showed us nice places.

Yoga classes with Abdel were the best activity for afternoons after surf they made us feel so relaxed and get ready for the next day activity.

"Our experience in the surfschool"

It was the best experience we could have wished for. Everyone was very friendly and open to help us. The Surf lessons were very helpful and even in 3 days we saw great improvements. In the afternoon we had yoga lessons on the beach which were also super relaxing and beautiful. We felt very very welcomed and look forward to coming back as soon as we can!

The riad was also very nice and clean with a beautiful breakfast at the roof Terrasse.

When we had questions we could always call or message youssef and he was the best!

All in all the best part of our trip to Marokko!!!

"Excellent week in Essaouira"

We had a great week in Essaouira with Atlanticzin Watersports. Redouan was great at answering all our questions before the trip and then brilliant at organizing everything for us for when we were there. Youssef was our instructor and he was great at breaking down all the components of kitesurfing, especially controlling the kite. We didn't have wind on every day of our trip but Redouan was super flexible and accommodating, and we had a surf lesson one day instead which was great fun! Riad Inna was also a great hotel with lovely staff and it was a great place to come back to. Unfortunately we were not able to get up properly on the board in the water, and would need maybe another couple of hours to get this step and start kitesurfing properly. Our trip was in September and there were still travel restrictions to many countries which meant there were very few people kitesurfing or surfing. This meant that the beach was much quieter and probably helped learning but also meant there was no meal with everyone on the last day - hopefully this won't be a problem after COVID! We were also able to borrow surfboards on the last morning before leaving. Overall it was a great week and Essaouira and the beach are beautiful.

Jacco Oskam

"Atlanticzin is amazing & Essaouira is the perfect kitespot "

I had a fantastic experience taking kite surf lessons at Atlanticzin watersports. I took a course for nine days and when I started I was really a beginner. I got lessons from Youssef and he is a great instructor. He is very patient and encouraging and learns you all the small steps that you’ll need to surf confidently on your own. After every surf session I felt like I learned so much and I enjoyed it a lot. In my opinion Essaouira is the perfect place to learn kitesurfing, because every time you go to the beach there are different conditions you’ll need to adapt to. Redouan and his team are really amazing. They did everything to make me feel welcome in Essaouira and are really professional and well organised.

I traveled in July 2021 and traveling in Marocco with respect to Covid was actually very convenient. Taking a PCR test in Essaouira on my way back to the Netherlands was also very easy.

Redouan, Youssef and Rachid, thank you so much for the amazing experience and I am looking forward to see you guys again!

"Great fun for me and my son "

The team were really friendly and experienced . You might fall off the board a few times but me(47) and my 16 year old son could both stand on the board (a few times ) by the end . Rashid(unsure of spelling) is very patient and funny . A man who really loves his job


from Austria, February 2020

"Perfect surfexperience"

We really liked it a lot and definitely thinking about coming back. Youssef was an amazing teacher and the waves are perfect as well for beginner and advanced surfers. Definitely worth trying out surfing in Essaouria, it is great fun! Thanks for everything.

Kind regards

from Denmark, January 2020

The accomodation is at "The House by Riad Inna"; not at Riad Inna itself. It's still good though. Great, chill rooftop with amazing views (could use some new chairs though). But not as "Moroccan" and well-decorated as the Riad itself. However, the woman taking care of the place does an amazing job dishing up breakfast, and keeping the place spotless. She was a big plus.

Redouan was a plus too. He is very accommodating, and feels genuinely interested in giving you a good experience.

Martina Giacobbe

"Amazing experience"

Even if I stayed in Essaouira just for few days, it has been a fantastic experience! The city is really beautiful but tranquil, the waves were perfect for beginners, the instructors qualified and everyone was really nice and made feel welcomed. Surfing for the first time was really fun and exciting!! The yoga classes made this experience even better. I really recommend to do a surf camp with Atlaticzin

Arran Thompson

"Absolutely amazing experience!!"

Honesty can’t begin to describe how amazing the week in Essaouira with the lads at the surf school, amazing instructor named youssef who taught both surfing and kite surfing was absolutely top job, very helpful and descriptive of on what to do and how to do and listen to any questions I had, honestly couldn’t praise the guys enough and will definitely be back!

Lots of love for this school and the guys working there!

"Awesome beginner/intermediate surf experience"

Redouan and all his crew at the surf camp are what made my surf trip to Morocco really special.

An awesome group of people, extremely friendly, professional and available to help organise also the transfer from and to Marrakech. I recommend it to beginners and intermediate surfers, travelling in group or alone (as I did).


from Morocco, November 2019

Ich stand vorher noch nie auf einem Surfboard und war dementsprechend skeptisch ob surfen eine gute Idee ist. Die Befürchtung waren jedoch unbegründet. Man wird eingeführt und dann heißt es eben üben, üben üben. Macht unglaublich viel Spaß. Die Mitarbeiter sind extrem hilfsbereit und freundlich, so dass man sich jederzeit wunderbar aufgehoben füllt. Viele Dank

"Top surf camp with best teachers to guide you to swell waves"

From the moment I contacted Redouan I knew I had a feeling this was going to be a special place. He was very accommodating to my requirements and patient with my needs and requests, this can be said for all Atlanticzin team.

The school has the best teachers and it only took a week of listening to teachers' tips and the waves to advance the level of my surfing to new heights. Everyone who works at Atlanticzin are there for love of surfing and the ocean and to share this love and passion with others. All teachers and staff were patient, accommodating and beautiful humans who made the trip one to remember. Equipment and accommodation are top of the range, the vibe is you are part of one big and happy surfing community sharing the love of the swell of a wave and aliveness, freedom and the feeling of becoming one with the ocean it brings to a body of water that one inhabits...The city of Essaouira has a magical energy to it and it's the place to step for the first time or any time on your surfboard, the bedrock of the ocean is smooth, the beach sandy and soft, and the waves are continuous, swell, powerful in a subtle and fluid way, and kind and exhilarating to body and soul, like people here, if you have the capacity, passion and patience to listen, surrender, open up and go with the flow to receive the grace of the moment.

I just left Essaouira and I am already planning another trip there.

This was by far the best experience I have had. They are not just a surf/kitesurf school, they are a family away from home.

Thank you Redouan for creating such an amazing school with talented and passionate people.

Thank you Youssef for being such an angel instructor: you were very patient but still pushing me every minute.

Thank you Imad for being always so encouraging and positive.

And thank you to the entire team, so many young friendly and passionate guys.

I cannot wait to see you all again soon for some more kitesurfing and fun! :)

The staff and the instructors are very friendly and helpful, they even would assist you with other issues during your stay in Essaouira.

The equipment were OK, and working properly and sufficiently.

Meike Krause

We booked a 5 days surfing package with atlanticzin and we don’t regret it at all! They came to pick us up at the bus stop, took us to our accommodation and to the surf school. The package included the accommodation, breakfast, one hour Yoga + 2 hours surfing every day, unlimited surfboard rental and a dinner with some of the team and it was worth every penny. We were a small group and the staff was really flexible and chill. I would definitely recommend everyone to go surfing with them :)

Thanks a lot atlanticzin!! Already thinking about coming back
