We are a surfing holiday specialist based in Tamraght, Agadir, Morocco. We welcome all levels of surfing ability from newbies making their first splash to those more experienced looking for a relaxed surfing escape. We provide great value packages including everything you need for the perfect active escape to the waves, from room and board, travel, lessons and equipment. Our location is the perfect place to surf and the town is awash with like minded holiday makers and locals, all looking to catch their next wave. Ocean Tribe will take you to a number of surf spots to make the most of your time with us and to experience the very best surf Morocco has to offer.

While you're here, if you can tear yourself away from the waves, we also offer a range of day trips and activities. We will organise everything you need so you can make the most of your time in Morocco and really immerse yourself in a wonderful new culture. Visit the bustling local souks or become one with nature at Paradise Valley.

We are truly passionate about what we do and not only on the surfing side but making sure you have the best time during your stay with us. When you join us you are not just joining us for a holiday but joining part of a community, becoming part of something more, our tribe.
