One of the main reason you should surf in Huvadhoo is because it’s uncrowded. Hardly 2 to 3 boats are seen in this atoll.
Sometimes 1 to 2. Best thing about Huvadhoo is that all the surf breaks are nearby. You don’t have to travel 5 hours to reach to the next surf break.
All the breaks in Huvadhoo are half an hour away unlike in Malé region. Huvadhoo is not only filled with amazing surf breaks but it’s also filled with tons of sand banks!
In Malé region you have to travel 5 hours to go a sand bank while you can locate 5 to 8 sand banks with a distance of 20 to 40 mins.
There are both, big and small sandbanks. This alone makes Huvadhoo an ultimate surfing destination.
Huvadhoo has one of the best waves in Maldives and less crowded. You can get to enjoy many surf breaks as all the surf breaks in Huvadhoo are nearby.
The waves are best from (April to October). June and July may get wet, but it is hard to complain about the rain in amazing waves and 27°C (80°F) water.
Besides surfing, there are plenty of sand banks to visit. Crew will take you to do an island hopping. BBQ at sand bank sounds like a lovely idea isn't it?
During your holiday, you will tour some of the most attractive areas in the Maldives. The tour will include the most amazing locations of South Atolls, such as Blue Bowls, the Beacons, Casterwave, Thinadoo Cafe Break, Lips Surf Break, the Five Islands, Love Charms, Tiger Stripes, and Gan.
Since a clean southern swell is about all you could ask for at these breaks, the result is waves with a ton of power and heaps of opportunities to get shacked. These southerly atolls differ from the northerly atolls in not providing perfectly shaped or soft-breaking waves. These waves break fast and throw hard, with a whole lot of power, probably best suited for advanced surfers or at least daring intermediates. The waves you will find in the southern Atolls are the kind of waves you keep reliving days, weeks, and months after your Maldives surf trip has come to an end.
South Atolls still remain the last frontier on surf trips. This is one of the most remote areas on the planet, where charter boats are the only form of access, making this an exclusive and relatively expensive surf trip.
The Huvadhoo, referred often as the Southern Atolls, is located in the most southern section of the Maldives, which surfers are continually reminded of when they arrive upon empty surf break, after empty surf break. Although it may not be completely abandoned, fewer surf boats and surf charters operate in this area, causing even the most popular spots in this region to be less crowded than the Northern Atolls.
Of all the Maldives surf spots, the breaks in the southern Atolls remain among the most secluded and idyllic, preserving the reality of a remote island paradise that comes complete with incredible waves. Huvadhoo Atoll is best known for Beacons, Castaways, and Tiger Stripes.
Beacons and Tiger Stripes are two of the most powerful waves in the Maldives, barreling down fast and hard onto a fringed shallow reef, a common feature of southern surf spots, for advanced surfers only. Just remember that swells will break down the reef, but a southeast swell will create peaks slamming straight onto close-out sections of coral.
Voodoos or Blue Bowls is a very long right-hander, very exciting, especially at four to six feet and protected from southwest west winds. This wave is surfable all the time, all swells, all tides, and all sizes. It is a good length for an easy ride and nice sections for some moves.
Five Islands or Gani Point is another right-hander, protected from the south-southwest winds. A hollow wave that breaks hard on a shallow inside the reef and it is better to surf at mid-high tide. This is maybe the wave that handles the biggest swells at all tides.
Love Charms are right next to Two Ways and is working on any swell size. This wave can be surfed at every tide and handles different wind directions, but best conditions occur when it is small size, low tide, and with east winds. It has a beautiful long wave, with two sections, the take-off on the hollow wall and some little nice tubes at the inside section.
Tiger Stripes or Rockets is a fun left-hander, not very hollow, but with long workable walls and a complicated take off into a long speedy wall, before presenting an inside tube section that gets smooth and breaks out easily in the channel. Very consistent and can be surfed at all tides. Best conditions with west-northwest winds. This is a simple and neglected wave when small, but can be really challenging in a strong swell.
You will enjoy eating on the front deck, in a breath taking scenery and fresh air, or even in the indoor dining room. You will enjoy full board meals which include breakfast, lunch, and dinner, along with desserts. The delicious and wide range of food will be available and food can be prepared as per your special requests. For drinks, you will be having complimentary tea, coffee, and mineral water will always be available on board.
For birthdays and special occasions, the Horizon II provides tasty flavored cakes.
