Essaouira is located on the northeast coast of Morocco, offering both flatwater and wave riding possibilities. Paired with the wind, this makes Essaouira a kitesurfers paradise. In Essaouira Bay, the water is flat for about 100m before the waves start to form. The best wave spots in the area are Sidi Kaouki and Moulay Bouzerktoun and we can arrange kitesurf trips for you to these destinations. The mouth of the river in Essaouira also offers great flat water riding when the tide is high so you have many options.

Private kite lessons are the most costly but fastest way to learn and progress. Develop your skills with a 2 hour lesson in Essaouira or Sidi Kaouki. We use bbtalkin headsets for some lessons depending on your level to enable us to communicate easily during your lesson. This enables even faster progression as the instructor can communicate with you at all times.
In Essaouira, the semi-private kite lessons comprise of two customers with one instructor, each with their own equipment. You have the option learn with a friend, your partner or with someone that has the same level as you who we will match you with, allowing you to make a new friend too.

Wonderful experience and persons !
I spent 3 months in Essaouira and met the Surftwins on my very first day for a surflesson in Sidi kaouki. A friend of mine advised me to book with them and I was not disappointed. They are very professional instructors, with a great pedagogy, teaching you much more than surfing : letting go, overcoming, self-confidence...in a very joyful atmosphere !Then they became kind of a family for me as I was stuck in Morocco and I discovered they were such interesting and good persons as well. During the 3 months they showed me wonderful other spots and I also practiced kitesurf. It was amazing. I highly recommend their services !Thank you for everything.
Friendly and reliable
We had a great experience with the surftwins, both are very friendly. They told us about the conditions and hours when to surf. They even came early one morning so we could have a early surf session
