From Europe to Agadir
You find many direct flights from European destinations to Al Massia Airport. Once arrived at the airport we will bring you to our surf camp. Pick ups and drop offs are included in our packages. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help with planning your trip.

From Marrakesh to Agadir
There are several ways to get from the most famous Moroccan city to the most famous surf mecca:

Bus We recommend 2 bus companies: www.supratours.ma and www.ctm.ma . They offer connections nearly every hour and the 3-4 hours bus ride costs between 120 and 200 Dirham (10-18€) and is thus the cheapest option. You arrive in the centre of Agadir where we pick you up and bring you directly to the Surf Soul House .

Taxi Probably the easiest and fastest way to get from Marrakesh to Tamraght is by taxi. The prices for this 3.5 h drive start from 120€ to 150€. We are happy to book a transport for you and to make sure you don’t get lost.

Rent a Car Another option is to rent a car, which offers you the greatest flexibility starting from 250DH/day. Stop whenever you want, make short side trips and enjoy the advantages of your independence. You can find a lot of offers online and we are glad to help you organising your trip.

Check In / Check Out
You can arrive any day you want. Check In time is after 4 PM but if the room has been cleaned and is ready before 4 PM, you may have access to the room. Otherwise leave your luggages in the reception and drink a relaxing Moroccan tea on the rooftop. Check Out time is at 10 AM, but also depends on your departure time. Don’t hesitate to ask us for flexible check in and check out.

Weather
Winter, from December to February, is very mild, especially during the day, since the maximum temperatures are about 20 °C , while sometimes at night it can be cold, since the minimum temperatures can drop below 5 °C . The rains are rare: sometimes it does not rain for a whole month. We can not exclude, however, some waves of bad weather, with quite abundant rains for a few days.

Spring, from March to mid-June, is very mild or pleasantly warm; when the wind blows from the desert, however, it can be hot. Every now and then, thunderstorms can erupt in March and April, and more rarely in May.

Summer, from mid-June to September, is warm and dry. Generally, the weather is pleasantly warm, but in the evening or in the early morning it can be a bit cool. In addition, at night and in the early morning, fogs and mists due to the cold sea current can form along the coast, but they dissolve in the warmest hours. Sometimes, however, the wind from the desert can bring hot days, around 40 °C and more, during which, however, the humidity decreases.

Autumn is usually pleasantly warm in October, while in November it is very mild, but at night it can start to get cold. In October, the first rare rains can occur, which sometimes may be more abundant than usual.

Surf Season
The best season to surf in Morocco is from September until beginning of May. Especially in December, January, February and March higher swell has to be expected and therefore is the perfect time for more experienced surfer. In September and October, April and May you can find friendly, mid high waves. The summer months are known for small, smoothy waves.
