Riding the Waves: Highlights of the Surf Expedition

  • Surf Highlights: Laamu 

Ying Yang, a formidable right-hand wave in Laamu Atoll, Maldives, gained recognition in 1996 and has since become a go-to spot for boat charters. Renowned for its consistent performance, this wave features a distinctive transition from a gentle outer section to a tubular inside, marked by a characteristic corner. Breaking in deep waters, it unfolds gradually, ensuring a secure start before evolving into a prolonged and high-speed inside barrel. Optimal conditions vary with wind patterns, accommodating wave heights from 2 to 12 feet during any tide. For an optimal experience, riders favor a robust southeast swell paired with west winds at Ying Yang..

  • Surf Highlights: Thaa 

Finnimas, featuring an exposed reef, attracts surfers with its alluring barrels. This left-hand wave, known for its variability, sometimes turns into a right-hand wave near the nearby pass. Optimal conditions include a north or northeast wind, though it can tolerate a moderate northwest breeze. Waves range from 2 to 10 feet, responding well to southeast or southwest swells.

  • Surf Highlights: Dhaalu 

Kasabu, situated on the island with Dhaalu Atoll’s sole local airport, offers ideal surfing conditions with a northwest wind and southwest swell. Suitable for all skill levels, the wave peels gracefully along the reef. Beginners can enjoy the end section, while Intermediate and Advanced surfers find long, rideable walls around the island.

  • Surf Highlights: Meemu 

Muli is the primary surf break in Meemu, when in peak condition, the ride at Muli is virtually boundless, featuring occasional hollow sections perfect for tubing.
