Surf Star Morocco-Finding Happiness!
A guest review by Fiona Elizabeth Reid
Sat on my Moroccan rug daydreaming about the great week I had in Morocco this June…..take me back to the Surf Star camp terrace, the beach, the waves, good friends and fun times of Tamraght!
A week of yoga, surf, laughter, happiness and adventure.
It’s hard to say what my favourite part of the trip was, but here are a few highlights…..
Surf lessons with the fun and talented instructors whose guidance and knowledge helps you catch that wave that makes you feel on top of the world! Days spent chilling on the beach, floating on surf boards and lots of paddling! ……generally absorbing the surf lifestyle and being a beach bum! Not forgetting Camel rides, Horse rides, Moroccan coffee and bustling with the locals!
The yoga classes with Luice and the fellow yogis were the best! With the sky, sea and mountains surrounding you it is the perfect location to relax and focus. From Vinyasa flows to Ashtanga, stretch, strength and meditation. The yoga gave me strength and ability for a day of surf and in the evening a feeling of total Zen …..Namaste Lucie!
I found a new love of Avocado and date juice….delicious and nutritious, bought from the local Banana village. All the Moroccan food was fantastic at surf camp; Moroccan BBQ, Tagine, CousCous healthy teas and fresh juices. Definitely some recipes to take home.
A day at Paradise Valley in the High Atlas Mountains lived up to its name and was just paradise! Blue pools, cliff jumping, climbing, sunbathing and a little yoga practice!
I couldn’t leave Morocco without experiencing a traditional Moroccan Hammam spa treatment or buying some argan oil. With glowing skin and my body cleansed I felt fresh and rejuvenated.
So all in all ….. a fantastic holiday surrounded by amazing people. The colours, culture and nature of Morocco is something I miss. Surf camp Surf Star is a week to remember. I returned home feeling healthy, Inspired, revitalized and of course a pro surf chic!
