A snippet from our ‘The Maldives On Any Budget’ e-book.
The surf season in the Maldives kicks off from April and runs through to October, as winds are mostly offshore. Many world-class waves are on offer in the Maldives, with the most consistent and larger swells generally arriving from June to October. The Maldives offers tropical water temperatures of around twenty-eight degrees Celsius, making it the ultimate surfer’s playground. The waves in the Maldives aren’t as powerful as those in Indonesia and the Mentawai’s, however with large swells, these waves can definitely become heavy. The breaks of the Maldives are spread over hundreds of kilometers of coral reefs and are organized into a series of island regions:
- The North Male’ Atoll
- South Male’ Atoll
- The Central Atolls
- The Southern Atolls
Here’s a SNEAK ‘peAk’ of my three favourite waves in the maldives:
An exclusive break reserved only for surfers staying at Kandooma Resort. This wave can be considered world class on a good day, often with three different barrel sections.
a fast right hander off Thulusdhoo Island.
a long punchy left hander off Chickens Island.
