THE SURF IN THE SOUTH ATOLLS OF MALDIVES
Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll is the largest of the Maldives and the deepest in the world. It is located in the lower part of the southern atolls, with the Gaafu Alifu atoll constituting its upper part. Since the beginning of the 90s, safari boats come from Malé to benefit from the regularity of its surf spots and its fishy bottoms. However, 3 days by boat from Male (the sea is sometimes rough), Gaafu Dhaalu is not the most easily accessible destination, especially since the fuel costs are higher to get there than in Paris. other atolls. With the opening of the Kooddoo Airport in September 2012, Gaadu Dhaalu is becoming more and more attractive to surfers. Today, 3 resorts are under construction on the atoll, Ayada Maldives being the first to be already open.
Many spots, affordable lefts, optimal swell exposure.
As for the density of spots, Gaafu Dhaalu competes with Male North with no less than 28 breaks referenced on some maps. Spotlights like Blue Bowls and Tigers Stripes are real swell magnets because of their orientation. Here, the slightest south swell, wherever it comes from, will cause waves. In return, this exposure to wind makes navigation sometimes less pleasant and generates line-up a little messy.
Once arrived at the airport Kaadeddhoo (KDM), not to be confused with that of Kaddhoo (KDO) in Laamu, you are 2 hours from Fiyoari / Beacons, a crazy right when the wind is good (it's quite rare ) and 3 hours from Blue Bowls, the spot that works the best of the atoll. If Blue Bowls and 5-islands are the best straight, you can also quickly go by boat to Love Charms and Tiger Stripes, 2 very regular left even when the onshore wind (and it is not too powerful). The spots of Gaafu Alifu are also very little surf, just like the waves of the KDM airport, which work with NE-SE winds.
