Surf Spots

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.

LOCATION & GETTING HERE

Location

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.

 

Southern Atolls

Huvadhoo (also known as Southern Atolls) are located in the most southern section of the Maldives, fewer surf boats and surf charters operate in this area, therefore even the most popular spots in this region are usually less crowded than the Northern Atolls. The Southern Atolls are still the most secluded and idyllic, preserving the beauty of a remote island paradise that comes complete with incredible waves.

 

The 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.
