quickly thrown together vid of my maldives trip last year ,i wish I'd filmed more ,but was to busy surfing .

but this is what you'd expect if you went on one of moon tours SUP trips ,had a good time
and meet some great blokes ,all with the same interest ,surfing and drinking beer

Sweet Tardy. Your own board or do they make available ?
Also interested to know general
size of waves in that vid. Go Pro can be misleading

Thanks for comments ,I used their boards ,all sunova ,you can book a board ,or have a sunova sent .to the boat .
we targeted the smaller waves ,and less crowded areas where the surfers where not ,
most head north of male ,we headed south ..we had storms .and the weather was not that good
but scored some good uncrowded waves ..the last 2 days of surf where huge ..so shoulder hopping was in order .
the boat and food was fantastic ..they pick you up and boat you to the break carry your boards etc the crew where fantastic ..
we fished all the time off the boat ..and often where still drink and fishing ,seemed like all night ..beers where only $5

make sure you shout the first few drinks ..as after going to the top bar after a few drinks can get tricky .on a rocky boat .
i kinda fell down them stairs holding 4 handles of beer ..laugh of the party .always have one hand free ..

yes I would go again .

so surf size is medium ,but can get big ..on occasion if your lucky ..unfortunately not many left handers ..so all back hand for me ,which is cool ..

this was may 18 th .great journey and life time experience for me ,

our winter is the best time to go .

Epic! Nice vid Dude....looks like an incredible trip!
Fell down the stairs with hands full of beer? someone had to do it!

Almost felt like I was there!
My board was there....
My Kook Hat was there....
...... almost

I actually rode that exact 8'10 Creek at the Sunova Factory in Thailand,
then they ripped it out of my hands to take to the Maldives...
Glad you got to ride it Tardy!

that should get you "strike one" on YouTube.
anything from top bands may get you busted for copy-write infringement.

Great vid. I love that feeling of your first wave of the trip. So much anticipation for months prior, so much travel, and then you paddle into a clean wall and boom.....the trip has started. I am always bummed after every trip that I didn't get more footage too.
