Full description
Day 1: Leave Marrakech as you get picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned van and drive to the Moroccan coast. Along the way to the old fort town of Essaouira there will be a visit to a female co-operative to see how argan oil is produced. On arrival to Essaouira you will head to the beach for your first two-hour surf lesson with your fully-qualified instructor. Whether you are a complete beginner or have surfed before your instructor will be on hand to teach, guide and develop your technique as appropriate. Enjoy lunch in one of the beachside restaurants with panoramic views of the ocean. In the afternoon you will be given a guided walking tour around the fishing harbor and fort, discovering hidden treasures in the souks and winding streets of the ancient Medina. If you are a Game of Thrones fan you will instantly recognize one of the filming locations as you explore the fort. In the evening you have time to explore the Medina by night, or simply relax in your riad.

Day 2: After a delicious breakfast on the roof top of the riad, you will depart for Imsouane, an hour south of Essaouira. This small fishing village has two amazing surf spots: Cathedral Beach and Imsouane Bay. Once you have collected your surf gear it will be time for your second two-hour lesson during which your instructor will analyze, refine and help you to improve your technique. You can choose to have lunch at one of the beach cafes, or head to the fish market and buy some fresh fish from one of the restaurants. In the afternoon you can either go out and catch some more waves or relax on the beach under the Moroccan sun, watching the surfers out in the ocean. After your day on the beach you will check into your guest house for evening, watch the sunset and enjoy a tagine on the terrace whilst listening to live music.

Day 3: Once you have had breakfast you will head back to the beach for your third surf lesson in either the Bay or at Cathedrals for two more hours of catching waves, having fun and learning new skills. You can then chill out in one of the cafes or on the beach, soaking up a few more rays and watching the world go by before leaving the coast behind and heading back to Marrakech.
