Maldives Wave: Inside Mikado

Central atolls

Meemu Thaa Laamu Inside Mikado

Inside Mikado

Inside Mikado is the perfect wraparound righthander you will find just to the east of Outside Mikado. The wave doesn’t really work on a low tide, meaning it is a little inconsistent, but it has the potential to be a total trip changer when it delivers on a mid to high tide. The waves are typically between 2-6 feet, and peel down the line like a landscape painting, with short but pristine barrel sections.

 Inside Mikado is better protected by Kanimeedhoo Island than Outside Mikado, and the chances for some barrel-time shade increase when the southwest wind starts blowing in from offshore during a south or southwest swell. The picture perfect line up will smear, however, if the west or northwest winds pick up.
