Sport Services

All of the spots are facing to the east or south east and are a well protected from predominant south westerly winds. The breaks of North Male Atoll are perfectly shaped and offer highest wave quality, pick up a lot of swell and have proven to be quite consistent.

Jails (or Jailbreaks), the famous perfect right-hander is directly in front of our island Himmafushi.
From our Just Surf Villa, it's only a nice 10min walk across the island to the jail at the point, and after getting over some corals a quick paddle out to Jails. Of course, even more convenient with our boat trips, just a quick 10min dhoni ride up to the point, same to Sultans and Honkeys which you can already see from the island across the channel.
Professional photographer service available on surcharge

Packages

SURF PACKAGE :

2 trips per day to North Male surf breaks arranged by our surf guides according to conditions and guest preferences to ensure a maximum of surf time. Non-surfers can book the package as passenger for 50% of the extra charge from room rate to surf package rate.

We operate a traditional Dhoni boat for our daily surf trips to surrounding and northern breaks, which are included in the Surf Package.

Best Period

The SW monsoon generates powerful depressions creating a regular swell in this part of the Indian Ocean, letting good quality lefts unroll.
The best time goes from March to November. March to May and September/October are very propitious for the Huvadhoo’sand Laamu  atoll. For Malé’s atoll, June/July know regular 1.20 m to 2 meters sessions.
From December to March, sometimes uncommon tropical depressions engender some waves, but more windy. In general, waves usually do not go up to 1.50 meters, except in the Southern atolls.Some secret spots to discover in boat trips on the virgin atolls of the archipelagos, most of them are still unexplored…

WINDS & TIDES
N/NE or N/NW propitious winds blow from April to October. The end of spring knows some nice glassy periods. Tides are rather unforeseeable and you have to go between the reefs to reach some spots in low tide.
The boats’ captains know the good handling and will guide you to select the spots. In general, it is more pleasant to surf in high tide.
The water temperature goes around 28°C and its transparency gives you the opportunity to watch the fishes beneath your surfboard between two waves…
Bring two boards, boots for some spots in boat trips, a fixing kit, 2 spare fins and wax.

Spots

- North MALE Atoll –
Malé : Some serious and quality peaks working well in low tide on the capital island. Good to begin with.
Club Med : A wave to try…and for the Club Med fans…
Furana : On Full Moon Island. A long quality right.
Himmafushi : called Jailbreaks – in front of the jail. A solid spot. A fantastic right with several sections.
Honkey’s : A good quality left on Thumburoodoo’s island. The wave is so strongly unrolling around the reef that its second section, The Ledge, is bigger than the take-off.
Sultan’s : Thumburoodoo’s second wave. A powerful wave with several sections. Ideal as far as 2 meters. Access by boat.
Pasta Point : On Kahinuhuraa. Private property of the island – a long and fast left unrolling close to the beach, several meters away from the cottages of the Tari Village Resort.
Ninja’s : On Kanifinolhu – a left rather easy. Cool for longboarders or beginners.
Lohi’s : On Lohifushi – a beautiful left working in heavy swell, sensitive to the winds.
Cola’s : On Thulhusdhoo – works in swells of every size – in SW wind, splendid barrels.
Children’s : Left pointbreak – long and pleasant – Reachable by boat. Works in SE swell and high tide.

Surf Story

Traveller-surfer looking for a dream, open your eyes…
You are sailing on a “Dhoni”, small boat serenely and slowly going off a secret atoll .Sheltered from the sun beneath the tank, you coast ride for two hours, and you can still see this Indian Ocean and its intense colour…

100 meters away, within the thick mist of the early morning, is unrolling a magical left, only for a few friends ! The dream of the lost islet is only for you, away from the rest of the world in this scenery that looks like a postcard. It is breaking the lip of mythic waves. Or go for an “Outer Atoll” Trip  on Huvadhoo, Laamu islands with uncrowded spots.

Discovered in the 80s surfing in the Maldives has evolved. Many hotels have sprouted and the surf is now a real business. However,it’s a magical destination and will continue to attract many surfers, if each of us remind to protect the environment of these beautiful islands.

History

Around 500 B-C – The first inhabitants are coming from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and from Southern India. It would appear that the people of the archipelago are sun-worshippers.
In the 12th century, the conversion to Islam brought by the Arabic traders is a turning-point in the history of the archipelago, from now on ruled by sultanates.
17th century – Maldives become successively a Dutch and then a British protectorate.
In 1953 - The Republic of Maldives is declared, and the sultanate is abolished. If the traditionalism comes out during some demonstrations, like the beginning and the end of the Ramadan, the Divehi modern culture (Maldives’ culture) goes through influences like the Indian movie industry, Asian martial arts, or Western music and fashion.

Geography

The archipelago of Maldives is located about 600 km Southwest of Sri Lanka, in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
It is made of about 1 200 coral islets of which 202 are inhabited and gathered in 26 atolls. The whole is spreading on all sides of the equator, 750 km long and 298 km total.
Only 0.4% of the territory of the Republic of Maldives is composed of firm soil. Some islands are only a long strip of white sand and a few hectares of bush. Others, vaster, have a richer vegetation.
The most important atoll is the Malé one, where the capital, the islands and the hotels and surf spots are organized.
350 km down South, Hubadhoo’s “Outer Atoll” provides regular and constistent waves, within a magnificent and inhabited scenery.
There still are plenty of undiscovered spots or kept secret ones among the hundreds of islets along the coral barriers the best exposed to the swell…
