The Maldives is where you should be to enjoy an unforgettable holiday. One of the joys that this archipelago promises you is the thrill of riding its waves. Here’s what you should know about surfing if you’re planning to try it out while holidaying at one of the Maldives family resorts with your loved ones.
Best Months for Surfing
One can expect perfect surfing conditions around Ghaafu Dhaalu Atoll between March and April. If you want consistent waves, plan to travel to the Maldives from May to October.
The best board size would be the one on which you’d feel the most comfortable. Go for the one that you can manoeuvre well – be it Hypto Krypto or Rhine Gun.
Waves in the Northern Atolls
Northern Atolls lets you access the Ninjas Break. Despite its misleading name, it actually provides smaller waves that are perfect for beginners. For intermediate or advanced learners, Sultan’s Break, the Honky’s Break, and Pasta Point would be ideal.
Waves of the Southern atolls
If you’re a beginner who’s based on the South Male atolls, for example, at a property such as Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort, ‘Antiques Surfing Point’ is where you should go for gentler waves. Advanced surfers can test their mettle on surf breaks such as Five Islands and Love Charms.
