You know the photo that comes pre-loaded on your new laptop? You know the one with a bunch of palm trees and flat, onshore affected beaches? Well, replace it already!

Click here and feel free to use one of The Perfect Wave’s images photographed in the Maldives instead.

While you are at it, grab a coffee, a beer, a glass of wine or water and kick back and watch the above impressive drone clip of Kandooma Surf Resort.

As you can see, there’s something for everyone in the Maldives, no matter what your surfing level. And of course your partner and family will also thank you!

How has early season been at Kandooma?

Rob Underwood (head guide): Early season has been fantastic. Definitely by far the best in the 4 years I have been here. We have enjoyed a month of glorious weather, one week of pumping head and a half to double overhead. One week of not much, and the rest was waist to shoulder high fun waves with absolute flawless, glassy conditions. We have been very happy campers.

Looks like they scored the best swell of the season thus far on Monday April 27, then experienced a week of perfection in May 10-17. For the full interview and photos with Rob click here.

To add value, we have also organised some special events at Kandooma:

  • Tex Perkins concerts (September 2015)
  • Surf with Mark Occhilupo (October 2015)
  • Mark Richardson Surf Coaching (September 2015)
  • Pete Murray concerts (June 2016)
