The journey begins when we pick you up from the Agadir airport. From then on the trip is all inclusive and all adventure. We travel south through the Sahara Desert searching for great waves. Our guides know all the best spots and what conditions are needed to make them work. There’s a variety of set ups, with everything from slabs, to long point breaks, beach breaks and A frame slabs. Crowds are not a problem along this stretch of coast, we wil have the waves to ourselves.
Each night we will set up camp and enjoy the spectacle of sleeping under the stars in the desert. At the end of the trip we’ll make our way into the town of Dakhla, our finishing point.
Morocco is located in Northern Africa, it’s culture is a diverse mix of Berber, Arabic, French and Spanish influences. Here you will find great music, fantastic food, stunning landscapes and warm hospitality. The trip is focused around southern Morocco and the Northern Sahara Desert – an area that sees few travelers and even fewer surfers. The desert is one of the harshest environments in the world but is also incredibly beautiful.
It is easy for surfers who want to explore other parts of Morocco before or after the trip. Whether it’s exploring Marrakesh’s medina or hiking in the Atlas mountains we can help.
The trip is scheduled during the spring in Morocco. Generally the weather is warm and dry during the day and cooler at night. Day time highs normally reach the mid 20Cs and overnight lows dip down to the mid teens. Wind is generally out of the NE. It very rarely rains.
This rarely visited stretch of coast features every sort of wave a surfer could want, from long cruisey point breaks to heavy barreling slabs, to punchy fun A frames. Spring is the perfect time of year for this trip – the Atlantic is still producing sizable winter swells but the weather is starting to warm up and the wind generally is not as strong.
Our guides know the spots well and work hard to ensure you get the best waves possible. This is a true surf adventure and although the focus is always on the surfing we’ll also spend time sampling the local culture and the delicious food.

Day 2 – 9
Our general direction will take us south, however we’ll be constantly checking the swell and wind forecast to ensure the best surf experience possible.
There are loads of surf spots along this stretch of coast with everything from fast barreling waves and slabs to cruisey long-boarding waves.
At the end of Day 9 we will set up close to the town of Dakhla for one last night of camping under the stars in the desert.
If there’s time we will try for an early morning surf before dropping you off at the airport.
We will be staying in tents for the entire trip.
Each person will be allocated their own tent to sleep in as well as a sleeping bag and sleeping mat.
