Gurus is a nice lefthander that breaks on a reef in the middle of the sea on the east coast of the South Male Atoll. The wave shows its potential when the wind is from the north, northwest and the swell coming from the south-east with a size of at least 4 feet. The wave is fast and offers a beautiful wall for maneuvers, or even aerials depending on your level… This is one of the first passes that you will see while cruising from Malé and you will certainly not miss it if conditions are good. The anchorage is usually just after the nearby island of Guli. The next breaks going South are Twin peaks and Quarter… On the picture above you can see Mat Meola doing an aerial with his nice orange board during a boat trip in July 2013!
