Waves in the Maldives during the month of June

The Maldives atolls stand as a tropical haven strategically nestled at the heart of the Indian Ocean, offering prime exposure to Southern Ocean swells. From June to August, the region experiences the highest potential for sizable waves, typically ranging between 4 to 6 feet, with the possibility of scaling up with significant swells. Should a substantial swell grace our shores, the direction it takes will dictate the brilliance of specific surf spots, while others maintain their welcoming allure. All surf locales within the atolls are characterized by reef breaks, with optimal conditions often coinciding with mid tides. Accessible within a boat ride spanning 8 to 30 minutes from the island, we boast six world-class surf breaks, comprising two lefts and four rights, awaiting avid wave riders.

JAILBREAKS (AKA JAILS) will be your home break for the week: a perfect long, fast right-hand reef break with three sections and ample power, offering intermediate surfers opportunities to practice fundamentals and advanced riders chances to attack the lip and chase barrels. Accessible within an 8-minute boat ride or a short walk from the island, this wave allows paddling out at any time.

Other spots nearby that you’ll surf during the week depending on weather and conditions: SULTANS, HONKYS, NINJAS, CHICKENS, COKES.
