Shaka Surf Morocco Surf Camp Program

What to expect

What you will learn

The surf lessons with the experienced coaches are aimed at newcomers to surfing, providing a thorough introduction from theory all the way through to practice. The lessons will cover the all-important first steps to get you going, starting on the beach, and then moving into the water, teaching you how to handle the surfboard, safety in the water, how to read the ocean conditions, paddling, and most importantly catching those waves! Shaka Surf Morocco hopes that after a week of lessons, you will have not only discovered a new passion for surfing but made new friends and shared some great memories.
