SURF LEVEL

This surf adventure is for intermediate surfers and above. To join this surf trip you must be able to take off confidently and autonomously on shoulder / head-high waves. Almost all the waves break over (sometimes shallow) coral reef.

Discover what's your surf level!

SURF CONDITIONS

The Maldives surf season goes from April to October. Waves are incredibly consistent and while in Summer it may get big and sometimes a bit wet, the shoulder season (October and November) brings good weather and more playful conditions for the intermediate surfer.

Since the Central Atolls take longer to reach, fewer boats operate in the area compared to the more crowded Male Atolls – which translates to fewer surfers in the line-up.

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