I am just writing to say a big thank you for a fabulous surf trip to the Central Atolls in the Maldives. From the time I arrived in Laamau and boarded the Cobia to the time I departed in Male the crew and surf guide were all very helpful and friendly throughout the trip the service was excellent .The food was also very good we were given three varied meals a day which consisted of fresh fish which was usually caught the same day, pasta, vegetables, rice’s and curries also available were cold lager and soft drinks which were at an extra cost .
We had excellent surf throughout the trip it ranged in size from 2ft to at least 6ft on one occasion the waves themselves consisted of mainly rights which were quite easy to surf the take offs were generally slow ,however the speed increased considerably after take off. During the trip we surfed 6 different spots all spots were reef breaks which were fairly shallow at low tide.
The wildlife and scenery were amazing we saw dolphins and turtles on a daily basis I was even lucky enough on one occasion to actually surf with three dolphins. During the trip we did not see any other surfers until we arrived back in the Male area on reflection I feel privileged to have visited areas that remain unspoilt and undeveloped. I believe that any surfer should do this trip at least once in their life time I would recommend it to anyone who is passionate about surfing and who wants to get away from the cold weather and crowds. I would recommend that anyone going on this trip invests in a pair of reef shoes and take with them loads of factor 50 sun block. What impressed me most was the safety awareness of the surf guide and crew whilst we were surfing. The guide was always watching us in the water also on the occasion that one of our party had to visit the hospital with a minor injury the response was very swift in getting him help it was obvious that this sort of incident had been rehearsed and the crew had knowledge of were to get help quickly . Once again well done to Errant Surf Holidays I will definitely be booking with you again in the future.
