Booga Reef, called Two Ways because it breaks to the left and the right, is located just across the pass from Five Islands. Really similar to Sultans and Honky’s in North Male Atoll—Two Ways (as the name promises) offers two incredible waves that peel in two different directions from the same southern point of the island. Two Ways is the kind of set up that surfers everywhere have been imagining for years, but never thought quite possible. Basically, Booga Reef is one of the many stops along your Maldives surf trip where dreams come true.
As opposed to the shallow and speedy surrounding waves, Two Ways offers slower waves that peel nice and easy through deeper water, a little less powerful, but great for intermediate surfers hoping to practice some more technical maneuvers that the three-second rides at their local break have not allowed. Protected a little bit more than the lefthander, the right is usually a bit bigger and holds its shape a little better than the left, but it also requires a bigger swell to reach its protected position.
With waves that typically range between three to six feet, Two Ways is that place on the Southern Atoll boat trip that everyone remembers with the word “fun” because it is a good spot for all levels and usually offers surf charters the best refuge when the southerly facing reefs are blown out or simply out of control. This, of course, means an increase in crowds, but remember you are dealing with two perfect waves—so there’s always the chance everyone else will be lining up for the righthanders, while you pull into left after left of pure bliss. Since it breaks in all levels of the tide, be sure to check this spot out during a southerly swell and in northerly winds to find it at its best.
