Each island has its specific characteristics, its reefs, its geography, its exposition that all create very different waves for all tastes! The best way to explore this archipelago and experience all this diversity is undoubtedly opting for the mobile option: Only by boat you can access different islands many of them separated by a few kilometres that would never be accessible by staying at a resort.
Come and find out why the Maldives are called the "Paradise on Earth".
On the main deck there is a lounge area with a wide flat screen TV, DVD/MP3 player. Outside of the lounge area there is another sitting area in the shade with comfortable cushions. On the main deck there are also located two double cabins, a gallery, luggage storage room, surf equipment room, laundry room, common toilet , office and another open air sitting area at the back of the boat.
On the upper deck you'll find the remaining suites in the front and the restaurant and bar area located at the back of the boat where you will be served semi buffet meals prepared by our great chef.
From the dining area a staircase takes you to a wide top deck partially shaded with a sitting area in the middle and some lounge chairs to get a nice tan.
However this is not the scenario in the Maldives. Only a few islands in certain Atolls offer reasonable waves to be surfed, some several kilometres apart from each other.
It is necessary to have the right orientation and geography as well as a favourable reef formation for the creation of good waves and this combination of factors is not so easy to find. In general, they are all in the E or SE part of the Atolls but you have to be very expert about where these islands are located and on which days they have the best conditions!
In the Maldives it is crucial to go on a boat trip with a good surf guide or with a good captain who knows all these islands like the palm of his hand and knows the local surf conditions well. Otherwise most of the time is spent sailing around!
Our base trips are held in Malé Atolls but addition to these best-known surf spots in Malé Atolls, there are plenty of waves to be discovered in the Central Atolls and South Atolls. Here you can truly experience what the Maldives has to offer you: perfect waves and no crowds!
The captain of Carpe Novo and our guide are at your disposal to embark on one of these trips! Gather your friends and step on board.
Let us know if you want to book one of these trips down south. We can organise you a tailored surf trip to any place in the Maldives.
