Rejuvenate With Some Surf And Yoga In Taghazout
At Surf Berbere we understand that sometimes you need to get away the daily grind and relax.
Our Morocco surf & yoga weeks are all about relaxation, spending time with mother nature, your wellness, transformation and rejuvenation. We’re here to create an experience that inspires peace, serenity, inner strength, calmness and to make sure you have a good time!
How A Normal Day Looks
Every morning we wake up to a delicious buffet of fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, breads and spreads and pancakes down at the cafe (which is about 40 meters to the right of the surf camp). This gets us ready for a full day out surfing.
At about 9.15am, we head up to the surf shop with the surf coaches, organise our boards / wetsuits and load up the cars to head to the beach for the day. Normally we’ll have a couple of hours of coaching in the morning, then eat our packed lunches down at the beach with some more surf coaching in the afternoon for anyone that still has the energy!
Once we get back, we have a some time to relax, shower, have a tea or coffee watching the waves.
Then every evening at around 5:30pm we have a yoga session in time for sunset over Hash Point, one of Morocco’s most beautiful vantage points. Below is a picture of our open air studio that enjoys stunning views over Hash Point.
Our Yoga Teaching Styles
Our yoga instructors, Hayley and Chanti have a wealth of experience of teaching yoga all over the world. Our classes are a mix that has been developed over the years to help improve wellness, but also to help the body recover from a long day of surfing.
Our style of yoga is physically demanding due to the constant movement from one pose to the next (Vinyasa) practiced in its correct sequential order. Our Ashtanga style gradually leads the practitioner to rediscover his or her fullest potential on all levels of human consciousness, physical, psychological, and spiritual.
Combined with the practice of correct breathing (Ujjayi Pranayama), postures (asanas), gazing point (driste) and energetic locks (bandas), we help you gain control of your senses and uncover a deep awareness of yourself.
Beautiful Open Air Studio
We have custom built one of the most spectacular yoga spaces in Morocco. Our yoga studio has amazing ocean views right over Hash Point, out over the Atlantic.
The space is completely open air, so as you relax and lie back, all you see are crystal blue skies and the wispy white clouds.
We are not interested in cramming in hundreds of guests, so we have a limit of no more than 12 people per session in the space ensuring that you will always have our yoga teacher’s attention.
We also have a couple of exercise balls and ropes if you want to do some extra stretching, pre or post a surf session, or just generally need a space to stretch out.
Eat Healthy, Feel Healthy
To embrace a healthy, yogic lifestyle we encourage our guests to eat a predominantly vegetarian and pescatarian diet consisting of pure, simple, natural foods which are all sourced locally.
Three meals, inspired by the Mediterranean and Moroccan diet will be provided daily. We try and source the majority of our produce so that it is seasonal, organic, or locally sourced.
The Agadir region is one of the most fertile in Morocco and all our fruit and vegetables come from local farms, which when prepared with love (and a bit of virgin olive oil or argan oil) result in mouth watering, nutritious and delicious cuisine.
Breakfasts are always served out on the wooden decking of our cafe. Lunches are prepared each morning in the cafe and are taken down to the beaches with us for our day of surfing and are normally a salad or a baguette with some nuts, fruit and snacks (well you are on holiday, a few crisps are ok if you are surfing all day!).
Every evening after the yoga session, we prepare a three course dinner that is served up on the Surf Berbere surf camp roof terrace, arguably one of the most spectacular terraces in Morocco.
During the daytime we provide bottled water. At breakfasts fresh coffee and tea are available. When booking in with us, just let us know of any food allergies or special dietary requirements and we will ensure that you are well catered for.
Fun Day Trips
When the swell is right, we’ll try and get you up to Immesouane, home to one of the longest right hand waves in the world! Immesoaune is a beautiful fishing town with a stunning backdrop of mountains and cliffs. It is an absolute favourite of our guests and we try and get up there as often as we can. We head off nice and early in the morning, have a morning session surfing, then hit up the fish market for locally caught catch of the day. This is then grilled up to be served with some fries and salads. We normally have time for another session in the afternoon before hitting the road back to Taghazout.
Once a week we try and take a group off to Paradise Valley. It is a 45 min drive to the mountains behind Aourir. Once we have parked up, we do a 15 minute walk into the valley where you come across a series of lush rock pools in a beautiful oasis. Normally we have a tajine up there, cooking whilst we are off swimming and doing the rock jumps. Then on the way back we stop off at an argan cooperative where the local ladies show you how the oil and creams are all made!
This is what we’d describe as an entry level souk. Charming, easy going and no hassle, but with all the same moroccan artifacts that we were hoping to find. If you ask the hosts, we can easily organise a group to head in to Agadir for an afternoon of wandering round the souk where you can get your last minute presents for the family back home, or just look longingly at stunning moroccan lamps that will in no way work in your house back in England!
Day Trips & Extras Explained
Day trips, massages, and beach rides are not included in the package, but we are more than happy to organise them for you. The Surf & Yoga Package has 5 days of surfing, this means you'll have a day off and potentially if you have an evening departure flight, another half day to fill at least.
So with this in mind, we have some great extra activities that you can do. We have the paradise valley trip for just 200dhs all in, the Immesouane day trip is 200dhs. If you fancy heading to the Agadir souk, we can organise for you to go in for just 100dhs, for all of these trips we need a minimum of 3 people to be keen to go otherwise we'll need to charge a bit extra. Then other things you can try out are camel riding, horse riding on the beach, or if you are a bit tired or fancy a bit of relaxation we can book you in for a massage (300dhs for an hour), or just come and join a yoga session for just 100dhs in time for sunset.
