I am utterly amazed by the organization of the surf camp I've attended and the Standard Essaouira is the best place to be if you are a surfer and even better if you are going to try to surf the waves for the first time! Younes is the best organizer you can find. We were organizing a dental surf camp... More

This was a perfect week in Morocco. Enjoyed both surfing and kite surfing. Even though we got extremely tired (first time of doing these sports), would love to repeat it. Even though it was January, it was not too cold (around 22 degrees in daytime) Local food, people, environment and everything else was fantastic. The Thank you, Younes!

The Standard Essaouira is definitely the place to contact for an unforgetable trip to Morocco.

I highly recommend The Standard to everyone looking to... More

A perfect way to spend your holiday if you want to get much out of it. Practical accomodation near the beach, great Marocco food, relaxed atmosphere, and super kite/surf-conditions. Younes is the man! (and the other guys at the surfshop gives him good competition..) I will definitely recommend The Standard to my friends in Norway, and I will probably go... More

We spent a great week at The Standard learning surfing. Younes and his team are excellent teachers, incredibly helpful, and fun to hang out with. It's a very relaxed and familiar atmosphere and the hosts really went out of their way to make us feel at home. I'd highly recommend the place.
