"Excellent experience "
I really enjoyed competent and professional instructors providing personalised lessons tailored lessons for my competency level. I was only starting with kitesurfing and even though it was challenging, i was able to already stand ont he board at the end of the week. I was lucky to be alone in the camp during the period- but the team took very good care of me and made sure I was never bored and lonely. 10/10.

"Actieve gezellige vakantie"
Abdul spreekt goed engels wat het makkelijk en gezellig maakt om een week samen op te trekken. Zijn vrouw, Laura, maakt heerlijk eten en ook de andere instructeurs zijn erg behulpzaam en aardig. Ik reisde alleen en voelde me snel op mijn gemak in de groep. Vooral in het kiten gaven de instructeurs (abdul, Ismael en 1 naam ben ik vergeten) hele goede tips! Ik maakte snel progressie. In de surfles moesten we iets meer vragen om tips, hier lag niet hun focus. Wij konden echter wel al surfen en ik zag dat ze bij de beginners hier wel veel meer echt naast waren om te helpen. Er was maar 3 dagen wind, wat jammer was. Maar ze organiseerde dan gewoon een ander uitje waardoor je alsnog de hele dag op pad was. Ze zijn erg flexibel en je kan ook zelf aangeven wat je prettig vindt. Kortom een mooie ervaring. Bedankt!

People are generally very friendly, Laura's lunches are beyond delicious, I started to appreciate Moroccan's food more ever since. Abdou is a fabulous instructor, he is willing to go extra miles to take us to the right place. Under his guidance, I started to build up skills for kiting both directions. Also when there's no wind, Abdou and his team took us to surfing and tech us the surfing technique, which is an absolute fun! Thank you all.
P.S. will try to avoid booking during Ramadan next time.

Abdou and his team were very well organised. Laura was very easy to contact before flying out with all the information I needed. Unfortunately the wind wasnt as good as it could of been but when we did Abdou was a very good instructor with very good English, when the wind was down he was happy to take us to other places e.g the sand dunes for sand surfing. Abdou was always happy to go out of his way to make us happy. Laura's lunches were also very nice. I would definitely recommend them and will hopefully be back again. Mark

Everything in this course was outstanding. The instructor (Abdou) is not only an amazing kitesurfer but a great trainer, patient, and extremly knowledgable
from Netherlands, December 2018
Swellsurf exits of close friends around Abdou an Laura (organisation and excellent healthy food) that made jobs from their hobbies. You experience every day the joy they have!
it seems like Abdou knows everyone and every place from Agadir to Essouira and let us benefit from that. Friendly, patience and chill as he is. Even afther work, he is always there for you!
If the wind for example is better in Essouira, he drives us 160km. Abdou is capable in doing everything, except the weather. That's إن شاء الله,! Few days were not optimal for kitesurfing, but even better for surfing!
Being home, except beautiful (kite)surf experiences, I miss my new friends, Abdou, Laura, Rashit and Badr, King Loub I! Till next time!

"Lots of Learning and Laughter "
The guys (and girl!) at Swell Surf were awesome. Its easy to see that they love what they do and they make it look easy making sure everyone is learning quickly, safely and having fun. Not only did I learn a lot about kitesurfing but I came back with a refreshed outlook on life, human relationships and a nice tan.
from Great Britain, October 2018
Would like to thank again for the camp Abdou and Laura.
It was worth it definitely and I loved been there. I know I was a bit tough nuts to teach for kitesurf but Abdou was so calm and all the hard work paid well 👊🤙
Loved Laura’s lunches everyday 😘
A bit shame about the last 2 days weather but still had really good time 👌😉
Hope to see you guys in the spring time, already looking at the fly's 😁 lol
Thanks again guys, all the best 👍

"Great time with an excellent company "
Unlimited kitesurfing or surfing classes with experienced and encouraging instructors. Very relaxing and friendly atmosphere and people who are always willing to go an extra mile to make sure that you have the best time ever. Also guys took us to few nice places around Agadir and Bannana Village only known to the local people so we could have a real Morocco experience.

"Amazing holiday "
The 8 days I spent with swell surf is just incredible. I did not expect the hostel to be so delicate while the staff are just so friendly and helpful all the time.
Abdou is not only a great instructor but also a very nice person indeed. He is so patient and tried to teach us as much as he could. While the wind condition is not so satisfying he always finds something else amazing for us to explore. He took us to the paradise valley and small Sahara which are just perfect. He is always on time, always ready to listen and help. He even bought me a box of cookies when I was about to take the bus to my next stop coz he knew I would be hungry on the way. How thoughtful he is!
I did not have the chance to meet Laura but I bet she is as great as the lunch she has prepared for us. The food is not only healthy, delicious but looks like masterpiece every time I opened the lunch box.
Badr is the assistant instructor and he is being funny all the time. I really think he should start a talk show and I'll be a big fan of it.

"amazing experience "
Just an overall perfect experience. I didn’t just learn the technique, I learned to live in the moment of the waves (thanks to Abdou) and found new friends. The food/lunch was always extremely delicious, thanks to Laura!
I’m just very very happy I booked with swell surf Morocco!
from Netherlands, July 2018
"exceeding my expectations"
both abdou and badr made me feel more then welcome! even though the surf season was almost over, i had the best time ever.
if you are looking for a small surf camp with warm and welcoming people, this is the place to be.they will do all within their power to give you the best experience there possibly is.

"Unreal experience! "
I started the camp with very limited experience (couldn't water start). By the end of the camp, Abdou had me doing jumps! The whole week was the perfect combination of structured kite sessions and free time to visit the beautiful area. I hope I will have the opportunity to go back and kite with them again! Laura, your lunches are amazing. Abdou and everyone else involved, thanks for the great week.
from Canada, May 2018
My week in Agadir with Swell Surf was just perfect, lots of sunshine, strong winds, perfect for kitesurfing lessons. Abdou, Badr and Laura make fantastic team, very professional and fun. Abdou was a very good instructor, extremely patient and kind, always encouraging me, I am really glad that I could progress a lot and feel comfortable enough to start doing it all by myself here in Canada. ADVISE: bring water shoes, bit if don’t have them, go to Agadir’s Decathlon store. Laura’s lunch boxes are delicious, my first contact with Moroccan food couldn’t be better, she contacted me in advance to check on my food allergies. Badr was in charge of all my transfers and he is the one took me to Paradise Valley (which is incredible).
The accommodation (Riad Imourane, in Tamraght) is very cozy, clean and the staff is friendly. The village is small, but is it has convenience stores and local restaurants with good Moroccan, vegetarian and Mediterranean food for very good prices.
THANK YOU SWELL SURF TEAM !!!!

"Value for Money --> Absolutely Amazing!"
Bader (Surfing) and Abdul (Kite-Surfing) are fantastic. They are very cool people and fun to be the entire day with. Even though we didn't have wind on a few days, it was always fun with these guys to hang out, try surfing instead of kite-surfing or just chilling.
The everyday's Lunches made by the wife of Abdul are delicious! Also the dinner at the hostel are just awesome. It's been a while since I ate so good and so healthy at the same time!
Everybody seems to be very eager to provide the best service. Also the people in the hostel are fun and stayed with us a few times in the evening just to talk and chill.
All this for such a price is simply unique. Thanks guys, I had a great time and will probably come back someday!

"More than You can wish for! :) "
As we arrived in Agadir we had a very warm welcome from everyone throughout the holiday.
Me and my boyfriend had tried kitesurfing few times but had not got far so kitesurfing for beginners felt like a good idea – it turned out to exceed all expectations!
Thank You Abdou for being the absolute best kitesurfing instructor we have ever met! It was easy to learn from someone so skilled, attentive, thorough, patient and happy.
Another wonderful surprise were the lunches at the beach. Thank You Laura for being absolute genius in the kitchen! As we tried many different restaurants the lunch was always better than dinner – amazing!
The whole trip was very well planned to details and so much more than we expected! There are no words to describe how happy we are that we had this wonderful experience.
There are so many places to discover in the world but this was one of those where you know you want to come back.
See You all next year around same time – if not sooner! :)
With Best Wishes from Estonia

"60 year olds bucket list ticked"
I’ve just returned home from one of the best holidays I have ever had. I booked a beginners kitesurfing course for both myself and my son. Neither of us had any kite surfing experience or been to Morocco. I’m a fairly agile 60 year old however I was understandably a little apprehensive as kite surfing can be a dangerous sport if you don’t follow some fairly simple basic rules. However, through Abdou’s patience and expert tuition, by our last day we were almost riding the board. If the wind conditions hadn’t have become too gusty for beginners I’m confident we would have got there. We met many other kitesurfing students from around the world who had taken kitesurfing lessons elsewhere and they all said the same thing, “Abdou was the best instructor they had ever had”. I personally didn’t participate in the surfing however the feedback I got from the surf students was that Bader was also an excellent instructor. Both Abdou and Bada did everything they could to make our stay in Morocco as interesting and enjoyable as possible by taking us to a local Moroccan fish market for lunch and to paradise valley. Abdou’s wife Laura works hard behind the scenes and swiftly answered any questions or concerns I had before our trip. She also provides delicious packed lunches on a daily basis which we all looked forward to eating. Swell Surf Morocco are a professional outfit that has customer care as a top priority. They are also excellent value for the money. I recommend them 100%

"Best surf guiding experience ever !"
I was very lucky to book my surf guiding package with Surf swell Morocco company. Abdul, Badr and Laura, small but very effective team of very nice persons which you agree on almost anything with. Abdul is very flexible, yet always on time, ready to take you to the best spots for surf just when the tide is right and wind's offshore. For Surf swell Morocco company, virtually nothing is a problem. Even if the conditions do not favor the wave surfing, you don't have to worry, you can switch to kite surfing and go with the wind if you like. I was really impressed, this was one of my best surf holiday ever.
from Ireland, April 2018
"kite boarding paradise"
I loved the fact that abdou would stayed later a couple times when there was no wind during the daytime and picked up in the afternoon. Equipment was all in mint condition. Had a good selection of kites too for different winds. Had me standing on the kite board by on the third day. Can’t thank the guys enough for the whole holiday one ill remember forever
from Ireland, April 2018
"Week of paradise!"
Our instructors being just so friendly and professional and willing to be so flexible to accommodate all 5 of our needs! Willing always to find the best surf spots (some local and secret:) ). Any days without decent waves were spent adventuring anywhere we wanted....paradise valley, jet skiing and quad biking! All lunches were sooooooooo nice and fresh and different every day (thanks Laura!😁). Thanks to the guys abdoul and badr for an amazing weeks surfing hope to do it again some time!

"An experience, not just a kite surfing opportunity"
Abdou the instructor, a fantastic sense of humour, great knowledge as you'd hope on guiding me as a beginner and when the winds were too light there was an opportunity to 'attempt' to learn to surf. Very chilled out, great to experience eating in the local fish markets and the trip to Paradise Valley as an excursion to see something different than the coastline. Abdou makes all the difference, I was lucky to have such a good guide and now new friend. I hope to return to complete what we started.

"One week of fun :)"
The whole Camp was a great experience. The hotel was super cozy and I apreciated that it wasnt too big, in that way it is way easier to get in contact with the other guests (mainly wave surfers attending different surf schools). You can also eat dinner at the hotel which tasts really good. The staff of the hotel.is also really nice :)
Regarding the kitesurfing we were unfortunately only 3 times able to use the kite based on bad luck with the wind. But even with the three times we made it on the board even though it were just for few seconds 😅. However, when the wind was low we went wave surfing, played volleyball at the beach or just enjoyed the sun.
Even though it might be a small team, doesnt mean its bad at all, it makes you feel being in a great, fun family who really care about you and try to make your stay as good as possible.
And the lunches are awesome as well! I always loved the little notes on them that had sometimes one or two words in your own language on them, super kind :)
So all in all its just a great camp and its up to you what you make out of it when the wind is low,because Abdou and the others do the best they can to make it an unforgetable experience :)

"More than just kitesurfing"
The entire team of Swell Surf did their best (and succeeded) in order to make us enjoy everyday we spent together. We didn't have the best wind conditions (not anyones fault), but after starting from a absolute beginner now I feel capable and confident to keep improving on my own with kitesurfing. Abdou made a good demonstration of experience and patience as a instructor and as a guide. Laura's food not only was very good but also always made me smile every time I opened it. Badr and Othman were with us all the time too and also were cool people to hangout with and good drivers (really appreciated in Morocco). Not only we did kite lessons (in Agadir and Essauira due to the wind) but also surfing, tourism, having typical lunches, and other things that I'll let you discover for yourself.
shukran/ačiū Swell Surf team!

"Is not just another experience,is "The Experience""
When I booked this package I was expecting to do kite surf every day, but this is a sport that depends from nature and unfortunately in Agadir there wasn't much wind in that week. And if there is no wind is up to you to choose to be upset and grumpy or choose to go with the Moroccan flow and enjoy every single moment because Abdou, Laura, Othman, Bader and Rashid will do their best to make your stay unforgettable.
I did surf and Thanks to Abdou I managed to stand on the board which I wasn't able to do in my previous camp; they took us to Essaouira where we had 2 wonderful day of strong wind and kite lessons and I also learned the crab/ kite dance with Othman, so much fun!! If you want to enjoy the movida night Bader is the party guy, he will make sure you have a perfect night out.
The Riad was clean and cozy, the people very kind and welcoming and the food delicious.
I had such a great time with this people and for me everything was perfect!!
from Belgium, November 2017
The stay at the surf hotel was perfect. This hotel is used by different surf schools (mostly wave surfing - Swell Surf Camp was the only Kite surf school). So at night you could meet different people with all the same interests, which was very nice.
Rachid (my instructor) is an nice guy. He really tried to make my stay as pleasant as possible. On low wind moments (unfortunately most of the time) we went visiting Paradise valley, some hot springs, Hamam...
from Great Britain, October 2017
The beach was really nice, and the Riad cosy. I met some great people!

"Don't miss! Fantasic overall experience I highly recommend!"
I stayed for a 8 days in Agadir and had so much fun!!! Every day the main focus was kite surfing! What a great sport to be doing, I was addicted from day 1 onwards!! Nevertheless, if there wasn't enough wind, Abdoul and his team made sure we had the best time! Whether this was while wave surfing, paddle boarding, playing soccer on the beach, chatting on a blanket in the sun or visiting one of the surrounding places, every day was a success!!! Whenever the wind picked up we quickly got ourselves ready to practice as much kite surfing as we could!!! Because of this and their great teaching skills, at the end of the week I did manage to stand up and to ride the board on the water!!! Every day we received an amazing lunch from Laura who is super sweet and an absolute amazing chef!!! These guys really make your holiday and experience well worth!!!
from Netherlands, June 2017
"Great overall experience "
Had an amazing week in Agadir because of this kitesurf/surfing camp. Unfortunately there was not much wind this week. But they tried to go as much as possible and take every opportunity to go kiting. What's also a good thing is when there is no wind it doesn't mean that you can't do anything because they also offer wave surfing lessons. So I also learned a bit of wavesurving. Both Habib and Abdou give clear instructions and are real motivators, what makes a difference in learning how to surf. Besides the surfing you make trips and get to know more about Agadir and it's surroundings. Habib, Abdou and Laura are friendly and fun people that makes your stay one you'll remember. And also Laura's food is really, really good. So just go! :)

"Very nice instructor's and enjoyed my stay very much! "
I booked a kite surf camp and from the first day I felt really welcome and a chill vibe! Abdou, the instructor was very good in explaining all the theory and safety instructions before we went kiting. Also they give you a lot off feedback, so you will learn really fast. The people were very chill and nice, so I felt comfortable right away! Although we didn't had wind all/ every day abdou really made sure you had a good stay. We went on few excursion through out the week that were nice and although I didn't book a regular surf camp the days we didn't had wind I got to do regular surfing instead, so that was nice as well.
The accommodation is a nice riad to relax after busy day. Although there is no Wi-Fi in the rooms (I didn't mind) it's a good place to stay.
So Abdou, Zakaria and Laura many thanks for the great week I enjoyed it a lot!
from Germany, November 2018
I really liked to not only do surfing and kiting but also to get to know the people better and the area.

"Awesome experience for little money"
All in all everything was a pretty positive experience.
The surf school has cool staff with whom you can joke around a lot.
Enough alternative activity is provided if there is no wind.
The meals were provided by the instructors wife and they were cooked with such love that everything tasted really amazing!
from Netherlands, May 2018
Bij aankomst had ik meteen een warm welkom gevoel, iedereen die ik heb ontmoet was super aardig. De instreuteurs waren fantastisch, meedenkend en geduldig. Vooral Badr, mijn surf instructeur ging altijd net een stapje verder om te helpen of je wegwijs te maken in het gebied. De Riad heeft een hele fijne huiselijke sfeer en het eten is echt heel goed. Alles bij elkaar echt een top week!
Had an unbelievable all-round experience at Swell Surf Morocco in my time there from February 13 to 20, 2017. Highly recommend it to all for the location, people, weather and offered fantastic value. The two Instructors, Abdou and Habib, were great guys, inspiring, and fun, while genuinely having your interests at heart to ensure you have a good time. I did the kitesurfing and surfing and got lots of time doing both, learned a lot and will definitely be keeping them up. Accomodation, travel, views, beaches, food, lunches all excellent too, so scoring all-round 10 out of 10. I would go back in a heartbeat!
