Surfing in South Male atoll, Maldives

1
Guru Lefts
Description: Miyaru Faru, near the desert island of Gulhi. It can have a good final section with a big swell from the South. It is better with North winds and on high tide.

2
Twin Peaks
Description: It is a spot which seems to attract swells. The waves, shattering against the reef, create sometimes a slow but interesting ride.

3
Quarters
Description: Very nice, rapid and small right-hander which causes less swells than many other places. It is better with West to North-West winds.

4
Kate's
Description: Advanced spot that can be also reached by swimming from Lohifushi. Slow right-hander, perfect for beginners and for long-boarders. It is better with West-North West winds and with a moderate swell from the South. Tides higher than 4 feet spoil it.
