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.

Reviews

Damon (August 2018)

The crew on the Naera were sensational. Their friendliness and willingness to help was second to none. The chef was amazing, everyone on board was stoked with the food. Our surf guide, Anko, knew all the spots to be, at exactly the right time. An absolute legend!

Sebastian (June 2016) 

The Naera is a luxurious boat that we found comfortable and relaxing. We spent our days in the water and on the waves and relaxed on deck in the evenings with the other surfers. 

Bradley (Aug 2016)

The Naera was an amazing experience that we would definitely do it again. We were able to surf the best waves and our surf guide was excellent.
