The Maldives is one of the few places on Earth that does not have a “set” season for holidays. No matter what month of the year it is, the average temperature is 86F degrees. You can kite surf all day and then relax on the beach while watching a tropical sunset, all year round.
The Maldives is in the Indian Ocean, which happens to be the warmest ocean on Earth, so the water is just as welcoming in January as it is in July. The water conditions are rarely ever troublesome so they are perfect for any kind of water sport.
As your board glides over the crystal clear ocean, the coral reef and ocean life can be seen just as clearly as if you were diving. Beginner, intermediate and expert kite surfers alike will find their perfect spot in the tantalizing Indian Ocean.
No matter if you preference in kite surfing is freestyle, riding the wave, jumping or speed; the waters around these magnificent islands are so diverse that the possibilities are endless. While one side of an island offers calm and gentle waves, the other side can offer reef breaks and wild times.
Islands such as the Vilu Reef (Meedhulfushi) feature just trade winds with small waves and white sandy beaches. This is a beginner’s paradise with calm water and rarely any hazards. If it is extreme that you prefer there are islands to accommodate those needs as well.
Such as the Olhuveli Island that features both trade and frontal winds. The water along the west side of this island is shallow with small waves. On the east side you will find much larger waves and reef breaks that seem to go on forever. When it comes to kite surfing, there is no better place on Earth like the magnificent Maldives Islands.
