If the search for solitude and a culturally rich experience resonates with you, then our Secret Morocco trip hits the jackpot! Off the beaten track, on the edge of the Sahara and away from the well-known surfing hot-spots, we’ve discovered miles of empty beaches and untouched point breaks. Having done the hard yards, we’re keen to show you what bodyboarding in Morocco is truly all about!
For seven days we’ll be exploring the deep South of Morocco, where the world’s biggest desert stops, and some of the world’s best bodyboarding begins. Staying in a modern and spacious villa, we’ll be looked after by a team of local Berbers who not only cook us fresh and delicious traditional food daily but guide us to uncrowded waves, share with us their culture and friends.
For those travelling bodyboarders looking to get out their comfort zone and experience the real Morocco, but not wanting to go it alone. In terms of bodyboarding, it is suitable for all levels and those that want to progress. The abundance of long point breaks means lengthy rides where you can clock up plenty of wave time and practice manoeuvres over and over until you’ve nailed them.

Our Secret Morocco bodyboard week comprises 7 nights’ accommodation a traditional and spacious villa just a short walk from the beach and culturally rich local village.
Throughout the week we will deliver several bodyboarding related workshops that are optional to attend.
We spend a lot of time bodyboarding, but when it is finished for the day, people’s time is then their own to visit the local beach or village with its vibrant market, bazars, cafes and bar or climb up to the old colonial castle to watch the sunset over the Atlantic. Our team of Moroccan guides have grown up in this epic little village, you will experience things that many would never see.
The evenings are for kicking back, hanging out and eating together. Watching a stunning sunset at the beach with some cool drinks, using the swimming pool or catching the latest bodyboarding film on the TV.
Each day we’ll get up early and score perfect, clean waves, tracking down the best breaks along this special desert-backed coastline.
Morocco is of course known as the land of long, right-hand pointbreaks, but explore this epic stretch of beaches, coves and headlands properly and you’ll find it offers so much more…
Put the time in away from the classic, more crowded spots like Boilers and Anchor Point you can find empty, hidden gems, with everything from top-to-bottom A-frame peaks and wedges, to heavy slabs that you’d swear were in the Canaries.
As well as our own secret right-hand point break (which we can practically guarantee will be 100% empty), there’s also a sick left-hand wedge just below the oceanfront balcony of our accommodation – it couldn’t get much better.
When the swell pumps, we have the option of another superb left-hander close by, which offers up super-long rides (and by long we mean properly long – in one of our video analysis sessions we once recorded a customer clock up a 40-second ride at this particular spot!)
It’s fair to say that fun wedges and reeling points will be the recipe for the week, and with plenty of wave options, we can find spots to suit all abilities, regardless of swell and tide.
Make no mistake, the potential for waves here is insane – there are heaps of other virgin breaks in the area, some of which you could be the first to bodyboard.
So whether you’re converting big carves into reverse spins on smooth, steep open-faced walls, or popping big rolls out of bowly local wedges, scoring the best waves Morocco has to offer with just a few like-minded bodyboarders is an experience you’ll never forget.
Our spectacular clifftop accommodation is awesome, featuring beautiful buildings designed in a traditional Moroccan style and finished to a high standard – they’re absolutely amazing and we’re thrilled to be taking you there.
The surf villa and apartment accommodation have been designed with large, airy rooms to help dissipate the heat, and sporting huge balconies – as well as swimming pool access in some properties.
They’re totally secure and well-maintained, with friendly staff on hand to make your stay as hassle-free and comfortable as possible.
Our hosts supply very tasty and nutritional breakfasts, lunches and dinners which have received many rave reviews by our customers. We have a skilled, local, on-site chef who cooks up a storm!
The food is super healthy and is created using fresh local produce with vegetarian options on offer. You will need to pay in cash for your food upon arrival at your accommodation, please see “What Else Do I Need To Budget For?” section for food costs.
SUITABLE FOR RIDERS OF ALL ABILITY
Morocco hoovers up north and westerly Atlantic swell. This means as well as being super reliable, there is constant wedgey fun! This is a trip for riders who fancy some warm water fun, there is plenty to keep even the highest standard bodyboarder amped!
Our coaching team offers daily tuition tailored to your ability with instructors who are in-house qualified and fully insured.
Some have 30 years of surfing experience and 20 years of worldwide travel experience, all trained by multiple-times British National Champion and Team Coach Rob Barber.
The coaching will be tailored towards the individual. Our instructors are on hand with groups in the water, able to give extra tips on the beach, and give detailed feedback during our video/photo analysis sessions.
To aid with this, we send out a pre-event form and chad candidly during our video call about how to get the best out of the trip for you. The emphasis is of course on fun! If you’ve not attended a coaching holiday before, we will have a surf assessment, get to grips with your riding and help plot you a path of improvements. By the time you fly home you’ll be well on your way to reaching that next level; huge improvements are guaranteed!
We aim to have one long session or two shorter sessions each day depending on the swell, tide and wind conditions.
If you already rip and are just looking forward to tackling some super fun, warm water barrels, you’ll love Morocco – a daily routine of wedges and points, sharing waves with like minded bodyboarders, while having the footage documented in desert offshores. Plenty to love!
You will need to arrange your own flights to Al Massira Airport (AGA) in Morocco
We highly recommend that you have a read of our ‘How to book a flight’ blog post to help you organise the best flights for your holiday.
Airport transfers are included in the price, if you can make the times that we have available.
We will cover these with you during your pre trip video call. If you can’t make the times, there will be a charge for the taxi transfer, please see ‘What To Budget For’ for further information on this.
The journey time to our accommodation from the airport is approximately two hours.
FLYING INTO MARRAKECH
Some guests choose to fly into Marrakech before taking a taxi through the Atlas Mountains to our location. This option is also possible, however you are responsible for the cost of your transfer. Again we can cover this during our video call.
ARRIVING AT THE AIRPORT
Once you’ve collected your bags we’ll meet you in the arrivals area. Look out for our representatives, they’ll have a clipboard with “Bodyboard-Holidays” written on it and will be looking out for people with bodyboard bags.
Once everyone has arrived we’ll travel in groups to our accommodation. This will take about 2 hours. You may have a short wait as the rest of the group assembles. It’s worth bringing a book, a Kindle or an iPad and some snacks to keep you going.
We’ll then transport everyone back to the villa where you will have your welcome dinner and be shown to your room. Shortly after arriving, we’ll have a big group welcome meeting to discuss the week and start getting excited for the waves ahead.
Venture off the beaten track with us and you’ll see the true Morocco untouched by tourism. A typical walk through the nearby town will see you greeted with welcoming friendly smiles as locals go about their daily business atop their ancient donkey-drawn carts.
Picture dusty roads freckled with random goats – it’s a near biblical setting. An incredibly traditional place, the local area has basic amenities including small shops and a pharmacy.
Wander through bustling streets and colourful markets, meet friendly locals and watch traditional carts and goats clatter by. Prepare to experience a land that time forgot.
SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS
You’ll find basic amenities including small shops and a pharmacy, but if you’re looking for local produce and unique gifts, visit the weekly local market (Souk), which sells Moroccan jewellery and trinkets.
There are a few restaurants and this is one of the few places in Morocco where you’ll find a bar, making our location even more enjoyably unique.
THINGS TO DO
During your trip, there are opportunities to get your cultural fix too. For some post-bodyboard relaxation, visit a hammam (a steam room that’s like the equivalent of a Turkish bath) to ease your paddling muscles.
Or, if you’re feeling energetic, you could take a sunset hike to the nearby historic fort.
Other activities include:
You can pre-book each activity. Costs depend on the number of participants.
Day trips are entirely optional. We spend most of our days at the beach so you may prefer to relax on the sun terrace and enjoy some downtime when you’re not bodyboarding!
We suggest you budget £4 per day to cover any additional snacks, Moroccan teas, coffees or ice creams during the day.
If you can’t make our airport transfer times you should budget £80 each way. If there is another member of the group travelling at the same time this can be split between you. We can explain how this works during the video call.
Morocco sits on the edge of the Sahara – the largest desert in the world. During the months we visit, you can expect hot and dry weather with warm seas to match.
The waves are consistent year round and the water temperature is pleasant at around 18°c – 20°c. This means a shortie wetsuit will keep you toasty warm, and when the sun is shining there is plenty of opportunity to wear board shorts or a bikini.
At the time of booking, you will receive an email listing all of the kit you need for your bodyboard holiday in Secret Morocco.
What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss, with Chris the trip leader, the required kit and equipment, on the pre-trip video call.
