Join Blue Star Maldives Surf Retreat in picturesque Maldives for a relaxing and exciting Pilates and surf holiday. You will be guided by Demelza, a surf, health, and Pilates instructor who has years of experience coaching surfers. Pilates and surfing are a great combination. Pilates can improve a surfer's flexibility, strength, control, and endurance.
Guests will stay in shared double rooms, with females and males in separate rooms. Each room has its own shower and toilet. Beddings are provided either in bunks for singles or double beds for couples (availability of double rooms is limited). Private room is available upon request for an additional 50% of the single room rate.
Blue Star runs an onboard training program designed to help you improve your core strength and flexibility so you can surf to your highest potential every day of your holiday. The program will help you minimize repetitive stress injuries and lower back pain and provide the maintenance that every surfer needs to balance out the long days ahead.
Using the proven methods of body weight training and Pilates core strengthening techniques, you will learn about your body’s strengths and weaknesses by understanding how dominant movement patterns can create imbalance and injury through overuse. Surfers will spend 97% of their time paddling. Like all athletes, surfers need to constantly work on improving whole body strength, core control, and flexibility to maintain balance and to perform at their best. Everybody is different, so you will be given the tools to help you understand your body and learn the exercises required for you to increase strength and develop efficient movement patterns. Imagine returning from a surf trip without all those painful injuries. The goal is to provide you with a tailored program that will help you continue your training so you can surf better.
Another long and powerful left-hander, this wave has three sections and barrels on a south swell. Named because of an old chicken farm that existed on the island, this legendary wave which is a swell magnet can be double the size of everything else in the area.
Probably the most powerful and hollow in the North Male Atoll, the ride is short but intense. Named after the Coca-Cola factory on the island, this popular wave is a favorite for people searching for the ultimate barrel.
Honky's is a long left-hander that literally wraps 90 degrees to the right when ridden from the top all the way to the end. It's a thrilling wave to ride with two distinct sections, the second of which grows larger as the wave wraps around the reef. It's a be better experience in the low or middle tide.
Jails is a very consistent wave, even when the winds are unfavorable at the nearby breaks. A very long and fast right-hander with a hollow midsection that barrels in a larger swell, Jails works on all tides and has multiple take-off spots.
This is an exclusive left-hander for the guests of the Hudhuranfushi Resort. Experience better rides in the middle and low tide.
The most frequent wave for beginners and longboarders, Ninja's is an easy right-hander with a fast inside section and a slow outside section.
This is an "exclusive" wave reserved for guests of the resort. It's a shorter but enjoyable wave.
Sultans are very long and easy right-hander in small swell up to about three feet. Sultans is a swell magnet so it is very consistent from three to four feet upwards. It turns into a powerful barreling wave with multiple take-off zones.
Depending on their location, surfers can be brought by Blue Star Maldives to nearby virgin and local islands.
This retreat will take place in North Male, Maldives.
Blue Star Maldives' menu is a combination of healthy local and foreign dishes designed to feed hungry surfers. Unlike in other tropical countries, most of the food in Maldives is flown in from overseas due to its limited farming (including some of the fruits). However, it provides a balanced menu of fresh fish dishes, salads, Asian curries, chicken, vegetables, some popular western dishes, and home-baked snacks.
It caters to guests who have food allergies to dairy, gluten, etc. However, due to its limited kitchen space, it cannot guarantee the prevention of cross-contamination in cases of severely anaphylactic allergies like coeliac disease and chronic peanut allergies.
Surfers can do snorkeling to view sea creatures and colorful corals. Fishing and swimming are other enjoyable activities.
Occasionally, Blue Star Maldives Surf Retreat has a massage therapist on board. This, however, is not guaranteed. Depending on their location, guests can be brought to an island resort to have a spa treatment or a massage. This, likewise, is not guaranteed.
Please book your flight to arrive at Male International Airport (MLE). Transfer from and to this airport is available upon request. The price depends on the number of people being transferred.
