Spots 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.
"Spot 01" Righthander
which needs large easterly swell but very well protected from southerly winds.
"Spot 02" Left+Righthander
Left: Very fast and hollow, sometimes closing out, well protected from westerly to northerly winds.
Right: works only in large swells. Fun Wave, Longboarders and shortboarders will have a good time.
"Spot 03" Righthander
Fast and shallow take off sectiont, barelling, spitting, perfect wave. With soft ending.
"Spot 04" Lefthander
Fun clean wave playground. When big: perfect lefthander.
"Spot 05" Righthander
First surfed by Callahans 1996 boat trip with Pat O'Connell and Satoshi Sekino, Yin Yang got epic during Oxbow seaplane trip in June 2004. Yin Yang is a long and typical outside -typical reef corner right in a pass. Outside is a mellow wall, often cross shore, with safe rides in deep water. Then, the wave bends in the corner, mush out for a while, then wraps into
one of the most critical sections in the Maldives. Inside section can be long and tubular, guys getting barreled 3 times but it can be fairly heavy too on pretty uneven reef, producing potential intimidating barrels on the first bend.
