      I can truly say going to Morocco during my gap year with Surf Paradise Morocco was a life changing experience in so many ways! The program was intense with surfing 5 days a week, but like this I really learned how to surf in just 3 months, and got my certificate to teach Surflessons by myself! Even if you are not sportive or have no experience in surfing, this program makes you ready to it! Also the weekends are full of great activities to see a bit more of Morocco, and it is a truly great country! After a while you becoming family with the team and the participants, and you share this great experience together. Having fun together and being active outdoors in the ocean, and always Sunny weather was something fantastic and I still want to go back to Morocco and it's waves!
