SURF AND FRIENDS
Hey there, are you struggling to catch waves or keep getting “washing machined”? Or maybe you’ve never surfed before and want to give it a go. We offer surf coaching for all abilities - whether you’ve never touched a surfboard or you’re a confident surfer who wants to nail a particular technique. Surf and Friends Lodge has several all-inclusive holidays and retreats you can choose from so you can focus on surfing, exploring the local markets, or chilling by our heated pool if that’s more your style. There are 25 surf spots in the Taghazout area, so there are plenty of spots to choose from no matter the conditions or your surfing ability.
The Surf Lodge
We built Surf and Friends Lodge because we liked surfing in Morocco together. We’ve gone on road trips and surfed nearly every left and right-hander up and down the Moroccan coastline before choosing to settle in Tamraght. We love both long boarding and short boarding - and we know the best surf spots in the Taghazout area. Surf and Friends Lodge has an extensive (surfboard) quiver, 4 rooftops with sea views, comfy sun loungers next to our heated pool, a smoothie bar overlooking Taghazout Bay, yoga lessons, private and shared rooms, and delicious Moroccan food cooked by our local chef.
