Four Seasons Resort Maldives is located only a few minutes' boat ride from some of the best surf breaks, described below. Sultans (Thamburudhoo Right) – Located on an uninhabited island on the eastern reef of North Malé Atoll, this is one of the most consistent waves of Malé Atoll, and never closes out, even on the biggest swells. The takeoff is a steep outside peak called Phantoms, which slingshots into a very long, walled, super-fast section called the Pinnacles, over 1 metre (4 feet) high. All three sections can be thrilling tubes. Rides are 91–137 metres (298–449 feet). Honky’s (Thamburudhoo Left) – Adjacent to Sultans on the eastern reef of the North Malé Atoll, this break starts small and increases in size and intensity as it wraps 90 degrees around the island. A 1.8-metre (6-foot) wave on the takeoff ends up at least 2.4 metres (8 feet) on the end section, called Fred’s Ledge. There are long rides and tubes through all sections – best on low tides unless the swell is huge. The best months for this wave are February, March and April (it is affected by strong currents in the southwest monsoon from May to October). Chickens – Named after a poultry farm on the island, Chickens is located at Villingilimathi Huraa (Kuda Villingili), another uninhabited island on the eastern reef of North Malé Atoll. When conditions are perfect, it is a pleasant thin, peeling, racing lip. Daily boat rides to surf breaks are available for the competent surfer. Your experience can also be recorded on video for posterity.
