Going to the Maldives on a boat trip.
Heading to outer atolls, other than that not sure of any info on location or how to guage a forecast.
Anyone have any useful tips for using any websites for forecasts? (weather and swell)
I've read some old threads from some of the forecasters on here doing Maldives forecasts but other than that I can't find anything useful, or current.

I used Stormsurf to check for swell when I went to the Maldives , boogie .

Was a long time ago .

ANY huge storm that pumps swell to Bali will be promising , especially , if it has a northerly dimension .

It will wrap around to the Maldives , hopefully .

Good luck .


Boogie , I now realise my reply was terribly slow .

Hope U scored .

( I will get better glasses - F Me )

edit 2

F Me again .

No one gave boogie a reply ???

Oh My Stars .

Craig , unless boogie is planning another trip , I may have wasted your time .

Lucky the baby girl is not born , yet .

When I said I was late with a reply , I meant REALLY late .

His message , I later discovered , was sent at 8.51am on the 19th of May !!!

2022 .

However , I am planning on going to the Maldives in late April ( U can't come as u are busy then , already ) .

My girls and I planted some baby coral in Kandoomah 10 years ago ..

Have asked them were we put the little tackers as may go look and see how they look now .

So , good forecasting by U , after all , again .

Very reliable :)

Thank U !
