LOCATION & GETTING HERE
In general, the Maldives rely on the same swell as Indonesia with the best and most consistent swells coming from April to October. Swell size will likely peak from June to September when south swells from the southern Indian Ocean make their presence known on most of the exposed breaks. This is also the time of the southwest monsoon and many of the spots can see offshore conditions. The waves will normally range from 4-8 feet, with occasionally bigger days.
February and March considered the early part of the season will see fun surf and more stable weather but swells will vary, arriving in the small to medium size range. The same holds true for November when the season is coming to a close.
NORTH MALE ATOLLS
The North Male Atolls have been popular with surfers for quite some time thanks to a variety of spots that stay fairly consistent, especially in the prime summer months when south swells are in abundance. There is an assortment of spots scattered around these idyllic islands ranging from long points to hollow sucking barrels that can accommodate all levels of surfing. Although west to southwest winds are the norm at this time of year many of the breaks in this island reef chain are well protected and will remain clean, while others will be offshore. Crowding can sometimes be an issue because of the relatively easy access of the breaks courtesy of the many boats in this wave-rich zone and due to the resorts that shuttle surfers out to the breaks.
- “Chickens”: Long, peeling left pointbreak that is very fast.
- “Cokes”: More of a big wave spot with a nice barrel on the take-off that doesn’t let up. Likes a mid to incoming tide.
- “Lohi’s”: A lefthander that gets super hollow on a big SE swell.
- “Ninja’s”: Mellow righthander which is perfect for beginners and longboarders.
- “Pasta Point”: The celebrity wave of the Maldives is a really, long tubing left which picks up more swell. Has two challenging sections knows as “Macaroni Bowl” and “Lockjaws”.
- “Sultans”: A first-class righthand point and one of the more consistent waves in the area. Has a nice take-off and a super long wall with a great end section. Will peel for up to 150 yards.
- “Honky’s”: Another long left-hander that jumps in size as it turns and peels down the reef. Plenty of tube sections.
- “Jailbreaks”: Super good righthander which can break up to 300 yards long on the right swell.
At the moment surf charters exploring the Central Atolls have focused on the Meemu, Thaa, and Laamu Atolls, each one offering a variety of waves. All three atolls have great exposure to south swells and there are plenty of reef-pass setups that will often see bigger waves than the more popular North Male Atoll.
Numerous world-class breaks have been discovered in the Central Atolls, mostly in the form of right-handers. The beauty of surfing these island chains is that there are many spots within a short distance of each other and waves that will accommodate every level of surfing. So if you find a reef sucking barrel that looks rather intimidating, you’ll likely find a more welcoming and forgiving wave just around the corner or on the next reef pass.
Naturally, some spots might be more exposed to wind, but the layout of these islands and their accompanying reefs means that many breaks will be protected, ensuring clean conditions. As the only means of access to these atolls is by charter boat, those lucky enough to have ventured there have been reaping the rewards, and with nobody else around. Crowding is not an issue in the Central Atolls!!
Meemu Atoll Surf Spots
- “Veyvah”: easy lefthander with a long wall
- “Mulha Rights/Lefts”: the right is tame and good for beginners and intermediates, while the left is faster and more fickle, only breaking when conditions are just right.
- “Mulha Inside/F1”: a fast barreling righthander with long walls. Tends to want a bigger swell to get going.
- “Mulha Outside/Mushrooms”: a fun long righthander that pulls in more swell.
Thaa Atoll Surf Spots
- “Malik’s”: a fast lefthander with long walls and good barrel sections that work best with a big southeast swell
- “Adonis”: a righthander that has some very nice barrels when the swell jumps up a notch. It can be a very long wave with the right conditions.
- “Outside and Inside Mikados”: a very powerful righthander that can produce some great barrels and will pick up more swell than other spots in the area.
- “Finnimas “: a smoking shallow lefthander with some great barrels
Laamu Atoll Surf Spots
- “Langon Bank”: a righthander that needs a big southeast swell. It tends to be a pit stop for charters boats heading south.
- “Tsunamis Lefts”: has a tendency to close out but can be a fun wave if Tsunamis Rights is too small.
- “Tsunamis Rights”: an excellent wave with the right swell angle offering three super fun sections. Has a sweet barrel on the takeoff, then a fun wall for some turns and another barrel at the end section. Occasionally currents can be a factor at this break.
- “Refugee’s Left”: a heavy left that closes out more often than not.
- “Refugee’s Right”: a challenging wave that is fast and shallow on the drop before it barrels down the reef.
- “Ying Yang”: one of the most consistent spots that love a solid southeast swell. The wave starts out fairly tame with a nice wall before it backs offs for a while and then begins to throw, offering a long inside section that is quite challenging as it produces some incredibly hollow barrels.
Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll Being among the first line of defense against incoming south swells, the Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll (also known as the Huvadhoo Atoll) is generally known to pick up more swell than it neighbors to the north and is more open to variations in swell direction. In a nutshell this means plenty of consistent wave action and some world-class breaks. Due to the abundance of reef passes that are spread throughout this atoll, there are a variety of spots for every level of surfing, be it more forgiving playful waves to grinding hollow shacks. The Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll is said to have the best conditions in March and April just before the southwest monsoon begins and September to November when it is coming to a close. From May to August there can be wind issues on the south-facing spots but that’s when you motor to the east-facing part of the atoll where there is more protection. The east-facing breaks will still have plenty of sizes as this is the peak swell time. While you may encounter other charter boats in the area, most of the time you and your crew will have the spots all to yourselves.
Gaafu Dhaalu Spots
- “Airports”: a fun righthander that likes a solid southwest swell.
- “Beacons”: on a good southwest swell, this break becomes a grinding righthander with a solid barrel.
- “Blue Bowls”: this longish righthander is more like a point and has plenty of open face sections for good turns.
- “Five Islands”: a hard-hitting right-hander with speedy walls.
- “Two Ways”: a right and lefthander that tends to favor the right on bigger swells; an easy workable wall that sits well with intermediates.
- “Love Charms”: a fun lefthander which has a playful wall when the sections link up on a bigger swell.
- “Tiger Stripes”: a racy lefthander with a thumping barrel on the inside section; tends to hold more swell than some of the other spots.
Addu Atoll Any surfer looking at the locale of Addu Atoll would be thinking one thing: surf, and lots of it. As the southernmost atoll, lying just below the equator, Addu Atoll has the best swell exposure in the Maldives. There is south, east and west-facing parts of the atoll. Several expeditions have revealed a good lefthander off the island of Vilingili and a righthander just south of Gan, yet information remains somewhat limited. Unlike the northern atolls where island commuting is done by boat, the Addu Atoll has a road connecting the islands, which makes overland travel possible.
Addu Atoll Surf Spots
- “Airport Lights”: a very fast and heavy righthander with nice barrels breaking over a shallow reef.
- “Vilingili/Madihera”: an on-off lefthander that has the odd good day and can be really fun with a barrel here and there. There are several take-off points but the wave can behave a bit strangely due to the unevenness of the reef.
- “Vilingili Right”: performs well with a small and cleans southwest swell.
- “Mulikede/Kanda Muli Left”: a peaky beach break style wave that is fun on small swells.
- “Hithado/Kottey Right”: a beach break style reef.
- “Gaukendi Bridge Left”: a go-to wave when it’s too small everywhere else.
