 Additional Information

The wave has two sections which usually link up, the outside and... the inside. The beach (and the entire atoll) are private (govt?) property. When the swell gets up and its of a certain direction there is a lot of current running off the point.

Atmosphere

A really quality wave, suffering from the beginnings of being crowded - due to the ease of access from Male and various resorts.

dream come true - many places in the area were packed with boat travellers but honkies was often quite empty.. the inner break tubed nicely but closed out pretty quickly and was better for reall really advanced surfers.. if you dont get out in time you risk being tossed onto a bitchy little reef that looks harmless but totally causes damage to you and your board..

i played it safe and hung out mostly on the wave that came over the channel between the islands.. it was a nice long clean wall that gets bigger in the middle of your ride and basically delivers a whole extra ride..

when you get off your wave turn around quickly and reposition - ur likely to immediately surf another perfect wave..

the waves are super fast but take it chilled and ull totally enjoy.. its a dream..

the other thing to remember is that you should avoid paddling for the earlier waves in a set unless ur confident that theyre yours ifur going for the inner break.. otehrwise the rest of the set will smash you on the rocks..

if you do get thrown to the rocks paddle parallel to the waves until you hit the channel - not towards the waves.. theyre stronger than you and its safer to paddle outwards..

worthwhile studying the waves and taking it easy..

once you get it right its a ride to remember..

fastist lefthader - Honkies is a bit faster than many breaks in the Maldives and fairly hollow on low tide. Fairly forgiving at higher tide. It walls up really well. A top spot.

Paradise for real - Had Honkeys going off for 3 days in a row. Myself and +- 4 others out. Warm water, glassy, 4-6ft solid dark lines wrapping round a small tropical island. Had one of the longest, most perfect waves of my life. Made all the travelling worthwhile. What a rush.
