view web site ›'s insider take:

Surfing may have originated in the South Pacific, but it's thriving in the Maldives with legendary waves and year-round water temperatures of 79 to 82 Fahrenheit. Tropicsurf, an Australian company recognized as an industry leader, has instructors based at Anantara and the Four Seasons who bring serious wave riders by helicopter to secret breaks between the atolls. The company only accepts hotel guests, so if riding waves is your priority, book at one of these properties. They are equally adept at teaching novices to hang ten. The first lesson typically consists of stand-up paddle surfing in a serene turquoise lagoon on a special beginners' board. The lesson at Anantara conveniently ends with a final paddle up to the Dhoni Bar where celebrations for staying afloat are in order. More advanced surfers can catch the curls alongside a coach and be videotaped as part of Tropicsurf's personalized skill-progression program. If you opt not to do the Tropicsurf program, you can arrange group and private lessons through most resorts.
