Niyama Private Islands is launching its 2021 Surf Week from 1 to 7 November, hosting Josh Kerr and Matt Parker, two big names in the world of surf, and with a full program of surfing and socializing for participants.
Josh Kerr, former Australian pro surfer, and two-time world surf air show champion will be sharing his expertise during daily surf clinics as well as one-to-one surfing coaching sessions. Josh has also been Todo Santos Big Wave Champion and a ten times top ten finishers in the WSL championship tour.
Matt Parker of Album Surfboards will be analyzing guests’ surfing styles and producing a tailormade board for each participant. Matt was the 2021 Electric Acid Surfboard test winner with surfer Coco Ho and has been shaping one-of-a-kind, innovative surfboards since 2001.
In addition renowned professional surf photographer, Erick Proost, currently, resident at Niyama, will be there to capture action images of the guests riding the waves.
Niyama is the only luxury resort in the Maldives with its own wave breaking onto the shore – Vodi – which is a powerful and sometimes hollow left-hander. Off to the west and five minutes away by speedboat, Kasabu is a rippable and hollow right-hander. There are also a number of other surf spots in and around the Dhaalu Atoll that can be easily reached from Niyama by speedboat or seaplane.
