Feel like breaking up the long, harsh winter with a sunny surf break to warmer waters? Animal Surf Academy has set up camp in Morocco, just north of Agadir in a traditional villa, a stone’s throw from world-class reefs, beach breaks – and the world-renowned Anka point.

Trips are open to virgin waveriders and surf divas alike and BSA-approved instructors are on-hand to get you riding at the next level. If you’re craving testosterone-free waters, an all-girl camp is planned for mid-Feb when Animal surf pros Alan Stokes, Mitch Corbett and Nicola Bunt will be coaching.

Prices start at £255/378 euros per person for catered accommodation and transfers, but not flights. Call the ASA crew on 0870 2422856 or visit www.animalsurfacademy.com.
