- You will be kitted out in top quality wetsuits and boards
- There is a full range of summer wetsuits and an impressive selection of surfboards from foam boards, to long boards, mini-mals, short boards, fish and even a body board
- As the school has many different sized boards in varying thicknesses they will suit any level, short boards are more limited so if you are very advanced check availability before you arrive
- If you are a complete beginner, you can use a board with higher volume and buoyancy during the first few days, switching to a smaller, more manoeuvrable board as you improve

- Morocco, being a developing nation doesn't have the same water regulations which you may be used to in Europe and whilst the best and cleanest surf spots will be chosen each day by the school, they recommend some simple travel tips for staying in Morocco:
- Keep hydrated; your immune system is at its lowest when you're dehydrated so drink plenty of water (provided free throughout the day)
- Taghazout enjoys 330 days of sunshine each year and the African sun is much hotter than what you may be used to so take sun precautions
