Always dreamed of surfing in the Maldives? Now is your chance! Don’t miss out on the Indulge Maldives x Chix Surf School Maldives Surf Clinics, happening March 2020!

This is an all inclusive surf trip, with all accommodation, meals, island transfers, surfing transfers, water sports, excursions, yoga sessions & surfing video analysis sessions taken care of (alcohol excluded). This Indulge Maldives Retreat is designed to progress your surfing & technique, enhance your confidence in the water & give you an insight into local Maldivian island life. We will be staying in a new & modern 4-star Maldives hotel, Reef Edge, situated on the local island of Thulusdhoo (not a resort island). At the end of each day of tropical surfing, retreat back to your Ocean Front Balcony Room and watch palm trees sway to colourful glowing sunsets. All meals will be provided in each hotel’s own private restaurant or special outdoor dining areas. Expect selections of Western, Maldivian & Asian cuisines. All dietary requirements will be catered for.

The Indulge Maldives x Chix Surf School 2020 Maldives Surf Clinics are for women who have a passion for surfing & the ocean, who wish to transform their surfing through a series of intensive surf coaching, video analysis and body movement classes, in the high quality waves that Maldives offers.

Indulge Maldives & CHIX Surf School will be partnering with Reef Edge Hotel at Thulusdhoo Island (local island) for the 2020 Maldives surf retreat. All rooms offer picturesque ocean views & come complete with private balconies. The hotel is perched overlooking the side of Cokes surf break. Trees do block the actual surf point although you can roll out of bed & have a great idea of daily surf conditions and uninterrupted ocean views! Cokes surf break is just 1 minute walk from the hotel and Chickens surf break is just a short lagoon ride across to the neighbouring island. Ninja’s, Sultans & Jails surf breaks are all close by, requiring a 20 minute speedboat transfer (included in package).

"Hi my name is Jo Hills and I am a surfer chick from Tassie. My story starts like a lot of women from a change in their lives. Mine was the end of a 28 year marriage 8 years ago where I  found myself in a totally different world trying to cope on my own. Lucky for me my children had all left home and living there own lives. Its because of this I decided to try surfing. well lets just say I was hooked. To cut a long story short I travelled to Bali and met my one of best friends there , Dika . It was through Dika on a trip to his home town Medewi that I met Gee. Firstly I have to tell you how Gee and I met. 

It was committing the biggest sin in surfing that day, throwing my board. If you had seen the wave coming at me and not know how to duck dive properly you may have done the same.  Unlucky  for me Gee was behind me when I threw the board.  Looking back now I believe  it was my lucky day.  Luckily it didnt hit her but boy did I get a telling off. I was so sorry and felt terrible but definitely deserved it. After a good surf we got out and Dika walks up to a girl on the road and introduced us. It was Gee .  Omg we laughed and laughed and from that day and a chance meeting in the water that we have been best friends ever since.

As a result of this after many years I can now saftely say I dont throw my board and I’m a really good duck diver. Gee was my inspiration not only for her surfing ability but she is one  of the most caring beautiful humans I know. As great friends I took every advantage to go see Gee in Sydney  and lucky for me Gee started Chix SURF SCHOOL not long after we met. My love of the water and surfing increased ten fold when I started attending chix clinics and surf camps. Not only did I learn how to become a better surfer but watching my idol teach other women inspired  me to be an even better surfer.

I’ve been lucky enough to go on 2 1/2 maldives surf camps with Gee over the last 2 yrs.  . Unfortunately we were there when Covid broke out and even though I was there for 2 weeks being Gees and Kirstie’s unofficial work experience girl on the first camp I missed my camp . 
Positive out of all this I get to go back again when we can travel . 

I can not tell you how much of an experience it is to go on a trip with a group of women to a place like the maldives and hang with them in and out of the water. Not only do we encourage each other but we talk and laugh and discuss things that are great and not so great in our lives but we are get to surfing some of most beautiful waves in the world . Between Gee and Kristie Murray an Hupa they make the stay in the Maldives so easy and the best experience ever . 

As I say to Gee I’m you’re number one person on the top of the list for going on  any of these trips. Not only does it give me absolute joy to be in the water with other inspiring women but I have come away knowing I’ve improved by all the instruction that I’ve been given. Surfing and being in the water is my happy place and it’s through Gee and Chix Surf School I’ve had the time of my life and will continue to do so. I’d highly recommend that if you want to experience something that will bring you joy friendship and the best bonus ever to become a better surfer then definitely book a clinic or trip with Chix Surf School. I’m sure we will meet as I’ll probably be on most of them.

Frequently Asked Questions

CAN I COME SOLO?

Definitely! Our tropical retreats are designed especially for solo women who wish to experience a new destination and connect with other like-minded women, making new life-long friendships!

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR INDULGE MALDIVES RETREATS?

Yes, 18+. All retreat attendees must be over the age of 18 for legal reasons.

DO I NEED TO ARRANGE A VISA?

No. Maldives supplies a Free Visas On Arrival to all nationalities, subject to tourists being able to produce a confirmed reservation for each night of their intended stay, as well as a departing flight. You may be required to produce these to immigration upon entry into Maldives – Indulge Maldives will supply you with the correct documents.

WILL I NEED ANY EXTRA SPENDING MONEY?

Our aim is to make this Maldives surf retreat as inclusive as possible. You may need extra spending money for things such as additional excursions, snacks or souvenirs.

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE ALCOHOL?

As Maldives is a 100% Sunni Islamic country, meaning alcohol is prohibited except on resort islands. We have planned a resort day trip with an all inclusive drinks pass for you. There is currently a floating bar boat off Thulusdhoo Island. We cannot guarantee if it will be there in March, but if it is, you can take a USD$10 transfer & purchase alcoholic beverages on board for USD$6-15 per drink.

WHAT IS THE MAIN CURRENCY USED IN MALDIVES?

The main currencies used in Maldives are US Dollars & Maldivian Rufiya. On local islands, Maldivian Rufiya or USD is required to purchase items like souvenirs, snacks and extra activities & watersports. You can simply withdraw local currency from an ATM upon your arrival at the airport, at the ATM at Thulusdhoo Island, or you can exchange your cash at the airport.

WILL SOMEONE GREET ME AT THE AIRPORT?

Yes! From the moment you first arrive in Maldives you will experience our airport greeting service and will take a group private charter speedboat to our accommodation. Upon departure, we will return with you to the airport to ensure a smooth departure process.

IS THERE A RESTRICTION ON SURFBOARD SIZES?

No, however it is important to double check with your airline carrier. We encourage you to pack your surf boards very securely with lots of extra padding to prevent them being damaged upon your arrival in Maldives.

HOW MUCH FREE TIME IS THERE?

Most days there will be scheduled free time. This is an opportunity for you to engage in extra surfing, explore the island on your own terms, laze on the Bikini Beach, read a book or take an additional excursion.

AS MALDIVES IS A MUSLIM COUNTRY, DO I NEED TO DRESS MODESTLY?

As we will be staying on a local island, it is important to dress in accordance with Ministry of Tourism laws. This means a little modestly when moving through the village section of an island. We recommend packing 1-2 long skirts or dresses & 1-2  t-shirts, along with your normal casual day wear.

CAN I DRINK THE WATER IN MALDIVES?

No, not unless you like drinking salt water! The hotel will provide drinking water. It’s also easy to purchase extra water bottles from local shops, for around 30c for 1L. If you have a refillable drink bottle, this would be especially ideal to bring to help reduce our plastic impact during the retreat!

IS THERE A MINIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS REQUIRED?

Yes – we must have a minimum of 10 guests for the clinic to go ahead at the advertised price. As per our Terms & Conditions, if running the retreat is not deemed financially viable, Indulge Maldives reserve the right to cancel the retreat. Upon this type of cancellation, you will be refunded all monies previously paid to Indulge Maldives Holidays. However we will not reimburse any flights or travel costs already booked.
