This summer jump on board our exclusively chartered boat to the remote surf breaks of the Maldives. Your guide, Chris Thomson is a BSA level 4 surf coach (elite coach), will be on hand to provide you with useful tips for intermediate and advanced surfers. The tour leaves London on the 19th August 2010 and returns on the 1st September 2010. Numbers are limited to 8 surfers to allow for maximum wave count!
The boat trip in the Central Maldives focus around the islands of The Meemu, Thaa and Laamu Atoll, here waves are typically fun right hand point breaks, with a number of left breaking waves. All very fun, and suitable for all surfers. The surf around the Central Maldives is not super powerful, but provides the odd chance of a barrel and long fun walls. The surf is typically shoulder to head high which make these trips ideal for all intermediate and advanced surfers.
The majority of surf breaks on and around Meemu, are East facing, which makes this an ideal spot in the predominate south west winds. The nice thing about the Central Atolls is how close the spots are to each other, so finding good surf is easy. The Thaa Atoll picks up south east swell and may be even bigger than spots on east facing coastlines of other atolls. Due to its secluded location it is almost guaranteed that you will not even spot another surf charter during your stay. The spots are well protected from North to Northwest winds. Conditions may be fickle with other wind directions. This area will be chosen only in very stable weather conditions. Spots in the Laamu Atoll are spread from the south facing coastline along the east facing up to the north east corner where waves wrap around. As a result you will find spots protected from all wind directions except a rare straight easterly breeze.
In between surfs you will have the chance to fish, snorkel or laze in the hammock. We plan on surfing a few times a day at least.
