Hi Nicola, I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of the London Surfers Meetup. I know the group had an amazing time. The boys, Zak and Rachid, worked incredibly hard and really went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. I really enjoyed the village location of the villa. I loved the little chill out spaces, the food was delicious, the showers were hot and the beds were comfy. What more do you need! The location made it quick and easy to get to lots of different surf spots and some of the spots we surfed with traditional village backdrops will stay in my mind as one of my favourite travel memories. I’ll be bringing a group back later in the year. Thank you again. Adam Bromby

I am the girly-est girl I know & was nervous about my first surfing adventure in Morocco. But as soon as I arrived it was just perfect. The weather was gorgeous, the accommodation was amazing & the food was delicious!! As for the surf itself, Zak is a brilliant teacher with a lot of patience (perfect for putting up with me & Michelle & our screams!). The local knowledge is second to none & so valuable – any questions we had about the rest of our Moroccean adventure were answered easily. Whatever you do this year…you must visit The Spot Morocco!

Hi Nicola, just a note to say thanks to you and Zak for showing us such a good time,and especially for sorting out treatment for my lip. So glad to eat good Moroccan food,both at the villa (my worries about spag bog and chips every night well unfounded!), and out and about with Zak. I’m still dreaming of bessara and avocado juice for breakfast.  Essaouira an extra adventure on top, so tell Zak I’ll put in the paddling yards before next year so I’ll be a bit more up for it! Cheers,  Bevan.

Everyone in our group had a great time. Thank you both for your hospitality and hope to see you again next year!

Dear Nicola (and Zak!), We just wanted to all say a really big thanks for the week we had. It was really good fun and it was great to escape from the cold British winter for a week. I kept reminding myself it was January! Many of my colleagues commented on my tan today so it’s good to have something to show for the time away. The surf was great and it was great to have such easy access to good waves and good tuition. So just a big thanks to you, Zak who looked after us so well. I do hope we’ll return in the not too distant future, perhaps once our surfing has improved further!, Many thanks to you all.

Pete, Tom & Gwyn


Hi Nicola, Thanks again for a wonderful stay, we had so much fun!!! See you again :)

Many thanks for a terrific 10 days of surfing. I’m now properly catching green waves, standing up and turning thanks to your instructors. The accommodation was great and I’ve made a whole load of new friends into the bargain. I’ll be back.

Hi Nicola, I just wanted to write a quick note to say a big thank you to you and Zac for making our stay in Morocco so wonderful. The surfing was great, and Zac’s tuition helped immensely, the food was incredible and I’m now re-installed back at work feeling very refreshed indeed…bar a few pains from my tumble on Saturday!! I would have quite happily stayed another week given the opportunity! Hopefully I’ll be able to come out and visit again soon!

Hi Nic, Just wanted to say a massive thank you again. You and Zak made our week such a special one! We both made it back home, but I nearly went straight back in the plane when they announced -1 degrees…Thanks again, Julie.

Hi Nicola,
I’ve just returned home from my trip to Morocco and just want to say a big thank you for organising such a great day for my Dad and brother in Essaouira. They had such a fantastic day and are now keenly planning their next surf trip. Any chance the Spot are elsewhere in the world as well?! Thanks again , Laura

Hi Nicola, can I take the opportunity to say thanks to Zak for being patient and providing some excellent local knowledge, particularly on the surf spots but also just some great tips on the area itself. Hope to see you again in the early spring time. Cheers, Steve

Hello Zac, I am back to London now, so sad!! Thank you so much for making me join your group, I really felt lucky to have met you and the group! Thanks again for your kindness and your smiley face!



The Spot could not be a more appropriate name for this fantastic place. Everything about it, from the gorgeous surf, friendly atmosphere and endless stream of mint tea was so spot on. I literally can’t wait to go back for my third visit. Joe Sharp

Hi Nic, Now that we’re back in a (cold) UK, I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for a great holiday.  The Spot is the best surf camp we’ve stayed in – the accommodation, food and organisation were all superb.  I’m not sure when we’ll be coming back to Morocco but we’ll definitely come back to your place when we do. Zak in particular was brilliant throughout. He really got Coral’s surfing sorted out and nothing was too much trouble for him.  She’s really going to miss him calling her on to waves now that she’s back here! Take care and enjoy the sun and waves. Graham & Coral Meek

Hey Nicola, Just wanted to thank you and Zak for everything, we had a great time and totally felt in love with Marokko…we will come back for sure! The villa is awesome, such a beautiful place. I’m already checking the flights for the next time, maybe December, so I will contact you …..Thanks so much again! See you soon!

Natalie Fuduric


Thanks to you and Zak for everything – we had a great time and it was a treat to see the Cave working so well and spend some time in Essaouira. Really looking forward to seeing the photos! All the best and we hope to see you again! Andrew and the boys.

Hey Nic and Zak! Just wanted to say that I had a great time with the guys last week and will def be back at some stage, the accommodation, food and surf was fantastic! Thanks again guys!

Hi Nicola, I just wanted to email and let you know that I had an AMAZING time with you and Zak and with the boys in the group and at the Villa…I wouldn’t shut up talking on Sunday telling my husband all about it, and I think he felt a bit jealous! I REALLY want to return, and I find myself drifting off in daydream in front of my computer screen at work…. wishing I’d been out for a morning surf… Such great memories. So thank you a thousand times thank you. It was totes amaze! I REALLY hope to see you guys again sometime not too far off. Thanks again!

Taryn Ferris


I can highly recommend the spot to ppl who want to learn/ improve their surfing. The staff is superb friendly, you re fully taken care of 12 hours a day, classes are small with about 1 teacher for 2 students, they always take you to the best spot of the day and for your skill level. The equipment is also mostly quit new, just make sure you re not given a wetsuit with wholes :) 
I ll join the spot again as soon as i get holiday leave.

The Spot Morocco could not have been more enjoyable. I spent 4 days as a beginner learning to surf with Zak, who is a very encouraging and passionate instructor. He will spend more than enough time with you individually, in order for you to be up and catching those once daunting “green waves”. His patience is amazing and he really does get you motivated to paddle out there and catch those waves, despite how much pain your bady may be in! Nic is very prompt at responding to any query and is a fantastic organiser, and managed to fit me in with a group of other beginner surfers. Both Nic and Zak are very inclusive in the socail aspect of meeting other locals for a drink after a day in the surf and I left feeling like I had made some great friends.

With seven days of sun, hardly any wind, a wonderful villa, lovely Moroccan food and very friendly people, it truly was a fantastic week. Zak takes you down to the right spots (surf or no-surf) and Nic will capture all the good moments with her kickass, big-lens camera. Looking back at the pics, it just feels great again!!!

Hi Nic, Thanks for organising another great Moroccan surf trip – it was great to see you and Zak again and meet Miloud, and the other guests. I really enjoyed visiting the different breaks and will definitely come back to surf  again in future. Hope the great weather and swell stays for rest of season! See you next time :-)

Hi Nicola, Thanks for a great time and the care you took about me. I enjoyed a lot the food, the sun and of course the surfing – I have full batteries now back in the office! Now that summer is around the corner I’ll try to keep surfing in Ireland and Spain. I hope to be able to come back to Morocco sometime soon (maybe next spring) and see you and Zak. Kind regards, Alex.

We had the best time at the spot Morocco! Essaouira is such a nice town and the atmosphere is so laid back. Zak was a great instructor, very helpfull and enthusiastic and took us to beautiful beaches and really helped us to improve our surfing skills! The waves were amazing and the weather was awesome! It was a great adventure and I would recommend it for sure!

    Just got back from my second amazing trip to Morocco with The Spot and could not recommend them enough. Zac and Nic are incredibly dedicated and helpful, always know the best surf spots and places to chill out after a hard day surfing. I’m already looking forward to the next trip…Thanks for the best holiday guys! Alice Wicks

    Can’t recommend a surf holiday with The Spot Morocco highly enough. Perfect autumn getaway: waves, yoga, sunshine and lovely people!

    ZaK and Nic – Just a quick note to thank you very much for a fantastic time in Morocco… Thank you some much for all your generosity and your patience in trying to teach me how to surf!! Thanks again, Ben.

    This was my first time at surfing and after the Spot Morocco’s tuition I can’t wait to go back!

    Zaks knowledge of the best surf spots was invaluable particularly as first time surfers.

    We got to explore other places of interest, meet the locals and feel like a real part of the local surf scene.

    I can’t wait to go back for more!

    I was a novice surfer with little confidence and experience in the waves and have always wanted to learn how to stay up on that surf board! The guys at The Spot Morocco really  helped me become a better surfer and I enjoyed myself so much I went back again four months later! I want to thank Nic and Zak for making my surf Morocco experience so pleasurable and I would recommend The Spot Morocco to anyone wanting to give surfing a go! You guys rock.

    Zak! Thank you so much for everything, it was so much fun here. I’ll definitely wanna come back next year!! As soon as I edited the pictures I’ll send them over to you. Take care, talk to you soon!



    Hey Zak, back in Edinburgh now but I wish I was still in Essaouira! It’s been a blast and thank you for making this a great experience. You and all of your friends are very kind and fun. I hope to go back and learn surfing with you again!



    We had a great time with Zak! He was very positive and attentive to us, talkative and entertaining. It’s a great feeling when you get all the basics and start having real fun! The far away spot is really nice and closed with amazing waves. Hope you guys bring the passion to many beginners like you did to us! Boris
