ION CLUB DAKHLA LASSARGA
The Best of Surfing Elements
Location : Dakhla, Morocco
Season : All year round
Opening hours : Daily 10.00am – 7.00pm
Our ION CLUB Lassarga center is located at the Ocean Vagabond surf camp, which is a 20 minute drive from the city of Dakhla, in the very south of Morocco, and situated on the wild and exclusive beach of Lassarga. The center is directly on the spot and offers a breathtaking view of the ocean. From November to March, it is a real paradise for surfers and wave lovers of all water sports activities. A very long and clean wave, accessible to all, will give you a feeling of full satisfaction. There is also the advantage of a walk back along the beach to the peak. As the wind continues to blow during this winter period, you will be able to indulge in the best of watersports thanks to our multi- activity center for surfing, kitesurfing, wingfoil and stand up paddle. For beginners the Lassarga Lagoon is located 10 minutes by 4x4 from the camp, and offers ideal conditions to learn to kite. From April to October the waves disappear little by little in front of the center, and the spot of Lassarga, which is just in front of the bungalows of Océan Vagabond, has flat water and wind which is sometimes stronger and more regular. The ION CLUB center is equipped with DUOTONE, FANATIC and ION equipment.

A WORD FROM THE MANAGER
Not only is the Dakhla Lassarga spot special because of its diversity of water activities and its two completely different seasons on the water, but it is also special because of its team of very professional instructors! ION CLUB Lassarga is a kitesurfing, wingfoil and surfing school. On the other hand, it is possible to rent kites, wingfoil, surf, paddles and some windsurfing equipment.
Lassarga is really a magical place both for its calmness, its unbeatable conditions for board sports enthusiasts, and the supervision of our team ION CLUB. The watersports activity in Dakhla is intense!
best spots FOR KITESURFING AND WINGSURFING
The spot is located on a long sandy beach of about 1.5 km where the North/North-East swell creates a great wave rolling out to the right. On a good day, you can surf for almost a kilometer, from the point in front of your bungalow to the fishing village at the end of the beach.This is almost two minutes of surfing on the Lassarga wave for the best riders, whether surfing, kitesurfing or wingfoiling! In season (October to March) it is one of the best spots in Dakhla and Morocco for surfing. To learn or improve your skills during the spring and summer, wingfoil courses and kitesurfing workshops are organized on the beach of Lassarga.
On the other side of the fishermen’s village, a few kilometers from the camp, another beautiful sandy beach appears. There is shallow water and the wind blows sideshore coming from the left. Perfect for beginners! A great kitesurfing spot to learn the activity. Kitesurfing in Dakhla, one more place to surf safely!
Our ION CLUB Lassarga center is located on the beach in front of the spot, next to the Océan Vagabond restaurant. With an incredible view to the spot, you only have to walk 2 minutes to be in the water. We have everything you need for your surfing holiday – kite, wing, surf, paddle and windsurf equipment (in smaller quantities). There are hammocks and deckchairs to rest in after an idyllic surfing session. In short, the place to be for passionate watersport lovers.
All year round for the wind
From November to March for waves, and from April to October for flat water
The wind in Dakhla is mostly from the North/North-East and offers great conditions for intermediate and experienced kitesurfers and wingfoilers on the OCEAN side.
In the lagoon, the wind usually blows from the left and is side-shore. Ideal for beginners and freestylers.
Kitesurfing, wingsurfing, surfing, and now also wingfoil have become very popular in Morocco, especially in Dakhla.
Just in front of the ION CLUB Lassarga center there is a 1.5 km sandy beach, in front of the point break from which a very nice right wave is running. When the conditions are good, you can surf almost 1km kiting and wingfoiling, from the point break to the fishermen village at the end of the beach. For the less experienced who are not so used to waves, it is quite possible to start and progress in wing and in kite by launching at the end of the wave. For surfers, the return to the peak is usually done on foot, walking along the beach rather than paddling.
From October to March, the surfing season is in full swing. Dakhla Lassarga offers one of the best surfing and riding spots for wave riders, kitesurfers and wingfoilers in this Moroccan region. We are also surrounded by different spots in the North on the Atlantic side of the peninsula.

Like all Moroccan cities, the city of Dakhla has a Souk. Unlike Marrakech, Dakhla’s Souk is not very big, but it is worth the detour. You will find souvenirs that are not easily found elsewhere in Morocco. One of the items you will find in this souk is the Melhfa. This is a light fabric that women in the Sahara use to cover themselves. It will keep you cool on your next visit to the desert.
Animal lovers will not be disappointed in Dakhla, where the ocean and the desert meet. You will observe unique birds and reptiles. It is also possible to go on safari in the desert, and to meet the mammals and other reptiles that inhabit this atypical place.
