In general the Maldives rely on the same swell as Indonesia with the best and most consistent swells coming from April to October. Water temperature is perfect – 28/ 29 degree Celsius, all year around. 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.

LOCATION & GETTING HERE
There are many places around the globe that surfers would define as paradise and the Maldives is definitely at he top of the list. Perfect waves over a crystal clear reef in a tropical setting it doesn’t get much better than this. While breaks in the northern atolls have gained most of the attention thanks to several resorts and charter boats that offer easier access, the central and southern atolls are where new discoveries are being made. The best way to reach these more distant locales is by charter boat, and while it might take just a bit longer to get there, you and your mates will likely be the only people in the water.
The Maldives have a warm, year round tropical climate and is influenced by two monsoons: the southwest monsoon from May to October, called “halhangu”, will tend to see more wind and rain, while the northeast monsoon, called “iruvai”, from November to April is the dry season with little or no wind. The temperatures range from 25°C (77°F) to 33°C (90°F) throughout the year the water temperature remains at about 26°C (80°F) all year round.
