The vessel is equipped with a 10 person dingy to transport you to the surf breaks, deserted islands or chasing dolphins with your snorkel. After a few days on board you are not going to want to get of though as life on a boat is a feeling you cant get anywhere else.


Surf Guides

One of the most important parts of any surf charter is your surf guide. Your surf guide on Dhinasha is employed full-time by TPW Maldives and trained by ISA (International Surf Association) as a Surf instructor and SGA (Surf Guide Association) in safety, rescue, first aid and hospitality. All our hand-selected, well-trained guides have been running surf charters for many years, and are the best and most experienced in the Maldives. With the largest network of surf operations in the Maldives, they know where and when it is good and will put you in the spot. They will also be in daily contact with TPW Regional Operations Manager to ensure you have everything covered for an amazing Maldivian surf experience.


Central Atolls

The Meemu, Thaa and Laamu Atolls offer spots exposed to all directions and for all levels. All spots in the Meemu Atoll are on a coast line facing to the east. There is always a left- or a right-hander well-protected from the predominant south westerly wind directions. South-easterly or even easterly winds may affect all spots negatively. All spots are close to each other so that you can change spots within a few minutes!


The Thaa Atoll picks up south-west swell and may be even bigger than spots on east facing coastlines of other atolls. Due to its secluded location, it is almost guaranteed that you will not even spot another surf charter during your stay. The spots are well protected from North to Northwest winds. Conditions may be fickle with other wind directions. This area will be chosen only in very stable weather conditions.


Spots in the Laamu Atoll are spread from the south facing coastline along the east facing up to the north-east corner where waves wrap around. As a result you will find spots protected from all wind directions except a rare straight easterly breeze.


"Total Maldives" trip

Why pick an area of the Maldives to surf when you don’t have to! We here at The Perfect Wave have created the “Total Maldives” trip. You can surf any atoll from the North Male to Laamu Atoll, or even further down south, if the conditions are good. This trip is a fully flexible, no-limitations surf safari taking you to secret spots around the island paradise chain with just you and your mates for company, except of course the abundant marine life. The only limitations is the weather and nature and your surf guide will make sure to advise you which breaks work best under any given weather conditions. This is the first trip of its kind so be part of history and get on board Hamathi and experience this truly awesome surf destination.

This helps save the local environment from the pollution of using plastic bottles.

Internet Access

All TPW Maldives charters have Wi-Fi Hotspots onboard for basic website browsing, emails, messages and wi-fi calling. But if you are after more download bandwidth for streaming services etc the cheapest option is to just grab a SIM from one of the local providers which can be purchased at the airport once you have cleared customs, or at a local village during your trip. You can also add the global roaming option to your current plan but make sure you’re aware of the costs involved with your provider.
