Just got back from a recent trip to the Maldives (August 16 to 27)
with a group of mates and my better half.
We traveled thru the central atolls aboard a beautiful boat
called the Theia organized by Atoll Travel
there was 10 of us all up (5 suppers, 5 prone surfers ) plus crew and our surf guide (Fayani)
boards taken on trip are sunova 8.5 speeed x2, 8.3 ecs mckee turbo and an older 8.6 JP Fusion
wave sizes ranged from waist high to overhead some glassy days some bumpy days but never to much wind
got to surf everyday bar one as we moved breaks but our experienced captain motored thru the night generally
breaks surfed were machines, rip tides, mauroof or zucchinis think it was called, F1 and quarters just to name a few
i know there is a lot of pics here but what the hey didn't no how to post a video

You definitely scored, was the the week before, had 1 glassy day at Machines, the rest of the trip had to deal with wind. Ended up back around Male at Jails & Suntans, sharing with 40 to 50 others, and a boat load of Brazilians.
