ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS



Essaouira offers beach break waves and a sand bottom. The big bay of Essaouira provides kilometers long waves for you to surf. The waves increase in height the further away from the medina you are. Our surf center is right on the spot where you can start surfing and where the waves are small to medium-sized, which is perfect for surf lessons. Within few kilometers from Essaouira you will find some different adventurous surf spots, let us guide you off the beaten track! 



CAMP CHARACTER



Start the morning with our fresh surfers breakfast. Then head to the beach for a morning surf, maybe topped up with a yoga session, that will freshen your spirit for the rest of the day! After a typical Moroccan lunch in the medina or at one of the laid-back beach clubs you can opt in for another lesson or activity, go surfing on your own or just chill out with a beer or fresh smoothie. In the evening you can catch up with other guests or go out on your own. Have a flavoured dinner full of amazing spices with or without live music, as you like… Enjoy the night at the rooftop terrace with other guests, go for a drink somewhere or just go to bed early to get a proper sleep!



CAMP OPERATOR



Explora is founded by Nasser and Sara. They met each other in Egypt, caught up in Tarifa, lived there for a couple of years and ended up in Essaouira to set up Explora. Their dream was to share their passion for the ocean, to bring people together and to create a 100 % surf vibe for their visitors. The surfy couple have two beautiful kids, Leila (4) and Samir (6). They already know the drill of travelling the world and chasing the wind!

The team is formed of a mixture of Moroccan and European surf dudes and ladies. Every team member is chosen for being kind, patient and open. The entire team is devoted to water sports and fully certified. Explora team members will tell you everything you want to know about kites, surf, surf gear, other sports, the Moroccan culture, secret spots, language and food. Weekly or even daily team members hook up with Explora guests to go out for drinks and dinners. Explora organises a traditional Moroccan dinner for the team and guests every week, usually on Saturdays!
