Maldives, Revisited

early season gamble = empty lineup!

April is a tough month for a surf trip in this region: the Atlantic has slowly shut down and the Indian has just started to warm up so we took a gamble with hitting the Maldives in April. Most normal travelers experience a pre-trip excitement anticipating the pending adventure and break from reality. For better or worse this hits me with a combined anxiety about the weather charts. Luckily mother nature cooperated and we got some damn good waves, light winds and plenty of sun for a week long boat trip.

sets got bigger as the morning went on. I'm thinking to myself if a 5'7" quad was the best idea. shit quality as its a still from video

Club Med made the mistake of allowing us on for all-you-can-eat-and-drink on our last night. Needless to say, things got a bit out of hand...
