Central Atolls

What's The Surf Like?

The surf season in the Central Atolls runs from March to October when swells are produced by winter low pressure systems in the southern Indian Ocean. The predominant swell through-out the year come from the Southeast to Southwest with swell consistency and size vary from spot to spot during these months.

In general, March, April and May have very clean conditions, June to August the potential for the bigger swells and September and October are known as consistent swell months with variable wind conditions with the area's tropical storms starting to dissipate.

The waves are best between March and October, peaking between April and August. The months of June, July and August are potentially the best months for the biggest swells but tropical storms are more prevalent as the Southwest monsoon approaches. Worry not, the wind doesn't get too strong and clean days are still common. March, April and May have good swell consistency with more favourable weather conditions.

Between April to August the prevailing wind is West to Southwest, from September to November it shifts to Southwest to Northwest and between December to March it shifts again to Northwest to Northeast.
