Where to surf
The 13 known breaks in the Baa Atoll area are located in 4 different areas, and are only accessible by boat. They all need strong, long range swells with a period over 10 seconds from the SSW, S or SSE to work to their full potential. Although, conditions may vary from break to break, depending on swell size and direction, as well as the strength and direction of the wind these waves work best on mid to high tide.
Raa Atoll is situated directly above Baa Atoll, so is almost completely blocked from direct S swell. Its south-west rim is the most exposed and open to swells from the SSW or SW, while its eastern rim is also open to strong SE swells. As with most breaks in the general area, light variable winds are preferred, along with winds from the NNE, N and NNW depending on the orientation of each break.
Well hidden wave inside the atoll, a playful right hander. Needs big SW swell, above 12s period.
About 3 kilometres to the south of Dharavandhoo, it is the closest wave to the airport. As the name implies it is a right-hander that works best on a SSE swell with W to NE or light variable winds. Probably the heaviest of the few regularly surfed waves in the atoll, it is for intermediate to advanced surfers only..
This left is the standout wave in the region, and is considered world class. It is best on a SSE to SE swell and N to NNE wind.
