Locale: A surfer’s paradise in the Maldives

It’s not too late to book your trip.

Whether you’re a veteran or a newbie, surfing is probably one of those things on your bucket list. So why not do it at the Maldives and check two items off your list? 

Hear us out. Sure, there are a great many places to surf, all over the world. But the Maldives has LUX* North Malé Atoll, and they’ve just introduced their very own surf point with the LUX* Break. From kite surfing to wave surfing, whatever your skill or experience level, this place is for you. 

But don’t take our word for it. Hear it from a champion: Evgeny (Jackson) Novozheev. 

Who? Oh, he just happens to be the Guinness world record holder for being the first to cross The Bering Strait from Russia to Alaska in 2011. And he’s a four-time Russian national champion of Kite Freestyle. “The resort is a kite surfer’s paradise with its wind conditions, shallow waters and warm temperatures. The breezier months from May to September offer wind speeds between 11 and 20 knots, complemented by the spacious lagoon as well as the nearby sandbank, which is perfect for kite surfers to take off in any direction. Beginners can also use the sandbank as a playground to learn to manoeuvre the equipment. Overall, the light to medium consistent winds are perfect for kite foiling.” 

It’s not too late to book your trip. The LUX* Break serves up gentle, rolling waves during certain conditions between May and October, exemplary for all levels of experience for riding the waves. For surfers seeking additional adventures, the resort provides guided excursions to five of the country’s most famous surf spots located 20 to 40 minutes by speedboat.

The resort also offers the highest standards of equipment for rent, from kites to boards, as well as board binding, fins, harnesses and pumps. 

For beginners, experienced instructors are on hand for one-on-one instruction. The resort can also organise private speed boat transfers with catered lunch as well as a photographer to capture the exhilarating moments.

So, have you packed your rash guard yet?
