I had a three hour beginner kite surfing lesson with Ayoub. He was a fantastic teacher and very patient with me. He was calm and repeated instructions clearly, which helped me build my confidence and understanding of how to control the kite. I really enjoyed the session and I am looking forward to booking another session one day when I return to Essaouira! Thank you 😊

I had lessons from Ayoub, hè was the best. Hè doesn’t overload you with tips and focuspoints, but gives you just the right ammount of tips to focus and work on. Rest of the guys at the shop were great. If I come to Essaouira again I will definitely come here again.
