Windsurf Instruction

The Starter & Refresher Training (on beginner equipment) is usually held in the morning between 9 and 11 am before the strong wind picks up.

Advanced / Expert Training (on funboards)
From 11 am onwards the wind tends to increase to around a force 5 – perfect conditions for working on your waterstart, carve gybes and other manoeuvres.
Our students are always accompanied by one of our instructors in the rescue boat so that they can benefit as much as possible from the instruction whilst being as safe as possible on the water.
In the afternoon the wind increases up to 6/7 Beaufort. About 500m from the Center, to the left of the bay, you’ll find a long beach break. Whilst the waves directly in front of the Center are perfect to ride, the waves farther out are great for jumping.

Apart from the above group trainings we also offer Semi-Private and Private Training, they are arranged on request!

Daily schedule
9:00 am and 11:00am – Beginner & Refresher Training
11:00 am – Advanced Training
1:00 pm – Expert Training
These times are for an orientation and will be adjusted to the windforecast!

Wind direction:  
During the summer the wind generally blows from the north. Coming side shore from the right, the wind is pretty constant.

A spot that is suited to everyone
With a large shallow sandy area the spot is perfect for beginners. A great advantage of Essouira is a lack of rocks and currents in the bay.

Essaouira, the perfect spot for:
- People looking to learn windsurfing or improve their sailing.
- Any level, whether beginner or expert.
- Wavefreaks, with something to suit most tastes.


Courses are held by an international team of qualified windsurf instructors. They speak French, English, Spanish and Arabic.
