Maldives surf trip in February - advice needed« on: August 15 2005 06:08:00 »
A group of us want to charter a boat to go surfing in the Maldives in February 2007.
We think it is best to go to the outer Atolls at this time of year. Is that right and what are our chances of getting any waves?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated especially from those who have actually done this trip and can make any recommendations.

Contact Shaun levings at World Surfaris in Queensland, Australia. Very knowledgable on all aspects of the Maldives. They organise boats to get down to the southern atolls that time of year. Likely you want to head south to the bottom (outer) atolls - much more swell, plus good with the winds for that time of year. The winds around Nth Male might still be under the NE trade influence - onshore. The southern atolls have breaks either side and are thus offshore regardless. JP

Be careful going that early in the season. I've been in early Feb and it was pretty fickle. Got a few good days around double overhead, but everything else was in the 2 foot range...I'll be there at the start of March 2007. Try worldsurfaris.com or surftravel.com.au

World surfaris are the go for Maldives especially southern or outer atols. Try and get on a boat with1 of the johnson brothers if there still guiding over there.
