    Surfing Maldives

    Well it looks like a five year anniversary trip needs to be planned. Waaaahooo and its the wife's idea! I need some beta on which island, which outfit etc. Yes we will be surfing. I know wave hunters and surf atolls are the big dogs. Anyone been? Any beta would be much appreciated.

    Come on guys this is a 2 year save up, once in a lifetime trip for me!
    And I'm so stoked she picked this place with out any of My input. Her childhood friend went and sent her pictures, and don't surf.
    I feel like I won the lottery.
    So if ya been, we would love some input please.

    My only input is that I am jealous. I have always wanted to go there. There are supposedly a few spots that have the gentlest big waves in the world.

    You're coming to SI looking for surf beta? Good luck with that. Mostly, what you'll find here these days is a bunch of wannabe 'bros' looking for their reflection and posting pictures of their cars and dogs and having inane conversations that would embarass middle schoolers about who said what and who's the coolest SI kook on the least coast. Over and over again. Mostly.

    Anyway, hope you find some waves...

    The second link no. First yes. I'm thinking male' atolls, if not it gets spendy really fast. A full on boat trip will not be the best for us. Just due to the time we are going, which will be in late spring to summer. I don't need monsters just solid head high stuff. I'm solid enough where my wife is only a stronger beginner.
    Thanks for the links Brew.

    I have been. I went on a boat trip with http://www.liquiddestination.blogspot.com/ These are Aussie's ( I'm American) I booked with them for boat and bought my plane ticket myself. They know a lot about the atolls and love to get barreled. They specialize in taking you to uncrowded good waves. Here are my pics http://s491.photobucket.com/user/ron...?sort=6&page=1 If you can't swing a boat trip there is a Holiday Inn http://www.ihg.com/holidayinnresorts...kf/hoteldetail that sits on the right that is in many of my pictures. There are a few other waves around there too. Good luck. GO! Even the North Male Atoll popular breaks are worth it!
