Covid vacination proof for non-Moroccans
Non-Moroccan residents usually have a vaccination certificate/passport from their home country.
This is often digital. It can currently not be read / scanned by the Moroccan authorities.
So we advise you to bring as much proof as possible that you have been vaccinated (both digitally and on paper)
There is no restriction whatsoever for vaccinated persons to enter and move about in Morocco.
The rules for unvaccinated people change regularly.
Contact us to get latest rules about this.
At what time can we check in/check out?
Check in is possible from 14.00 o' clock.
The Boardx house doesn’t have a hotel lobby that is open 24/7. After booking we ask to send your estimated time off arrival at kristof@boardxhouse. Like that our housekeeper will be at the house when you arrive.
If you have a delay and you will arrive later then the estimated time we advise to send text/phonecall to our housekeeper. Like that he knows you are on the way and he will be there at your arrival for the checkin. You will receive his number after booking.
If we don’t receive answer on this, there is a chance there won’t be anyone at the house when you arrive
Check out is at 11.00 o' clock.

Can we get surf lessons?
We offer surf lessons in cooperation with the local surf school.
Price is 20 euros / lesson from 1.45 hours.
Board and wetsuit are included in the price and can be used throughout the day (so also before and after class). It is best to let us you want to take surf lessons before arrival. This way we inform the surf school that you are coming and they can already plan this in advance.
Which wetsuit do I need?
In summer you can surf in board shorts,but when the wind picks up, a shorty wetsuit can be a better choice.
From April to september, shorty wetsuit or 2/2 suit is usually sufficient during the day.
In winter months (October to February) we advise a 3/2 wetsuit for most weahter conditions.
For Surfers who are often cold, we recommend a 4/3 wetsuit for sunrise / sunset sessions. After sunrise a 4/3 will be to hot for most surfers and a 3/2 suit will be sufficient.
