    During this retreat, you will enjoy five days of yoga classes and surf lessons. The surfing lessons are tailored for beginner, intermediate, as well as advanced-level surfers.

    Beginner lessons

    The beginner lessons are aimed at newcomers to surfing, providing a thorough introduction to surfing, from theory all the way through to practice. The lesson will cover all the important first steps to get you going, starting on the beach and then moving into the water, teaching you how to handle the surfboard, safety in the water, how to read the ocean conditions, paddling, and most importantly catching those broken waves. The aim to see you riding your first wave from lesson one!

    Intermediate lessons

    The intermediate lessons are for those who have mastered the white water and are ready to move into the unbroken green waves. These lessons build upon the basics already learned, focusing on paddle technique, control over the board, and increasing the speed and frequency of your take-off when riding those green waves. The surf instructors will also teach you about spotting the best waves and when to catch them.

    Advanced lessons

    The advanced lessons are for experienced surfers looking for some extra guidance in the water. The coaches will surf out with you, helping you spot which waves to go for and improve upon your duck diving and cutbacks. These sessions are a great way to get some additional pointers and tips from the experienced local surf instructors who will take you to some of Taghazout’s famous reefs and point break spots in search of that perfect wave.

    This retreat will be held in the fishing village of Taghazout, Morocco. Taghazout is one of the most beautiful destinations in Morocco. It is known as a surfing Mecca because of its perfect location on the Atlantic coast, its great waves for all levels, its warm weather, and its golden beaches. For these reasons, people keep coming back to Taghazout from all over the world all-year round.

    Banana point

    Banana point is located near the village of Aourir, also called Banana village due to the many banana plantations that grow in the riverbed facing the surf spot. It is a mellow right hander point break that can be full of round stones at the end of the season of the big swells (around May), but is usually covered with sand from August to December. It has got some very long rides to offer and it is a spot that can surprise you with its quality of waves.

    Devil’s rock

    Devil’s rock is one of the most consistent surf spots of the area. In the summer, if you don’t want to drive to Tamri for some fun surf, you can always stay in this very close surf spot. This also means that it can get crowded, and the locals there are not always the friendliest. Just avoid rush hours and you can get some fun surf sessions with just “the emperor of cool” (the dread locked guy who sells necklace). The wave is a beach break, but under the sand there are rocks. When the big swells wash the sandbanks away, you will notice the rocks for a couple of weeks before the sandbanks build up again.

    Panorama point

    A point that ends on a massive beach that goes till the Devil’s rock, this beach is very good for beginners, but in the high tide only, as during the low tide it has a gnarly shore break when the swells gets to a decent size. The point is good for intermediate to advanced surfers when it’s more than five feet. Panorama’s can be very fast and barreling waves when the swell and the winds take the right direction. This is the right spot to train your paddling, as it is usually long rides. There is good vibe on its beach as well where people can soak up some sun and surf the Moroccan waves in a friendly atmosphere.

    Hash point

    Hash point is the surf spot located in the middle of the village of Taghazout. This point break is covered by sand and tends to close faster than it used to according to a legend. This is the spot of the stoners, all those people that wake and bake at the surf hash point rather than at the anchor point in Taghazout. It’s still fun and easy for beginners and intermediate and it has a good reformation while it’s getting to the beach.

    Anchor point

    Anchor point is maybe the most famous Moroccan point break, but is also a very good and consistent one. Start working at three feet and holds up to 15 feet and more, it stays that way in the last 20 years. With three different sections, it has reef and sand bottom along a rocky point. The first section and the second are great for cover-ups and turns, and the last one just gets hollow and fast.


    Mysteries is a very good right hander point. The take-off zone is on a reef that gives its name to the surf spot, the mysterious Mystery reef. It’s another world-class right hander in the golden perimeter between Anchor and Killers. It can reach about 250 meters long and is fairly more accessible than the other points of the area. It can get hollow and fast as well. Good spot for intermediate to advanced surfers.

    Killers point

    Killer point gets its name from the killer whales that come enjoy the calm of this bay during the summer months. The waves start at the north end of the cliff, which makes it a quiet long paddle if the tide is not low enough to walk along the cliff to get to the first sections. Barely and fast, Killers has very good waves and a lot to offer. This is one of the Moroccan reliable spots in terms of perfection and the quality of the waves.


    Boilers is a reef break located just before the light house in Cap Ghir. It’s a reef break where you can see the boiler of a boat at the start of the wave. This is how the spot got its name. The waves are fast and can have barrels sections, especially if it’s more than six feet. The rides can get to 400 meters long, spanning from the boiler to the white house. You should better be fast if you want to connect to the sections there. It’s also famous for its sea urchins. At less than four feet, boilers can be a wave for advanced intermediates to advanced surfers. Don’t venture away if you are not sure about what you are doing.


    Tamri Beach is the most consistent surf spot ever. Whenever it’s flat everywhere, you can always get a fun surf at Tamri especially in the summer time. If the sandbanks are good, Tamri can be confused with beach breaks like Puerto Escondido or some French hollow. It’s a good looking beach break that works on different tides and is very reliable.

    Paradise valley

    Paradise valley is a historic valley and a nature reserve hidden in the mountains of Idaoutanane near Taghazout. Taghart Ankrim is its original name, as the river Ankrim runs through it. In the 60s, hippies came to spend their time by the swimming pools and waterfalls in the area. Popular folklore says that Jimi Hendrix named the valley after spending time there hanging out among the beautiful palm trees, amazing waterfalls, swimming in the stunning natural pools, sunbathing, and jumping off huge rocks. All of these natural wonders can still be enjoyed today. The trip to Paradise valley will give you the chance to discover local life and visit the places where argan oil and local honey are produced. You can also learn some common Berber words and enjoy a delicious traditional meal cooked by a local chef.
