Air Equator Lefts
A two hour plus dhoni ride from Kanda Muli leads you to a largely unridden spot known as Air Equator Lefts. Located on the northeast point of Meedhoo Island, these fast and full barrels were first spotted by Andy Burr, the Air Equator airline pilot who became known as one of the first “local surfers” of the southern atolls. The remote location of Air Equator Lefts means it is almost never ridden and very few people come back reporting anything other than solitary barrels, zipping down the line one after another begging for some attention.
After a two hour plus dhoni ride, this is one of those spots you’re going to surf no matter what it looks like, but it always helps to know a little about what you’re heading towards. As a way of preview, it typically ranges from two to six feet, breaks over dead coral, and is best with a southerly swell. Northwest winds are offshore, and it handles all stages of the tide, so it is definitely one of those breaks you’d expect to be better more often than worse.
