Best Surfcamp, best crew and cool people! I had a wonderful stay, everybody really took good care of us and I had the best time ever. First time in Morocco, I love the spots and it really helped me go through all the experiences in detail. I couldn't have been made to feel more at home. Taghazout is magical!

"So glad I went!"
I was a little unsure about booking a surf camp holiday as I'm a complete beginner and was on my own (as well as being a little older), but I'm so glad i booked with Shaka Surf! I had a great 4 days of surfing - the instructor's were generally really helpful and patient, and definitely improved a lot. Everything was nice and chilled out, I met some really cool people and the food all week was amazing.
Beth was so helpful, including sorting out yoga/massage sessions and saving me some dinner when i arrived late after flight delays :-) She also took some really good photos.
Hassan and Boba were great instructors, they helped me catch some nice waves.
All in all, a great 4 days - I only wish I was still there!

"Solo surf break"
Beth and Hassan offer a fantastic service all round. They’re both very friendly and helpful. Beth’s attention to detail is incredible - she thinks of everything you might need for a comfortable stay and provides it. Hassan’s passion is the surfing side of things and he takes a lot of pride in helping you improve, no matter what level you are. All their staff are great and can’t do enough for you. Overall it was a fantastic little break during which my surfing turned a corner, so I’m really grateful. I’ll definitely return.

"Hand-crafted Surf Adventure"
I had a fantastic stay with Shaka in Morocco and cannot recommend them high enough. I stayed in many surf camps before and I long hesitated going back to one as my biggest concern as an intermediate surfer is to end up being stuck in an overbooked camp, catered only for beginners where the main focus is partying and not much surfing. But my experience at Shaka has been the complete opposite and a very pleasant surprise. From the very beginning, Beth the main host has been supportive and informative about my upcoming stay, making sure that even before my arrival there was the right board for me. The groups were small, and catered for individual needs of everyone present. Growing up in the area, Hassan and all the other guides have a very good knowledge of the surf spots and could scout out the best spots for any condition. There is a good selection of boards and the accommodation is clean and comfortable. I got sick during my stay and Beth ensured I had everything I needed and I felt well looked after, the Riad is actually a really nice place to just relax and hang out when you don't feel to well or need a rest day. As a solo female traveler this is a great place to meet other people if you don't want to surf all by yourself. All the lunches are home made by Hassan's family and really delicious. The whole time there was complete family vibe, and Hassan and Beth are so passionate about their job and caring about every client which I highly admire. Thank you guys so much!

"Great Trip. Personalised service warmly delivered "
Beth, Hassan and the rest of the team are always warm and engaging which makes the experience a bit like hanging out with old friends. The tuition and guiding was first class and tailored to your individual needs. There was a selection of boards I used a Torq Modern Fish board which I liked more than expected, there were torq,bic and softies to use - if you want something more specialist then suggest you bring it out (check your airline regs carefully but from UK easyJet is usually good with boards). Weather and waves were excellent. Food was great, communal space at Riad were lovely, hot showers, clean linen, good bed etc. Over all really great value for money and a trip I would like to repeat but for longer next time.

"A welcoming and friendly experience"
Hassan and Beth were really good hosts looking after us beginner surfers. As well as being a patient instructor for a newbie Hassan took us to all the good spots for good waves depending on the winds and conditions.
When my arms were too exhausted from the paddling we had some good time watching the other surfers struggle with a cup of coffee at the beach cafe or with some mint tea from the vendors at the beach. And Rachid made a good work getting some nice pictures from catching the morning waves when my arms were still listening to me.
Besides surfing, Beth, Hassan, Rachid and the other people at the Riad, were really good at welcoming and introducing us to this unique place in the world of surfer culture mixed with the Berber / Saharan / Moroccan surroundings.

Went for a 6-days course with Shaka in September and had a great experience there - everything was well organised and the instructors were super helpful. Hassan and Beth actually care about their guests. My first time in Morocco and first time surfing - would love to come back one day and recommend to anyone who want to learn to surf!
