Pointbreaks, longboards, watercolour, polaroid cameras, tagines, sunsets .. we have put together a retreat with all of our favourite things at one of our favourite waves in the world! Come and join us for a week long creative surf retreat immersed in the colours and sounds of Morocco.

We have a selection of waves right on our doorstep that are great for all abilities and we can cater to beginner, intermediate and advanced longboarders on this retreat.

For intermediate and advanced surfers our coaching will be focused on longboard techniques, handling the bigger boards in the water, trimming along the wave, playing with movement on the board, understanding the mechanics of cross-stepping and nose-riding.

Beginners will learn the basics of surfing, how to position yourself on the board, catch waves and pop up, and importantly how to stay safe in the water. By the end of the trip we will be concentrating on your paddling, how to catch green waves, and turning.

The morning session each day will be a fully coached session with tuition tailored to your ability and inspired by our daily retreat theme. Most days there will also be the opportunity for a second guided surf session, free surfing with your coaches.

Our creative programme includes watercolour, illustration, polaroid photography, surf photography and mixed media. We will be exploring our local environment and taking trips to the souks, local markets, other villages and the hammam to experience Moroccan life and take our creative inspiration.

Our goal is to learn and experiment with techniques and to enjoy the process of making art. There is no pressure to produce a masterpiece!

Our watercolour, illustration and mixed media sessions are led by Artist and longboarder Kara Sparkman
