Welcome to surfers paradise

The ultimate wave surfing experience

Surfing and Paddling

During the last decade, surfing in the Maldives has attracted many surfers from all over the world. The same swells hitting Indonesia deliver the goods to the Maldives except that the latitude is a little higher and the SE exposure has less energy.

There are three main surfing areas;

  1. The North and South Male Atoll, the surf season runs from April to October during the South-West Monsoons. The bigger swells run from May to August with 2 to 8 ft waves on offer all season.
  2. Central Atoll standard waves are long and clean with size varying between 2 and 8ft as well. During southern hemisphere winter (April-October), it’s pretty much never flat.
  3. Southern Atolls right at the southern point of the Maldives are best for surf from February to April and from September to November, there are always waves in the area but the winds become very strong at other times of the year.

 

Amazing Waves

The most famous breaks are in North Male Atolls. These long points breaks offer rights and lefts, whether for low intermediates, intermediates or for professional surfers, with waves ranging from 1 to 3 meters. For beginners South Male atoll is better suited

Surf spots can be accessed a number of ways; by surf charter boat, point breaks straight off the resort or by Dhoni transferring surfers from the resorts and camps. Not all surf breaks are accessible from land.

A lot of surfers prefer surf charter boats to access the many different points in the North and South Male’ Atolls. On a boat there are no constraints and surfers can choose among the most famous breaks. But try to insure you surf Cokes, Jailbreaks (Himmafushi), Honky’s, Sultans & Tucky Joes! They are amazing waves!

Surfing at it’s best
