Kitesurf Centre In Essaouira

Kitesurf Centre In Essaouira

The kitesurf centre in Essaouira is in the perfect location (moved in 2008), directly on the beach, and only a 10 minute walk from some good hotels and a 30 minute walk to the 'Medina' (city center). Even better, camel rides are offered from just outside the center!

The center and restaurant are protected from the wind, enabling easy set up, and the relaxation of non windsurfing family members.

The restaurant next to the center has a great menu and is ready to revive hungry and thirsty kitesurfers. They also provide sun loungers outside, great for non kitesurfing family member to chill out on throughout the day, or after a long day riding the waves.

The team at our center in Essaouira have recently refurbished the entire center, and have done a truly fantastic job of it!



Essaouria is one of the centers able to provide the ‘Joker Package’ which is offered at centres lucky enough to offer the 4 most popular watersports, Windsurfing, SUP, Kitesurfing, and surfing.

With the Joker you can buy 7 days of rental, along with 5 hours of instruction for only £320, which is amazing value alone! But the real beauty is that you can use your hours for whichever sport you like, mixing and matching day to day, including instruction!

With the Joker you can relax about what the weather chooses to do, as you have a range of sports to cater for all conditions, ensuring you make the absolute most of your precious holiday time.



All courses are available in groups, semi-private, or private. For group and semi private, there is always 1 kite for 2 pupils, and pupils buddy up. This ensures pupils safety and improvement. It's been proven as an effective and safe teaching technique, and generally the most popular.
