Kitesurf holiday Essaouira – Morocco
Kitesurf holidays Essaouira, Morocco’s premier beach resort for all levels. The slightly descending, sandy bottom and a shallow water area near the shore enable a comfortable launch. Other wave spots like Moulay and Sidi Kaouki (20 minutes drive) give variety and make sure that you never get bored! The kitesurf centre organises excursions to these wave spots upon request.
Even if the water temperate (17-20 °C) cannot be compared to the Caribbean, Essaouira offers appealing conditions, ample space and an 80% wind guarantee. The wind blows sideshore from the right. Some days it is a bit gusty and turns slightly offshore at wind speeds of more than 7 Beaufort. Between June and August the thermal enforces the trade wind, creating more challenging conditions for kitesurfers. Downwind of the centre, the wave conditions are particularly great in spring and autumn (1-2 metres). Due to the strong wind, the waves are slightly smaller from mid June to August (0.5-1 metres). Beginners and speed surfers are in good hands further upwind.
The IKO kite school is located on the beach, a short walk from the hotels listed. From there you can rent high quality equipment, or take part in group or private kitesurf lessons, from absolute beginner, to advanced. A safety boat is available in the bay at all times and all instructors are qualified and experienced, all are English speaking.
