ABOUT US
RACHID: FOUNDER, HOST, HEAD SURF INSTRUCTOR
Rachid grew up in Taghazout, learning to ride waves on a body board as a child. When he was 9 his father bought him a short board, fueling Rachid’s passion for surfing. Having surfed all his life, Rachid knows every surf spot and how the weather conditions can affect each point differently.

Rachid spent time in England gaining his Level 2 ISA Surf Coach and Lifeguard qualification, and has been coaching for 10 years. Affectionately, Rachid is known as the Surfing Cupid, inspiring beginners to fall in love with the sport, and intriguing those who already love the sport to experience the best surfing Morocco has to offer.

After working for several surf camps in the area over the last 10 years, Rachid formulated a vision for his own surf camp that included more personal and homely Moroccan touches.

CHRISTIANA: HOST, BOOKING MANAGER
Christiana grew up on the Canadian prairies, with not much water around. Despite this, her father taught her and her brothers to swim in the public pools and nearby lakes, creating a generation of water babies. In 2011, Christiana tried surfing for the first time and after moving to the UK in 2012, has fallen in love with the seaside.

In 2019, Christiana joined the Local Surf Maroc family, bringing not only her management and organization skills, but her love of meeting and connecting with new people and her vision of creating a home away from home for guests.

MOHAMED: HOST, COOK
Mohamed grew up in Taghazout and is the son of a local fisherman. Despite not being a surfer, he has as much salt water in his blood as those who surf. Mohamed is a wealth of knowledge of the local area and its history: any local culture you have an interest in, Mohamed is likely to have the answer.

Besides being a host, Mohamed is cook and all around handyman of the house. If there’s anything you need, he’s the man to talk to.

YOUR ACCOMMODATION
The Tamraght Garden House is a home away from home, situated on a hill overlooking Imouran Bay. The house has an open plan kitchen and dining area where we meet for meals, games and laughter. From the kitchen and dining area you can get to the garden, which is a little shady oasis. You have the option of eating breakfast here, in the dining area, or on the terrace.

Capturing the best of the morning rays, the terrace is the perfect place for your own sunrise yoga practice. The terrace is also our favourite place to sit down for some tea or have a BBQ. The house has a dining and kitchen area, 3 guest rooms, and is equipped with fridge, microwave, gas stove, coffee machine, kettle, wifi, bathroom with shower and toilet, washing machine, towels, basic toiletries, and BBQ.
