My wife and
I got married a month ago and decided to do the trip of our lives. We
both like action sports and to be active on our holidays, rather than just
laying on a tropi.jpgcal beach and drink cocktails all day.. That can be nice too, but we decided to go on a surf trip!
surfing becomes the main purpose for the trip the criteria differ a bit from
what a normal holiday would do, and factors such as wave quality, crowd (number
of surfers) and distance to local surf spots becomes the most important values.
did also want a bit of the traditional values such as nice weather, blue skies and
a feeling of luxury (this was our honeymoon after all).
this awesome five star yacht called Ocean Dancer that focus on surf and diving
in the Maldives. We stayed on the boat for one week and scored the best waves
in our life at famous reef breaks such as Jail breaks, Chickens, Sultans and
many other well known Maldivian wave spots. We spent
the second week at a resort called Anantara that is absolutely idyllic. They
have seven restaurants with fantastic food from different parts of the world.
They also have a sport centre where they arrange surf, dive and snorkel trips.
You can also rent jetskies and do wakeboard/waterskis and much more.
I loved Maldives with its crystal clear water that holds 28 C year round and perfect
waves May through October. I will let the pi.jpgctures tell the rest of the story.
