About Program

Become a surf instructor under the sun of Morocco! Go surfing and live the surfer's life which is all about tides, swell, and finding the best waves. In these three months of living on the beach, you will take intensive surf lessons 5 times a week to prepare you to become a surf instructor at the end of the course. You can start as a beginner surfer, all you need is a good dose of motivation and passion!

In addition to the surf lessons, you will go on an adventure to discover Morocco. You will go on a hike to the waterfalls of Paradise Valley, you will go sandboarding in the small Sahara, making several surf trips, and a 4-day road trip through the beautiful mountains with the final destination the legendary Legzira. Here you can surf at unique surf spots and we go camping.

At the end of the course, you will show what you have learned in your exam week, and hopefully, you will also go home with your surf instructor certificate!

My gab year experience with the surf instructor course

I can honestly saying that this was one of the best experience I ever had! It really marked my year as a big highlight. It is so fantastic to experience that a group of strangers of different countries and cultures can become a family in 3 months. I got perfectly fit in this 3 months, learned how to surf, explored Morocco, and became a totally new person! I really recommend this gab year to everyone that like to be outdoors, loves the ocean, want to meet other people and is ready for a new adventure that will change your life.

Surf instructor surf course

I did this course when I had a year break on my study in spring. I was so glad I made the decision to do the course! I had not so much surf experience but that was no problem at all. We started at the beginning of surfing and the teachers were very patient with me. We had enough time practicing in the ocean and many times on different surfspots. The surfcamp was good only I found it a little bit intense to share a room with others for 3 months, even though I loved the group of girls! I made fantastic friendships and I found Morocco so extremely beautiful.
The trip was active and sportive and it’s like living in another world for 3 months, just caring about the waves, good weather and nice surf 😁
The organization of the course was good, and Zouhir, Sara and Suzanne were very kind, also the surfinstructors were nothing than nice. The organization was Moroccan style, not everything exactly on time but more go with the flow, so sometimes you need to be patient :-) but I really loved this and loved everything of my time in Morocco!

  • Surf surf surf, even though you don’t have experience
  • Exploring Morocco and its beaches
  • Sportive and active
  • Sharing a room with others for 3 months can be intense
