LOCATION & GETTING HERE
MALDIVES, NORTH ATOLL
Sitting in the Indian Ocean the Maldives are a group of coral islands straddling the equator southwest of India and west of Sri Lanka. There are about 1,200 islands and roughly 200 of those are inhabited. These low lying islands, isolated reefs and sand spits make up part of a larger formation of 26 atolls that formed around the edges of sunken volcanic peaks.
The average size of the islands is only one to two kilometers in area and most are flat with white sandy beaches, crystal clear reefs and deep blue lagoons. They sit just 1.5 meters above sea level, and with the highest point being only 2.4 meters above sea level, the Maldives are considered the flattest country in the world.
There are many places around the globe that surfers would define as paradise and the Maldives is definitely at he top of the list. As a destination for surfing perfect waves over a crystal clear reef in a tropical setting it doesn’t get much better than this.
When Tony Hussein first came upon these islands in 1973 he was thinking the same thing yet the word didn’t get out for another 15 years about how good the Maldives really were. Eventually his discovery made its way through the surfing community and the Maldives were no longer just a destination for diving.
These idyllic tropical islands slowly began seeing a steady influx of surfers and they haven’t stopped coming since. 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 !!
Himmafushi, Located 17 km north of the capital Male the transfer by ferry takes around 45 min is a typical fishing island with about 750 inhabitants, sandy roads and palm trees. You can walk around the island in approx. 40min and watch the locals going after their daily routine.
Rather than staying in isolated and sterile resorts you can find pure nature and interact with local families and experience the fascinating culture of the Maldives and the warm hospitality of the Maldivians. The Maldives as they truly are.
This rare opportunity to discover the real Maldives and local life while surfing world class waves is one of a kind. And finally this is what surfing is about. Not only surfing empty brakes and enjoying warm waters but also learning about new cultures and people.
The Maldives have a warm year round tropical climate and is influenced by two monsoons courtesy of the Indian subcontinent to the north. The temperatures range from 25°C (77°F) to 33°C (90°F) throughout the year and there is an abundance of sunshine in this tropical paradise. The water temperature remains at about 26°C (80°F) all year round.
