Maldives is known for its warm and clear water surf perfection.
Every surfer has to see this place, many come every year.
If you are the type of person that grew up looking at surf magazines with double page photo spreads of perfect point breaks wrapping around empty tropical islands, then start packing your board bags – the Maldives are beckoning. You see visitors from around the globe make the pilgrimage to the Maldives for a week of surfing every year.
The North Male Atoll contains the most popular surf breaks of the Maldives. It probably also offers the most consistent spots especially during the summer months June and July, but actually from early April to late October. All of the spots are facing to the east or south east and are a well protected from predominant south westerly winds. The breaks of North Male Atoll are perfectly shaped and offer highest wave quality, pick up a lot of swell and have proven to be quite consistent.

A long and perfect left. When it’s 2-4 feet it’s a nice, multiple sections wall, that seems to go on and on. When it’s big, the inside section is a heavy barrel that is make or break.

Breaks off the local island Thulusdhoo. In a good solid S-S/SW groundswell, Cokes can have some of the biggest barrels in the Maldives. A shallow, powerful right, that gets progressively shallower on the inside. Experienced Surfers only.

Breaks off Club Med Kani Resort and is probably the most user friendly wave in North Male Atoll. The outside section is also very good for long boarders, but the inside section can get fast, hollow and sometimes quite fickle, especially when it’s bigger.

A fun right hander that has many different sections, Sultans is one on the most consistent waves in North-Male Atoll. At 2-4 feet Sultans is very mellow and a great introduction to surfing over reef with long playful walls and also some barrel sections. As is gets bigger the inside section can produce some big heavy barrels.

One of the best lefts in the Maldives, breaks off the same island as Sultans, however it’s very fickle needing light winds and no current to produce a long wrapping left that actually increases in size as you go down the line. A ‘must surf’ wave if we see it breaking.
Soft, tropical J-Bay is how Jails is sometimes described, breaking off the local island Himmafushi. When it’s on, it’s a long perfect, multiple section right that has to be surfed to be believed! Even when it’s not lining up perfectly, it’s still a real good wave with barrel sections and super nice long and speedy walls for big carves.
