MORE THAN SURFING

When you're not surfing you'll be walking along deserted sandbanks in the middle of the ocean, fishing, island hopping and BBQing on the beach. Doesn't get much better than this.

THE GIANT WAVES OF NAZARE

During the Autumn and Winter months, the giant waves of Nazaré come to life. Seeing in person these mountains, and the surfers that risk their lives riding them, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If conditions allow for it during the week, we will go on a day trip to Nazaré.

The Horizon II is a type of yacht that you don't see often in the Maldives nowadays. It's a traditionally built wooden yacht that is perfect for a small group of surfers.

With a spacious deck, comfortable cabins and a team of professional locals on hand, the Horizon II is the perfect boat to hunt for waves: its wooden surf dhoni (a smaller boat) has a surf rack and will support you while you're surfing from sunrise to sunset with a local guide.

You can use all snorkelling and fishing gear for free and for every trip a buffet or BBQ (if the weather allows) is included.

You'll find comfortable and air-conditioned Twin and Double bedrooms on the Horizon II, with a view of the Indian Ocean all around you. Every room has a bathroom with hot water.

Surf conditions

The Maldives surf season goes from April to October. Waves are incredibly consistent and while June and July may get a bit wet, it's is hard to complain about some rain when the waves are pumping and the water is 28°C.

Since access to the Southern Atolls is harder (you need an extra charter flight from Malè, included in every package), fewer boats operate in the area – which translates to fewer surfers in the line-up.

Since most surfers heading to the Southern Atolls are usually interested in more advanced waves like Beacons and Tiger Stripes, this often leaves other more intermediate spots (but still world-class) completely empty. This is the perfect recipe for a week scoring incredible waves and improving your surfing skills.

Recommended wetsuit

No wetsuit needed.

Avg. water temperature

28°C/82°F, all year

Crowd factor

Low most of the time, can be medium at the most known spots on a classic day.

Bring with you

Bring boardshorts/bikinis and if you have them a rash guard and surf hat. And plenty of reef-friendly sunscreen.
