It is an amazing surf charter boat with the bonus of an outside dining area so you can watch the surf while eating your meals. There are 2 sundecks for chilling and plenty of rack space for your board storage. If you haven’t been on a charter before, you will see that having all these different chill out areas is a real bonus.

The lounge area has the normal facilities of TV, DVD and stereo for your entertainment and full bar facilities. There are 2 sundecks for chilling and plenty of rack space for your board storage.

 

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.

 

Male Atolls

 

The North & South Male atolls are what has made the Maldives a famous surf destination. This is where it all began for surfing in the Maldives and now where the major activity is concentrated in the region. With the largest amount of breaks in a small proximity you have waves everywhere making the area a surfers paradise. In North Male you have famous waves such as Cokes, Chickens, Jailbreaks and Sultans. But there are some less known waves as well in the area that with a surf charter you can be positioned for when they turn on. North Male atoll is the most consistent area in the Maldives archipelago chain as it picks up swell from the South East, South and South West.

 

When the swell kicks South East which is the prominent swell direction you can run down to South Male and enjoy the solitude of this area. With world class waves like Foxeys & Tucky Joes to enjoy you can be sure even the most advanced surfer will feel satisfied with the banquet of waves on offer with barrelling lefts and wally rights. For the intermediate surfer, longboarder or SUP rider though you also have so many fun waves to play on like Twin Peaks, Quarters and Rip Tides. Also as part of a TPW Surf charter you have access to Kandooma resort to spend the day by the pool or enjoy a cocktail at the sunset bar or a meal at the famous Kitchen Restaurant in the evening.

 

Captain & Crew


The captain of Hamathi has been doing boat charters in the Maldives forever! He is ultimately in control of the safari. He is supported by a second in charge, boat boy, and full time chef.  The crew are all local Maldivians so know the area extensively and you can be confident of their skills & expertise.
  

One of the most important parts of any surf charter is your surf guide. Your surf guide on The Perfect Wave Hamathi 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.

 

Food & Beverage


Meals on the boats are all-you-can-eat and are a mixture of Maldivian, Sri Lankan and western dishes. The chefs are also willing to adjust the menu to suit individual needs if required. Breakfast is tea, coffee, fruit, juice, toast and a mix of jams and omelettes of your choice.  Lunch & dinner is a banquet of five different dishes with daily variations including fresh fish & tuna dishes, curries, rice and pasta dishes, vegetables and salads. Evening meals are followed by dessert and lunch is followed by a fruit dish. Tea and coffee is served after all meals. A hand of bananas ripen on deck. A full complement of alcohol is available for purchase.
