Morocco Surf Camp: Full Details

The Xtreme Gap Morrocco Surf Camp

The surf camp is one week seven days six nights.

The Moroccan south coast is fast becoming a haven for anyone looking to conquer some waves while exploring the mosaic of desert, mountain, beach and bustle that this country ” a gateway to the African continent – offers.

Quality not quantity is the name of the game here, in terms of both waves and experience. The surf camp packages have been developed to maximise riding time and surfer development, while the opportunity to participate in a wholly immersive experience, with salt-spray waves in the day and spiced up tagine at night, is what´s given these guys their great local reputation.

The Xtreme Team

Being dedicated surf instructor means knowing your sport, and we´re really passionate about making the best surfers out of all our campers. All our instructors are qualified by the Moroccan Surfing Federation or the French Surfing Federation, have passed Nick Thorn´s BSA, and have grown up surfing these beaches, so they really know the local swells and turns.

We structure our beginner lessons to encourage surfing development over a week, while more advanced surfers can get detailed technique advice – from choosing the right waves to technical maneuvering.

We´re the only surf school in Morocco that will get you riding with the locals, which means that you´re right in the thick of Taghazout´s surf culture from the get go, with that all important insider knowledge that will help you get the best breaks and longest rides.

The Surf

Our instructors are hounds in the hunt for the most pristine waves, and we can guarantee they will get you surfing the breaks that suit your level and style. Whether it´s the points´ right peelers, the reef breaks in Mysteries and Boilers or the beginner´s beach breaks at Devil´s point, you´ll be sure to find something worthy of your ride here.

When you´re Not Surfing

Odd as it may sound, we realise that surf camps aren´t always about surfing. They´re about riding waves and discovering different places too, and we don´t want anyone to leave us without their fair share of Morocco – from the dust clad foothills and mountain vistas of the anti-Atlas mountains that shroud Taghazout from behind, to the babel of local fishing village life, the hubbub of Agadir´s bazaars, and the sporadic countryside forests nestled in the aptly named and nearby Paradise Valley.

So, if you or the surf is ever feeling flat, just quiz one of the team, and we´ll point you in the right direction for any activity that takes your fancy. Whether you want to sustain the adrenaline of the waves dune biking in nearby Massa game park, get traditional with a camel ride, raise some sand galloping your way across Taghazout´s surrounding beaches, or soothe those out-surfed muscles with a local Moroccan argan oil massage, we’ve got it all!

There´s also the opportunity to unwind with top quality yoga instructors, who take classes for as low as £12 in local currency in some of the most panoramic spots in the area. You can stretch those aches and pains out, while the sea spray rises from Anchor point below and the Moroccan sun drops behind the horizon.

Finally, if you just want to chill, drop into the Hash Point Cafe where you can watch the Atlantic waves break over the rocks with a fragrant Tagine, some freshly caught fish, or ” if you´re feeling less adventurous ” one of the Cafe´s famous bacon double cheeseburgers. (There´s also a wealth of surf gear available for rent in the Cafe, and the manager Rachid is always happy to talk surf, food and local culture).


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.
