Why choose Surf Berbere

We have the best reputation around town, built from providing fantastic value for money and really working to show you a great time in the surfing Mecca of Morocco! The camp caters for twenty-five people. We can stretch for larger groups. We are not trying to grow into the biggest surf camp in Morocco, just maintaining our position as the best! Our team has been surfing their whole lives and our local knowledge is second to none. The surf camp is easily the best-located accommodation in Taghazout as it is right on the oceanfront. You only have to look at the picture on the right to see that our Taghazout surf camp is literally on the water’s edge – that photo was taken at high tide when there was a big swell, so don’t worry we are not going to get washed away! We are so close to the water that people have actually complained about the amount of noise the waves are making as they crash against Hash Point. You just have to have a look through our photo gallery to understand why everyone is talking about us. At Surf Berbere we offer the best service, the best location, the best food, and the best surf. With our new web-booking systems; hiring cars, renting apartments and booking out surf lessons through Surf Berbere could not be easier!

Going the extra mile

At Surf Berbere we don’t want to just offer you the standard surfing holiday of wake up, eat, surf the local breaks, eat again, party, sleep, 7 days in a row then fly home. Sure you might be happy with a nice tan and being an alright surfer. We want to get you out of the isolated bubble of a surf camp and experience some of Morocco. We want you to leave Taghazout feeling like you have been on a real “surfari”, and explored the cracks and crevices of the area, got a bit of a feel for the local Berbere culture, and vibes. This is why throughout the week we try to do trips taking you a little further than the average Moroccan surf camp.
We’ll show you the beautiful surfing and fishing village of Immsouane, with its huge crashing Cathedral’s beach break and its long mellow peeling right-hander bay – perfect for beginners. We’ll take you south to Tifnit, a gem of the south Moroccan coastline. Exposed and consistent breaks with lefts and rights, this deserted beach is almost guaranteed to bring you a wave. Then on the flat days, we’ll take you up to the Kasbah and around the Souks.

Working with locals

All our guides and instructors are qualified surf instructors either by the Moroccan Surfing Federation or the French Surfing Federation. In fact this year we have put them through the BSA assessment with Nick Thorn. They are locals who have all grown up surfing the area and thus have years of experience surfing Taghazout. There really is no better place to get local knowledge of surfing in Morocco than right here at Surf Berbere.
Our beginner surf lessons are structured through the week to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their surf camp holiday! The guides and instructors will work with you to ensure you get onto your feet and by the end of the week you’ll be carving up the green waves with no problems. Our resident photographer will be on hand to capture those special moments!
Those with a little more experience but still wanting lessons will work more closely with our instructors. These guys can help with all aspects of surfing be it advice on wave choice, technique training for your duck dive, or help you with the more advanced maneuvers such as floaters or cutbacks.
That is just the guys teaching you to surf, we run girls' weeks where we have specialist BSA qualified “surfer chicks” come out to show you the ropes, and all of our cooks, cleaners and administrative teams come from the local villages of Taghazout, Tamri, Immouzer, and Aourir!

Beach cleanups and Immouran surf association

After three years of effort Surf Berbere along with several of the local business have managed to get a regular team together to organize beach cleanups. We still have a huge amount of work to do and continued help from organizations such as Surfrider Foundation and Clean Ocean Project is hugely appreciated.
We are all working towards the Green Waves project to bring together an Association capable of truly tackling this ongoing problem of pollution in the Agadir region and hopefully bring the quality of the water in the region up!
When we arrived in the area the Immouran Surf Association comprised of a shell of a building and about ten very weary local surfers who had battled long and hard to get a site ready for their local kids to surf. After years of wrangling, they eventually won the right to build a surf club down at Devil’s Rock. However, without the means to kit out the surf club with boards and wetsuits, the building lay empty for over two years. We stepped in and donated a truckload of boards and wetsuits and continued donations from Surf Berbere have helped to keep this thriving little charity going for the local kids to keep them surfing!
