Named after the Lohifushi Island it breaks off of, Lohis is comparable to Pasta Point in not only having hosted its fair share of WQS events, but also in housing an on-island resort that claims exclusive rights to the break. It is another incredible lefthander with a less than welcoming crowd. But since the resort onshore at Lohis doesn’t enforce as strict of a cap on the amount of surfers that can stay there, it tends to get much more crowded than Pasta Point.
Located to the north of Ninja’s (but on a different island), the left at Lohis lacks Pasta’s perfection but tends to stretch much longer. Its two main sections are both a little more inconsistent than some of the surrounding waves, and only a big southeast swell and high tides really connect them together. When they do connect they provide North Male Atoll’s trademark barrel ride—long and hollow. The outside section holds up much better in the monsoon winds, and breaks more consistently than the inside section. The inside section can turn to slosh and chop pretty quick when the winds get out of control and the strong current only adds to that hazard.
Lohis is definitely surfable at all stages of the tide, while reacting best to northwest and northeast offshore winds, and straight south and southwest swells. Head high to double overhead is Lohis at its best with the May to October season most ideal, although the bigger months—June, July, and August—also have the disadvantage of bringing the wind that can cause problems for the inside section.
