In the afternoon, the wind increases up to between a Force 6 and 7. About 500m from the centre, to the left of the bay you’ll find a long beach break. Whilst the waves directly in front of the centre are perfect to ride, the waves farther out are great for jumping.
Kitesurf : flat to little waves in the summer, medium waves in the winter
Surf : Surf freaks swear by the wild, mountainous waves.
The Purple Islands (Isle of Mogador), off the bay, are the reason why the waves in the bay of Essaouira are smaller and less dangerous than at other spots. The bay of Essouira is especially suitable for novice and intermediate surfers.
Unimpeded, the winter gales sweep across the flat lowlands. In summer, constant sea winds force temperatures down and bring waves to Morocco's coast. Water temperatures reach a maximum of 18° C. Wind and wave conditions are especially good between May and September. Morocco is a year-round surfing Mecca.
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.
We organise wave excursions to Sidi Kaouki and Moulay. The Rental Equipment can be taken to the Spots! NO EQUIPMENT INSURANCE.
Sidi Kaouki (25 km south of Essaouira) :
A long sandy beach provides ideal conditions for advanced surfers. The shore break is somewhat higher than at Essaouira, but the spot also offers fabulously long waves. You can start directly in many of the waves.
Attention must be paid to low and high tides and the currents.
