Surf Club – Dhonveli Beach & Spa is located right in the heart of the best surf areas of the region. With the region’s most consistent break, Pasta Point, less than sixty seconds walk from your room and Sultans, Honky’s and Jailbreak only five to ten minutes away by boat it doesn’t matter what the conditions are, you’re in the right spot. Dhonveli regulates the number of surfers to a limit of approximately 25-30, however the resort facilities are available to all guests and their families. Annually we have over 70% repeat bookings and a further 25% that are direct referrals from past clients.

The Surf Season – The Surf Season runs from mid February to November when swells are produced by winter low pressure systems in the southern Indian Ocean. The early part of the season has the most stable weather, with light, favourable winds. Swell consistency and size improve from February, with March, April and May having very clean conditions. June to August have the most potential for big swells (the WQS contest is held in June every year), although small tropical storms can be more common in these months. September and October are also very consistent months for swell, with variable winds and small tropical storms becoming less frequent. November is still quite consistent for small to medium size waves and the weather is usually perfect.

The Surf Guides – Bilingual Maldivian surfers who know the waves and the unique conditions that affect surf quality. Any alteration in winds, tides and currents in the Maldives can cause variations in the surf that requires real local knowledge to understand, and without competent guides many good sessions can be missed. The surf guides have their own private radio frequency band, registered with the Department of Communications to ensure reliable communication between the boats and Dhonveli at all times, the only surf operation in the Maldives with this communication and safety setup.

Surf Equipment – Bring everything you need because surfing equipment is sometimes unavailable in Maldives. Most surfers will find a short fun board suitable for most conditions in the Maldives, but bring a longer board for bigger swells. The water is warm enough to swim without a wetsuit, though a light suit or rash vest is a good idea, for protection from the sun and from the coral. Booties are essential for picking your way over exposed coral reefs, and a helmet is recommended.
