"Bought surfing lessons at Hoshina. Excellent organization: in the morning we stopped by the hotel (at a convenient time for us), were taken to different spots, the price included a small lunch, which is quite possible to satisfy your hunger. Hocine is a very attentive and friendly guy. It will help in any matter, whether it is organizing guided tours (including a Russian-speaking guide) or simply information about Agadir."
