Six Senses Laamu Surfing

Steve from the watersports centre at Six Senses Laamu tells us what to expect and when to surf:

The surf season runs April through to October, although there can be waves March and November.

A little about the breaks:

Firstly, the main break on this side of the atoll is the famous Yin Yang a right hand channel pass reef break. The outside section of this wave breaks in deeper water, which makes it a little fatter and slower, suitable for Intermediate-advavanced surfers. This section generally breaks throughout the season between 5'-8' with some larger days at 10'+ during peak season (July/August). The inside section breaks in shallow water which produces a fast hollow wave for advanced surfers only.

We have three left hand parks close to the island off of Jetty C, these break in deeper water and again are suitable, with each peak having a varying level of difficulty, the peak nearest the reef marker can hold a hollow wave, and as you pass further away the wave fattens out. Suitable for intermediate-advanced surfers on larger days 5'-6' and 6'+ on larger days during peak season. On smaller days 2'-3' it is possible for a beginner to ride these waves as long as they are turning and trimming, and know when to kick out. There is also a right handed off of the Jetty C which is shallow fast and hollow, only for the crazy crew!

Outside the watersports Centre we have a shoulder breaking into the lagoon 1'-3' ideal for first lessons as the wave breaks into the deep sand bottomed lagoon. Across the channel from SSLM is petrol island a fun bowl shaped reef that produces an "A" frame, Ying yang takes much of the power away from this swell that hits PI, giving us an option when Ying Yang is to big, blown out, or for intermediate surfers, breaks at 3'-4' on the occasional days 5'-6', the wave is a short ride with an easy paddle back to the peak.

There are several breaks on the East side of the atoll. Machines is a similar break to Ying Yang, doesn't break as big, but is more consistent. Refugees, only starts breaking when Ying yang/ machines are 4'+ Beduge, only starts breaking in large swells, when Machines is 6' +, a good option when everywhere else is blown out or to big.
Isdhoo bank requires a special north to north easterly swell and holds a similar wave type.

Access: Ying yang can only be accessed by boat trip as can petrol island, and the breaks on the east side. Jetty C breaks are an easy paddle, or you can opt for a drop off pick up service or a surf pass with guide.
