GET TO KNOW THE BREAKS
South Malé Atoll
The wave has two sections, the outside is a fat, slow and meandering wave perfect for longboarders and even beginners and the inside section is a really nice, fast little right-hander that picks up less swell than most other places but on its day delivers perfect barrels.
North Malé Atoll
The 13 known breaks in the Baa Atoll area are located in 4 different areas, and are only accessible by boat. They all need strong, long range swells with a period over 10 seconds from the SSW, S or SSE to work to their full potential. Although, conditions may vary from break to break, depending on swell size and direction, as well as the strength and direction of the wind these waves work best on mid to high tide.
Central Atoll - Dhaalu
Dhaalu Atoll is located on the western side of the Maldives and picks up south and south west swells. Niyama resort now located at Vodi surf break offers the luxury of a Maldives resort with a world class left out the front. Marouf’s or Kasabu is just across the channel and offers a quality right hand break when wind conditions are light or from the north west.
Central Atoll - Thaa
Thaa Atoll picks up south east swell and may be even bigger than spots on east facing coastlines of other atolls. Due to its secluded location it is almost guaranteed that you will not even spot another surf charter during your stay. The spots are well protected from North to Northwest winds. Conditions may be fickle with other wind directions. This area will be chosen only in very stable weather conditions.
Central Atoll - Laamu
Spots in the Laamu Atoll are spread from the south facing coastline along the east facing up to the north east corner where waves wrap around. As a result you will find spots protected from all wind directions except a rare straight easterly breeze. The first resort on the atoll has now opened and you can now stay at the luxury Six Senses Resort, which is directly across the channel to Ying Yang surf break.
Central Atoll - Meemu

ABOUT THE MALDIVES
The Maldives is made up of 1192 miniscule islands called atolls spread over 800 km from north to south and straddling the equator. Roughly one hour’s flights southwest of Sri Lanka or 4hrs from Singapore, most of the atolls are idyllic, sun-drenched, palm-fringed Gilligan’s Island style set ups. Countless pristine, white, sandy beaches are surrounded by shallow, crystal clear lagoons and vibrant live coral reefs perfect for diving. This is life stripped down to simplicity – bright blue skies, year-round sunshine and fantastic diving and snorkeling in lagoons the temperature of bath water. The Maldives is the smallest Asian country in terms of both population and area; it is the smallest predominantly Muslim nation in the world. With an average ground level of 1.5 metres above sea level, it is the lowest country on the planet. It is also the country with the lowest high point in the world, at 2.3 metres.
Fly into the capital Male’s Velana International Airport (MLE) from all the major airports including Dubai, Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Paris, London, Hong Kong and Sydney. From there it can be a nine to 24 boat ride or a fast seaplane.
