It's November, the Indian Ocean is heading towards its seasonal slumber, but let's not turn our backs on it altogether.

The good folk at World Surfaris have their 2020 calendars all sorted, and as of today are offering specials to Hudhuranfushi Resort in the Maldives.

Don't know it? Click the vid below to get acquainted.

The resort fronts onto Lohis, arguably the best left in the Maldives, but the surf package includes access to seven other waves.

Like all good things, the sale is limited: it starts today and runs for two weeks.

is that joint more dependent on the SE Tradewinds swells or the deeper ocean Indian Ocean groundswells from the 40's/50's?

Bit of both from what I can make out: SE trades provide the daily bread and butter, topped up by any SW swell with enough size to refract into the east facing atolls.

Little to no SW groundswell get's into Lohis. Best you can hope for is S'ly groundswell. SE trades are the biggest benefactor!!!

Anyone stayed there in the past year or so? Can you get Lohis uncrowded?
All the other waves sound like the stuff of nightmares crowd and type of crowd wise

Haven't stayed at Lohis .Stayed on Cokes island 2 years ago, $60/night, most in water at one time was 27, a couple boats turned up & that was when it was smaller & other breaks were too small as Cokes picks up more swell. Had a few surfs with around 6-8 others when there was more swell & other spots working. Type of crowd i found was Euros, Irish, Israelis who you could out paddle/fox & of course Aussies who were more savvy.

Not much of that sounds real appealing to me.

Pasta point is one of the best resorts in that area. It's 'missus' friendly as well :)

It's a 2 minute boat ride to sultans, so when you see the surf charters leave, grab the surf guide and off you go!

Also, pasta point itself can be a lot of fun. But don't go there expecting stand-up barrels.

Yea, I get barrel

That video is more like it was back in 97 and 98 when I went there and stayed at Pasta.
Tony Hinde ran the place well in terms of making sure there was etiquette in the water and everyone got a fair share.
Remember surfing over head Sultans with just two other guys from Perth...happy days..
These days unfortunately sounds like a shitfight

Pasta is still good to go. Food is epic and beers on the deck in the arvo are sensational.

Sultans, well, it can get crowded with Brazilians and Israelis but it didn't bother me too much because I've been surfing for a few years and have lived in places like the Gold Coast, Cronulla and the surf coast in Victoria (now in South-West WA). I don't like to, but I know how to handle crowds when the time calls for it.
