English (Translate this text in English): Essaouira is the windy city with stats ranging from 25 knots to 35 knots pretty much every day in the summer months, 20 - 30 knots in the winter with pumping waves.

The wind pattern tends to be similar to that of the Canary Islands. The summer trade winds are accelerated by strong thermal action particularly during the spring and early summer when temperatures inland can be very hot. Generally the wind increases throughout the morning and by mid afternoon can often be blowing a solid Force 6 - 7. Between the months of October to April, Atlantic storms produce large swells which offer excellent wave conditions all the way up and down the coast from Oualidia to Agadir. The winds, however, are a little less consistent and predictable in direction although it should usually be possible to either surf or kitesurf on most days during the winter at or within a 25km radius of Essaouira. Heavy tradewinds - esp in summer.

 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The beach itself is a huge 5 km arc that delivers multiple conditions, from flat water to waves. The kite zones are at the downwind end of the bay and a wave masters delight. Small shore break with side cross on from the right, 2 ft about 30 yards out and then into anything from head to mast high, NICE!

Temperatures range between 18 degrees in January to 25 degrees in August.

Wave conditions are especially good on the southern side of the bay in spring and autumn (1 -2 m) and from mid-June to August (0.5 to 1 m).
The further upwind you travel in the bay, the flatter the water, which makes it ideal for racers, too.
