THE SURF IN THE NORTH ATOLLS OF MALDIVES

PERSON IN WATER! NEW AIRPORT!

It is a bit by chance that I discovered the rights of Kakuni in August 2004 during a trip dhoni, it worked perfectly that day! I came back in April 2005 with Callahan, Van Gysel and the Oakley team (Adriano de Souza, Adam Melling, Royden Bryson ... In short, pros surfing now on the World Tour, WSL in 2015). On this day of 2004 in Kakuni, Royden had to take more than 80 hits in the same day. Review of the trip: great sessions in waves of more than 1.5 / 2m meter in Kakuni and 1 meter on the left of Iboo. We also surfed several other interesting spots in the nearby atolls but the swell was not yet there.

In 2012, I spent 6 days on the island in front of Kakuni and I discovered the left of Kamati, incredibly long! With Kakuni, a real swell magnet, so many other waves to discover in the region and the brand new Dharavandhoo (Baa) airport open in the north, I had to organize trips to these atolls. In 2013, I had 3 groups from May 20th to June 28th, it was one of the strongest monsoon returns I have ever seen: 20 days of SW winds and SW swells without respite. The first two groups scorrated some waves (every day but not always nickel) and found a straight consistent and nice in these conditions, the name of Rasputin. A lot of new waves were identified under different conditions. Then, the 3rd group scora of the perfect surf at Chatty's Left.

Come surf these completely virgin spots!
