The southern atolls of the Maldives, a chain of deserted tropical islands surrounded by pristine reefs with world-class waves created by long period Indian Ocean swells, are still very untouched and isolated when it comes to surf exploration.
March 2018 delivered world class conditions in the area. boat trip, but the wait was well worth it…
Sean Holmes and his lively crew of South African frothers were more than ready for some serious tuberiding after a week of fun-sized surf, endless fishing, diving, cold beers and good times.
Fortunately, the winds were favourable during the height of the swell creating sheet glass, light offshore conditions, which also made for optimal water clarity. It felt like you were floating on an invisible cloud over the perfectly manicured reef below…. Paradise.
After the final 2 days of flawless barrels, all onboard where more than satisfied and ready to get home and share their memories, photos and tales of perfect Maldivian tubes with their friends and families.
