"Nice waves and good vibes"

My instructor Rachid was nice, professional and very patient considering that it was my first time surfing. The wetsuit included and the shower facility. The farewell dinner was a nice opportunity to socialize and meet the team in a relaxing ambient.

"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

"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

"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

"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).

"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.

Very friendly stuff


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

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

"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.

"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!

"Exellent experience"

The accommodation was beautiful and comfortable. The instructor was very patient I did enjoy my time there and I will come back for more lessons

The guys couldn’t do enough to help. Fun, supportive, kind, patient, interesting. Nothing was too much and they were the friendliest people I’ve met travelling.


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.

"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!

"A home away from home"

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! :)

"Completely satisfied with Atlanticzin,"

The staff and the instructors are very friendly and helpful, they even would assist you with other issues during your stay in Essaouira. Yusef was our Instructor for majority of our Kitesurfing Lessons. He is a very friendly, helpful, patient and correct guy with a proven experience as instructor. The equipment were OK, and working properly and sufficiently.
