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!
This surf camp was fantastic and quite easy going! In another surf camp I went to, we were very scheduled and you did not have much option to modify.
With a few rough surf days, we were able to pivot and do some day trips that I highly recommend (Paradise Valley, Legzira, Marrakesh and the Sahara). You are with Habib and Abdou each day and can chat through options any time. Laura's meals are fantastic and we were honored to be hosted in their home for a meal as well. You end up feeling like family at the end of the week!
For lodging, the surf camp does not actually tie itself to a particular option. The riyadh we stayed had fantastic staff! The hotel itself only had wifi in the lobby and was more like a really nice hostel.
My experience was really super fantastic!!! I did not just learn to surf, unexpectedly I lived true Morocco with true friends!!! I recommend it to everybody!! I was really lucky to have chosen this school!
I went to Agadir to get some winter sun end and to do a few days kiteboarding. I’d previously spent a couple of days kiteboarding last year in the Canary Islands and my aim was to stand and go for bit this time. Looking through the reviews on TripAdvisor I found Swell Surf and am so happy I did because Abdou and Habib are such friendly and fun people and such great instructors.
I really made a lot of progress with their patient teaching and by the end of the week was just about getting there on the water starts and had some good runs which made all the face-planting totally worthwhile! I was fairly lucky with the wind which picked up all days except for one and we were lucky that we could head down the beach to the Lagoon near the Palace which was a great and safe place to learn. Honestly I couldn’t believe how patient the guys were
I’d also really recommend Agadir as a place to visit (see other reviews) but lots of stuff from the Paradise Valley to the National Parks and a cool chilled out vibe especially compared to Marrakesh.
Would definitely recommend Abdou and Habib and would definitely go back myself.
I recommend to all people (family, friends, couples..) to go to Swell Surf Morocco ! Habib and Abdou are very good instructors, friendly, disponible to help you and give you advises for a great surf session! It was a pleasure to spend the week with them!!
Agadir is a great place for surfing, conditions are very good (always waves) and days with many winth the waves can be big and very fun for surfing! We could try too kite surf! Great experience and Abdou give very good advises!
If you don't want to surf, you can plan others activities easily (visit of Agadir, the paradise valley, small village, desert...) Abdou and Habid are there to help you. We had liberty to plan each days of our holydays.
We can enjoy grilled fishes, just near the port of Agadir it was delicious!!!!
To resume, it was an amazing week in Agadir with Swell surf Morocco, it was the first time in Morocco and for surfing and for sure not the last! It was perfect.
Thanks to Abdou, Habib, Laura too for the welcoming, and for their kindness I will never forget that's first moments of surfing!!
That was my first time when I decided to try surfing and it turned out to be the best experience ever! Thanks to wonderful instructors - Habib and Abdou, I was able not only to catch and enjoy the waves, but also to know and to fall in love with the Moroccan culture and people. Thank you, guys! I will come back for sure!
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! :)
Abdou and Habib were fantastic instructors and welcomed us into their culture, making it far more than a watersports holiday experience! So much attention to detail was put into the trip, with help from Laura, which made the holiday unforgettable. Thanks!

We spent two unforgettable weeks in Agadir last December 2016. This was our first time experiencing surfing, and we both fell in love with it! Special thanks to Habib who introduced us to the waves the way he did: we felt we were in good hands. Habib payed a lot of attention to the safety, and at the same we were having fun from the first moment. Can't wait to come back to the waves!

The two insrtuctors Abdu and Habib are very friendly, helpful, patient and always in a good mood and they took care of us as we would be friends. When there was no wind they taught us surfing, we played volleyball. We were never bored. I can not imagine a better teacher than these guys. Thanks Laura for the delicious Moroccan food. Highly recommended!
I spent one week in Agadir learning to kite surf. I've got to mention that I had tried it before and that I had some unpleasant experience of accidentally flying because I couldn't properly control the kite. I was very afraid but wanted to give it one more chance. And thanks to Abdou, my kite surf instructor from swell surf, I overcame my fear, got comfortable with the kite, and started riding. It was an amazing experience. Abdou, unlike other instructors I've met before, didn't rush through the course, he gave me time to get confident with the kite, which was very important for me. Even on the days when there was not enough wind (yes, unfortunately this might happen) he gave me some extra tips and tricks and made sure I was safe and ready to start surfing.
And last but not least, I would like to say thank you to Laura for her attention, special care and all the great lunch boxes :)
Girlfriend and I (beginner and intermediate surfers) had a fantastic one week of surfing with Swell Surf Morocco team! We've been to few surf schools before but this one was absolutely the best! We would like to thank Laura for her extra delicious lunch boxes, Abdul for being so kind when the ocean was flat to show us the first steps of kite surfing, Uthman for driving us around and a very special thanks to our surf instructor and dear friend Habib, for helping us to surf better, showing us secret spots and Moroccan way of life and taking care that we had a great time! Hope to see you guys soon!

The purpose of going to Morocco was to try surfing. We met Habib accidentally who turned out to be a great teacher. He was in charge of us for a couple of days and made everything to get us on surf. He provides exceptional professionalism in what he does with amazing hospitality. Looking forward to getting on board again!

I spent 10 days in Agadir, to learn surf and kite surf. The experience was really excellent. Swell surf morocco is real to recommend and I am grateful for everything they shared with me during my stay! I hope to return soon to Agadir and enjoy again these two sports I have learned.
