Excellent school accommodating all levels. Helpful friendly instructors and staff on both kiting and surfing...Board rental is available and all at very reasonable rates. Explora have taken me from not knowing one end of a surf board to another to a point where I can happily go out on my own and get something from the waves.. I'm very grateful!... More

I've just returned from 10 days in Essaouira and I surfed every day. I had private and group lessons and I can't be more positive about all of the instructors. They are incredibly patient, focussed on safety and on ensuring you enjoy whatever time you have. Imad taught me for the last week and his endless positivity, enthusiasm and patience... More

I was a bit wary of trying surfing as I had visions of being dragged through the surf and then being roughly ejected by the sea - spluttering and half drowned. I loved it and went back for more and more. All of the guys there are very friendly and accommodating and I chose to do a private two hour... More

We signed up for a couple of days to learn how to kite surf in Essaouira with Exploration. The staff are amazing. Nothing too much trouble, really accommodating and perfect English. The second day there was no wind to kite surf so they suggested surfing. Our daughter went with a group and instructor and our son took the board to... More

Everyone was really nice to us. We improve a lot our surfing abilities and had a great time hanging out with Rachid (our explora instructor) and other students of the school. Lo pasamos muy bien y esperamos regresar.

I decided to learn kitesurfing with explora and I would always do it again! Good equipment and very good teachers (Monim was my teacher). It took me 4 days to learn and then I was able to rent my equipment. Thx for this great experience!

I stayed in essaouira for some days after traveling Morocco. I had planned to do some kitesurfing but there was not enough wind during my stay. I thus ended up taking surfing lessons at explora and what a success it was! All the people are very relaxed and English is absolutely no problem. Lessons are well priced. My instructor Momo...
