Morocco Surf Camp
Stoke’s Morocco Surf Camp includes 6 nights stay in our Surf Palace, three delicious meals per day, daily professional surf lessons with surfboard and wetsuit, Agadir airport pickup, daily transportation to the best waves, excursions to Paradise Valley, the traditional bathhouse and local “Souq” markets, two yoga classes, access to Surf Palace’s jacuzzi hot tub, free WIFI access, live music, workshop games, cinema and surf movies, pool table, football table, Xbox, roulette drinking games, a cooking class and access to our in-house sauna!
Have you ever heard about a Surf Camp in Morocco like this one?
What’s not to like? Year-round sun, world class waves, a local chef whipping up your every meal, sunrises over the Sahara and sunsets over the Atlantic, panoramic ocean views from our ocean front balcony, after surf beers and wacky tobacco in your shisha pipe. And that’s just the half of what Morocco Surf Camp has to offer!
Our package is for everyone, from the seasoned surfer to those who simply want to wet their toes and sun their bellies. Our instructors specialise in teaching absolute beginners how to find their feet, and in taking those who want to step it up a bit to the multitude of world class waves dotted around this peninsula (you can see three of them from our hostel).
This is definitely the Moroccan surf camp for everybody!
Come any day you want and stay for 6 nights, chasing waves and soaking up the culture. Stoke’s shaking up your holidays with our All-Inclusive Morocco Magic Week Specials for Easter.

*Please note that alcohol is not widely sold or drunk in Morocco and is therefore not an inclusion offered at our surfcamp.
A day at the Morocco surf palace
Times are a guide only. Morocco is very chilled out, so things tend to happen when they happen and no one worries too much what time of day it is.
Free Time Activities
Surfing, camel rides, horse rides, jet ski rides, trip to the soukh market in Agadir, exploring the town, swimming, sun baking, hiking, cliff jumping, trip to Paradise Valley, visit the hammam (bathhouse), drinking Moroccan beer and much more.
Night Time Activities
Party nights in Agadir, movie nights, dinners in our favourite restaurants in town, beach BBQ and bonfires, watching the sunset from a surfboard, playing cards on the terrace.
8am - 10am
Head to the beach for 2 hours of surf lessons followed by free surf (time varies depending on conditions and tides)
Lunch on the beach or at the surf house
Excursion time! We head over to Paradise Valley, the Souk or the Hammam, unless we want to chill out at the Surf Palace
Dinner at the house
On the edge of the Sahara
Whilst you can see Morocco from the cities of Southern Spain, once you’re on the ground you’ll realize that you couldn’t be further away… in a wonderful way! This is North Africa baby! This is a place of camels, forts and snake charmers. Where date palms grow out of sandy deserts, and kids run up to your car snotty-faced asking for sweet, sweet candy.
Our surf palace is located in the south of Morocco, in the village of Taghazoute, near the resort city of Agadir. An area so lovely the King of Morocco has his beach palace down there. Here the High Atlas Mountains complete their run down to the North Atlantic Ocean, where goats reside in trees and where fishermen make their nightly drift out to the horizon on seaworthy car tyre inner tubes.
Taghazout is a stereotypical North African fishing village, with a series of narrow lanes winding either side of the one road, Highway 1, which runs through it’s middle and provides the village’s central focal point. Along this road there are a handful of shops, a marketplace and mosque and a few hotels. You can walk through Taghazout along Highway 1 from end to end in about 5 minutes, which is taking into account stopping to pat cats and high five locals.
The Surf Palace
The Stoke Travel Surf Palace is located just off Highway 1. Located near the water’s edge, the palace is populated with sun worshipers and surf rats from every corner of the globe, and they can be found lounging on our balcony watching the sea and checking out the waves. There is a combination of shared and private accommodation, though most nights you’ll pass out on the balcony with the ever-clear North African night sky twinkling away above you.
*A note on the balcony, because it deserves it. This balcony is amazing and is definitely the focal point of the house. This is where we eat, drink tea, share stories, chug beers and smoke hookah. This is the place where you can play a game of chess or kiss a beautiful stranger. We BBQ here, we surf the net, we sloth around and we dry our wetsuits. From this balcony, you can check the surf at three of Morocco’s best breaks, from this balcony the sunset will burn so bright and beautiful your eyes will bleed, from this balcony the sounds of a Moroccan fishing village will drift up and mingle with chatter from all around the world. This is THE balcony.
Meet us there
We offer pick ups for a surcharge from Agadir bus station and airport, however please ensure you give us a minimum of 24 hours of notice in order to arrange this.
Come fly to us…
This is really the only practical way to get here. Because it’s on another continent fool! (Unless you live in Africa, thereby making us the fool). Anyway, to get here grab a flight to either Agadir, which is the airport nearest the surf palace, or to Marrakesh, which is also close-ish and usually cheaper, and with more frequent flights.
If you are flying to Agadir we can fetch you from the airport. Just be sure to send us your flight details.
If you land in Marrakesh you can either prearrange a taxi to take you to the Surf Palace, or make your own way here on the public bus (see details below). In any case we’ll go through all of this with you personally when you book.
Once you land you might need to take the bus
CTM and Supratours run frequent buses from Marrakech to Agadir. The trip takes about three and a half hours and costs a measly 10€. When you land grab a cab and head to the terminal (they leave from different terminals, choose one and tell your cab driver).
There’s no need to book a ticket in advance, and even if you needed to you couldn’t. This is North Africa dudes.
Once in Agadir take a taxi to Taghazout, the surfing village. It’s really small, so just get dropped bang in the centre of the main road. And once in Taghazout, ask for Adventure Keys.
Adventure Keys Address:
Taghazout KM 20

Reviews from Morocco Surf Camp
The staff were very friendly and the surfing lessons and market visit were unforgettable. It was awesome having the taxis paid for already too!
I wouldn’t change a thing, it’s exactly how a surf camp should be run.
It was awesome! Would recommend to anyone wanting to surf!
open-minded, friendly, real, down to Earth people…what else can you ask for?
The surf hostel from Taghazout seems like one that could have come from a vintage surfing film. Staff are friendly and outgoing, and the nice ladies in the hostel even made me separate vegetarian meals!
For example – if travelling to a hot climate, invest in a heavy pair of denim overalls, because there’s no better way to impress new friends and keep your temperament down then by sweating more than a nun at a cucumber stall.
