Surf Haira Surf Charters
Get ready to experience a surf trip of a lifetime and surf some of the best waves the Maldives has on offer. From May through to September, Haira Surf Charter explores the Central Atolls in search for perfect and uncrowded waves. The Centrals, less frequented than the Northern Male Atolls, has become known for the exquisite tropical scenery and minimal crowds, with a variety of reef breaks to suit most surf abilities.
During your stat on board Haira Surf Charter, you’ll have the chance to discover more than 20 surf breaks. The Meemu, Thaa, Dhaalu and Laamu Atolls all pick up consistent swell and favourable offshore winds during the peak season. Some of the best waves in the region include Muli, Inside Mikados, Finnimas, Machines and Ying Yangs.
With both a traditional Maldivian dhoni as well as a tender boat as support vessels, the Haira crew will group surfers by ability and preference to ensure everyone is scoring perfect waves.
In the Thaa Atoll, off Hirilandhoo Island, Maliks is a left-hand reef break that, given the right conditions, offers up long, satisfying barrels. While this wave isn’t always performing at its peak, if you stumble upon Maliks during a south/south-west swell and south-east/east wind, you won’t be disappointed.
Finnimas isn’t for the faint of heart, as it breaks over some pretty shallow reef, however this left-hander is high up on the ‘to surf’ list for many visitors to the Central Atolls. While not the biggest wave in the Maldives, it’s definitely one not to miss given the right conditions.
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 Haira Surf Charters. Ying Yang combines a mellow down the line ride with a fast inside barrel section where 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.
Previously off-limits, Jailbreaks is a long right-hander with three sections, including a mid-barrel section. When it’s lining up right, you can expect a super-fun 300m ride!
Travelling 20 minutes north you’ll find this fun right-hander which breaks off Kani Resort. It’s great for beginners to intermediate surfers. With an easier take-off, on smaller days Ninjas is good for longboarders or cruising on a fish, and on bigger swells it’s lots of fun on a shortboard.
If you travel another 25 minutes you’ll come across one of the most well-known waves in the region. Cokes is 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.
On a surf charter you need an experienced surf guide with knowledge of the local surf breaks. On board Haira Surf Charters, we provide the most experienced surf guides you will ever meet, many of whom grew up surfing the area. The professionally trained World Surfaris surf guides are constantly checking surf conditions. They stay in contact with other skippers and surf guides in the area to find fun and empty waves for guests staying on board Haira.
If you’re not surfing, there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained while staying on board Haira Surf Charter. You can explore the crystal clear waters of the Malé and Central Atolls with a snorkel, goggles and fins, or take off on a fishing excursion with one of the support vessels. If you prefer to take things at a slower pace, there are plenty of white sandy beaches, local villages and uninhabited islands waiting to be explored.
