I found Explora before heading to Essouiria and they organised my whole trip for me - accommodation, surfing lessons, yoga and transfers to and from Marrakech.

A local recommended me Explora while eating a delicious Moroccan breakfast in Essaouira. Very happy that he did, because it's a great place to hire gear! Majeed is an awesome guy, very polite, very professional and speaks many languages too. I can highly recommend Explora to everybody out there!

It was me and my friends first surfing experience. The booking system was well organised. Our instructor Momo was great, motivating and positive. We recommend Explora a lot! These guys know what they're doing! Egle and Helerin
