I have booked my trip to Essaouira without really thinking twice - it was close, cheap and exotic enough. I though to myself "well, how bad can it be" and I could not be happier I did. Without a doubt, one of the most charming experiences I have had in years of active traveling.
The staff of Surf Essaouira are wonderful, fun and sweet people, who also happened to be very professional in what they are doing.
Me and a friend of mine were accommodated in a "Riad" in Medina with extremely welcoming, helpful and warm staff.
I have chosen "Surf and Yoga" package and I feel for me it was exactly the right fit. Being a complete rookie in surfing, it was a smart decision to dedicate an entire week to trying, as I believe if you really want to learn, couple days wont cut it. Doing yoga after a whole day of fighting with water does wonders and definitely sets you in a right mood for a relaxed evening in the beautiful Medina of Essaouira with its delicious (and super cheap) food, life music and lively markets. I can happily recommend this package to anyone who fancies active vacation - you for certain will feel like a new man afterwards.
The only complain I have - I was stupid to not book a longer trip, so I am already planning my comeback. What can be a better recommendation for the wonderful team of Surf Essaouira than my desire to see and surf with them again and soon as I get another chance.
