Morocco Surf Camp

Surfs Up In The Atlantic!

Shrouded by the mountains that stretch deep into Morocco´s heart, perched perfectly on the warm swell of the West African Atlantic, the fishing town of Taghazout has become home to the Xtreme Gap Surf Camp. Devoted riders themselves, these guys are passionate about everything surf and dedicated ambassadors of the waves.

Morocco Surf Camp: Trip Highlights

  • One week in the eternal sunshine becoming a surf God.
  • Hanging 10 on some the best beach breaks in Africa
  • Devouring the mouth watering Tagine, was watching the gorgeous African sunset
  • Learning to surf with friendly Berber surf guides
  • Riding camels and riding waves with guaranteed blue skies and good surf
  • Stretch and relax with included yoga sessions (yoga option)
  • Haggling with the best of them in true Moroccan style


At the surf camp you really will live and sleep by the waves. The camp duck-dives the swell all night; sitting literally on the shoreline, you will never be too far from the action, and whether you´re dusting off a tagine on our dinner-time roof terrace or chilling out with some surf vid action in our lounge, we guarantee that reassuring sound of a crashing wave will never be too far away.

Your accommodation will be shared, in apartments close to the Xtreme Gap camp, nestled in the square roofed, sun baked buildings of Taghazout, just a stone´s throw from some of Morocco´s greatest breaks.
