October 2015, Swell Report by Richard Kotch

The first week of October delivered one of the better swells of the season.

A strong south pulse that lasted four days in absolutely perfect conditions! All the waves in the North Male area turned on but the inside section at Sultans was hard to pass by. An easy take-off into a nice open barrel section and very low numbers in the water.

The next two weeks were everything you would hope for in the Maldives in October – sheet glass 2-3ft and light crowds. Lohis was so consistent that it was hard to get the guests to go and check anywhere else, but we did have a couple sessions down at Honkies and a really perfect evening up at Cokes and Chickens. If you like the idea of small but perfect little waves and low numbers of surfers on island, then October is a good option!

Amy and I flew out on the 22nd just as the south wind picked up but apparently on the 24th the wind had backed off again and 5 guests were enjoying some good late season Lohis.
