Jailbreaks is Surf Yoga Retreat's homebreak and one of the best waves in Maldives, with very long ride, long walls, and good tube sessions. It's one of the fastest waves in the Maldives and it gets heavy in the big days. With three different sessions, this wave is perfect option to practice turns on small days or long barrels at medium or big days.
The only access to Sultans wave is by Maldivian boat, dhoni. It's a consistent wave and breaks from two up to eight feet. Very fun at small days, this is the most consistent wave in the North Male Atoll. End session can be dangerous and heavy in a big days. It's possible paddle to Honkys from Sultans in small or medium days, if there's no current. Sultans is accessible by dhoni or dingi.
This is the left wave of the same reef as Sultans (right). The beach is government property and one of the best waves when it's working in a perfect swell breaking around the military island. At inside section, it's really barreling and shallow. It's fast left at four to six feet and needs the right swell direction and wind.
Cokes is a great tube spot named after the Coca-Cola factory on the island. It is located on the eastern reef of Thulusdhu and breaks from three feet up to 10 feet. Best on mid to high tide, this wave is the fastest and hollowest in the North Male Atoll.
Next to the Cokes channels, Chickens is a long left-hander which is very fast with sections breaking on a shallow reef more hollow at south swell. It holds three feet up to 10 feet and is named because of the chicken farm on the island.
During the retreat, you will be provided with daily healthy meals that include breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is the essential detail which is going to impact and improve your performance at surf time. Healthy meals must consist of nutrition source because beyond the physical effort required when surfing, the solar radiation accelerates the loss of water and may cause dehydration.
%Knowing this, Surf Yoga Retreat's menu is intended for those who spend a lot of energy. The pre-surf breakfast is served at least one hour before the sport and based on easily absorbed carbohydrate and digestion including breads and toasts, honey, cereal, oats, and fruits. After surf, the ingestion is focused on hydration and muscle recovery (from possible small lesions). That means good sources of protein and carbs are needed. The international dishes served at Surf Yoga Retreat include pastas, vegetables, and the great local tuna.
