A huge bay with loads of space and constant winds, hitting the Moroccan coast from April through to the end of October – what’s not to like?
The Kite Spot
If you have never been to Morocco before or have preconceived ideas, leave them at home! This is a wonderful country, with an amazing history and architecture, an extremely welcoming friendly culture, and don’t get us started on the food!
But it takes more to be an AlwaysWindy spot and Essaouira has it – reliable wind that blows from April to October over Essaoiura’s huge bay.
If you are interested in joining us in Essaouira but are not yet on an advanced level (such as Next Steps and Kite Clinics), we have an excellent partner school that is run by our long time partners Nasser and Sarah. Their team offers the same high standard of teaching that put Alwayswindy on the map (IKO and VDWS certified) and we cannot recommend them highly enough.
Essaouira is a great spot for all kite levels as it offers a huge bay with side onshore winds. You will always find your space (a busy day might see 20 kites in the air) and above all, reliable wind.
As a bonus, you have excellent surfing conditions for all levels (and we include FREE surfboard rental for all our guests).
If you’ve ever fancied learning to kiteboard then this is the course for you! A certain amount of fitness, along with confidence in the water and an ability to swim is important for you to fully enjoy the learning experience but you can leave the brute strength at home!
The course consists of 12 hours and usually runs for 4 days.
During your group lesson you will be given the VDWS book, the theory lesson and certification. If you are proficient enough, you will also get to make use of the included rental package.
And to finish off this awesome experience, you will join the whole team for a classic Moroccan dinner!
12 hours group lesson (max. 2-4 participants): 330€ incl. equipment
If you had lessons a year ago and haven’t been in the water since and you’re still keen to learn, the intermediate package will give you your confidence back with the kite and see you up and riding and mastering new moves.
The 6 hour semi private lesson includes kite rental for the week plus a real Moroccan dinner with the team.
6 hours semi-private lesson: 375€ incl. equipment
This special package is meant for anybody who would like to get into riding surfboards or with or without straps. It includes a 2 hour private wave introductory lesson, storage for the week, wave board rental and a special Kite Trip plus an authentic dinner with the team.
So you’ve covered the basics? You can ride solidly up wind and do transitions but find yourself a little bored of ‘mowing the lawn’? How about riding toeside? or trying your first jumps? Then it’s time for the Next Steps!
Using radio and video analysis combined with private tuition, you will progress faster than ever before.
The Next Steps course runs over 5 hours and can be spread over your whole stay. This way you have plenty of time to practice your moves after each teaching session.
Places for this advanced course are limited so be sure to book it in advance.
5 hours private tuition with video analysis: 310€
Have you nailed jumping and are looking into learning your first front and backloops? Or tweaking them with a board grab? Maybe the old- school moves are boring you and you are looking at unhooking and handle pass variations? Or unhooking feels a million miles away but some big air, darkslides and board-offs look like something you would like to learn?
These clinics run for 6 days, offers unlimited hours and are tailored around your requirements based on your level of kitesurfing and your realistic goals.
Places for this advanced course are very limited so be sure to book it in advance.
At Essaouira we have a fiull range of the latest North Kiteboarding equipment. There are various rental packages, from board/waveboard/kite only to the whole set.
You can also get your Internationally approved VDWS licence consisting of a theoretical part and a practical level certificate. Kitesurfing licences are already an obligation at many kitespots and a must be presented for equipment hire in most kite centers.
