Windsurfing in Morocco

It’s no wonder Essaouria is regarded as “Morocco’s windsurfing capital” – there’s sunshine, gorgeous beaches as far as the eye can see and enough variety of surf to keep riders of all levels pushed to their limits.

Windsurfing is just like sailing except you are part of the rigging, gripping the sail, you have the power in your hands, giving you an experience so much closer to the elements. With windsurfing you really get to feel the wind as your adrenalin kicks in, giving you an exhilarating ride.

With two locations to choose from, Explora Morocco offer windsurfing lessons in Essaouira or Dakhla. Sitting on the powerful waters of the Atlantic Ocean, these spots are ideal all year-round surfing destinations.

Windsurfing lessons & sessions

Windsurfing is the most flexible of our water sports, allowing riders of all levels the chance to experience the thrill of the sea. If you’re new to the sport, our team of fully qualified, multi-lingual instructors will take you through the basics.

For more experienced riders, we offer intermediate and advanced classes designed to help you develop existing and new techniques and manoeuvres.

You will find the swell in Essaouira between January – April and November – December, rolling in from the Atlantic and at its optimum height. During the summer months the winds pick up and you can expect speeds of up to 25-35 knots.

If you want a more relaxing experience, the swell size is at its lowest in the months of July and August so you can enjoy some soothing windsurfing in Essaouira without the large waves.

Dakhla is a prime spot to progress and learn due to the huge flat lagoon bringing contstant wind from April to end October between 20- 30 knots.

For more experienced windsurfers you can also head across the other side of the peninsula to the ocean and the waves.

With all your bookings dealt with in one place, planning your windsurfing holiday couldn’t be easier – we’ll deal with your transfers to and from the airport, your accommodation, lessons and equipment hire so all you’ll have to worry about is completing those jumps and working on your tan. Book your holiday in Essaouira or Dakhla today and discover the favourable conditions of the Atlantic Ocean.
