Yoga & Surf New Year 2019-20
MOROCCO December 29 – January 5
a different culture
Some days to celebrate life through the practices of yoga and surf in a spectacular place in nature. These vacations are designed to enjoy a delicious time cultivating body and spirit, and your relationship with the Ocean and nature.
Susana will guide you deeply into the practice of yoga. Tarik and his team will make sure you have a beautiful stay and all of us will share with you our love for the Ocean. Everyday will practice together, eat delicious food and we will learn how to surf under the instruction of our dedicated surf teachers– both if you are an experienced surfer or if you are planning to catch your first waves!
We welcome you to the peace and beauty of this special place while we immerse ourselves in these days of yoga and surf together.
Tamraght, in the South of Morocco, is a quiet berber village with a beautiful heart where its people live together with surfers from all over the world in a pacific rhythm with the Ocean.
We are 10 minutes away from the famous surfer center of Taghazout. In word of my friend Clare Beagley, “… every day in this part of the world there is a special moment where the serenity of the Ocean and the incandescent sunset give way to twilight, the sea starts to roar its melodious song and, one by one, the stars begin to cover the sky. It is truly magical”. Everything under the continuous reminder of the Divine through the call to pray of the local mosque.

Rip Surf Morocco
Originally from Agadir, Tarik has always been drawn by the ocean. He knows the numerous great surf spots of the region exceptionally well, making him the ideal surf guide when you need to go off wave hunting. He has participated in numerous national competitions and is ranked among the top 10 best of Moroccan surfers. Today, following the ISA qualification training in France and many collaborations with surf schools, Tarik started his own school to share his experience on his own way. Tarik teaches surfers of all ages, including children above the age of 7.
After giving surf lessons in Morocco for years, I started up Rip Surf Morocco Coaching in 2017 because I realised many people wanted to improve their surfing, but they were having a hard time finding coaching that would actually help with this. So I designed a progressive series of lessons and coaching methods that are very effective for the everyday ‘average’ surfer.
We will stay in a nice house with capacity for 11 people. There are four double rooms with shared bathrooms and a triple room with its own bathroom. The house offers multiple spaces for your enjoyment and relaxation: two salons (one with a fire place), a terrace with a chill-out area to enjoy the amazing african sunsets and a small garden. The house has influences both moroccan and modern, with small details that make it really comfortable and nice. Towels are provided. There is wi-fi in all the house.
Both if you are an experimented surfer or if you are catching your first waves, this is the trip for you.
Usually the day starts with yoga followed by breakfast. Then we go to the beach. There are five days with surf. Our surf instructors will guide you depending on your level so you gain confidence in the ways, learn and enjoy. All material (surf boards and wetsuits) are included. Each day there will be around 4 hours of surf. Daily plans and schedule can change totally depending on tides and conditions.

What you need to bring
- The weather in this area is usually very nice: warm or hot during the day, and cool during the night due to the Atlantic breeze. I Morocco temperature can change a lot between day and night due to the wind, even during summer. Do not forget to bring warm clothes for the night or for the cloudy mornings at the beach.
- Wetsuits are included but you can bring yours. Normally a 3/2 mm is more than enough. In the summer sometimes we surf with a swimming suit and a lycra. In the winter you might want to use a 4/3.
- Sun is always strong here. It is essential to bring a hat, sun glasses and sun screen. Really . Sun here is much stronger than in Europe.
And do not forget the most important to fully enjoy Morocco… an open heart, no hurry and a big smile.
Flights & travel arrangements
You can fly to the airports of Marrakech or Agadir. Most low-cost companies fly to Marrakech or Agadir from most European cities: Ryanair, Easyjet, Vueling… Royal Air Maroc and Iberia are normally a bit more expensive options and fly both to Marrakech and Agadir.
Tamraght is about 3 hours away from Marrakech by car and 45 minutes from Agadir airport. Transport from those airports is not included in the price but we can organise it both individually or in a group.
If your flight arrive to Marrakech late on the arrival day we ask you to get a flight for the day before and spend a night in Marrakech if you want to travel in the group minibus. Marrakech is one of the main touristic destinations in Morocco and has a wide offer of accommodation and entertainment.
Looking forward to welcome you in Morocco!
