From April to October, the Maldives is blessed with some of
the best surfing conditions on earth. Four Seasons Resort
Maldives is located only a few minutes' boat ride from some
of the best surf breaks to be found.
Our top surf sites are:
Sultans (Thamburudhoo Right), located on
an uninhabited island on the eastern reef of North Malé
Atoll. This is one of the most consistent waves of Malé
Atoll, which never closes out, even on the biggest swells.
The takeoff is a steep outside peak called "Phantoms,"
which slingshots into a very long, walled, super-fast section
called the "Pinnacles," over 1 metre (4 feet) high.
All three sections can be thrilling, almost insane tubes.
Rides are 91–137 metres (100–150 yards).
Honky’s (Thamburudhoo Left), adjacent
to "Sultans" on the eastern reef of the North Malé
Atoll. Starts small and increases in size and intensity as
it wraps 90 degrees around the island. A 1.8-metre (6-foot)
wave on the takeoff ends up at least 2.4 metres (8 feet) on
the end section, called "Fred’s Ledge." There
are long rides and tubes through all sections, best on low
tides unless the swell is huge. Best months for this wave
are February, March and April – affected by strong currents
in the southwest monsoon from May to October.
Named after of a poultry farm on the island, Chickens is located
at Villingilimathi Huraa (Kuda Villingili), another uninhabited
island on the eastern reef of North Malé Atoll. A pleasant
thin, peeling, racing lip, when conditions are perfect.
Daily boat rides to surf breaks are available for the competent
surfer. Your experience can also be recorded on video for
An accredited Tropicsurf instructor is available to assist
with all your surfing needs.
Surfing for Beginners
Learn how to surf in informative and fun introductory lagoon
sessions, or take a level 1-certificate course that enables
you to get out amongst the breaks and ride your first wave.
Surfer Improvement Clinic
Whether you're a beginner or a professional, we have a progressive
certificate and instructional programme to help you attain
your surfing goals. The combination of near-perfect waves
with video analysis will assist you with anything from your
"jump-up" to your tube-riding skills.
Water Sports Centre
Complimentary snorkels, masks, fins and non-motorized water
sports such as sailboats, catamarans and state-of-the-art
windsurfing equipment are available at the water sports centre
daily. Motorized water sports equipment is available for a
FOUR SEASON EXPLORER
