Riptides is one of the best waves in the South Male Atolls- a fun right hander breaking for over 150 meters. It is situated in a channel which makes it hard to maintain your spot in the line-up due to a tidal current. The wave walls up and breaks quite quickly with the occasional barrel section, making it a great wave for longboarders and shortboarders as well as low intermediate surfers, providing very carvable walls with the occasional hollow section. Best with S swell and SW wind.
This is a hollow and fast right wave that breaks over a shallow coral. It’s “Goofys Paradise” or if you’re fast on the backhand you will love this wave. Breaks for 100 to 150 metres and provides many barrel opportunities. Best with SE swell and NW wind. On transfer you will visit both Foxy’s and Rip Tides, so you get the best of both worlds.
Twin Peaks offers both a left and a right that picks up quite a bit of swell. It is a similar set up to Sultans in the North Atolls, as the wave runs into the safety of a channel. The right tends to be a bit more consistent, however the left is generally cleaner in a larger swell.
Directly in front of S-Resorts Maldives, Kandooma is a long peeling right hander that͛s fun at any size. At 3-6ft on the lower tides, the fun really begins. It has two distinct take off sections, the outside is the softer mal friendly option, but the inside peak reels off down the reef for 100 metres. Best on a SSE or SE swell over 4ft.
Kandooma offers something for everyone, from beginners that want to move to an intermediate level, to experienced surfers wanting fast barrels and rippable walls. The already perfect conditions are made even better by our strict policy of limited numbers, which guarantee’s all surfers enjoy an uncrowded Kandooma Right, everyday.
To top it off, we believe there is no closer accommodation to take off zone in the world and you barely have to walk 30 meters from your villa to the paddle out point. On days when you’re taking a break, you can even watch the hollow and highly rippable waves peel down the point from the comfort of your bed.
Tucky Joe's & Quarters
A 45 minute boat ride from the resort, Tucky Joes is regarded by many as one of the best lefts in the Maldives. It’s known to throw some incredible barrels throughout its freight train like, 200 metre plus rides. Opposite Tucky Joe’s is Quarter’s, aptly named due to the wave breaking alongside the staff quarters. Sheltered by these buildings on the headland, it͛s the go to when the wind switches. The inside section of this right hand point occasionally provides a punchy barrel section.
Kates is a small and short left-hander that works very good with NW to N winds. It’s quite peaky at the take-off before it rifles down the line, however it rarely gets over 1 metre. A swell angled further from the North will make it more manageable and it is more forgiving on a higher tide.
