Taghazout Bay Appartements provides surf coaching for those that want to learn how to step onto the water, surfers that want to improve in order to start having more speed when racing with the green waves, or advanced surfers that want to be able to surf more vertically. All the lessons are provided on one of the best playgrounds in the world for all levels, the Moroccan waves. Lessons are divided into groups of different levels.

On your surf holiday, they will ensure that you learn to surf from the best qualified, most experienced, and respected surf instructors in Morocco. The surf coaches are all trained in Academy of Surf Instructors (ASI) and the British Surf Association (BSA) and from Morocco. There are very strict rules about how many people they will take to a point break.

Taghazout Bay Appartements are not interested in dumping 40 people on one spot and watching all of the locals get disgruntled as their surf session is ruined. They would prefer to break the groups up and help you learn to surf under the close guidance of your group's surf instructor. Groups are limited to eight guests per one surf coach, so you can be sure of some fantastic instruction.

  • Beach awareness
  • Beach safety
  • Paddling technique
  • Standing up technique (take-off)
  • Equipment

The beginners surf lessons are always on sandy beaches and at a maximum of one and a half meters deep for a safe practice of the surfing for improvers. You will head out to the beach at 09:00 until 16:00 with a two-hour surf lesson, then you have the rest of the day to enjoy the sun or keep practicing surf.

  • Surf safety
  • Surf etiquette
  • Positioning
  • Paddling

  • Body movement and positioning

The intermediate surf lessons take place in beach breaks and mellow point breaks with a sandy bottom. Long waves are recommended for maximum progression since the Moroccan waves can offer you that.

A visit to the market in Agadir is included in this package.

The picturesque village of Taghazout rests on the edge of the Atlantic at just fifteen kilometers north of Agadir with the foothills of the High Atlas rising up behind. There, you can enjoy the sun all the year round. On arrival in the village, you will see the mosque to your right and the main square to your left. The old village consists of fisherman’s houses painted in traditional pink and white which spill down to the sea.

Wander down through the winding streets of this charming village and here you will find Taghazout Bay Appartements, housing very special apartments. This many surf sports surrounding the area are:

Agadir bay

This surf spot in Morocco has long beach break and there are different spots that share the same breaks left and rights. This spot just needs a swell of one and a half to two meters, any more than this will cause the waves to close out.

Anchor point

Anchor point is the famous point break in Morocco and it's called anchor point because in the past, the land was occupied by an anchor factory where they made many anchors for the nearby ships and boats and the spot still carries the name to this day. It is a right-hander wave, extremely fast and hollow. It works very well in low tide and when the tide goes out, it creates a very long wave and in this wave, you can expect to see it reach four and a half meters before breaking.

Anza

This spot has an awesome wave for the left and right hander. They work in low tide and high tide, but just in a swell of one and half meters. The off shore wind from the south is bad for this spot.

Banana point

Banana point is a point break and the wave is a right hander. This spot works in low tide and when the tide goes out, it is a very long wave and the wave starts to break at this spot from a swell of 1.9 to two and a half meters. When the wave reaches more than two and a half meters, the wave just closes out.

Boilers

If it's waves that you want, you certainly get them here. Wind that funnels from the mountains offers large vertical lips and speed walls and this powerful right hander washes onto a strong shallow reef.

If not with the surf instructors, this is a lot easier if you have a buddy ready to tell you when to rock off behind the ship wreck, looking on from the shore. Get ready to scamper across the reef on your way out before the next set hits. It is often visited by professional photographers for the intensity of pictures available.

Desert point

Desert point is a point break right hander that needs a swell of two meter and no wind, except on shore wind, then you get a long right hander that is a mellow, but heavy wave.

Dracula

It's called dracula because the shape of the rocks is like vampire teeth. This wave is a fast right hander that pushes some punchy and often large sets.

Km11 and km12

These are two spots with the same break and are lefts. They work in low tide and high tide, but it’s very good when the tide starts to go out and the waves become extremely hollow and fast.

Killers point

Killers point gets its name because sometimes if you are lucky, you can find killer whales playing there and jumping in the ocean. They eat what they can find around the rocks. This spot works when there is a swell of two meters. Here, you will find hard sets coming from the right.

If you paddle out to the left side for around 1,000 meters, you are going to find a hollow left that is just so fast and shallow. Everyone, and especially the professionals from around the world, including Kelly Slater, have enjoyed this wave. Guaranteed, you will have an adrenaline filled experience.

Tamri

This ultra consistent beach break is the place to go when Taghazout is flat. Quick back sections pay privilege to an even more constant beach push, strong currents at times, but a fun ride all the same. For beginners, just be aware how far you have drifted down the coast. The lush estuary is home to camels and flamingos, a truly wonderful spot.

Nearby places

  • Agadir, 15 kilometers

Three daily meals and a barbecue day are included in this package.

Essaouira or Mogador

Essaouira is a seaside town located in Morocco. It is a port city on the Atlantic coast, 180 kilometers from Marrakech and 173 kilometers from the city of Agadir. It is close to these two major Moroccan tourist cities and has played an important role in the history of Morocco.

Its history begins in 814 BC, as it was a major trading post during that time. Throughout its history, Essaouira has been influenced by the Romans and the Portuguese. Many monuments still bear witness to the passage of these dynasties, in addition to its geographic location; making it a joyous Moroccan tourist destination.

Ouarzazate

Ouarzazate is a city in southern Morocco. It is the gateway to the Moroccan desert and is located at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains. It is a quiet Berber town that is well known by its innumerable Kasbahs (traditional houses or people living in a community).

It houses the Kasbah Taourirte, which belonged to the former strongman of the region, Pasha El Glaoui. Ouarzazate is currently experiencing unprecedented development, especially in the field of tourism and the film industry. In fact, the city has been utilized in several films including Gladiator and Babel.

Ourika Valley

Located about 30 kilometers from the city of Marrakech, the Ourika Valley is nestled within the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco and although close to the capital, the beautiful green valley of Ourika is one of the best preserved. Visiting this wonderful site can make for some interesting discoveries including extraordinary natural views and exploration of authentic mountain lifestyle of the people who have preserved some of their age-old customs.

Ouzoud waterfalls

Ouzoud is an impressive waterfall 100 meters high located 150 kilometers from Marrakech. It is a good day trip to escape the red city and have a chance to visit the surrounding countryside. All those who are fond of the wonders of nature will be greatly overwhelmed by the spectacle that is offered by Ouzoud.

The waterfall torrent falls beautifully upon into a green valley. Resupplied with water from the lake, the waters of Ouzoud waterfalls trickle without pause. Outside of the incredible waterfalls, one can also admire some trees that constitute a landscape worthy of a postcard.

If you need a break from the physical demands of the surf, relax and treat yourself to a four-handed massage at the local hammam.

    "I went surfing for the first time and won two new best buddies: Mohammed and the surfboard :) Mohammed has been recommended to us by I friend and we were lucky to have Mohammed just for us two surf students. The surf lessons were exceptionally good and a lot of fun. Mohammed drove us to different surf spots and also to places we wanted to go to in our "free time". And on our last day all the way from Agadir to Marrakech airport. We will come back! "

    "After a lot of researching and review-reading I chose Surfline and it was the best decision of my trip."

    "I was travelling solo in Morocco and took intermediate lessons with Mohammed which were just fantastic. I wanted to find the best instructor to improve my surfing and spend as much time in the water as possible and this was it. I was unlucky to have been in Morocco during the flattest month (August) but Momo managed to find me waves every day, and away from all the other surf schools. The places we surfed was just us in the water so perfect for learning new techniques on empty waves. I not only improved my surfing technique in my time with him but also how to read waves better and just all over surfing knowledge. I learnt and improved more in my short time with Surfline than in the past four years of surfing!"

    "Mohammed is an incredible surfer and a great teacher who is very professional. He answered all my questions about surfing from rips to board choice."

    "(I also have never seen anyone pickup that much speed and get airs on small waves!)"

    "So if you want to get better at surfing and learn from the best or just get shown all the best spots, then don't look anywhere else. I will be back in winter for sure when the swell returns! "

    "It's been a dream of mine to learn to surf since I was little so I was really looking forward to the week ahead. Surfline Morocco didn't disappoint."

    "I explored many different beaches around the Tamraght area thanks to Mohammed and got to explore the local markets and surrounding areas."

    "Not even sure where to start! First I should say Morocco is a great country to visit and if you are a surfer Tamaraght area is the place to be. For me booking my time there with Mohammed at Surfline Morocco was a great stroke of luck. The value of what I received is priceless. I was picked up by Mo at the bus station in agadir as planned, and taken to a very comfortable and friendly "riad" style hotel. After quickly dropping off my bags we went directly to surf! Mo knows the area well and is highly skilled in figuring out which spot will best suit your style of surfing. In my case I was able to surf with Mo and learn from him as he is a very good surfer himself. Throughout my stay I was looked after, taken to the best surf spots, and made to feel very comfortable the whole time. After 2 weeks of staying with Surfline Morocco I can easily say that Mohammed made my best surf trip to date! "
