Surf Fascination Maldives
Fascination – Surfing the Malé Atolls
Get ready for the rare experience of a multi-atoll surf adventure on board Fascination. With a super powerful 820 hp engine, you can access waves in the Malé, Northern, Central and even Southern Atolls, depending on the length of your trip. The longer you stay on board, the more waves you’ll get to surf!
The minimum stay on board Fascination is five nights. Alternatively, stay longer and surf more waves, with a small fuel surcharge if you travel further afield.
A surf charter on board Fascination gives you the best chance of scoring epic waves and empty lineups, sampling the best surf breaks the Maldives has to offer.
Cokes is one of the most well-known waves in the region. It’s a hollow right-hander which breaks at between 3 to 10 ft. It’s more protected from the southerly winds than Lohis and offers up deep tube rides for the more experienced surfers.
On the other side of Cokes, Chickens is the fastest left-hander in the North Malé Atoll. It’s a swell magnet and can handle swell from 3 to over 10 ft, with rides up to 500m long.
Sultans is one of the most consistent and user-friendly right-handers in the world. With long walls and barrel sections, Sultans has plenty of take-off spots, so crowds shouldn’t be a problem
Located off Thanburudhoo Island, Honkeys is a super-fun left-hander with a mellow take-off, with a 90-degree bend offering a whackable wall. It’s fun, but not always consistent.
This wave is widely known as one of the best lefts in the Maldives. With fun barrels and long 200 metre rides, Tucky Joes is one of the reasons you surf the Maldives.
The picture perfect Inside Mikados is a right-hand reef break just east of Outside Mikados. While only working on the low tide, Inside Mikados offers up peeling down the line rides with short barrel sections.
In the south of Laamu Atoll, Ying Yang is a right-hander that is a frequent stop for Fascination. Ying Yang combines a mellow down the line ride, with a fast inside barrel section. Surfers can get some serious tube riding time if they can push through the more challenging sections.
A highlight of the Meemu Atoll, Muli is a right-hander with barrel sections that offer up some memorable rides for visitors to the Central Atolls. Not a wave to be missed in the right conditions, Muli works best in a south east swell and west/south-west winds.
As mechanical as it sounds, Machines is the best right-hander in this region. Surfing Machines requires a bit of stamina, but the grinding barrel sections make it worthwhile. Machines lacks a channel, so you’ll need to be paddle fit, and be sure to have your wits about you when it’s time to get out of the impact zone.
Note: Surf trips to the Southern Atolls are only available when you’re staying a minimum of 14 nights and a fuel surcharge is applicable. Speak with our consultants if you’d like to take this option.
Experienced Surf Guides
On a surf charter you need an experienced surf guide with knowledge of the local surf breaks. On board Fascination we provide the most experienced surf guides you will ever meet, many of whom grew up surfing the area.
The World Surfaris surf guides are constantly checking surf conditions. They stay in contact with other skippers/surf guides in the area to find fun and empty waves for guests staying on board Fascination.
There are plenty of non-surf activities to keep guests entertained while staying on board Fascination. Grab some fins and a snorkel to explore the underwater wonderland teaming with tropical fish, grab a rod and try your hand at fishing, or go off on an island adventure to explore the palm-fringed coastlines and pristine white sandy beaches.
If organised prior, scuba diving is also available.
