Maldives Surf Guide & Surf Information

Highly consistent Indian Ocean South swells make the Maldives one of the planet's most consistent surf zones. Almost every trip offers quality surf every single day. All waves peel mechanically over perfectly contoured, coral reefs without the shallowness and danger found at many other surf destinations. Expect to surf waves peeling so perfectly you'll be in awe at how perfect Mother Nature can be. Waves can be enjoyed by both shortboarders and longboarders.
This is a place you can ride the best waves of your life without fearing for your safety. And if your home surfs are short beach breaks, you'll love the long rides (typically 100 to 300 metres) that allow time to enjoy the magic as well as perfect that next turn.

Maldives Surf Guide - Surfing Spots and Tips

Expect offshore winds most days with equal numbers of lefts and rights typically averaging chest high to once overhead. These warm water waves can be surfed on all tides so you can literally surf all day long.

The surf season coincides with the south-west monsoon and runs from mid February to November when the best swells are generated by winter low pressure systems in the southern Indian Ocean . March and April provide a combination of excellent surfing and weather conditions.

The water is warm enough to swim without a wetsuit, though a light suit is a good idea, for protection from the sun and coral. Booties are essential for picking your way over exposed coral reefs, and a helmet is recommended.

Surfing in the Maldives provides you with two options,
•  either staying in a resort or
             •  booking a live-aboard surfing vacation on a charter cruiser

Resorts provide boats (Dhonis) to transport surfers out beyond the breaks up to three times per day for two hour periods whereas live-aboard offer surfers the chance to surf the reefs for longer periods.

There are principally 2 major surfing areas in the Maldives ,
•  The North Male Atoll (season: April to October)
             •  Outer Atolls (season: February to April, September to November)

Maldives Surf Guide

The North Male Atoll contains the better known breaks such as Lohis, Cokes, Chickens, Sultans, Jailbreaks, Honkys and Ninjas. These breaks offer a mix of rights and lefts for both the recreational and the high performance surfer, averaging 3-8ft and featuring some long point breaks as well as some shallow reefs. The North Male breaks can be accessed either by Manthiri Cruiser or from Lohifushi Island Resort.

The Outer Atolls, approximately 300 miles to the South, contain at least a dozen, potent world class reef breaks that are rarely surfed, and this zone is fickle, with the right winds occurring only in two narrow windows generally from February to April and September to November. This area can only be accessed by means of a well-equipped surf charter vessel like Manthiri. The swells in the Outer Atolls are usually a few feet bigger than the North Male Atoll.
