Morocco is home to some of the world's most reliable and most exciting windsurf locations. It is also one of the most fascinating and charismatic countries to visit in the world. Situated in the North West tip of the African continent, Morocco has over 3500 kms. of coastline. The excellent winds ensure that vast ranges of windsurfing conditions are always available, and this is why Morocco is sought out by windsurfers. The coastline of Morocco is the perfect location for an unparalleled windsurfing experience, it offers an unforgettable lifetime experience and the ideal mix of having fun and windsurfing epic Moroccan waves. Morocco is a great year-round windsurfing holiday’s destination which offers an attractive combination of sunshine, wind, waves and cultural experience.

Morocco's interior is at its best in spring (March to May), when the country is lush and green, followed by autumn (September to November), when the heat of summer has eased. At other times, do not underestimate the heat in summer and the cold in the winter, particularly in the High Atlas Mountains, where snowcapped peaks persist from November to July.

The resort Essaouira is best from April to October with air temperatures between 25-30 degrees cooled by the constant Atlantic breeze.

The region of Dakhla can be visited all year around but the summer temperatures can be extreme, so the best time to travel here is from September to May.

Best for - Intermediate (10/10), waves (10/10)

The wind in Essaouira predominantly blows cross offshore from the right, directly next to the center, but due to the shape of the beach, downwind it will blow cross shore. It is here where the wind and waves are best, and definitely worth sailing down to.

Between 9 and 11 in the mornings are the best time for beginners, and kids as this is before the wind has picked up, and in turn the sea is a lot calmer. After 11 the wind has really begun blowing and is when the more experienced windsurfers begin to launch. By 12 o'clock the wind has picked up significantly and continues to blow stronger throughout the day, often until sundown, so make sure that a sundown sail is high on your list as Morrocco has views of spectacular sunsets!

The wind in Essaouira blows strongest from July until August, and in these months it is regularly a very, very  high wind destination, yet the wind is reliable all the way from April until November.

In the middle of the western Sahara, a 2 hours flight from Casablanca, is a town called Dakhla situated on a small peninsula bordering the Atlantic coast called Rio de Oro. Stretching South from the small town is a huge lagoon that we think God must have made just for Windsurfers, Wing Foilers, Kitesurfers and! It is one of the most perfect spots for these sports on the planet for windsurfing. This stunning lagoon with an incredible year around wind is a true windsurf paradise.

The wind stats in this area are just astounding so you can sail the whole year in Dakhla (even in December & January, the lowest wind season, it is still 60% reliable)!! The water is perfectly flat with huge shallow areas; just perfect for beginners & improvers; simply the best spot on earth to learn to windsurf (or Wing Foil).

In recent years the accommodation options have taken a big step up, and we can now offer some quite high standard luxury stays. With these new luxury-end properties, it is also possible to travel with a non-windsurfing partner or family (as long as they don’t mind the remote location). We only work with the best hand-picked accommodations in Dakhla; if it is not on our website it is because it does not meet our high standards.
