Welcome to Local Surf Maroc, a family run surf camp and school situated in Tamraght, a village along the western coast of Morocco. The village is an old Berber fishing village, where surfers and fishermen live alongside each other and create a unique vibe that is growing along the coast.
Who We Are
Rachid: Host, Head Surf Instructor
Rachid grew up in Taghazout, learning to ride waves on a body board as a child. When he was 9, his father bought him a short board, fuelling his passion for surfing. Having surfed all his life, Rachid knows every surf spot and how the weather conditions can affect each point differently.
Rachid spent time in England gaining his ISA Surf Coach and Lifeguard qualification, and has been coaching for 10 years. Affectionately, Rachid is known as the Surfing Cupid, inspiring beginners to fall in love with the sport, and intriguing those who already love surfing to experience the best surfing Morocco has to offer.
Mohamed grew up in Taghazout and is the son of a local fisherman. Despite not being a surfer, he has as much salt water in his blood as those who surf. Mohamed is a wealth of knowledge of the local area, shops, and places to eat.
Besides being a host, Mohamed is cook and all around handyman of the house. If there’s anything you need, he’s the man to talk to.
Karim: Surf Instructor
Karim, like his brothers, grew up in Taghazout and next to the ocean. Despite being an apprentice baker, Karim’s passion for surfing brings him back to the ocean. He loves sharing his passion and knowledge for the sport with everyone he meets.
At Local Surf Maroc, we don’t just have a surf camp or host holidays, we love meeting new people and building new relationships. While we are the mainstays at Local Surf Maroc, you never know who you might bump into and what friendships you could end up leaving with. The ocean and surfing is our life and our passion, but above all else, we wish for you to feel at home in our community and at our table.
