LOCATION & GETTING HERE
Huvadhoo and Addu Atoll is definitely less crowded area in Maldives. The location at the bottom of the island’s chain creates a swell magnet and you can find here a dozen of world-class waves that are perfectly exposed.
Kaededhdhoo (Right) – The wave is located on little island with the airport. It is a right-hander that is fun when the swell is big. It’s on the west side of the atoll, so it doesn’t receive as much swell as the other breaks.
Beacons or Barracuda Point (Right) – One of the most powerful and hollow wave in the Maldives. Faces south so it picks up plenty of swell. Needs north-west or north winds. The best time for this wave is early season from February to April. It is pretty short ride with easy takeoff. Best on mid to high tide and can be surfed 2 to 10 feet.
Dhigulaabadhoo (Left) – Across the channel from Beacons. It is a fat ride on the take off but when the swell direction is right, it can link up with another section on the inside, where it produces a bit more speed and power. Needs the same wind as Beacons and can be surfed on all tides. Plenty of marine life around here and sometimes it is possible to see whale sharks here.
Castaways (Right) – Very shallow and tricky spot. It can be surfed only on a high tide. When the swell is over 4 foot, it breaks out the back where a fun wave can be had and you make the choice to keep going through to the inside, where it hits the shallow ledge and gets a bit tricky. Nice little, deserted island in front of the break.
Blue Bowls (Right) – Long wave, not too hollow but it is a lot of fun. Best around 4-6 feet on mid tide. It is well protected if the wind swings around to south/south-west which is common from April till August.
Gani Point (Right) – Another wave which is protected from south/south-west winds. Can get very hollow especially on a mid tide.
Booga Reef (Peak) – A bomb in the middle of the channel between 2 islands. Not too hollow but it is a fun ride. The right is usually good pick, needs west / north-west wind.
Love Charms (Left) – Great wave from take off to the end. Perfect tube on the inside, breaks at 2-10 feet and needs west to northern winds and can be surfed on all tides.
Rockets (Left) – Fun wave, not so hollow but creates nice long walls. Picks up plenty of swell and can be surfed at all tides. Needs west to north winds.
And of course there are more secret spots that only our captain knows 😉
Take international flight to Male International Airport. Then you will have to take domestic flight to meet our boat.
