Loving Surf & Sustainable Surfing
By using top quality surf & kite equipment that is well maintained ensures a long term use not only for a better experience for the guests but also to ensure minimal replacement. Importing surf equipment into Morocco is expensive, and negatively affects the environment with fuel emissions. This is why Loving Surf maintains the best quality possible with proper repairs and training for proper use to avoid damage. This always ensures that every surf and kite rental or lesson is safe but that no plastic or waste pollution enters into the ocean. As mentioned, the Loving Surf shop features upcycled decoration and local art from artists, brands made locally all reducing the emissions and helps to promote the local economy which depends heavily on tourism.
