The Windsurf spot in Essaouira
The ION CLUB Windsurfing Center situated right on the beach and due to the distance from Essaouira town, the wind is blowing pretty steady sideshore from the right. Right in front of the Center, conditions are great for freeriding or some bump and jump freestyle.
A little further down the beach, the waves are building up more and more, creating a fantastic playground for some Windsurf wave sessions.
A word about
ION CLUB Essaouira
Essaouira is a charming coastal town of 78,000 inhabitants, located in the center of Morocco on the Atlantic coast, with endless beaches in and around the town. It has been a favourite destination for windsurfers, kitesurfers and surfers from all over the world for a very long time. The architecture of the old town is strongly influenced by Berber, Portuguese and French culture. The massive appearance of the walls around the old town gives it a mystical sublimity, and it is easy to see why it was once called "Mogador", which translates as "little fortress".
Essaouira is not only an incredible kitesurfing and windsurfing spot, but it also has a huge cultural potential and history.
May, June, July, August, September
The wind blows mainly side shore in Essaouira, and comes from the right when looking at the sea. Some days it is less regular, more gusty, and turns slightly offshore (from the land). Between June and August the thermal wind strengthens the trade winds, so the wind becomes stronger. The kitesurfing, windsurfing and wingfoil center of ION CLUB Essaouira does courses in the morning, and the thrill seekers mainly sail in the afternoon. You will find some of the same atmosphere of Lassarga or Dakhla Lagoon in the south of Morocco, where two other ION CLUBs have settled in the same serene place. Kitesurfing, wingfoil, surfing and windsurfing are sports that are very important in Morocco.
Wave conditions are particularly good in spring and autumn (1 to 2 meters). Due to the strong wind, the waves are slightly smaller between June and August (0.5 to 1 meters). Otherwise, the spot in the bay of Essaouira is choppy/slightly choppy.
