Maldives Surf Season - Surfing in Maldives
Surfing came to the Maldives in the late 70s. In 1973 Tony Hinde an Australian surfer took a break from surfing in Sri Lanka and together with a friend set sail for the Africa. He was never to reach his destination. His ship seriously off course was shipwrecked on the shore breaks of Male'. Tony discovered the thrill of surfing on the Maldivian reefs. He changed his name to Tony Hussein Hinde, married a local lady, opened his own surf agency and decided to stay for good.
March 2010- Fun surf - Spent a week with my 13 and 10 year old daughters at Quikkie surf school. Fun waves waist to shoulder high at Punta Blanca (right) and Boneyards( left)on the North Shore; Flag Beach was 2-4ft and side offshore- fun! The wind really blows here and changes direction day to day. You must have a vehicle to move around to find the right break for the day. Big tide swings,too. Water quality perfect, 66 F and crystal clear. Waves are powerful and the reefs- lava rock, a few urchins. Recommend for a winter surf trip in Europe.

Surf in December + August - Been to FV loads of times, the surf in december is awesome, so clean and consistent. Just at the end of last year I was there for a big swell, blessed with nice clean offshore lines for a most of the week, then the stormy waves greeted us, turning flag beach into a huge closeout, also it exposed all the rocks below the sand which I later found out when I hit the bottom. The surf in july/august time is weak compared to the winter, its still fun tho, head to flag beach in the summer and north shore in the winter, unless the north shores maxed.
July? - Yo. I'm looking to cruise to Fuerteventura end of June/ early July. What's the swell like then? looks pretty small on the guide at the bottom of this page but feedback from a local would be appreciated.
- hi. you could get good board at a local shaper called joyas. just ask at a local beach. he lives in lajares.
