Explora is a really really great surf school, honestly! I had never been surfing before and within 1 lesson I was up on my board, the surfing tuition really was that effective. Over the course of my holiday I improved steadily each day and I will definitely be heading back to Explora as soon as I can. Aside from the... More

Really friendly team. Got three surf lessons with Momo who is an awesome teacher ! I highly recommend Explora Morocco if you want to learn either surf or kite surf over your stay in Essaouira.

We went to learn how to surf for 2 weeks. Excellent place for white water and then gentle progression to green water surfing. Momo our surf instructor is keen and was great, making it happen for us by giving clear instructions. We can now surf (beginners getting up and turning every time) progressing from 9 foot to 7 foot boards,... More

I planned to go for 5 days kitesurfing in early October. Negative: There was no wind the entire time, except on my last day, and then it was very gusty, so not the perfect conditions for kitesurfing. My kite instructor was good, but not great if I compare to the passion of how Rashid was teaching to surf. Positive: Luckily,... More

A great place to start surfing, windsurfing or kite-surfing or go on day trips. Momo was an excellent teacher and got us all surfing very quickly. The equipment was all in really good condition and everyone working for Explora were nice and friendly. This makes a fantastic place for a family holiday with teenagers and we are already planning to... More

We had 5 days in Essaouria and loved the vibe of the place. We managed to fit in two afternoons of surfing and 2 afternoons of kite surfing lessons. If I was to come back again, I am told the best time to learn kiting is from April to August. From September onwards the waves kick in so it makes... More

We booked a package with Explora from Sweden, including hotel accommodation, lessons, equipment rental and more, and to start with the mail correspondence with Sara was very clear, professional and helpful. When we arrived in Essaouira we were instantly welcomed into the Explora family and the guys at the center assisted us in all possible ways throughout the whole week.... More

Had a great time with these guys. Friendly and easy teaching that got us standing on boards in an hour and riding the waves in 3.

not much has to be said: this school is innovative and young and trying really hard to make kite surfing a great experience, they have new and good material and our kite-surfing teacher Youness was really competent and fun. even though essaouira, with its gusty winds and quite a lot of waves, is not the easiest spot to start learning...

I've spent almost three weeks in Essaouira and most of the time I was hanging out in the Explora surfcamp. Kiting was so much fun (wind almost every day) and the staff is super lovely. The quality of the equipment is very good and all the instructors are certified and professional. The guys do their best to make your kite... More
