It’s only right that the first shot of this monthly feature is of Lohis, the super consistent left here at Hudhuranfushi. This is where guests usually catch the first wave of their holiday in front of the legendary Lohis deck.

Lets face it, the waves have been small here in the N Male region of the Maldives, but we are still in paradise. Catch a couple waves, go for a snorkel, ride another wave. Good times.

When we have had swell we have literally surfed all day. This is Amy, choosing to skip lunch to smash a Lohis lip instead.

Soft wave, fat board fun at Lohis.

Why wouldn’t you surf all day in water like this?

Sunsets on the Lohis deck can be quite a party with all the crew enjoying the all-inclusive drinks after a good days surfing. Other times it’s a place for quite contemplation and appreciation. This evening was the latter.

Greg would walk up to the point and paddle out by 6AM, surf hard all morning, have a late lunch, then be back out there for the evening session. He is sixty three and rides a 6’3 …inspirational stuff!

Even when it’s small you can still generate a lot of speed at Lohis. Amy burning it off down the line.

There are few better feelings than pushing through a wave on a hot day in the Maldives!

Overhead and pumping if you’re a 35kg grom!

When it’s too small to surf, we swim. Then we surf anyway.

Not the most challenging waves in the world, I agree, but how much fun could you have with just four surfers in the water? This was a beautiful evening with some nice 3ft sets. Sheet glass on dark. Good times.
