We had an amazing trip to Essaouria with our tour guide Karim. The night before we were at a wedding until very late and we were so tired that we didn't want to go. But the trip was totally worth it!! First, Karim was an awesome guide! He was so chill, knowledgeable, and had traveled all around the world on amazing adventures. His stories were entertaining, to say the least! :D We stopped to snap a photo of the goats in the tree. When we got to Essaouira, we ate at a local cafe that served bread and the yummiest and most natural butter and honey. Then we checked out the beach with camels and kiteboarders. But due to the windy conditions, we settled on a more protected break and surfed for hours. Afterwards, we explored the town, which was beautiful and historical and down to earth. On the ride home, we stopped to watch the Fantasia for awhile. Both my husband and I LOVED it! <3

Surfing and more - a fantastic day!

Karim was an excellent guide. Lots of interesting information throughout the trip - from history to agriculture! Essaouira was gorgeous and it was great that Karim was able to rearrange the schedule to get the best of the surf conditions. A fantastic way to see another part of the country and catch some waves Thanks Karim!

Amazing trip

We had an absolutely amazing surf trip to Essaouira with Karim a really excellent teacher. He taught my partner and my friends to stand up for their first time on a board within twenty minutes and gave me fantastic pointers to take my surfing ability to the next level. I can highly recommend Marrakech Surf and snow to anyone wanting to surf on this beautiful coast. I only wish I could stay here longer!
