One of my favourite places to get away from the crowds and surf any kind of wave I want, from epic barrels to easy-to-carve walls, is the Southern Atolls of the ultimate surfers’ playground, the Maldives.
The best time to go is in March and April when the winds are low and the crowds are nearly non-existent. A true swell magnet with over a dozen consistent spots, the surf action is centred on the pristine reefs of Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll. The best way to score all-time sessions once you’re there is cruising around on a deluxe surf charter boat with a knowledgeable captain and a tuned-in surf guide.
Two great options that fulfil all the criteria to deliver you a trip of a lifetime are the Naera and Surf Sojourn. An added bonus if you book now, you’ll not only score great surf, you’ll also get up to 30% off your trip thanks to our 2018 Early Bird Deals.
A trip aboard the MV Naera is a unique surfing experience. It’s a spectacular catamaran and the newest addition to The Perfect Wave Maldives Charter Fleet. After enjoying a day of idyllic waves, scrumptious meals in the dining room or out on the deck, and sunset cocktails at the bar listening to tunes on the Bose sound system, let the boat lull you to sleep in one of the 8 cabins as it travels to the new wave where you’ll wake up in the morning.
With one of the most experienced captains in the Maldives at the helm, the Surf Sojourn with The Perfect Wave offers an exclusive surfing adventure with only 5 cabins and no more that 8 surfers on open charters. Aside from the fantastic waves, the highlight of any voyage is feasting on fresh fish dinners and sashimi platters. Newly refurbished, the Surf Sojourn is more comfortable than ever and offers a beautiful shaded Bimini sundeck for stretching your surfed-out muscles or just enjoying a nice refreshing drink while gazing out over the Indian Ocean.
