Maldives had been on my bucket list since a trip to Sri Lanka in 86'. So when the opportunity to travel there with a mate of mine came up I jumped at the chance and I wasn't disappointed. The aesthetic beauty of the island and surrounding islands, the wonderful relaxed smiling staff, the drinks package which was outstanding and the food. Well I consider myself a real foodie and was looking forward to some traditional curries and was not let down. The food was not only delicious but plentiful and would have catered to the most fussy of eaters. Then there was the reason we went, the waves. At first intimidating, we arrived to a very solid and consistent 5' to 7'swell and the paddle out is not for the beginners at this size. But once settled we were treated to the most consistent quality waves I have had for many many years. Being a goofy helped but that didn't stop my regular foot mate from charging. All in all, an awesome trip thanks World Surfaris.
