Huvadhoo Atoll

Arguably the best waves in the Maldives are found in this atoll which is the biggest one in the country and has numerous reef channels on the eastern, southern and western sides. The best time to visit is during the North East Monsoon (December to March). Although there are waves to ride throughout the season, swell is most consistent during January and March. During this time waves can be 8 to 10 feet, even up to 12 feet. Some of the waves which have been surfed are at Gadhdhoo, Gan, Gazeera, Vaadhoo, Fiyori while many others are still ‘un-surfed’.It will take at least 2 days to travel to this Atoll by boat in the best of weather conditions. During this time you will journey through many beautiful atolls still untouched by the commercial world. You can make the most of this opportunity to do some great fishing.

  • Day 1: Pick up from airport. First stop at South Male', anchor at Gulhi and surf at Gulhi break.
  • Day 2: Early morning departure to Meemu Atoll. Afternoon surf in Veyvah, Mulah or Muli. Anchor at Muli.
  • Day 3: Early morning departure to Laamu Atoll. Head for Maamendhoo where we anchor for the night.
  • Day 4: Cross the one and half degree channel to Huvadhoo Atoll. Expect great fishing while crossing the channel. Arrive at Villingili island and surf the left of this island and the right off the island of Koodoo, which is just paddling distance across the channel. Works best in W and NW winds.
  • Day 5: Surf Gadhoo. Left hander with barreling inside section. Works best on North and North East winds.
  • Day 6: Surf in Gan island, a right and a left.
  • Day 7: Surf Gazeera. Left hander. You can have a long ride with great sections coming up. Can handle up to any swell ranging from small to large. We anchor very close to the break for photo opportunities. Best winds are from North and North East. Also can work on North West winds.
  • Day 8: Surf Boduhutta. Right hander with heavy inside section which tends to close out but opens up in good conditions. Shallow inside. Best winds North and North West. Picks up plenty of swell.
  • Day 9: Surf Vaadhoo. Right hander which works in South West and West winds. The wind
  • is favorable during the South West monsoon. Other option is to head to Fiyori.
  • Day 10: Surf Fiyori, the heaviest wave in the Maldives. Travelling surfers have likened it to waves found in the South Pacific. Right hander which barrels heavily. Plenty of skill and guts required to ride this wave. Pick up swell even when other waves are small. Best conditions are North, North East winds.

How to get there

Please note that the operator will organize your domestic flights from Male to the area where you wish to surf. The Meeting Point where he picks you up or drop you off is Male International Airport. Domestic flight times may not be published until a few weeks before your trip starts and may always change on short notice. The best chance to avoid long stopover times is to arrive at Male International Airport earlier than 7.40 am on the first day of your trip and not to leave earlier than midnight on the day after your last day of the trip. For groups larger than 7 pax the domestic airline usually adjusts their schedule to our needs. The earlier you let us know your international flight times the earlier we can request the domestic flights that suits your needs. The flight times of adjusted flights will never be confirmed until a few days before departure, though. But especially for groups larger than 7 pax it works very well and average stopover times are 2- 3 hours if all passengers arrive with the same international flights.
