Surf

Surf

The Surf Season runs from mid February to November, when low pressure systems in the southern Indian Ocean generate consistent swells. The early part of the season has the most stable weather, with light, favorable winds. Swell consistency and size improves from February, with March, April and May having very clean conditions.

June to August have the most potential for big swells, although tropical storms can be more common in these months.

September and October are also very consistent months for swell, with winds less variable and tropical storms becoming less frequent. November is still quite consistent for small to medium size waves and the weather is usually perfect for a beach holiday.

Central Atol Surfing

Theia focuses on the surf in the Central Atoll zone primarily around 4 atolls: Laamu, Meemu, Thaa and Dhaalu.

These atolls host a number of breaks that go by different names depending on who you talk to; some include Finnimas (L), Mikado (R), Machines (R), Malik’s (L) and Haymark (L). Our experienced surf guides will make sure you are in the right place at the right time.

Seasons & Weather

Seasons & Weather

The Maldives in the middle of the Indian Ocean is known as the flattest country in the world. The highest point in all of the Maldives is less than 10 feet above sea level. That unique geography makes the Maldives wide open to wind, weather and swell.

The Maldives have two seasons based on the monsoons that form over Asia: From November to April is Northwest monsoon season when hot dry air flows toward the equator and over the Maldives. The clear skies from November to April attract snowbirds from all over Europe and the world. This is prime tourist season for the Maldives but not prime surf season.

In April and May at the start of the northern hemisphere summer, Low pressure areas attract cool moist winds flowing from the Indian Ocean in the southwest across the Maldives. The southwest monsoon lasts from May to October, which is also prime surf season as southern hemisphere winter Low pressure systems off Antarctica spray long energy bands NW across the Indian Ocean.

As the Maldives straddle the equator the effects of the Monsoon Seasons are minimized. Rain and wind squalls pass through mainly June through August. Air temperatures are in the 80s and 90s while the water temperature is in the 80s year-around.

To sum it all up, the surf in the Maldives is best from late February through October, with the biggest months, June, July and August often getting rain from the wet winds of the southwest monsoon.
