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‚Äôs flights southwest of Sri Lanka or 4hrs from Singapore, most of the atolls are idyllic, sun-drenched, palm-fringed Gilligan‚Äôs 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 ‚Äď 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.

SURF BREAKS - MALE ATOLL

Quarters is an amazing surf spot to coach new surfers because the wave has two sections. The outside part of the wave rolls slowly, its consistent and predictable. So new surfers will find this section manageable and fun. You also have easy markers on the resort buildings to line up with so you will know if you are out of position. The inside section is fun and for more experience surfers because its a faster, punchy right-hander that will offer up some little barrels to keep you stoked. When a solid swell kicks in the outside and inside connect and you can have +500 metre rides. Ripetides is the other popular break for new surfers. This spot again is a slow rolling wave, offers a bigger wave face than Quarters but it is a shorter wave. Both surf spots are ideal to practice you technique, get up your wave count and build you confidence before moving onto the more advance waves in the area. +Intermediates can attack all the other spots that offer fast, slow, long, steep and tube time opportunities.
