This Maldives setup beats Kelly’s wave pool. So machine-like… – Photo Nathu.
Last time I was in the Maldives, a work friend emerged from the water post surf with a smile on his dial, basking in the afterglow of an epic surf to say, ”It’s like a real fun park out there.”
I’ve often reflected on his comment and adopted it when appropriate since. It is exactly the way I perceive the Maldives.
I view the entire region as an incredible, natural, living, breathing, fun, water park. The whole set up is almost too good to be true, right?
Its perfect, there’s no real hazards: It is politically stable. No terrorism.
Yes, there’s sharks, but they are generally well fed and mostly harmless reefies. No history of attacks.
Yes, the waves break on reefs, but there are no real death slabs or super shallow/sharp Indo or Sth Pacific style reefs.
There’s lefts, rights, fun walls and hollow sections – literally something for all standards from shredders to absolute beginners and everyone in between.
The variety and quality of food, service and accommodation on our charter boats or land resorts is insane, and yes, you can enjoy a relaxing alcoholic beverage without being harassed.
More perfect than KS’s wave pool, and bigger too. Photo Nathu
The whole region really is some kind of fantasy surfing Garden of Eden with waves.
The closest thing I could compare the best waves in the Maldives with would be Kelly’s new wave park prototype. However, the key difference is the Maldives is real, you are dealing with nature and all its wonderful variables. Kelly’s wave pool remains a research and development project.

It especially makes sense to book before Christmas to take advantage of The Perfect Wave’s Early Bird deals.
As glassy as the first wave of the day in Kelly’s pool. – Photo Nathu
