most likely the central and northern atolls
What boat charter were you on or land based
The boats we are looking at are handufali`cobia and handu
if anyone has got any feedback on what is a good charter that would be great
PRJ - Yeah iv done sri lanka twice and costa rica once (got unlucky in costa rica somehow! storm stalled off the coast and brought messy waves for 2 out of 3 weeks!!) I think if you shop around you could probably get two weeks out of it for 1500 (north male atoll) - in my opinion if you can push for the extra 500 for funds over sri lanka you will get waves that are more than 50% better - the trip is a little pricey but with what a lot of surf camps/charters charge these days I recon its a good deal overall and you will come away feeling like its well spent. Sri lanka is also one of the most fun places i have ever been as an all round trip/experience, i guess a great trip would be get a flight with sri lankan airlines to the maldives with a stop over in colombo, do 7 -10 days on a boat charter and then spend a week or two in aragum bay. that would be an awesome trip!
Remedy - i went with lineupexplorers and we had the boat MV swell, it was a good boat overall but the AC was broke which I have to say equalled a lot of bad nights sleep for me, but in the end it didnt really bother us cause the crew were absolute legends, 5 of the nicest hard working guys ever. I think cobia and handu, handufali, I dont think you can go wrong with either of the handu's, saw them cruising and they looked nice, I think getting either of those if you can would be a good move, just shop around a get which ever one looks good there are a lot of different boats, 4 seasons explorer if you have unlimited funds (way out of my price range hah). You will enjoy both the northern and central atolls, plenty of perfect set ups
Tallkook - check out Machines in lammuu, best wave we came across in the centrals! call it machines because its like a machine makes the waves I recon
I have the same question! The board size.
I am 35 yo, 1,72m and 71 kg. Been surfing for 4 years and I put myself in a beginer-intermediate level.
I've been looking an ELF 6'1, but after reading preavious posts, i'm afraid that is going to be to big for me!
What do you think?
