MALDIVES - SIX SENSES LATITUDE RESORT
In the central atolls, waves are long clean right-handers average from 3 to 6 foot with bigger days possible. Surf season is year around but very consistent from March till November.
A surf trip to Laamu Atoll is unforgettable. Here you still find uncrowded waves and Laamu is still a relatively new discovery.
Six Senses Latitude looks over Ying Yang, a Righthander First surfed on a boat trip with Pat O'Connell and Satoshi Sekino,Yin Yang is a long outside reef corner right in a pass. Outside is a mellow wall, often cross shore, with safe rides in deep water. Then, the wave bends in the corner, mush out for a while, then wraps into one of the most critical sections in the Maldives. Inside section can be long and tubular, guys getting barreled 3 times.
Close to Six Senses Latitude Laamu are 4 more waves which can be reached through a short boat trip from the resort
The surf around the Central Maldives is not as powerful as say the Mentawais which make these surf trips ideal for all intermediate and advanced surfers.
Spots in the Laamu Atoll are spread from the south facing coastline along the east facing up to the north east corner where waves wrap around. As a result you will find spots protected from all wind directions except a rare straight easterly breeze.
More future surf trips will be planned here…
