5. Vibes that Keep You Coming Back

I spent my first time in Morocco in October 2022 at Bluemind Surf and Yoga Tribe, and I immediately fell in love with the country, the people, the good food, and last but not least, the amazing surf. This year, I decided to come back to spend the winter months here. Arriving here by the end of September gives me the chance to slowly get prepared for the winter surf swells I am really looking forward to and improve my surf skills. The super delicious food and the wonderful winter sunset are just the cherry on top. Also, Morocco being so close to Europe makes it the perfect winter escape not too far from home. If you are looking for the perfect winter surf destination, I highly recommend coming to Morocco and Bluemind Surf and Yoga Tribe. You come as a guest but leave as a friend.
