“Excellent Surf and Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2011

We visited Blue Motion Surf Camp run by Samir in February for an overight stay as a treat to our two teenage boys.

Upon our arrival, Sam whisked the two boys out to sea straight away, which was a pleacsure for my husband and I as the teenagers were so excited about Surfing for their first time.

Fair play to Sam, he has a way with teenagers and soon the boys were getting on with it wihout any problems and with lots of smiles.

We then had one of the best meals we have had in Morocco, Chicken Tajine and safron rice, wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!

Breakfast the following morning was lovely, waking up to the warm sea air over looking the sea was lovelly.

Then back out to sea, to my surprise both boys and my hubby got to stand while surfing (impressed with the fact none have ever surfed before),then returned to the camp to a lovely salad before our departure.

I would definatley recommend Blue Motion especially for families just looking for a bit of fun, it is a loveley remote place overlooking the sea, Samir was excellent with us bear in mind we have never done any surfing before of any kind, the only dissapointing thing was that we had only booked for 1 night, we really felt we could have stayed a few more days.

We will definatley be considering returning next year.

“Blue Motion Surf Camp Morocco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2010

Blue Motion Surf Camp is a unique, remote place in a beautiful landscape that you cannot easily find these days: non-commercial and a truly empty beach. The camp is run by Samir, who has a 13-years experience as a non-stop surfer and who, during the summer, is a surf instructor in a surf camp in Biarritz/France and from October to April in his “secret place”.

The day starts with breakfast, then surfing, then lunch and resting on the terrace with the view of the ocean, then surfing again, tea time, chatting, dinner, games, music, and everything else you feel like…it is all about having fun. If you stay a little longer than a few days, he will take you to other places near Agadir and Taghazout. You will get a very professional surf session even if you are already an advanced surfer. He may be a little pushy sometimes while teaching, but he can easily recognise your limits and individual needs, and you will see the good results very quickly.

An absolutely amazing place!

“Surfing Morocco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2009

Bluemotion Surf Camp is the name of the place I stayed this year in Morocco. Samir, a 10 year vet in the surfing, life guarding, world is the owner and operator. He is an unbelievable host and the place he runs/owns is in an amazing spot. Tafedna doesn't seem to show up on any maps, however, this place exists and it is one of those un-touched zones in the world where surfers and laid back vacationers alike will enjoy. South of Essaouria, North of Agadir. There is accommodation for 7 people so a group of friends would have a blast here. Samir keeps the groups small so you are guaranteed detailed surfing instruction.

Bluemotion will arrange your airport pickup & drop off. All surfers can benefit from Samir's instruction as he has not only taught at the pro level he also teaches beginners and all in between.

Samir can usually be found in the Biarritz/Bidart area during the summer season as he is a well known and highly recommended instructor there. Good to know he comes with a long list of referrals.

For those of you worried about language...it'll be fine as he speaks 6!


Be ready to watch the moon rise, surf a lot, eat well and laugh.

You can reach bluemotion by emailing

Such a fun trip. Amazing.
