Surfing in the Maldives

Maldives main surf season is from May to September. This is when the biggest and most frequent swells occur. It is the SW monsoon season so some periods of inclement weather are possible. March/April offers beautiful weather and fun waves, often less crowded than the main season. October/November is also less crowded with fun waves. February/March is a good time for the Southern Atolls.

We offer charters to North/South Male, Central and Southern atolls.

In general surf in Maldives is suitable for intermediate surfers, but it is also possible to find some sheltered waves for the beginners.
