Surf Haven in Morocco: Spot-M Delivers a Perfect Blend of Waves and Comfort


Embarking on a 7-day surf holiday with Spot-M in Morocco was a decision that far exceeded my expectations. The experience was an artful blend of adrenaline, relaxation, and the warm embrace of authentic Moroccan hospitality.

Nestled perfectly in the Moroccan coastal landscape, Mirleft, a hidden gem nestled along Morocco’s southwestern coastline, is a destination that whispers of untamed beauty and laid-back charm. This coastal town offers a tranquil retreat for those seeking a genuine Moroccan experience. With its dramatic cliffs, pristine beaches, and a captivating blend of Berber and surf cultures, Mirleft is my favourite surf trip and Spot-M were the most amazing team.

The waves lived up to expectations, thanks to the expertise of the local guides, especially Youba and Yassine. Their guidance ensured that both beginners and experienced surfers could revel in the North African swells. Each day on the water was a unique experience, offering a mix of challenges and pure, unbridled fun.

Spot-M’s villa proved to be a great choice for me travelling alone.  I will try staying at the new Spot-M guest house next time with Youba and Ruth  if its not full.

The en-suite rooms, adorned with spacious beds and boasting impeccable showers, offered respite after thrilling surf sessions. With reliable Wi-Fi seamlessly blending modern connectivity with the serenity of the surroundings, and a refreshing pool as the epicenter of relaxation, the villa was a testament to Spot-M’s commitment to quality surf experiences at really good prices which surprised me. Also from a getting around on your feet perspective Its strategic proximity to both the village and prime surf spots ensured an unparalleled blend of convenience and luxury.

Spot-M’s team, from the efficient and friendly organization of Duncan and the friendly guidance of Youba and Yassine, contributed significantly to the overall positive experience. Their dedication to creating a welcoming atmosphere was palpable, fostering a sense of camaraderie among the surfers.

Zara’s culinary skills added an extra layer of delight to the experience. Her traditional Moroccan Berber dishes were a flavorful exploration of local cuisine. The 2 communal meals I opted for were filled with laughter and shared tales with the English guys staying in the other rooms and added a wonderful social element to the evenings.

The seamless pick-up by Spot-M’s driver in Agadir set a positive tone for the entire week. The well-organized logistics allowed us to focus on the surf and the immersive Moroccan experience without unnecessary distractions.

Solo surfing doesn’t mean going it alone. With Spot-M’s team, including friendly guides like Youba and Yassine, you get the right balance of professional support and laid-back camaraderie. They’re there to share a tip or two, celebrate your amazing rides which I was lucky enough to have more than I’ve ever had anywhere else, and make sure you feel part of the surf family.

In summary, Spot-M delivered not only exceptional surf experiences but also an exquisite blend of comfort and adventure. For those seeking the lines of long, warm and often empty waves in an atmosphere of warmth and relaxation, Spot-M offers an unparalleled package. My week with them was an exploration of Moroccan surf culture that will undoubtedly linger in my memory for years to come.
