Surf Seasons

The best season for Surfing in the Maldives is determined to a large extent by the monsoon circulation. Each year there are two monsoons seasons, the north-east monsoon, (local term, "Iruvai") from December to April and the south west monsoon, (local term, "Hulhangu") from May to October.

The Surf Season runs from mid February to November when swells are produced by winter low pressure systems in the southern Indian Ocean. The early part of the season has the most stable weather, with light, favourable winds. Swell consistency and size improve from February, with March, April and May having very clean conditions.

June to August have the most potential for big swells (the WQS contest is held in June every year), although tropical storms can be more common in these months.

September and October are also very consistent months for swell, with variable winds and tropical storms becoming less frequent. November is still quite consistent for small to medium size waves and the weather is usually perfect.
