Chickens: long left hander on the other side of the channel from Coke`s , when the peaks connect , excellent wave , lot of water on the inside
South Male Atoll surf breaks:
It´s good to go here when North Male is too massive to surf or crowded. The waves are around 2 foot smaller but it’s still a very nice atoll and great for snorkeling. These are the surf breaks:
Lucky Joe: perfect left hand reef break that works best on any N wind , fast and hollow.
Two ways: in front of Gulhi , left and right hander
Quarters: in front of the worker island of Anantara , mellow right hander , ideal for less advanced surfers , inside is hollow and shallow
Kandooma right: off limits to boats but very good right hander with small take off point .
Rip Tides: workable right hander close to Guraidhoo local island, good wave!
