    Hey!

    We live in the beautiful area of Tamraght/Taghazout, Morocco. I (Sophie) am Welsh and have lived in Morocco since 2013, and my husband, Morad, is Moroccan.

    We started our own surf school and surf camp in January 2014, and our business is growing steadily. We recently built our own retreat villa in Tamraght, where we host guests from all over the world.

    What else ...

    Tamraght is a small, peaceful village with mostly locals living here, and a number of expats. There are some amazing surf spots in the area, cute cafes to relax in and lots of interesting places within reach.

    Paradise Valley is just a 40 minute drive from Tamraght, and there are great bus routes going to Marrakech and Essaouira daily from Agadir (25 mins drive away). Our nearest airport is Agadir Al Massire, which is 40 minutes away.

    We live just a short walk from the beach, so its a great base for sunset walks, morning runs and surfing. There is also a local spa close by, with amazing massages and traditional hammam treatments available, plus a selection of shops, cafes and restaurants.
