The Maldives experiences a similar surf season to Indonesia. Waves can be found from March to November, with the biggest swells likely to occur in June/July/August. During these months the conditions are predominantly off-shore all day and the swell direction is mainly South South East (SSE). The surf generally ranges in size from 2-8 feet, however bigger days have been experienced.
A great variety of reef(point) breaks ranging from quite mellow walls to hollower pits. There is something for everyone.
In the North Male’ atoll, between Male’ and Thulhusdhoo is an assortment of 7 breaks. “Jailbreaks” A long down the line right-hander with 3 distinct sections including a mid barrel section. Rides of up to 300m can be had when it’s lining up.
“Honky’s” is located just North of Himmafushi Island. It is a fast wrapping left at 4-6ft and needs the right swell direction. Worth checking if “Sultans” is crowded. Has a curve section at the end !!!
On the other side of the island you have “Sultans”. An easy right-hand take off which leads you to an intense wrapping section at the end. Breaks 3-8ft.
“Ninjas” breaks off Kani Resort. A mellower right-hander which can be quite fickle. The slowest and easiest wave in the North Male Atoll
Directly opposite Kani Resort you have “Lohis”, a long left-hander that breaks off Hudhuranfushi(Lohifushi) Resort – very consistent wave with barrel sections
25 minutes north of Lohifushi are 2 breaks opposite each other at a reef pass. The right-hander known as “Cokes (Colas)” breaks 3-10ft and is fairly protected from the southerly winds that may affect other breaks such as “Lohis”. This wave has been well photographed and is the hollowest in the North Male atoll. This will test your tube-riding ability.
The left hander known as “Chickens” is probably the fastest wave in the North Male atoll. This wave holds swell size from 3ft to well over 10ft and provides rides up to 500m long.
