African Spirit is a small family business formed in 2007 by husband and wife team Marcus & Sanaa Waters, offering surfing, cookery, touring and yoga breaks and holidays.
The business is supported by a small but loyal team of surf instructors and guides.
Marcus and Sanaa play host throughout each guest/s stay.
Marcus is a keen british surfer of 20+ years and Sanaa is a local with longstanding family connections. Sanaa is also a very experienced Moroccan cook with a flair for teaching.
Marcus and Sanaa provide a real Moroccon experience with Sanaa’s family still living just a few doors up from the African Spirit villa. Marcus has transferred his obsessive knowledge of Cornish surf spots to the local Moroccan beaches, reefs and points, so if there’s a wave, he’ll find it.
Staying with Marcus, Sanaa and the team gives a real sense of feeling part of the local community – African Spirit is firmly rooted in the town and you can’t get to the end of the street without waving to ten people. So whether Marcus is guiding surfers on a trip to find the wave of the day, helping Sanaa give a Moroccan cooking lesson, or guiding visitors around the imperial cities, guests can be sure, above all, they will feel like they are amongst friends.
And don’t forget Tonta, the friendly African Spirit dog who patrols the beach like she owns it!
