When we were thinking of the perfect location for our Summer 17 photoshoot the Maldives seemed like a no brainer. It’s the Maldives…duh! When you think of summer you envision water trickling down salty skin, swimming in water the bluest of blue, drinking coconuts and basking in sand so white you need sunnies for the glare. The Maldives had all of the above. Along for the ride was model Chloe lecareux and our board riding beauties Josie Prendergast and Flick Palmateer.
We arrived in Male and took a speed boat to the incredible Hudhuranfushi Resort located in the Male Atoll. Right out the front of our villa was the famous left break Lohis which the girls went to town on for the whole trip, the waves were pumping!
We dined on the most delicious cooked tuna and coconut dish with roti bread, visited the Surfers Bar of an evening to wind down over a drink and hung in the hammocks amongst swaying palms. When we needed even more of a palm tree fix we would venture to Cokes Island and stand in awe at the endless amount towering above us.
When our legs were tired from surfing perfect waves we would enjoy our time snorkelling the crystal clear waters and observing the beautiful array of sea life that came our way. Whale watching and dolphin spotting became a daily occurrence and we never grew tired of seeing them pop up beside our boat. Sometimes words don’t do a place justice, so here’s a clip to let you get the visual of…paradiso.
