Our group lessons are best suited for both absolute beginners and beginner-intermediate level surfers. During the lessons you will learn about ocean currents, types of waves, warmup techniques, how to stand up, and finally, basic turns.
Our private lessons give you one-on-one time with an instructor, where we can identify skills that need improvement. We can focus on green wave riding, paddling techniques, duck-diving, and advanced surfing manoeuvres etc. The choice is yours. Note: These lessons are best suited to beginner-intermediate to advanced surfers.

A word about
ION CLUB Dakhla Lagoon
Dakhla is a small town around 1000 km south of Essaouira, located on a 48 km long and 4 km wide peninsula which stretches into the Atlantic Ocean, creating a huge lagoon. The location of our ION CLUB Windsurf and Kitesurf Center is on the north-eastern coast of that peninsula.
The huge sandy lagoon provides fantastic conditions with constant winds throughout the whole year, flat water and more than enough space. Beginners, professionals and everybody else will find kitesurfing at its best here. As an added bonus the other side of the peninsula offers perfect wave conditions which can be reached within no time by car.
February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October
Wind in Dakhla usually comes from north - northeast, and offers fantastic opportunities for advanced and intermediate windsurfers and kitesurfers.
In the Lagoon side, the wind usually blows sideshore from the left.
We offer trips to various wave spots several times a week:
Point D'or: 15 minutes from the center, sandy entry, sometimes a little wind in the first few meters, then just cruising with wind from the right.
Oum Labbouir: about 30 minutes drive from the center. Here the waves wash up very cleanly on the sandy beach. Chance of rocks in the water when you get closer to the cape.
