Malik’s is that incredible wave that doesn’t always want to cooperate and located on the inhabited island of Hirilandhoo. Malik’s has its good days and it has its bad days. It is not so much the tide as it is the swell and wind direction. Malik’s loves a south to southwest swell and easterly winds, the combination of the two being the trick to finding Malik’s on a good day—make that potentially incredible day. A cooperating Malik’s means a fast lefthander that can range anywhere from 3-10 feet, with nearly perfect Maldivian barrels — a must ride wave during your boat trip in the central atolls.
