Join us on board Handhu - owned by Island Hop, the longest operating surf charter boat in the Maldives. With 25 years of Maldives boat charter experience, this trip will tick all the boxes for the perfect surf escape.

We will stay in twin cabins with lower double bed & upper single bed. All including high quality bedding, AC and ensuite bathroom.


Main Deck with a large fully shaded Lounge/Dining area with Bar, Galley, Speedboat launch and outdoor shower.


Upper Sundeck - Massive open area prefect for our yoga and movement sessions as well as sunset drinks.


Maldives is renown for its perfect waves. March is a shoulder season with smaller swells perfect for Intermediate surfers.Being on the boat means we will be able to find the best waves at the best times with minimal crowd factor. Making sure that you'll score some of the most fun rides!

You will be able to see yourself riding the waves and get detailed feedback on how to progress during our 2 video analysis sessions - the best way to advance your skills.

This retreat is suitable for ladies from intermediate level up. Longboards, mid lenghts and fun boards are welcome :)

We recommend bringing your own board on this Trip. If it's not possible you can check the boards available for rent: Surfshop Maldives.


To complement all salty sessions we added intentional practices to our week together. Yoga & mobility classes to stretch and restore sore muscles.

But it’s not only about physical fitness - the real surf progression happens when all the elements fall into place! That’s why we included journaling and self-reflection practices, as we know that the mindset is the secret ingredient to make that next step on your surfing journey.

Classes will be led by our experienced female teacher.


You will get to experience the real Maldives. We'll be cruising through South and North Atolls, searching for persect waves, visiting local islands, swimming, snorkelling, fishing (if you're keen) and watching sunset from the Top Deck of Handhu.

We will also venture on a trip to Vaavu Atoll for an unforgettable shark and wreck dive experience (don't worry the sharks are really friendly :)​
