THE STORY OF SIDI KAOUKI SURFSTATION
The Sidi Kaouki Surf Station story begins in 1998, when Felix (now owner of the Surf Station) first visited the tiny, rural, Berber town of Sidi Kaouki. Back when Felix first arrived there was no road, and no surf station, but he was blown away by the quality of the surf, the wind and the laidback lifestyle.
On a return trip, seven years later, Felix decided to turn his love of this small town into a Surf Station so that he and his guests could have the opportunity to windsurf in the beautiful conditions every day. After a lot of hard work and after signing a lot of paperwork the station came to life.
The Station, by surfers for surfers, began to take form. Windsurfing during the day, and cooking up burgers behind the bar in the evening, The Station began to build up its reputation as a laid back, fun place to hang out after a great day in the water. Soon, it grew into a place for all kinds of watersports, expanding into surfing, kitesurfing and SUP. From the very start Sidi Kaouki Surf Station has had great cooperative relationships with Starboard and Hot Sails Maui so that the centre could have the best possible equipment for all its visitors.
Now, 10 years later, Sidi Kaouki Surf Station maintains its laid back attitude and continues to be a meeting place for water enthusiasts from around the world. The Station now rents out a huge collection of gear for surfing, kiting, windsurfing and SUP and welcomes guests of all skill levels and all ages. We are now able to provide first class lessons with our trained, on-site instructors and in total we have a team of eight dedicated staff members, ready to help you have the full Sidi Kaouki experience.
And what about the burgers? These days our restaurant upstairs boasts a full menu of delicious, high quality food seven days a week inside our beautiful building that is fully decorated from top to bottom with inspiration drawn from African and surfer culture.
